koolth is a smart web specialist company. We empower clients with next generation online tools and transform businesses by providing powerful online experiences and expert web solutions that includes custom web design and development, specialist web integrations, Artificial Intelligence (AI) and smart city solutions. We design and develop custom web solutions that help support underlying business processes and end users by integrating websites, web applications, business tools/practices and cutting edge technologies.

Passionate about what we do and with buckets of experience, we spend considerable time understanding our client needs. Building long-term relationships is important to us and we pour all our amazing knowledge and creative juices into providing our clients with the absolute best support, services, solutions, and consultancy. Our diverse, talented team use their experience in design, project management, software engineering, artificial intelligence, consulting and teaching to elevate businesses to the next level.

Along with building cool online solutions for clients, we design and develop software applications/tools for internal use and for the wider community, with a particular interest in employing artificial intelligence and big data techniques for smart city applications. We've developed custom software products for clients in industry (including retail, oil & gas, training providers/education, IT, business consultancy and wine industry) that are being used throughout Australia and across the globe. Other web studios/agencies have called on our expertise and experience for help and assistance with website design, website development, training and consultancy - letting us work behind the scenes to power their business.

We also love hosting events and running workshops, as well talking/presenting at events around the world about Artificial Intelligence, future jobs, and emerging technologies to industry, schools/education, community and government. Innovation is part of our culture and so we frequently challenge ourselves by taking part in competitions (GovHack (and we won!), D3, etc) and pitting ourselves against our peers. Immersing ourselves in ongoing education and training ensures we utilise the latest tools and techniques and are at forefront of emerging technology.

We're also the founders of Artificial Intelligence Lab (AiLab) that assists government, industry, academia and community with navigating and learning about AI through research, resources, policy development, education programs and events. We were proud to open registrations for AiLab at the Adelaide Open State Festival, where we partnered with Open State to present koolth's sold out event 'Future Jobs in a World of Artificial Intelligence'. AiLab and koolth's Open State event was also featured in The Advertiser with an interview with our Dr. John Flackett .

Giving back and supporting the community is really important to us and we take an active role in the innovation community by supporting hackathons and social good initiatives and also mentoring the teams and tech community. We've sponsored the fantastic global initiative Techfugees; a hackathon in Adelaide that brought together developers, designers, entrepreneurs and community to develop creative tech solutions that focused on improving the lives of refugee families in Australia. We were proud supporters of the Student Invention Summit organised by the Cognito Foundation, that brought together a range of speakers, including Nobel Peace Prize laureate, Professor Muhammad Yunus, to discuss social good and how business can make real social change via innovation. In 2018, we co-founded and launched the Adelaide Artificial Intelligence meetup sponsored by koolth's AiLab.

We strive for perfection and love working closely with our clients to achieve their web design and development dreams. Work with us and you will see the magic!
