We Take a Different Path

Why Work With Big Compass

When you partner with Big Compass, you’ll experience a combination of expertise, professionalism, collaboration and personal attention you won’t find anywhere else. Sure, we’re die-hard techies who live and breathe application development and integration, yet we’re big on personal interaction, too – within our team and with the businesses we partner with. We’re heavy hitters – yet remain lighthearted. We’re hard workers – with a broad set of soft skills rarely found in our industry. It’s what sets us apart from others, and in the end, you from your competition.

  • We're accessible. Unlike the behemoths, you’ll have regular briefings with our executive team and direct phone call access any time of the day.
  • We're accountable. We believe so strongly in delivering on our promises that we extend satisfaction guarantees on our engagements and staffing.
  • We're proven. When it comes to integrations, we’ve done it all. And if it’s new, we’re probably testing it out. You get the benefit of our rich experience and enthusiastic curiosity.

“These guys know their stuff. It’s their work ethic, intelligence and personal brand that sells them.”
