We believe that the most important
part of technology is the human part. Technology
is not an end in itself -- making the technology
work effectively for your employees and with your
business processes is our primary goal.
Our consultants bring 20+ years
of real-world experience in a broad range of businesses
and technologies. We're down and dirty in the
trenches problem solvers -- not theoretical fresh-out-of-college
theorizers. We love to see technology make people's
work easier, faster and more productive. And we
like to see people happy, too.
