About Us

Bristol is known for its creative and vibrant atmosphere, and Cotham Technologies are proud to part of the growing tech community in the South West. We were founded in the city and continue to be passionate about developing Bristol as a major UK tech hub.

Our Mission

We want custom apps to be available to everyone so our focus is on making the development process as simple and straightforward as possible. Our flagship product, FloFrame, is an innovative, patent-filed “no-code” platform that radically reduces the time and cost of an app build compared to traditional fully coded development. With a range of standard “Flos” as well as the option to create custom blocks, complete beginners can create an app whilst experienced developers can create world-class apps with unprecedented velocity and scale.

We Understand your Challenges

With digital transformation at the forefront of many organisations’ strategy, being able to develop and update mobile compatible software is no longer an optional task. We work with you from concept to implementation to enable you to create the apps that will fully serve your users’ needs as well as supporting your wider business goals. With a full range of services, we can help you whether you are an international organisation looking to licence our platform for your in-house team or an SME looking for one-off app development support.

“We aim to transform the market for mobile app design and development in the way that WordPress has radically altered the landscape for web design and development.”

Our Ethos

Cotham Technologies was founded with the goal of redefining how apps are developed.  Our mission statement is “Easier, faster, smarter app creation for all” and this is reflected in everything we do. Our FloFrame platform pioneers no-code native app development, empowering app creators to create, test and build with speed and agility like never before. The patent-filed technology behind the platform is simple for individuals and small businesses to use, but powerful enough to deliver enterprise-grade apps for global corporations and international organisations.

The growing proliferation of smart devices means organisations are having to embrace mobile centric business processes and customer solutions as the new normal.

Cotham Technologies creates agile, flexible products that enable the rapid development of concepts into real world solutions.

Our Cultural Values

We are a market driven organisation with a pioneering ethos. We want open up mobile development to everyone and always seek ways to make creating an app easier, quicker and more intuitive. The team at Cotham Technologies thrive on challenges and we set the bar high on who we employ. Our focus is on the needs of our customers and partners, and everything we do moves towards solving the problems our customers face day to day.

This is underpinned by our values:

  • We work with incredible people to build a positive and energetic team spirit
  • We deliver excellence in all that we do for our staff and our customers
  • We embrace technology, innovation, creativity and open mindedness
  • We create a fun environment and celebrate each other’s successes
  • We have respect for others and treat everyone fairly irrespective of background

The amount of mobile time that smartphone users are spending on mobile apps



6.4 billion people (80% of the world’s population) will be smartphone users by 2021


Patent-Filed Technology

FloFrame has created a new system for developing apps; allowing the user to create workflows linking several different inputs and actions, while avoiding the need to switch between different applications and different contexts. This results in significant improvements in efficiency and reliability during operation and allows specific workflows to be generated without the need for programming experience. At the heart of the technology is FloEngine, a rapid switching engine (the basis of the patent filing) which translates a solution definition into native mobile app features.

Apps are designed and assembled via the FloFrame no-code platform. This produces an overall solution definition which FloEngine then maps directly onto underlying native code blocks. Using FloFrame, apps with fully customisable UI, real time solution working and prototyping can be assembled and modified very rapidly with low technical expertise. FloEngine’s native translation allows the apps to leverage the breadth and depth of device features while working across platforms to give excellent performance.
