NHS Trailblazers Image

NHS Trailblazers

We're assisting NHS England with the launching of a new online Mental Health education resource for 12 -18-year-olds in at-risk areas.


Running alongside the incredible work the NHS trailblazers team is currently doing in at-risk communities across the UK, Arch is helping increase the reach of the programme to a web-based platform that will bring mental health services to all, nationwide.



service will include educational resources on wellbeing and mental health, and provide a safe, private zone for children to access verified information and support for their mental health. We can't wait to share with you the ideas we have for these services on launch. Look out for the new NHS Trailblazers service, going live in late 2020, developed by Arch in partnership with NHS England.
Raspberry Pi for St Vincent's Liverpool Image

Raspberry Pi for St Vincent's Liverpool

.Arch was engaged by accessible technology proliferators, A11hacks to create a treasure hunt style game for St Vincent’s School in Liverpool, a school that specialises in the education of children with sensory impairments.


The initial concept was to use a beacon of some kind, emitting a signal back to a centralised device, that would be able to translate that signal into sound, a sort of rudimentary radar. To do

this, we utilised a set of Raspberry Pi mini-computers which acted as the receiver for the beacon, as well as the translator of that signal to sound, paired with a set of headphones, the students we able to take advantage of a small scale, handheld and robust receiver.


The issue of finding a beacon called for a specific set of requirements. They had to be equally as robust as the receiver, cost-effective and have the ability to be repositioned easily to change the layout of the treasure hunt. The Estimote Bluetooth beacon hit all of the criteria, with the edition of having the form factor of an irregular prism, which was easily distinguishable to the students from any object they would typically come into contact with.


Through our work the students we able to easily engage with the possibilities of technology for sensory impaired individuals, wrapped in an activity that could be enjoyed by all.

SuperSpeller | e-learning platform Image

SuperSpeller | e-learning platform

Super Spellers is a new e-learning platform based around improving a child's experience of learning new words, spellings, and sound. Bought to life through a series of spelling games which have been designed to support children aged 5-11.


New tests show 1 in 4 struggling with spelling, punctuation and grammar. Figures for reading, writing and maths assessments taken by more than half a

million 11-year-olds.


Superspellers have set off on a mission to work with schools initially across the UK to roll out the new platform. This platform, like those that have been launched to support learning maths, will be in a position to help assist in how children learn and enhance their spelling experience.  


The mobile responsive web-based is made up of 3 fun interactive game zones. The games will cover weekly spellings, spell the missing word in a sentence and a challenge to spell longer more exciting words.

Each student will have their own unique superhero character. By playing the games they will earn rewards such as coins and superpowers to allow their character to become the ultimate superhero! The results will be recognised in a leaderboard. Teachers will be able to access a teacher zone to set their weekly spellings and monitor students results through an advanced admin portal. 


The full platform is currently in development with Arch and we're excited to go live in Q1 2020.

Tinnitus, described as a sensation or awareness of sound that is not caused by an external sound source, affects approximately six million people in the UK at present – ten percent of the UK's population.



When you feel safer your auditory system switches off its hyper-vigilance and ignores background sounds inside your body and in the environment around you. Quieten gives you lots of practical advice learnt from hard-earned clinical and personal experience. Safe, healthy practices help your hearing settle naturally.

Pidgeon Electric Vehicle platform Image

Pidgeon Electric Vehicle platform

Pidgeon appointed Arch to deliver a website discovery project for a new EV platform. So why is discovery so key for Arch? Put simply:


Discovery allows us to understand what function the website needs to perform to support your business goals. Without this knowledge, the launch will only deliver generic results.


Enter the website discovery session for Pidgeon, a meeting between the

project team and client to understand the business and technical + creative needs of there website inside out. We used this time to ask questions such as:


What are your goals?

What is your strategy?

How do you operate?

Where can a website support this activity?


The deliverables:

The answers to these questions armed us with the knowledge to deliver a bespoke website scope, with recommendations as to: 

  • How best to engage the core audience of the site.
  • Which technology to use, along with any third-party APIs.
  • The best features to focus the budget against.
  • Future roadmap considerations.
  • As well a project sprint plan that gets us to go-live in a timely manner.


We also expanded into:

  • Business goals
  • The target market
  • The goals of the website
HeyYo - iOS prototyping  Image

HeyYo - iOS prototyping

HeYo is a new mobile platform being developed across iOS & Android. This new app will help students to connect with other like-minded students when new to campus or a city.

The Challenge

HeYo is currently raising funds through a series of private investors. They had been asked as part of

their pitch deck to come forward with how the UI and UX could look. After a competitive pitch between 5 other agencies Arch was selected to lead on defining this and developing the required prototype.

The Solution

After consultation and undertaking discovery it was decided to focus the initial prototype on 'explore' 'connect' and 'relate'. The UI needed to provide a smooth user journey from uploading and editing to setting up events and finding new friends. It needed to do it with a sense of style that would ensure users would keep coming back, and positively share their experience with friends.

The results

Over a 3 week period discovery and the prototype was completed. Allowing HeYo to have the required material to take to their investors. The feedback so far has been amazing and has been well received. HeYo is now well on track to make a full raise and we can't wait to start the full platform development. Follow the HeYo journey:

All Season | Tablet app Image

All Season | Tablet app

The Client

All Seasons Leisure Sales is a family run business in County Durham and has been converting and selling campervans for over a decade. Their business is constantly expanding and their overall goal is to become more widely known across the whole of the UK and Europe.

We worked with ASLS to develop a system for them which would then form the foundation of a larger scope of work, based both

on requirements they have now, and those that lie ahead.

The Challenge

All Seasons Leisure Sales were having a big issue with tracking van conversions. At the time that they approached us their old system was paper-based, manual and extremely time-consuming. They had no easy way of receiving orders from third-party partners and no clean way of keeping track of a vans progress through the conversion process.

They required a solution that would be available online and accessible 24/7, would work on portable tablet devices as well as desktop, and one which would be able to handle different user roles with a complex variety of permissions. It would need to allow partners to submit jobs via the system for ASLS approval. It should be able to handle multiple internal faculties, allow staff to quickly see the specifications of a van upon request and include an email alerting system.

The Solution

We used our in-house framework and existing modules to produce a feature-rich, entirely scalable system. We built this as a web application so it would be available online 24/7 and work responsively across various devices, as requested by the client.

A fully fledged Role Based Access Control system (RBAC) allowed for multiple roles and permissions, with an overriding control by admin accounts. A clever integrated event system allows for emails to be scheduled or triggered on demand and the system keeps track of paint, upholstery, interior, exterior and more.

The Results

The new All Seasons system went into production and on completion, all staff was successfully moved over from the paper-based system to the new online solution within weeks. Feedback suggests that the new system met all of our client’s niche requirements and is being fully utilised within the business exactly as we’d hoped.

We’re now in talks with All Seasons Leisure Sales to work with them on their new project, a solution to help take care of their concerns regarding stock control, and we can’t wait to get moving on this next phase of work.

True Student App Image

True Student App

The Client True Student develop and let exclusive student accommodation within the city centre, close to universities. Their aim is to help students make the most of their university years with the help of the True organised events, facilities and team.With the True accommodation being a premium product, they aspire to be the best in their market, and as part of this they wanted to be able to boast a technological USP. In the

future, True has ambitions to expand to more apartments and to offer new tech on an ongoing basis.The ChallengeTrue wanted a tech solution which their tenants could use to get the most of their student experience. There was an existing website and they required us to work together with the agency who built it to port key information through to a new app we would be developing. This would need to hook into the existing website’s API.The solution would need to keep the users informed and up to date on these key items and alerts regarding their particular apartment. The new app should also allow facility booking and then push personalised offers and reminders to the students. True also plan to be able to unlock doors remotely with the app and smart lock at some point in the future.The SolutionWe designed and built two native mobile apps, one for iOS and one to work on Android. The apps offered user profile creation and social media logins. It also allowed True to push offers and promotions directly to the studentsThe individual push notifications we built into the app functionality now allow for fine grained targeting, and we’ve provided the ability to view diary listings, events and facilities. The app then features booking capability. so that students can make use of the True benefits and socialising perks directly through the app and make their own arrangements. We built to allow for the integration of a remote door unlocking functionality later.The ResultsThe successful launch of the new app was the start of an exciting time for True. The app is now offered to all students, when signing up for an apartment, as part of the full-service package that True provide. The app is used for daily promotions and push notifications across the company. We’re now really looking forward to a potential phase two with the door unlocking feature and hope to continue to do innovative work with True in the future.
Student Portal & app Image

Student Portal & app

The Client

Northumbria University has a global reputation for academic excellence and working relationships with a host of major employers, including Nike, IBM, Nissan, Proctor & Gamble, the BBC, and the NHS.

Since 2007, Arch have had our own long term and very successful relationship with Northumbria. We’ve previously worked with them on a website for their sports facilities and also provided

both print and digital artwork, so when they approached us for a new platform we were eager to be involved.

The Challenge

Northumbria didn’t have a reliable platform for students to develop and test their skills for some of the core uni modules. The new solution would also need to work with the existing student database within Northumbria Uni. The university staff required the ability to retain full overriding control over all student accounts.

The students themselves needed to be able to host PHP, HTML, CSS and Javascript in a safe and properly configured environment. Ideally students should be able to access a MySQL database, terminal and SFTP, while also having access to a webserver to host their HTML content. This would need to then be fully locked down to individual student containers for security.

The Solution

We designed Northumbria Uni a linux based online server solution. This consisted of unlimited jailed user environments and allowed staff to enable or disable access as and when they required..

The student profiles automatically loaded from the university database and students have full STFP, SSH and MySQL access to the server. A 24/7 monitoring and alert system was also included.

The Results

Northumbria Uni were really pleased with the solution. It’s still used as a core uni resource each academic year and we’ve worked with them on many upgrades over the years. It’s now some 13 years later and the system is still going strong!

 DMA (Direct Marketing Association) Image

DMA (Direct Marketing Association)

The DMA (Direct Marketing Association) approached us to develop a brand new website, from the ground up to better represent their business as well as offer a cutting edge service to their users.  ARCH developed a CMS (Content Management System) from the ground-up for the DMA site that they could manage all of their own content, as well as members, organisation profiles and exclusive events.  We also revolutionised the way in

which content was delivered to their user base.  Instead of the traditional way that users find content by navigating around your website, the DMA website pushes content feeds directly to the users 'wall' based on their interests and previous website activity.

We also developed a single point of authentication for the DMA with their website using OAuth2 technology.  This means that users who access any of the DMA's we resources, including their awards system can do so from one central place.  No need to remember multiple passwords!

We are also in the process of fully integrating the DMA website and membership system into a brand new CRM system in order to reduce administration time/cost and improve efficiency for the organisation.
