Info Rhino's CEO - Zak Willis
Info Rhino came about because it was a natural progression, to provide innovative solutions to clients, adding the capability of building my own products. Info Rhino remains relatively small, but through networking and associations, Info Rhino can draw upon the talents of partners to deliver largescale projects.
My background and experience
I studied at the University of Brighton, graduating in 1998 with a BSc Honours in Environmental Science. It was whilst working for an Environmental Testing laboratory, I really started getting into development, developing databases and spreadsheets with Visual Basic and Visual Basic for Applications - all fairly simple stuff looking back, but the thing that always appealed was doing stuff with data.
Since then, three public sector roles, a financial role at an Investment Bank, some management roles, before starting Info Rhino Limited in 2010.
I constantly use technology to help companies connect with their customers
One of the most important things in business is a fresh pair of eyes. So many times, a business thinks they are doing things well, but fail to see major shortcomings, maybe;
- Their website doesn't tell their customer the right story?
- They aren't compliant with data protection regulations?
- They have no system to manage their customer data, or at best a series of spreadsheets.
- They are using a gmail or hotmail email account for business correspondence?
- They have no social media presence.
- The company doesn't have any reporting and analytics?
Many companies are comfortable at the level they are at, but may not realise they are being held back by not connecting with their customers. Our expertise in data will help elevate your level to connect.
It has been quite a journey, learning different industries, adopting methodologies, learning new technologies, forgetting old technologies, but the goal to produce amazing technology continues.
2019 will be our busiest year with real focus and a number of parallel projects to complete, but don't let that stop you contacting me at zak willis at info rhino
