I would recommend Think Systems to any organization who needs to quickly get a handle on their projects and critical initiatives. We hired Think because we had to make some quick progress on the objectives in our newly independent and merged organization. Given the number of critical projects happening simultaneously, it made sense to bring them in to assess the situation, create a plan for execution, and identify and mitigate the risks involved.
John HortonPresident, CPower Corporation, Baltimore, Maryland
I would recommend Think highly for any project requiring a senior level project manager who is capable of working at a C-Level and also able to perform all of the blocking and tackling required to pull off highly complex projects with success. The fact that Think has been working with Vangent-HCM repeatedly over the years is a testament to their professionalism and ability to execute.

“Accelerated integration and your Rapid Control Process… For me, that was the secret sauce. Think came in and didn’t have a plan to take months coming up to speed. Added value day one.”
John CampFormer CTO of Bloomberg BNA, post merger integrations involving many strategic projects
Think is my go-to company when I need to build a team of business Intelligence specialists to support high-risk projects with high-impact deliverables and senior executive visibility. They provide the perfect combination of technical expertise, bare knuckled project management, and business analyst capability to get our very large, multi-year health care compliance and business Intelligence project off the ground and running solidly.

Think was a critical, invaluable asset to me at Vangent. I took over a project that was, in theory, 40% complete when the client wanted to revamp the requirements and almost start over, but without additional schedule or funding. Tony's insight and analysis helped us identify a significant portion of work accomplished that could be salvaged and modified to fit the new objectives. Tony will always be on my short list of "go to" people for tough projects.

I appreciated working with Think on developing our automated (OLAP) reporting solution. You and your team are so professional, so responsive, so attentive to detail…it really was a pleasure. I knew I could count on Think to deliver, and you didn’t let me down. Looking forward to working with you again soon.
Gretchen PorkertDirector, Product Development, OLAP Reporting Solution
Understanding that over 50% of all BI projects fail because of missed deadlines and vendor and resource issues, we reached out to Think Systems for an honest assessment of our project’s risks. Immediately, Think took ownership of the project as if we had hired a new COO just for this deliverable! What impressed me the most about this team was that they were more concerned about making the best decisions for our project rather than maximizing their own revenue.
