Case study

NAfW

During a discovery phase Box UK worked with the National Assembly for Wales (NAfW) to redefine their web presence and shape their digital future.

The team managed product vision workshops and undertook user research to better understand stakeholder and user needs, conducting a number of activities bilingually to gain comprehensive feedback. The insight gathered informed a user-centred Minimum Viable Project aligned with NAfW’s core objectives, to help signpost a programme of future website design and development activity.

What kind of projects do we work on?

Attracting the brightest and best digital talent to its South Wales headquarters, Box UK recruits from purposely diverse backgrounds to offer an unrivalled depth and breadth of experience.

Case study

GPWales

As the pressure being faced by GP surgeries increased massively in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic, GP Wales made the decision to accelerate development of their Locum Hub, which focuses specifically on securing temporary locum cover for shifts within general practice.

With the support of Box UK, the updated Locum Hub Wales platform offers a user-friendly, high-performance online jobs and shifts database, and represents a huge step forward in the digitisation of Wales’ healthcare services.

"Excellent training. The theories and principles were given practical context and we left with great advice that we could take away and start using immediately. I learned a lot."
