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 information into powerful data assets." 

"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.

CapTech New Digital Strategy to Fortune 500 Utilities Company 

CapTech worked with Dominion Resources to provide a customer-centric, cohesive digital experience throughout the company. The strategy centered on the power of Dominion's already strong multi-billion dollar power and energy company brand, working with internal teams to adopt it culture-wide. 

Working with senior leadership to create a sense of urgency and a case for digital transformation, CapTech built a roadmap and framework for digital success. In a process that included stakeholder interviews, competitive benchmarking, customer research and brainstorming workshops, CapTech was able to help Dominion understand its audiences' expectations and define its ideal future state: a unified digital company that could look outward, improving its understanding of and ability to communicate with its stakeholders, while making them more aware of the brand.

CapTech's efforts resulted in: 

  • Greater customer experience mentality and culture at Dominion.

  • The framework for a unified digital operating model with the organization with stronger internal awareness of the importance of Omni-channel communication.

  • A framework for testing and measuring the success of digital initiatives.

  • The development of a more retail e-commerce approach to the utility's business.
