Product Engineering & Industrial Design.
Quality software and connected devices
With operations spanning four continents – including a strategic partnership with SmartShape (USA and China) – Whitespace is uniquely positioned to accompany our global clients in UX strategy and research, digital and industrial design, software development, mechanical engineering, and integrated manufacturing.
Our integrated teams leverage a human-centered design approach to invent and develop concepts that set new standards for usability and ingenuity. The combination of design, engineering, and manufacturing capacity is key to ensuring quality product delivery at scale.
Everything is connected
Connected devices are changing the way we live. The Internet of Things (IoT) now covers everything from household appliances to touchscreen kiosks, parking meters, environmental monitoring systems, wearables, electric vehicles, and medical devices. And this is just scratching the surface.
When hooked up to the cloud and AI, the data collection and analytics potential of connected devices is staggering. Climate, health, and social scientists are just beginning to come to terms with the revolution heralded by "smart" objects.
Wherever you fall on the spectrum of "going digital", we have the breadth and depth of talent – as well as years of experience across multiple industries and geographies – to accompany you on your journey.
