About Us


We are in beautiful Gastown, Vancouver, BC, Canada.

 


Our History

Incorporated in 2006, rmd Studio was founded as a web app development company in Vancouver, BC, Canada. We were specialized in developing online learning, eCommerce, and content management systems. Some of the projects that we developed were an online learning management system (LMS) for 5 medical schools in British Columbia, an enterprise LMS used for delivering character development courses to hundreds and thousands of K12 students in Canada and US, and an email campaign management system for a well known Canadian smartphone manufacturer which was used in CES and CTIA consumer electronic shows.

With the advent of iPhones in 2008 we were hired by a team of doctors to develop iOS medical apps and that’s how we became the first mobile app development company in Vancouver. Since then our portfolio of enterprise mobile clients has grown to include industry leaders such as LafargeHolcim (World’s largest cement manufacturer), MMG (Mineral Mining Group), VAISALA (a global leader in environmental and industrial measurement). We have also developed web and mobile solutions for non profit organizations such as WorkSafe BC, Fraser Institute, and Vancouver Coastal Health.

A Reliable Point Of Care

Today our primary focus is developing enterprise web and mobile apps for science, medicine, and industry. Since 2008, we have successfully deployed over 50 projects for our clients and studied thousands of hours of their use case scenarios in different industries. What we learned was how to make complex scenarios simple and make simple compelling when offering technology solutions.

Our primary focus is developing enterprise web and mobile apps for science, medicine, and industry.
