Our team has built and implemented back-office, fulfillment, analytics and optimization solutions
across a number of different industries. We'll work with you and your consulting partners to understand
the key elements of your strategy and map that into a thorough review of your current landscape.
We'll review technology, time and talent to assess not only what you can do with your current environment, but also how other priorities and projects may impact a new initiative. Working with your team, we can then propose several options for improvements, extensions and replacements that align with your goals and priorities. If you decide to take action, we can help you with program management and delivery too!

We have deep expertise in
For your project, we can develop detailed specifications and test plans, act as an advisor to your project team,
or deliver running interfaces to you in a bespoke fashion.
If you need APIs or middleware to enable business partners or to bridge a gap on a legacy system, we can get your interface built in a reliable manner. Depending on the needs and landscape, we can leverage industry tools and middleware solutions, or we can build the interface directly in code. This kind of work can usually proceed without blocking other project activities.
We can apply this expertise in business process automation work as well. In many cases, one can speed or simplify day-to-day use of complex back-office and optimization systems through process automation. We discuss this in more detail in the Business Process Automation topic.
We can help identify improvements at different levels of scale and complexity, ranging from simple workflow automation
to system re-architecture. Most enterprise back-office, analytics and optimization tools have APIs or machine interfaces to facilitate tighter integration.
These interfaces are often overlooked or de-scoped in implementation projects as teams deal with other problems.
We can help with what we call decision scaling, leveraging automation, interfaces and the capabilities of your existing systems. We will work with your solution vendors and consulting partners to ensure the highest value areas are addressed.
