Mark Mihailovs

Developer

I have always been passionate about technology and the future which is why I chose to study scripting and programming. Ever since then I've been exploring all parts of programming, learning and researching all types of technologies and programming languages.

Kieran Oldham

Developer

I'm the new blood around here. I'm an incredibly ambitious self-taught individual who takes time and care in the finer details. I am full of ideas and have constantly kept myself up to date with the latest technologies and languages allowing me to utilise the very cutting edge of what today's technology has to offer.

Robert Bain

Developer, Co-founder

Rob started out in electronics and spent 6 years designing and building electronics for an automated machine controller company. After gaining some experience with the programming language C, he decided to go to university and obtained a full honours degree in Game Development specialising in C++. This led to a 5-year employment as a lead UK developer for a New Zealand based security software company where enough skills were gained to branch out and create Reactive Studios alongside Danny. Rob is also often saying to people “Doing this job is made so much easier by knowing that this is my hobby and my passion”. Rob relishes new challenges, has a thirst for development.

Daniel Robinson

Developer, Co-founder

Daniel has been working in the development industry professionally for the last 10 years. As a completely self-taught web developer, Daniel has worked hard to make a name in the industry. He is a self-confessed nerd and takes great pleasure and pride in his work, often going above and beyond the scope of tasks he takes on. Daniel specialises in the most widely used web technologies and is often quoted as saying “if you can think of it, we can build it”. Over the last few years as well as expanding his knowledge of all web based technologies Daniel has been fine-tuning his project management and leadership skills and is always actively seeking new ways to improve on everything he undertakes.


Our Story...

Based out of Southport on Manchester Road, Reactive Studios offers all forms of software development from simple websites to large scale web and mobile applications. Born out of a hobby, Reactive Studios was initially set up by Daniel and Robert as a playground where two developers from different development backgrounds could come together and produce some internal applications purely for enjoyment. By February 2016 Reactive Studios was already working with blue chip companies such as United Utilities and The Murphy Group. Towards the middle of 2016, Reactive Studios spotted a huge gap in the Domiciliary Care and Home Care market for a mobile and web based application with NFC technology. This application known as Oneplan Software would be designed to help care providers offer a much more efficient service thus providing their clients a much higher standard of care. Since then Reactive Studios has gone from strength to strength. Acquiring our first office in 2017 and our own dedicated sales team working exclusively on selling the Oneplan system based out of Ormskirk. In 2018 Reactive Studios expanded its own team to include three influential investors and took on a new full time developer for the Oneplan system. As of 2019 Reactive Studio’s product Oneplan can be found in all corners of the UK having a customer base of over two hundred companies with four thousand daily users of the system. In the first half of 2019 Oneplan has already been responsible for over one million home care visits and by the end of 2019 we expect this number to be upwards of three million. For the first time since 2017 Reactive Studios is opening its doors to look for some new and exciting opportunities and working partnerships.



The Idea.

Reactive Studios was founded back in 2015 by reunited school friends Rob and Danny. Both had come from development backgrounds and were fed up of the current state of the software industry. Companies over charging clients because the client has no idea how software works. So they decided to start a company and take on issues

The Launch.

Rob and Danny's enthusiasm led to the crossing of paths with our partners, OPBS who had multiple customers in dire need of a cutting edge domiciliary care system. A deal was struck and after many months of hard long development, Oneplan was born.

Progression.

Fast forward a few years and Oneplan is one of the fastest growing domiciliary care systems in the UK with major updates still being released monthly (sometimes daily). To cope with this new growth we brought on our first development manager Kieran to help with both the development of Oneplan and our various other services and projects.

The Goal.

To be a successful, honest and fun company. Isn't that what we all want? Isn't this the reason you are here looking at us?

Our Process...

Step 1

Contact

Working with any business can be a bit of a gamble. Its like starting a new relationship. Until you both get to know each other its anybodies guess if its going to work or if youre talking to the right people. Thats why we like to get to know our clients. Our first few meetings will be getting to know you and your ideas. This helps us build you better software.

Step 2

Consultation

After the first few meetings we can begin to delve deeper into your ideas. Here we will listen to everything that you want in your product and offer suggestions based upon years of experience and your likes and dislikes. Software should not only be something that works well for your customer but be something you should be proud of. Thats where our experience comes in.

Step 3

Quote

Quoting for software is as straight forward as any other industry. Once we are all happy that we have covered all bases, the plan for the software is created. From this plan we can estimate a cost for your product and a timeframe. As the product moves from paper into digital reality there will be changes. We will keep you informed every step of the way to make sure there are no nasty suprises.

Step 4

Development

This is the part nobody sees. Where an idea becomes reality. Development times can vary from product to product. Websites are normally straight forward and take only a few weeks. Software an apps can take from months to years. Most software companies go away and come back with a complete product that may resemble what you asked for. Our way is different. We like you to be involved, to see it grow. Not only does this help the end product but it keeps everybody motivated and excited right the way through the process.
