Our typical implementations cost a fraction of a comparable licensed software platform or a in house development team.


Question: How is a solution-based approach different from a product approach that other companies offer?

Answer:  Our software solutions  are implemented by an experienced team of professionals that understand the problem space and have complete mastery in adapting the software to solve a business problem.  A number of leading analyst surveys have indicated that the major reason for software project failure are the people implementing and managing the project and not the software. Data quality problems require a consultative approach and a high level of subject matter expertise since a number of business processes are impacted by the problem space. 


How does it affect the success of my project?

Answer:  We bring in the expertise and the knowledge leadership as a part of the implementation, we identify issues and derive strategies to handle them ahead of the actual project implementation. Since we are the company that has developed the software and the technology , we do not have a learning curve in building the appropriate processes during the project implementation phase. This powerful approach of providing the technology, thought leadership and implementation in the project from the inception to the final project completion phase leads to a project that will meet its goals on time and within budget.
