Why are we called
Frequency Foundry you ask?

You’ve worked with IT consulting firms that claim to build the most functional software which your users hate. You’ve worked with agencies and creative shops that build the fanciest User Interface that ever existed. But wondered why the two never got together? 

Here at the Foundry we create (foundry) solutions that allow you to resonate (operate on the same frequency) as your customers.

 

Our job isn’t done when your software is implemented.We strive to create the “wow” experience before, during and after every engagement we are part of.
