Our Mission is Simple

To provide best in class technology and counsel to our clients.

We are all experiencing it.  Our clients, employees, constituents, and partners have evolving expectations on how they expect to interact with us.  There are challenges that seem too big to tackle or too ambiguous as to where to start. It’s in this area where business intersects with technology that Sockeye thrives.  Our clients look to us to provide guidance in recommending technology that is filtered through the lens of their business objectives.

Here at Sockeye we’re about delivering expert knowledge in business intelligence, software integration, software implementation, data migration, application modernization, project management, and business analysis. We are a Microsoft Gold Certified Partner specializing in design, development, deployment, and support of Dynamics ERP, CRM, and SharePoint platforms. Sockeye delivers software solutions that address a wide variety of business process challenges, by providing business solutions focused on streamlining the organizational processes, enhancing quality of service, meeting regulatory requirements, and improving profits.
