What Happens When You Ask, “Why Not?”
Argent Associates has been researching and developing tools internally for more than 20 years to help automate processes and reduce costs. In our continually quest to answer the question “Why Not?” we have discovered tools, processes and products that not only make a difference within our company but provide competitive solutions for our clients.
Our Innovation Center has three distinct goals:
- To empower our technology-driven employees to research and develop alternative solutions to today’s challenging issues
- To collaborate with our partners and customers to bring better tools and products to the marketplace to meet today’s and tomorrow’s business goals
- To create a diverse technology-driven ecosystem that can level the playing field for underserved and underrepresented communities
Our diverse engineering and technology team bring strong experience, design thinking, customer/consumer insights, innovation and trends analysis together to examine potential solutions to the question “Why Not?”
Here are a few of the outcomes of this brain trust now in the marketplace:
