We believe in the power of technology to simplify and enrich our professional and personal lives. AI is rapidly emerging as another type of software that is integrated into business and consumer solutions. It is becoming better understood and more broadly available, but it is not always the best fit for every client or project. We believe that our clients need to know when AI makes sense for their context, and to get recommendations from us on alternative or phased approaches where AI is not the best fit. 

Our Vision

Our team is united by a passion for solving complex business problems by applying advanced data analytic technologies. We believe that listening to our clients and getting to know their businesses in depth is critical.

  • Focusing on each client’s business model, technical capacity and specific business goals guides our recommendation in what approach best addresses their business problem. Sometimes an advanced AI solution is needed; sometimes an alternate or phased approach is a better fit.
  • Rapid prototyping and iterative development methodologies ensure that, whatever the agreed-upon approach, we deliver a solution that is practical and scalable.

Our History

We were conceived in 2019 as a virtual, global organization. The changing work practices forced by the Covid pandemic cemented our distributed, on demand, virtual organization, our company culture and the way we work. We harness collaborative platforms to form high-performance project teams with the best decision science, software development and business talent available – wherever they are located.

Our on-demand model helps us provide highly skilled development teams at a fraction of the cost and time required with traditional methods
