About CapTech

THE SCOOP 

A local firm making good

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. In less than 20 years, the pair have grown the firm into a full-service IT consultancy which specializes in IT Management Consulting, Systems Integration, and Data Management. Today, the firm still serves its first large clients in financial services and health care, and has expanded into state and federal government, retail, consumer products, and hospitality.

 

The CapTech Way 

Underpinning the firm's success and growth in recent years is a formalized project methodology, known as the CapTech Way. Presented in the form of a wheel, the methodology divides projects into four major segments, from initiation to release: Analyze the problem, Model a solution; Realize the solution; and Verify and Validate prior to release. Each stage also has a review and acceptance stage built in at the end of each segment. 

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. The CapTech Way has evolved to take advantage of the now trendy agile development approaches. According to the firm, its nimble culture is a plus in making projects successful. 

That iterative, detail-oriented approach isn't reserved simply for project work, however: 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
