Welcome to Muse Technical.  We are a technical consulting firm that has successfully been in business for many years.  Our experience and project work has served several different business sectors such as manufacturing, hi-tech, aerospace, retail, entertainment, non-profit and others.

Our expertise is helping customers with their data and systems.  Many times we come up with solutions that either did not exist before, or improving upon existing systems or implementations that are inadequate or in need of augmentation or improvements.

If you are curious about some of what we have done, we’ve put up a sampling of some of our projects and experience on our Projects page.  If you have any questions or want to contact us, please see the details on our Contact page.

About

Muse Technical is a technical consulting firm with years of experience across a vast array of projects and clients.  We are also part of a consortium of consultants who work together to collectively leverage our shared knowledge, skills and expertise.

To boil it down to the essence of who we are and what we do, what we have found is it all comes to a common denominator for every client and project:  Data.  Every project we’ve worked on has had some business or technical case to take data and do something with it.  Working with data and the systems that work with that data is the foundation and core of our business.
