We improve group decisions

gigmade is an innovation and IT company. We build custom web software to improve how you work together on innovation projects.

Uncertainty is a group strength.

As a decision-maker in innovation today, you decide under uncertainty and justify decisions to your organization. But your organization are your experts. Your decisions are good when you maximize your experts' creative input and alignment. We build software that helps you maximize participation of your experts in all decisions - to improve decisions and their adoption.

We are your partner for software-facilitated group decisions.

Our expertise is in facilitating group decision-making through software to avoid more meetings or changing work culture. Our custom-built group decision solutions work on the following principles:

  • Aggregate your data as a foundation for decision-making
  • Make the decision process transparent, so stakeholders can embrace it
  • Put the protection of personal data first

How we work together



  • We analyze your needs and stakeholders with a holistic view.
  • We design your custom group decision process using a mix of cutting-edge scientific literature research and our existing technology.
  • We communicate solution concepts through visual demos.


  • We build your project using state-of-the-art web technologies.
  • We split larger projects into milestones, each delivering a standalone benefit to your users. We continuously align with your users' needs.
  • After each completed milestone, we review and adjust the project for maximum impact.


  • We identify and collaborate with the best experts in your field, for science and programming.
  • We stay agile and prioritize your users' needs.
  • We build for platform scalability, so you're free to onboard 100 times more users than planned.
