Why Choose Us
Content, Process, and People
We know how people, content and processes must interact for any organization to be efficient and effective. You cannot change one without affecting the other two.
Content – whether digital or hardcopy information – is integrated into one or more work processes.
Often, not all of the people using the content or the processes that depend on the content are fully known or understood.
One of the keys to our approach is the ability to focus on the business needs of organizations instead of the “products that we could sell you” approach taken by others.
We do not sell a particular manufacturer’s product. We are an independent supplier of knowledge – not products.
We have always focused on practical, insightful methods to reach the desired results. Often, the easy answer consultants will offer is to tell client to ‘just spend more money’ for a new application or product – but this may not be the right solution.
Designing the most practical integration of technology, people and processesto facilitateaccess and sharingof information in new and innovative ways is what we do.
Founded in 1989, we are a nationally recognized, independent consulting firm focused on increasing the productivity of knowledge workers by showing organizations how to identify, organize, share and act on their knowledge and content assets.
We offer a well-rounded team – providing the right mix of complimentary services to address your needs.
