About CapTech

Richmond, VA-based CapTech was founded in 1997 by two colleagues at Accenture-Sandy Williamson and Slaughter Fitz-Hugh-with a focus building corporate internet applications and data warehouse solutions. Today, the firm is an award-winning national IT management consulting firm bridging the gap between business and technology. CapTech offers Transformation, Customer Engagement, Data & Analytics and Application Development solutions for America's leading Fortune 500 companies and government agencies. According to the firm, its "collaborative approach helps organizations grow their business, engage with customers and turn data into powerful insights."

"Others talk, we listen."

The firm's tagline is "Others Talk, We Listen"-although the firm maintains that the ethos goes far beyond a tagline, and serves as the foundation for all client engagement. At the start of every project, CapTech aims to develop a deep understanding of the goals and assets unique to the client. According to the firm, this leads to teams intrinsically blending with client organizations to build success together. The approach is built on collaborative partnerships in order to help clients succeed on their terms.

Formal methodologies have changed since the firm's beginning, but its founders always believed that the best business systems are built when business and technology experts collaborate in agile teams. According to the firm, its nimble culture is key in making projects successful.

CapTech also has a formalized commitment to its employees around work-life balance. The firm operates a "work where you live" policy, which aims to reduce travel for employees to client sites, and it also sets billable hours targets at 40 hours per week for consultants-considerably fewer than at many other comparable firms in the industry.

America Does Digital Better According to New CapTech Study

Businesses that want to win, serve, and retain customers on digital platforms are increasingly turning to American IT firms who can get them to market faster with more effective customer engagement solutions than offshore providers, according to a new study released today. 

New numbers reveal that 63% of IT sourcing decision makers will hire more onshore third-party service providers for digital transformation projects in the coming year. Late projects, poor communication, poor quality, and escalating total costs were cited as the main reasons for bringing offshore work back onshore. The survey found that U.S. service providers deliver more value and consistently better results for meeting the demands of today's digitally empowered customers. A key driver behind this outcome is that onshore services are more grounded in agile development. Using the agile approach provides U.S. firms with a distinct advantage in being able to quickly deliver complex and innovative applications that are functional, scalable, maintainable, and secure, the study found. 

The study, "Onshore/Nearshore Services Thrive in the Age of the Customer," a commissioned study conducted by Forrester Consulting, a global research and advisory firm, on behalf of CapTech, was released in May 2016. CapTech is a national IT consulting firm that that bridges business needs and technology. CapTech serves as a trusted adviser to some of the largest companies in the United States in the retail, banking, utilities, hotel and entertainment industries, including a number of clients ranked in the Fortune 50, as well as some of the largest state governments in the country.

Local Consultants Provide IT Support to Northern Virginia Family Service

Northern Virginia Family Service (NVFS), a non-profit that takes a holistic approach to helping individuals in need across Northern Virginia, recently received some desired pro bono information technology support from CapTech Ventures. With more than 400 employees and an IT department of three, NVFS sought assistance in technical analysis to improve the configuration of its SharePoint intranet site. In a 21-week engagement, a group of dedicated CapTech consultants donated their time to provide recommendations around refining site efficiencies, enhancing search features, managing outdated content, improving workflows and transitioning to an upgraded system. These improvements will translate into advances around usability, collaboration, internal communication and processes, which, in turn, will benefit the more than 34,000 people who receive NVFS services every year. 

NVFS works to improve the lives of those in need through a myriad of programs, including housing and shelter; anti-hunger; health and mental health services; early childhood services; legal services; workforce development services; and intervention and prevention services.

"CapTech's assistance on our intranet system will increase efficiency for staff, which will allow for greater time management, information distribution and streamlined daily activities," notes Tonya Bailey, director of research, evaluation and quality assurance. "It will also promote stronger internal communication that will translate into better client service delivery, with staff being able to devote more time to clients thanks to these upgrades."

CapTech makes new website possible for The Doorways

In August, The Doorways, formally Hospital Hospitality House, launched their new website with the help of some friends at CapTech Consulting. The site,, is supporting the new brand of The Doorways, which was designed to modernize the facility, better support volunteer and donor engagement and most importantly, improve the experience for guests that are away from home due to illness, or that of a loved one. 

The Doorways provides affordable accommodations for people who live outside of Richmond and need to be near Richmond area hospitals. One of CapTech Consulting's employees, and a former Doorways guest, Brendon Cornwell and his wife, were looking for a way to give back to The Doorways after a three-month stay when their infant was critically ill. In hopes of making a significant positive impact, he partnered with CapTech to provide pro bono digital services to the non-profit. "The Doorways became one constant in the day-to-day challenges our son faced," said Brendon. "It really eased the burden of having to leave our son at night - knowing we were just a few minutes away."

The non-profit depends on 800-1000 volunteers every year, and "the new website plays a critical role in the rebranding and modernization of how we help our guests and engage our community," says J.C. Poma, Community Outreach Manager of The Doorways. "Now we can better tell our story on a local level and build brand recognition among potential volunteers and donors."
