About us

effbis understands the power of Web site, Intranet or B2E portals — the ability to make new connections between people, processes, and knowledge. However, portal implementations require the challenging task of gaining consensus where none previously existed — stakeholders must agree on portal objectives, supporting processes, guidelines, and technology.

effbis focuses on creating consensus through breaking large issues into manageable (and less threatening) pieces, using rigorous communication between effbis and our clients, and delivering concrete tools for objective decision-making. 

Positioning

effbis believes that: Developing a Web site, Intranet or B2E portal is a management opportunity to engage advocates and critics, and to take a leadership position beyond the expected Knowledge of best practices is not enough — we focus on enabling our clients to adopt best practices All of our associates are former Giga Information Group and Forrester consultants who came together to create effbis — a flexible company driven by client needs — where the work we engage in is our passion. 

Differentiators

Unlike the competition, our advice is:

  • Pragmatic and actionable: Best practices reflect a perfect world. In daily business operations, best practices are difficult to apply. We take your unique culture, technical reality, and organizational constraints into account to find the best solution.
  • Scenario-based: Each business challenge has more than one solution. We collaborate with our clients, outlining the advantages and disadvantages of multiple scenarios to arrive at the best solution. 

How we work:

  • The client comes first. We work with a limited number of clients, to make sure we are always available and focused.
  • We offer an experienced team, with individuals who have worked together for at least seven years.
  • We do not employ junior-level associates.
  • We offer delivery capacity in English, French and German.
  • We know what we don’t know: We encourage clients to bring in additional external consultants as needed.
  • Our initial engagements are project-based, but many of our clients continue to collaborate with us on an as-needed basis, daily or on retainer.
