Deepend is experienced at enhancing a variety of existing systems with internet services – ranging from legacy Point of Sale (POS) software and ticketing and fulfilment platforms to modern day kitchen appliances. Our services enable brands to utilise the web as much more than a marketing platform, by introducing product innovations that encourage social engagement and richer business analytics.
We assist businesses with integrations, and provide remote interfaces as well as building middleware layers to safely couple existing systems to the internet.
And software services are just one element of our product innovation. We are increasingly witnessing an exciting growth in the ‘internet of things’, with more and more devices and physical appliances connecting to the internet – and in the process providing us with a dizzy array of possibilities for creative product evolution.
Deepend can guide you through the digital enabling aspect of your product development cycle with the application of technology evaluation; feasibility studies; and up-to-date advice on emerging technologies and associated markets. And we can help you evolve your product to take advantage of the next generation of internet services with creative workshops; technical prototypes; and research and development.

The Internet of Things
One of the most exciting new digital developments Deepend are following and driving is the ‘internet of things’.
Brought about by the convergence of well-established and pervasive internet technologies; the smart mobile revolution; and the explosion in user-friendliness and social relevance of apps and devices, the internet of things is bringing to life the urban dream of an intelligent home.
Deepend are currently working closely with household brands to develop next-generation household products that will bring the internet ‘out of the screen’ and into the real world.
Some initiatives gaining commercial momentum are poised to blur the augmented-reality boundary and enable a ‘screen-less’ interface into devices and internet services. These include near field communication (NFC), gesture and face-tracking, and digital paper and micro-projectors.
And if you combine a Natural User Interface (NUI) with the power of countless public APIs, a social network, analytics and a solid business SOA – we believe you have a seriously enabled appliance.
