Get to know us
Incorporated in 2006, rmd Studio was founded as a web app development company in Vancouver, 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 of 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, Sparc BC, and Vancouver Coastal Health.
Today our primary focus is developing enterprise web and mobile apps for scientific, healthcare, and industrial sectors. Since 2008, we have successfully deployed over 50 projects and studied thousands of hours of use-case scenarios in different industries.
Our clients hire us not only for our technical prowess but mainly for our track record of successfully executing their ideas!
Many projects have failed even though they’ve had some of the most brilliant engineers and developers onboard. Companies and investors take risks with their funds. Entrepreneurs take risks with their curiosities, grit, and sweat. All so they can execute their ideas successfully. That’s because executing an idea is hard. The ability to execute an idea is, however, scarce and precious.
