Rarely is technology to blame when organizations and companies fail to connect with their clients or constituents. That is why at Altamente we hold fast to three principles that have guided us and our clients.
- If you want to get it right you have to understand your audience, whether it is an in-house technology project, media campaign, or engagement strategy. Success begins with understanding and quantifying human dynamics.
- It is not the nature of the tool you use, but the will of the agents involved that guarantees your success. Pick your people well and you will increase your chances of a positive outcome.
- Technical competence should be a given. You do not want a company that is stretching itself to achieve your goals. You want a team with the experience and technical expertise to realize your vision.
Thankfully at Altamente we have you covered in these three areas. As an expert in cultural anthropology, Laura Gorbea, PhD, has a deep understanding of the human/machine relationship and over the years has developed a rich set of tools for providing a clear ethnographic view of your audience.
Whatever the problem, Altamente can discover an elegant and future-proof solution complete with transparency going forward. James O'Malley has spent the past 15 years working with people to create networks, configure hardware, and program Open Source web technology. He has demonstrated a consistent track record of understanding disparate agents whether technology or human and getting them to talk to each other. Understanding potential pitfalls has allowed Altamente to bring its projects in under budget and on-time, whether they be web sites, policy studies, ethnographic research, media campaigns, social media integration, mobile app development, and device responsive design.
We have years of experience working in the business and non-profit world. We are attuned to the unique necessities of a diverse set of companies, from wholesale, distribution, foundations, non-profit, construction, and startups. Rather than sell you a box of hammers for your particular problem, we will find out what you really need and work with you to achieve the best possible outcome.
