Our Approach

Objective Analytical Process

Our business case development, RFP creation and vendor evaluation processes give our clients an objective, vendor-neutral analysis designed to provide an optimal solution for each project. To this end, we neither enter into exclusive distribution relationships with software firms nor do we directly offer software that might influence our technology evaluation services.

Fixed Price Deliverables

All of our professional services are offered at fixed price, with Dakota taking responsibility for providing the necessary resources to deliver agreed upon components. Any resources required by Dakota (sample documents, system access, technical personnel, etc.) are determined before projects begin.

User-centric Design

At Dakota, we believe that both product success and customer loyalty are the result of the quality of the user experience. If you make users central to your designs, in return they will not only improve your product, but also offer their allegiance. Build it for them, and they will use it. Usability attracts loyalty.

Customer Collaboration

Dakota uses a collaborative method that minimizes costs while leveraging both Dakota’s and our clients collective expertise. To accomplish this goal, Dakota works jointly with appointed client subject matter experts from various business groups (marketing, editorial, IT, etc.) to ensure that adequate knowledge transfer takes place.
