Meet Lon Orenstein, Founder and CEO:
A 35+ year experienced Microsoft consultant
who knows business
It's one thing to know the Microsoft software stack in the cloud and how to customize it for a client's needs. Where to click, how to integrate data from different systems, and how to create a report are all necessary skills that most of the consultants out there know how to do. Microsoft can teach them that and certify that they know how to do it.
What's missing for many of them is BUSINESS EXPERIENCE. Steve Jobs, founder of Apple Computer, said it best:
A lot of people in our industry haven't had very diverse experiences. So they don't have enough dots to connect, and they end up with very linear solutions without a broad perspective on the problem. The broader one's understanding of the human experience, the better design we will have.
Lon has been consulting on technology with all different kinds of businesses for decades — small businesses, Fortune 100 businesses, manufacturing businesses (and their rep firms), non-profit businesses, real estate and mortgage businesses, the list goes on and on. Being able to discover what makes YOUR business unique and how to improve YOUR operations is a skill based on EXPERIENCE. Lon is a master at cutting through to the core of how to improve your business's use of technology, especially using Microsoft's software.

When implementing a CRM, Sales, or Customer Service project, you don't know what you don't know. We do — we've done many of these! In the Implementation Coaching Session we'll listen to your needs and objectives to guide you to short, medium, and long-term completions.
"The project is like a hundred drunken clowns with bees in their underpants"
If this sounds like what your project has become, let's get it restarted. Maybe your consultants have changed, or your salespeople aren't cooperating and using what you implemented, or maybe your business has pivoted and you need new functionality. It's a common problem that we've solved for many clients and we can
