About Northwood Advisors

It's not technology for technology's sake, but technology for business sake

Three Key Questions. One Proven Solution - Northwood Advisors

Companies typically call us for a few reasons...

...First is they are new to BI and want a sustainable system for acquiring data. Second is they have established Business Intelligence, but it’s working below expectations, lacks scalability, or remains unadopted. Third is there’s an over focus on technology vs. a holistic view of the way the company works, day-to-day. Regardless of circumstance, technology platform or where you're at in the process, we maintain experience that can create ROI in every aspect of BI.

Purely advisory. Technology agnostic. No hidden agenda. No bundled approach

Although our knowledge base covers all technology platforms, and we have hands-on experience architecting, coding, and designing enterprise-wide systems, we have chosen to focus purely on advisory. We also opted to develop acumen in Human and Cultural Psychology, an often overlooked, but necessary ingredient to understanding how projects move from theory, to application, through the culture to measurement and success. This helps to bridge between business and IT, fully understands all worlds, and unifying the various departments.

Big firm experience. Small firm feel and attentiveness

No matter what size company, it doesn't take a village or a busload of consultants to achieve success. So rather than hire a big firm where key players come for the pitch, only to risk your work or account being turned over to who knows what, our advisors are C-level, stay in the game thought-leaders that are renowned for their expertise, respected for their integrity and committed to stay along-side as true business partners throughout the relationship. It’s like having high-level BI Solution Center in-house; there when you need it, but without the burdened cost.

We start by listening. We continue listening

At Northwood, we never underestimate the value of great questions. Through detailed discovery processes we are able to determine the best course of action while considering all aspects of your company and its realities. In some cases we recommend advisory services, other times an internal 2-day training to start the BI process. Either way, your interests remain primary. We look forward to serving you.
