Our World

Over the past year, my colleagues and I have conducted multiple projects including back office technology implementations (Microsoft, NetSuite), due diligence support and a content development strategy. In addition, we conducted more than 25 interviews of publishing software companies to complete research for our annual Publishing Technology research report. You can read how these technologists see the impact of COVID via the link below. If your company is considering a business strategy or technology project, we want to help and are always happy to take a call (908 938 4889) or email to discuss your particular challenge.
