Hello! My name is Ben.

I help people get their digital projects off the ground and into the cloud.

If you run a company, I can help you to explain your business needs and processes to technical teams and ensure that they build your software the right way. Please get in touch.

If you run an agency and need someone to gather requirements, write specifications, and build beautiful prototypes for your clients then please drop me a line

About Ben Grout

I am a digital producer and business analyst based in Brighton, UK.

I have over a decade of experience working with top digital agencies on projects for start ups, international brands, and publicly funded organisations.

Having been the Technical Lead at a digital agency for a number of years, I lead the design and development teams through the inception and delivery of many successful digital projects from beginning to end and beyond.

I can work with you from the initial kernel of a project concept all the way through the specification, UX prototyping, design, development and delivery phases. 

I have worked with one-man-bands, universities, and mega-corporations on a range of digital projects from CMS websites, business management systems, CRM integrations, and mobile apps.

Past clients include Twinings Tea, The Chemical Brothers, Glyndebourne, Philips, Lufthansa, and The Telegraph to drop but a few names.

Recent work

Cab:app

Role: Business Analyst and Project Manager
AgencyAecor

As the Business Analyst and Project Manager I was responsible for leading the knowledge transfer of the Cab:app platform between the outgoing agency and Aecor.

By managing contact between the two technical teams we were able to smoothly handover the day-to-day running of the hosting infrastructure and maintenance of the apps.

Retrospective functional and technical documentation was produced to ease the orientation of new developers and the product backlog was organised and managed in collaboration with the client to ensure progress could be made.

Euro-sportring

Role: Business Analyst, Information Architect, and Project Manager
AgencyAecor

Expanding on a basic set of user requirements I created a detailed specification for a centralised website creation platform which is designed to serve over 80 different sites for international football and handball tournaments.

Following the specification, I delivered a wireframe prototype of the CMS and website template and presented it to the client.

Working with the design and development team we created an accurate schedule for the project which was delivered on time and to spec.

CLH Pipeline Systems

Role: Business Analyst
Agency: Aecor

Running a workshop with the client to map some of their processes elicited a good number of requirements that fed into a feasibility report for a new works management platform.

Having presented the report to the development team we were able to produce a proposal and estimate.

I am currently available to work on new projects. If you'd like to discuss your plans, then please drop me a line.
