Empowering Gold Industry Growth

Project Overview

Since 2021, Forward Digital has been instrumental in modernising the software infrastructure for the World Gold Council, the esteemed authority driving market development for the gold industry.

The World Gold Council grappled with a disjointed and antiquated software architecture, resulting in internal and external web applications suffering from prolonged loading times and excessively large bundle sizes.

This situation hampered their operational efficiency, impairing both internal processes and external interactions.


Forward Digital delivered a meticulously designed, component-based solution, driven by a coherent design system that adheres to industry-leading standards.

This modernised approach streamlined the World Gold Council's software infrastructure, enhancing user experience and boosting overall operational efficiency.

Our Approach

Developer-First Approach

At the heart of our solution was our developer-first ethos. Our team of expert software developers, free from unnecessary bureaucracy and project management layers, dove into the project's intricacies. Their deep technical expertise was pivotal in rebuilding the World Gold Council's internal tools from the ground up, ensuring an efficient, modern system ready to meet future challenges.

Direct Communication and Agility

Throughout the project, we prioritised transparent processes and open channels of communication. Our agile approach facilitated swift iterations and allowed us to respond promptly to changing requirements. This approach not only ensured the project's success but also strengthened our partnership with the World Gold Council, fostering trust and collaboration.

Onshore Development and Quality Focus

By harnessing the capabilities of our onshore development team, we were able to deliver a high-quality, bespoke software solution. Our emphasis on quality over quantity meant no corner-cutting or compromise, leading to a robust, future-proof system that aligns perfectly with the World Gold Council's goals and operational needs.
