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 a national IT management consulting firm that bridges the gap between business and technology. CapTech is partnering with some of the world's most successful companies to design, develop, and manage technical and digital solutions that delight customers, drive insights, and meet strategic objectives.. 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. In 2017, CapTech shifted to a culture of coaching, providing clarity around career paths and goal alignment to the company strategy.
