Our story

We were born to innovate, to not just stand on the shoulders of the giants who built our industries, but to elevate their ambitions, to take their inventions and to bring them to the digital age. We are the founders of the Digital Factories of the future - we can apply any technology to make your business the best, the most agile and among the most successful on the planet. Our ambition always has been, and always will be, to build excellence.

We started out small, as a side project, with big dreams of making businesses and processes better and importantly, having fun on the way.

We’ve grown, a lot. Our focus hasn’t changed but the scale of the challenges we undertake and who we take them on with, have.

We launched in 2009 (traditional side hustle... you know the story) and then demand got big, so in 2014 things got serious.

We move within the constantly changing world of tech, so for us standing still with a single industry application isn’t relevant.

We work with all sizes of business, from start-ups to FTSE 100 organisations.

Our specialism

On top of our passion, innovation and commitment to solving some of the hardest issues businesses and organisations face globally, we are also Microsoft Technology Specialists, strengthened by our certified Microsoft Gold Partnership.

Everything we do starts with people and can end with everything from integrations to mobile apps to web applications to Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning.

Jamie Hinton <> Chief Executive Officer

Most people who deal in software see it in code. Jamie sees it in living and breathing opportunities – that if applied in the right way – can not just bring real value, but supercharge any organisation.

Beginning his career writing scripts to automate his own job as a data uploader at one of Sheffield’s (then) largest technology agencies, it is this mindset of ceaseless innovation which gave life to Razor and its mission to always stay on the sharp edge of technology.

At Razor he challenges his team to think bigger. To harness the power of automation, VR, machine learning and focused design thinking to enhance business functions, experiences and intelligence beyond the client’s expectation.

Jamie has worked with major brands including Alfa Romeo, Co-Operative Bank, HCCi Dyson, Virgin Trains and South Staffs Water.

His acute attention to detail and ability to manage multiple information systems position him perfectly to oversee the end-to-end operations of our business. Steve also has a keen interest in forming team structures and processes to facilitate continuous improvement.

Katy Hinton <> Chief of Staff

Katy is Chief of Staff and has been part of Razor since the very beginning.

Formally an Events Manager, Katy took the decision to switch careers when the business grew and required more than just an extra hand. The digital sector was new and interesting, fast-paced and very different. But people remain the same in all industries.

Organised and methodical, Katy leads the non-core aspects of the business and is responsible for the welfare and development of the team, the physical and imperceptible environment, cost management, compliance and a host of other challenges.

Katy is the go-to who makes things happen and puts collective ideas into practice for the benefit of our business, the individuals, and the teams within.
