Medical Assurance Society (MAS) is a finance company with Members all over New Zealand. MAS Advisers around the country regularly meet with their Members to discuss how MAS can help them plan for their successful financial future.
To help engage with their Members, MAS wanted a suite of professional, online calculators that their Advisers could use remotely – wherever their Members are. Siso was challenged with converting existing Excel workbooks into a more interactive and graphic product.
The main advantage of moving the calculators online was being able to add new graphic representations and summary tables to help Members understand what their various retirement scenarios might look like. Advisers would also be able to download the results as a pdf so that they can be easily emailed to Members following the discussion.
“The retirement calculators developed by Siso are excellent tools to help our Advisers meet our Member’s financial needs. Siso was an excellent partner to work with, responsive to our requirements and provided good suggestions to deliver a quality end product”

Shh Baby Shh was created by our designer to help his new born baby fall asleep, when he couldn’t find an app that suited his needs. The thing that was missing from all the white noise apps was the ability to auto-decrease the volume over time. If you’ve ever tried to sneak unnoticed into a baby’s room, then you know that it isn’t ideal just to decrease the volume.
Many of the calming/white noise apps are designed to be played constantly throughout the night to change the sound of the baby’s sleeping environment. But eventually you’ll have to wean them off the background noise. Shh Baby Shh was designed to be simple and effective; it both targets the initial calming phase by enabling the parent to start the app at a higher volume and then automatically decreases the volume over time.
Automatically decreasing the volume means that you can start the app playing and then have both hands free to do other calming techniques like patting or rubbing your baby’s back, or gently rocking them back and forth.
But don’t take our word for it, here are some of the excellent reviews we have received:
Best money I’ve spent on my newborn son
“Took quite a few newborn care classes and each mentioned using white noise to soothe your baby. This app works miracles in my house. It instantly calms my newborn son when he is fussy, gassy, tired, etc. He doesn’t like to be burped after a feeding but this app calms him so that he doesn’t fight me when burping him which then prevents the gassiness. This then makes it easier to put him down to sleep which means mom & dad sleep. Thank you!”

This app saved my sanity!!!
“I put it on after every night feed and even if he’s not ready to sleep, my little boy lies calmly till he drifts off. He was screaming during the day and this had him snoozing in less than a minute!
Iv told everyone I know with a baby!
If u are desperate enough u r searching for apps that might help at 3am in tears (like I was), try it, you’ve nothing to lose (bar £0.69). It’s changed my life the last few days and broken the crappy sleeping cycle we were in.
Whoever designed this THANK YOU! I owe u more than 5 stars!”

We understand how powerful information is, but we also know it can be tricky to display that information in an eye-catching and understandable way. When it comes to data it’s true that “a picture is worth a thousands words” so on thinkdata.info we use infographics to help explain what’s going on.
To make the infographics and data visualisations stand out, we didn’t want the design of the website to be too cluttered or busy, so we went with a minimalist look. Sometimes a little can go a long way, don’t you think?
Some of the key things we wanted from the website were:
- Easy to update
- Ability for website viewers to share and like posts
- Ability for website viewers to see what the most popular posts are
And these was all possible using WordPress.We used a standard template for the site and then added custom plugins to allow us to make it come to life. The following category features were added with minimal cost/time.
- Ability to see all posts from one category
- Ability to see which categories a post belongs to
