Delve Expands Services with Digital Innovation and Design Firm Acquisition

Delve continues to grow into the world’s leading innovation consultancy with its acquisition of altr, a digital innovation and design company.

The acquisition strengthens Delve’s ability to deliver products, services, and experiences to clients that seamlessly combine physical and digital features.

“The future is about delivering a unified product experience – digital, physical, and service,” said Delve President Andrew Weiman. “Our clients will now be able to achieve that future with a single innovation partner, Delve.”

altr, based in Boston, are experts in digital strategy and design for consumer apps, enterprise software, and brand experiences with deep expertise in serving healthcare and medtech clients.

They are in the top 1% of firms globally for product design and development. Their ranking is a direct result of the impact they create for clients:

Jitterbit: A complete redesign of the platform lead to them being recognized as Best in Usability by G2 and a Gartner Magic Quadrant Leader.

Erewhon: Experience strategy and design for their native app for members and shopping, ranked 4.2 stars in the Apple App Store.

And a breadth of proven results for healthcare leaders including BD, Breas, athenahealth, Iora Primary Care, Homethrive, and more.

“We chose Delve because we share a vision for how to better serve people and build a more meaningful and effective future through design,” said altr Founder and Chief of Design Christine Pillsbury. “We’re excited to empower clients new and old with our collective ability to deliver in digital and physical environments.”

This is Delve’s first acquisition since it was purchased by Trinity Hunt Partners and merged with design and development firm Bresslergroup in May 2021.

Delve has expanded its staff of strategists, designers, and engineers; completed hundreds of impactful projects; and celebrated alongside clients as they released innovative new products in the medical device, commercial, and consumer industries.

“Almost two years ago to the day, we announced our intention to build a company that could be considered the world’s best end-to-end product innovation firm,” Weiman said. “With altr, we take another giant step forward. Much more to come.”
