WHAT WE DO

We are an innovation consultancy focused on enabling organizations to design viable cross-functional solutions, create a competitive advantage, and provide the greatest value for our clients.

We are a collaborative group of strategists, designers, and technologists focused on helping our customers innovate for the future.

We partner with leading technology platforms including Salesforce.com, AWS, and Google Cloud. Our team has deep expertise in these areas, and we are here to help you navigate these platforms and implement solutions at scale.

We’re in business to develop relevant, dynamic strategies with clients that are engaged, synergetic, and ready to manage material change and growth.

We want you to be the disruptor, not the disrupted.

Emerging Technologies

Artificial intelligence, big data, the internet of things, analytics insights, blockchain, machine learning — Emerging technologies must be a core element of every company’s strategy.

At HIKE2, we help you evaluate the overall impact and commercial viability of the latest technological advances to your business model. Our dedicated teams help implement strategies to empower your organization be a leader in today’s competitive and fast-changing markets.

Design Thinking

Strategy, visual workshops, proofs of concept, product roadmaps — All good innovation solves real problems, just not in isolation.

HIKE2’s human-centered teams use cross-functional methodologies to help clients create better services and internal processes via design thinking. By pulling together resources from a team-focused point of view, our process allows you to consider how your business can connect or embed emerging technologies into established systems from the perspective of your users and customers.

Rapid Prototyping

Refine and iterate, prototype, review, deliver — It’s critical to move fast when building new products on your own or as a team.

Our rapid prototyping workflows enable companies to quickly and inexpensively develop rough go-to-market prototypes of new products and capabilities. By nurturing innovative designs and best-in-class platforms through multiple fast-paced iterations, companies bring not just final products to market faster, but the best products.

OUR SERVICES

Each client engagement brings together all parties to realize specialized methodologies that provide market leadership and competitive advantage.

Our services include:

Strategic Consulting

By keeping in front of emerging technology trends we leverage intimate customer insights to make informed creative and strategic decisions.

Design Thinking Models

The bedrock of our consultancy is a human-centered design process that utilizes collaborative principles and experimental techniques to create unrivaled connective customer experiences.

Rapid Prototyping

The fastest way to bring your design ideas to life.

Implementation Services

Expert assistance to develop implementation plans and to validate, migrate, and integrate new technologies in your business.

Our objective is to model and provide viable solutions, yet each proven framework tool is rarely a solution on their own. Each hands-on engagement looks very different to each client. HIKE2’s clients can expect services to run through the following engagement phases:

Targeting

Defining the problem, establishing business goals and objectives, and decide where we are going to focus

Ideation

Preliminary solutioning workshops to help refine personas, brainstorm potential solution sets, and generate hypotheses and key attributes.

Actualization

Brainstorm proof of concepts, and use iterative improvement cycles and user feedback to create rapid, go-to-market prototypes.

Adoption

Produce detailed designs to build, test, and integrate across businesses

OUR CULTURE

HIKE2’s collaborative, diverse, and action-oriented group of consultants work through iterative engagements to capture client mindsets and solve the most complex business problems.

To remain competitive and continually differentiate through technological innovation, evolving business models, and the explosive growth of data, companies must develop and adopt new strategies, organizational capabilities, and client engagement models.

For our teams, there’s no such thing as “cookie-cutter” advice or solutions. To go from blank slate to truly innovative ideas, creative breakthroughs develop from our deep, cross-discipline functionality shaped by senior advisors with practical experience.

Core Tenents

With an emphasis on insights, ideation, and experimentation, our core tenets are:

+ We work in teams

+ We are committed to our customer success and each other’s success

+ We set the bar high and challenge one another

+ We are passionate about emerging technologies and love the thrill of venturing to the edge of technology

+ We get out from behind our desks and go to the drawing board

+ We gather information and get to know our clients face to face

Our passion and the hands-on approach that drives our team will lead and enable clients to challenge business assumptions, redefine goals, overcome obstacles, and achieve new heights.
