Welcome to Synergetic Thinking.
Technology is just a tool, not a solution by itself. We believe in developing solutions backed by thorough business understanding, robust data and rigorous analytical thinking. The real magic in any solution lies in the synergy between Data, Analytics and Technology; we call this Synergetic Thinking.
Our business is built on the principles of balance and proportion, where the right combination of factors complement each other rather than compete. We call this balance the Perfect Ratio. At Customer Analytics, we seek to balance the technological component with the human side.
To this end, the ratio character “:” symbolizing proportionality has been introduced in the logo, not simply as an element of design, but to highlight the importance of balance within Customer Analytics. This thought is also characterized by our tagline Human Technology.
The theme of balance is carried through to our daily operations where traditional values and strong fundamentals are combined with newer processes and the nimble-footed agility of a startup. We believe this balance is especially crucial at a time when technology is evolving so quickly. And this has helped us sail through the inevitable highs and lows in the industry, and register a positive growth rate every year since our inception nearly two decades ago.

Areas of Operation
Mike co-founded his first company while working as Director of the Applied Population Laboratory at the University of Wisconsin-Madison over 20 years ago. That company, ThirdWave Research Group, eventually became what is now Customer Analytics. Today, after decades of practical experience solving business issues as a Trusted Third Party directly for the C-Suite, Mike’s focus has shifted to mentoring and guiding his 400+ friends and colleagues at Customer Analytics. Mike’s common sense and knowledge of statistical techniques, along with a pirate’s knowledge of obscure data sources, are treasures to be passed on to the next generation of data scientists and business leaders. Thankfully, Mike is uniquely able to find ways to pass along this knowledge, and takes pleasure in doing so.
