Services we offer

We are also available for traditional consulting engagements. We have deep expertise in the following areas:

Inventory Health Diagnostic

Have you ever wondered what your ideal inventory investment level is? We have decades of experience answering this question by modeling your inventory from the lowest level (sku) up. Projects are typically turned around within a week and can be done on site or remotely depending on your requirements and budget. This analysis will help you understand how much cash could be freed up from inventory by implementing better supply chain processes.

Inventory Optimization/Forecasting and Replenishment

In most companies inventory is the single largest capital investment. Properly managing this investment frees up cash and allows companies to take advantage of growth opportunities, from new products to new stores. We have decades of experience helping organizations of all sizes optimize their inventory investments to realize growth and improve service levels.

Data Engineering for Machine Learning

As the saying goes: “garbage in, garbage out”. We can help you make sure that the correct data is being fed to the most appropriate machine learning algorithm to deliver optimal results. More than 80% of the work that goes into any machine learning problem involves data preparation. This includes data cleansing and feature engineering. By ensuring your data is gathered and prepared correctly you help ensure the success of your machine learning investments.


We offer SQL development and query optimization services. We have particularly strong experience in Microsoft (MSSQL) and Postgres SQL. Our own tools are built on Postgres but many of your customers use Microsoft SQL servers.

Data Warehousing

Whether you have been accumulating data for decades or are just starting, we can help you design an optimal data warehouse. Most companies are in search of the holy grail of “a single version of the truth”. It all starts with a properly designed and implemented data warehouse.

Tableau Design and Develpment

We have more than a decade of experience visualizing data using Tableau. We have built Tableau visualizations on a variety of data sources from SQL views and tables to excel spreadsheets. We also have experience installing and deploying visualizations to web and mobile devices using Tableau Server. A small sampling of reports we have built using SQL and Tableau include:
