Design: Our creative work can create a unique, rich identity for your organisation, and in the process, drive interest, engagement and revenues.

It was encouraging to work with a developer whose platform was designed specifically to meet the needs of a professional member body and we haven’t been disappointed. Cantarus are professional to deal with and adopted a flexible approach to delivering the first phase of an app that we hope will come to be recognised and valued by members as a leading College benefit.  Achieving over 3,000 downloads within the first two months of launch, the app has easily exceeded our early usage expectations and we’ve received some brilliant member feedback. We’re now working with Cantarus on other key feature developments as well as the redesign of a College website. I would recommend Cantarus to any organisation considering building a member-facing app.

David Rich, Head of Customer & Creative

5 STARS! Cantarus clearly has vast knowledge and expertise in the mobile app development field and coupled with their down-to-earth approach made them the ideal partner to work with. My experience with their MemConnect team was excellent.  Key to our retail property and placemaking community is the ability to network.  Our unique member-to-member messaging feature allows our members to interact with each other year-round; easily and simply. From a soft launch end 2018 we have already noticed a 25% adoption rate of our members using the app and a 5-star average score across both app stores! Cantarus have a genuine passion and team commitment to produce outstanding work within the app/digital arena and I’d be very happy to recommend Cantarus to anyone looking to build a mobile app.

Little Troopers

Thanks to all the hard work from the team at Cantarus, I am really proud that we have been able to launch Little Troopers Treasures. Less than a month after launching we are already seeing the impact its having for families and the smiles it’s bringing to children’s faces.

Cantarus have given us a really powerful platform that we can use to start engaging our members. The seamless integration of our website and CRM delivers a much more coherent UX. We can’t wait to start making the most of it.

Nick David, Head of Digital
Royal Pharmaceutical Society

We were delighted with the dedicated resource library that Cantarus built, before then resources were spread across the website and filled by department so users had to guess who wrote them. The new section has an improved UX and is the now the 3rd most visited section.

Matt Winn, Head of IT Development

Cantarus provided us with a collaboratively-designed strategy and detailed Information Architecture that has enabled us to provide an exceptional user experience.
