About

Based out of Eden Prairie, and Minneapolis, Minnesota, we specialize in: marketing, customer experience, retention, sales improvement, strategic planning, employee optimization, process improvement, public relations, data forecasting, search engine optimization (SEO), web development, and custom applications.

The best way to increase profit is to maximize efficiency. One Fortune 500 company was losing 54 million per year due to an overlooked process gap. Another process resulted in an increase in the average yearly revenue by 4.5 million.

Some of the biggest returns are from smaller businesses who see improvements in their bottom line.

Depending on the needs of the project we have consultants who come from different backgrounds to provide exceptional value and long-term returns.

Bao  is our newest photographer.  Having a driving passion to capture absolute spectacular photos wherever she goes. Many people might say “take a mental photo” just as her husband would say, but at times, that’s just not good enough! Memories captured, developed, and have a physical form, such as a photo that can endure for decades. People are able to store these photos away, then come back to remember all the good memories that they’ve once made.  It takes us all back to that one time, that one place, and get the ‘feels’ all over again. Photos tell a story and so should yours.
