Founded in 2003 in Denver, Colorado, we have worked with organizations from small non-profits to Fortune 50 organizations across many industries. We have experience in various business domains, technology projects and business process improvement solutions. We help customers with coaching, training and consulting needs.
Our background is in software development and process improvement. These practices go hand-in-hand because great software demands solid business processes and rules. Business systems involve automated and manual processes; we find that often the problems are not with the automation, but with the manual steps in a process. So, stating the obvious, we continue to find situations where the solution is NOT software, but fixing a manual business process.
