  • Loft Digital has worked on our Cyclescheme products since 2007. They are delightful to work with and the quality of service provided by Loft has been a key factor in Cyclescheme’s success. Their agile, iterative approach and the close cooperation between their team and ours has allowed excellent strategic support and fast delivery of new features to minimise risk and maximise ROI. I would absolutely recommend their services.

    Harmeet Chhabra

  • Following the launch of our new brand last year it was vital that we redeveloped our site to ensure that it meets all our brand values – uncorporate, positive and direct.
