Meet the Host

I’m Frank Jacquette, and I started my software consulting company based on a simple premise: technology exists to make your life better. It seems like most technology companies plunge on to building the Next Cool Thing without remembering that the human being is the most important part of the system.

 

That premise has carried us far: we’ve been recognized three times in the Inc. 5000, six times in the Philadelphia 100, and written up as a great place to work.

 

We’ve successfully brought our approach to some of the largest companies in the world (and helped some smaller companies get much, much larger).
