Since 1996, ProGrid and its network of consultants and partner organizations have helped a wide variety of clients including corporations, government agencies, universities, hospitals, and non-profit foundations. These clients must make complex decisions based on expert knowledge, working within limited time frames and budgets, and guided by organizational goals and values. They must make difficult choices, such as which technologies and products to invest in, which proposals to fund, and how to make sound evaluations based on intangible factors. The ProGrid companies have developed proprietary methodologies and embedded these in tool sets and software platforms which are unique and are licensed for use only to a small set of highly trained consultants and select organizations.
