Every DCSL GuideSmiths employee learns our values from their first day. We operate through these values that are at the centre of our culture of successful outcomes and focus on delivery.

Our values are:

Deliver quality in a timely manner
 

Deliver quality in a timely manner

We not only deliver great quality software, but we strive to deliver it in the timescales that align with your expectations. It is as important to us as it is to you that software is delivered properly, on time and on budget.

Collaboration and pragmatism are at our core
 

Collaboration and pragmatism are at our core

We solve complex problems quickly and efficiently by collaborating and sharing knowledge in our 300+ team. We share our successes and reflect & learn lessons as a team. And we do this in a pragmatic way to ensure we deliver quality in a timely fashion.

Ship consistently and regularly
 

Ship consistently and regularly

The Agile Manifesto states that software teams should “deliver working software frequently, from a couple of weeks to a couple of months, with a preference to the shorter timescale.” A key value of DCSL GuideSmiths is to follow Agile principles in every aspect of our working lives.

Live in our customers’ shoes

When a project is delivered successfully, we’ll share that success and take pride in our work. But if there are problems or misunderstandings, we’ll work tirelessly to resolve any issues and see things from your perspective.

Giving our very best with fun and pride
 

Giving our very best with fun and pride

Everybody in the DCSL GuideSmiths team knows that they must always be going the extra mile for our clients, but at the same this is only possible if we enjoy what we are doing. Not only do we have fun whilst making our clients’ dreams come to reality, we are really proud of what we achieve on a day to day basis, too.

Stay open, honest and transparent
 

Stay open, honest and transparent

We’ll be honest with you about the project, requirements, costs and timescales. We’ll keep you updated every step of the way, and we work transparently so that you can see what we’re doing without anything being hidden. We’re honest with one another in the company just as we are with our client.
