Global software design and development leader continues dynamic growth of capabilities and resources to help clients deliver improved customer experiences
CHICAGO – Sept. 11, 2018 – projekt202, the leader in experience-driven design and development, today announced its expansion into the Chicago region with the successful acquisition of ORA, an award-winning user experience and digital product studio.
“Our team is extremely excited about this new stage of growth,” said Mike Kelly, CEO of ORA and newly-named General Manager of projekt202 Chicago. “Joining projekt202 allows us to help clients in the Chicago market improve their customer and employee experiences across all the potential moments in the digital journey.”
Said projekt202 CEO David Lancashire, “Last year, businesses around the world reached a crucial tipping point, as more than half of all people accessing the web did so via mobile devices rather than using their desktops. The ORA team’s deep strengths in mobile enable us to further support our clients at this very important touchpoint. We’re proud to welcome ORA to projekt202.”
The Chicago team has created an impressive array of mobile software for a diverse roster of client partners, including Chervon, PolarityTE, Allstate, InterPark, Second City and McKesson, among many others.
