About Telstar Consulting

The consultants at Telstar Consulting Services have been helping clients solve problems, create order from chaos, and find balance since 1992.
 
We have deep roots in software and technology, including enterprise software development, website development, and social media.  And because technology requires people at the helm, we have equal expertise in process engineering, business analytics, finance, training, change management, communications, event management, and end-to-end marketing. 
 
We bring experience and insights with us, but we don't push ready-made templates or tools.  We listen, learn, and then design solutions that correctly scale to your requirements and budget, using assets you already have.  By starting with an understanding of your organization and challenges, Telstar creates sustainable solutions that address your needs long after our work with you is complete.
 
Our clients trust us.   We step into messy and delayed projects and we get things back on track.  We put tools and processes in place that integrate with your team and we communicate with you to make sure our collaboration goes smoothly.  Then we transfer knowledge and practices so that you can do it yourself the next time around.
 
Telstar serves a broad range of clients and is a woman-owned business. When not saving the day at work, our consultants use their skills and experience to volunteer in their communities.
