The Solstice Advantage
Founded in 2001, Solstice Mobile is a Chicago-based, mobile technology consulting firm focused on helping organizations embrace mobility in the context of their enterprise environments. We tackle enterprise mobility holistically: from sound strategy and enterprise architecture services, to intuitive app design, development and testing services. Solstice positions itself 12-18 months ahead of the enterprise mobile technology adoption curve; researching and testing new products and technologies through our mobile app development studio, Bottega Sol. In this quickly evolving market, this research allows Solstice to provide the knowledge and expertise to help organizations make the right decisions and build the best solutions.
Solstice’s main competitive advantage has always been its people. Solstice sponsors local MeetUps across different areas of technology, allowing us to find and recruit the most passionate technologists in the Chicagoland area. Our consultants then turn around and share their passion and knowledge through social media channels. Every senior consultant on staff has an active blog, providing the Chicagoland IT community with a steady stream of mobile education and knowledge.
Solstice also embraces better and faster ways of developing products through our Agile Scrum delivery process. We also teach our clients how to use the process as well.
Finally, Solstice has demonstrated its product development expertise by launching it's own product development studio, Bottega Sol (www.bottegasol.com). Bottega Sol is currently producing a series of Mobile as a Service (MaaS) products, allowing small and medium size business to leverage the mobile channel in the same capacity that larger enterprise can.
Our Growth and Industry Recognition
In the past 3 years, Solstice has achieved a 333% increase in revenue growth. Inc. Magazine recognized Solstice last year as being one of the 50 fastest growing companies in Chicago. As consumer and enterprise technologies continue to merge, Solstice's rapid growth is poised to continue through 2013 and beyond. Solstice was also recently recognized by Consulting Magazine as one of America's 7 Small Jewels, due to our emerging technology focus, innovative delivery approaches and industry-leading embracement of Mobile and Social Media.
Solstice's focus on enabling mobility in context of enterprise environments breeds a culture of 'disciplined' innovation. Solstice allows larger corporations to embrace the future, providing a competitive advantage through technology, without introducing risk in their existing environments.
Solstice acts as a pioneer and advocate for the Enterprise and the Chicagoland IT Community as a whole. Our culture of disciplined innovation, open knowledge sharing and "passionate craftsmanship" has created a reliable advisor and partner for both conservative and forward thinking companies as they embrace the technology platforms of the future.
