Health is our field,
digital our path
Healthcare is a most demanding environment in which to deliver digital solutions. Strong from its long experience in the domain, our structured and multi-disciplinary team can guide you through, from strategy and design, to multi-platform development, to approvals and delivery.
On Earth there are 14 mountains that stand at over 8000 meters above sea level. To conquer them all is the ultimate challenge in mountaineering. As in mountaineering our days consist of:
Planning & team spirit,
Trust & patience,
Challenges & creativity
To reach the highest summits mountaineers need to be ambitious, committed and strong willed. They need to expect the unexpected, and be prepared to adapt. They need to believe in their skills and in their team.
Such is also the way we take on our projects: with ambition, commitment and strength of will to reach the goal, with flexibility to adapt, with strong team spirit.
Perhaps that’s why our clients say it’s easy to work with us? We don’t know, but anyway when it happens it makes our day.
Mountaineering requires rigorous preparation: plan the ascent, understand the terrain and assemble the tools. At 14eight we value research and detailed planning. Whether it involves online insights mining, evaluating different technical solutions or discovery workshops, we work hard to identify where we’re going and the best way to get there.
Adapt as you go
The best preparation in the world can’t always stop mountaineers getting caught out. Equipment can break; inclement weather can render a simple ascent impossible. Effective project management is something on which we pride ourselves, and we have the experience to rapidly adapt when the need arises. Our goal is to reach the summit, not to follow a plan.
A success is a success, size doesn’t matter.
Mountaineering is not only about reaching the places no-one has yet to tread. It is also about overcoming personal and shared challenges. For us, the size of the challenge is not what matters. When a client has a goal it becomes our goal and we do everything possible to help them reach it, because we know that no summit is too low or too easy and that a success is a success, it’s as simple as that.
A strong team has a bright future
The story of mountaineering is written by great teams with strong bonds. From the earliest English explorers, through the hippy revolution in Yosemite right up to the speed mountaineering of today, team alchemy and the right mix of skills and personalities, backstage or front, has led to great results. We love to team up with our clients to reach the summits together, and to maintain a strong relationship based on trust and mutual understanding. A first success is for us often just a first step in a long line of all new challenges.
Reaching the summits
It is the core of 14eight, the driving force of the agency, the right blend of skills, know-how and human qualities. We love to work together, as much because we get on well as because we are all different. The result is not only great solutions; it keeps the daily routine rich in exchanges.

A week at 14eight
14eight’s TIPS - excited
What’s the best way to start a new week? Our solution is to gather together for fifteen minutes to listen to a colleague present something new in our domain, and to discuss its impact.
It’s a great way to kick start the week, stay fresh and remain conscious of the expertise of our colleagues.
ComEx - motivated
Managing a company requires constant effort, but sometimes you get caught up in the daily routine and lose your vision. At 14eight a dedicated committee meets every Tuesday to focus on understanding the present and deciding for the future.
The ComEx thinks about the entire team and the context in which we operate, and looks for the right synthesis. It’s how we grow as a company and as a team.
Business development - optimistic
We are not the kind of team that feels comfortable doing the same things over and over again. We like to find and accept new challenges. We like to help our clients evolve.
That’s why a part of our team gets together on a Wednesday to research the market and discuss the challenges our individual clients face, so we can take our thoughts to them and grow our respective futures together.
WORK @ HOME - relaxed
Everyone talks today about finding the right work-life balance. As a general rule we’re quite pragmatic, and this topic is no exception.
In a tradition that we’ve held since the outset, any member of our team can if they wish choose to work from home on a Thursday. We think that offering this freedom is demonstrating mutual trust, and trust plays a huge part in teamwork.
Want to know what we have learned? Easy! No negative impact upon productivity, happier people.
Project reviews - focused
First thing every morning of every day of the week, our project teams take 15 minutes together to take stock and check how they are tracking.
On a Friday afternoon, our project owners get together and look at how next week is shaping up. Everyone shares their challenges and together solutions are found.
It’s not rocket science, but it really helps us keep everyone involved and every project on track.
