How we work.
A blueprint for effective delivery.
The foundation of any successful enterprise lies in the approach you take. We realise that applying a static, off-the-shelf methodology doesn't work. Our blueprint is a foundation onto which we adapt for every project to meet the needs of the client.
The Equator Process
An open, agile framework
Our process has been developed and optimised over 1000s of projects and is regularly audited by clients and ISO (9001) to confirm it's effectiveness. Overall, the process uses the best of both project management worlds - the governance of Prince2 and the transparency of Agile. Within the process there are three core phases. The first - Insights - is where we build our understanding of all the influencing factors and objectives. In the Connections Phase we collaboratively create solutions. The Results Phase is all about launching and continually enhancing highly effective work that builds stronger connections with your customers.
Your business, your partners and our experts all working together.
We create multi-disciplinary teams made up of your stakeholders, partners, our in-house expertise and, where possible, audience stakeholders too. Depending on project needs, the team can be housed in our studios or in your offices. Wherever they are, our approach to open communication and agile management delivers experiences that are created efficiently, meet customer needs and exceed business objectives.
High standards set and proven.
We set high standards at Equator and we pride ourselves on them. We support these standards with annual, independent auditing. You and your customers’ data is of the utmost importance, right? It’s serious enough to us that we measure ourselves against the most stringent of standards in ISO 27001 Information Security and PCI-DSS. We’re equally rigorous about how we work. To ensure that our governance is robust and effective, we adopt the ISO 9001 Quality Management standard. Not only do we care about your business and your customers, we care about the environment too. As a result, we are also accredited with ISO 14001 Environmental Management Systems.
