About Giant Hat

We build the software you wish you had.

Our Promise:
We will take the time to truly understand your ideas, your problems, and your market.

What differentiates the best?
There are two baseline reasons to build software: to make money and/or save time. But these just get you in the door. They don’t fundamentally change the way you do business, or bring your industry into the future. There’s a third reason that’s often glossed over that can make the difference between a product that people will like, and what catapults you to the top: delight.

This means building software your users are excited to have in their life. They’re not just willing to pay for your product, but happy to do it, because they couldn’t imagine their life without it. Producing this kind of joy doesn’t happen by mistake.

We can give you access to this future:

Clarifying and prioritizing what truly differentiates you and your idea.
Being equipped with technological clarity so you always know what the right next step is.
Turning user feedback into features and services they truly need, not merely what they say they want.
Experimenting with ideas and finding the right answers.
Providing you with a development team you can trust to do the right thing for you and your users without even having to ask.

Giant Hat took our vision with great care and understanding and built out a custom HIPAA-compliant API and user facing product which finally took our services to market for the first time!”
