Supplier Feature: TechFides (Musa Asset Management)

How does the current “standard” IT consulting model make you feel?

Does it inspire confidence that a team of outsiders, many of whom have never worn anything besides a consulting hat, are going to walk into your enterprise and understand the sweat equity you and your team have invested to get to where you are?  Will they respect the culture you’ve carefully cultivated with your employees and customers?  Will they take the time to understand the nuances and details that make your enterprise unique?

Or does it feel like making a quick buck off of your company is their top priority?

TechFides (doing business under the Musa Asset Management umbrella) is an up and coming strategic and operations consulting outfit in the Dallas area, with a broad network and resource pool underpinned by a core team with nearly a century of global enterprise experience in companies like Honeywell and Schneider-Electric. Founded in early 2019, our company was established to fill the void created by disconnected, rank-and-file consultants lacking the flexibility and desire to step outside of standardized models to meet customer needs. TechFides is working to realign the consulting value proposition to the customer, where it belongs.

TechFides is looking for partners and subcontractors to help fill contract needs, and we’d love to be considered as a candidate to help your team.  Our mission is to provide high quality strategic and operational guidance in the form of cutting-edge infrastructure and IT knowledge and practices.

Your business is at a crossroads.  TechFides has the map.

School’s in Session for Sales Professionals: Learning the Language of Your Industry

To get ahead, sales professionals need to learn the language of the industry.
