We're good people. To some, that doesn't matter much, but to us it's what matters most. It's the source of our growth— good people like to work with good people. We take our jobs, but not ourselves, seriously. We like to have fun, and we love helping other people solve their problems. Though we have high expectations and hire only great people, we're also fair, open, and honest.
While leveraging data for valuable insights is a shiny new toy for many consultancies, we have over a decade of experience helping our clients better utilize their data for critical business decisions. Our applications aren't vaporware on some Powerpoint slide; we work with some of the most prominent brands to help manage over $1B/yr in assets.
Based in the San Francisco Bay Area, eAlchemy is a small business intelligence and analytics consultancy founded by Chris Farkas in 2006. Our past has focused on custom solutions, but we're expanding into technologies like Qlick and Tableau.
And, we're pioneering the use of AI and Machine Learning to surface valuable insights in the inventory/asset management space. Thanks in large part to the truly collaborative relationships we forge with our customers, we've experienced significant growth and see more on the horizon.
The eAlchemy team boasts a diverse set of skills, both in-house and via an established stable of select contractors from which we complement our service offerings.
