F31

The F31 team


Graduates of business or engineering schools, we have a strong taste for numbers, technology, ergonomics and design. We also have a passion for intellectual challenges, achieved collectively.

What drives us: solving complex problems with simple, effective solutions that help you make the right decisions.

We pride ourselves on being a small, friendly team, offering everyone maximum autonomy and the possibility of extending our expertise into new areas.

Our values

Excellence

We think that every detail counts, and we place great importance on the quality of our deliverables.

Trust

We are passionate, committed and free to act with autonomy.

Happiness at work

We enjoy looking on the bright side and we share our enthusiasm with our colleagues and customers.

Our methodology

How we work:

  • Agile Methodology

Our projects are organized in one-week iterations. Each week, we schedule a progress review to present our work, collect your feedback and prioritise the next developments.

At the beginning of the project, we submit a proposal to validate the objectives, the schedule and the expected deliverables.

If your requirements change during the course of the project, certain developments may replace others initially planned.

  • Striving for excellence

We work with you throughout the project to ensure that the result will exceed your expectations.

Our dual financial and technical expertise enables us to take a step back from your problem, to look more closely at the issue you have expressed and to offer you a solution that is more effective than the one you imagined.

  • Speed

Our projects generally take place over a period of two weeks to three months (2 to 12 iterations).

They can be preceded by one or two pre-project iterations, dedicated to the completion of a POC or an audit of your needs.
