Our consultancy Focus?
The United Kingdom has a large blue-chip service sector, big on having independent contractors implementing large data solutions in large enterprises. Markets change, but ostensibly this market still exists.
Info Rhino was set up to do not only contractor consultancy on BI, Data Transformation, Application Development to name but a few. A secondary huge focus has always been on own products and startup like platforms.
The company we see today has a range of products and services, but are still keen to deliver solutions to enterprise clients through contracting.
We could list multitudes of different frameworks and architectures, Domain specific software we have worked with over the years.
However, we focus on data-centric solutions mainly around;
- Dotnet core/C#/.Net Framework/Powershell
- SQL Server/SSIS/SSRS/Oracle/NoSQL
- Deployment Automation/release management/testing
- Website data platforms using ASP.net, chart.js, datatables, maps, ASP.Net Core, MVVM, Web API, Web Scraping
Whilst we just listed a host of technologies, we try not to talk about technology too much.
We would rather focus on using our products and services than pouring on about our technology.
Whilst other technologists want to know about this, clients either;
Care more about results.
Need a solution in a technology as that is where their expertise is.
Are precise on technology stack.
Do we want a business catalogue?
No. Spamming tens of thousands of random people is not our style. We do see the odds decidedly stacked against smaller businesses like ourselves, but seek to form partnerships with other providers to overcome these minor challenges.
Are we hiring?
The short answer is no. Instead, we look to collaborate with other developers, and businesses. We are very keen to find new partners who are either technical or can deliver clients to us. When we get projects, we work with independent known companies and freelancers to deliver client needs.
We really want to work with you - can we?
If you are a developer or a freelancer, this is how it can work
- You must have your own website - no matter what your expertise is
- Once we have met in-person/virtually, we will set up reciprocal links between sites or at the very least follow on a social media platform.
You may become a reseller for our platforms/products
- We may take our beta products to market on a shared initiative
- We also have a Github presence and are planning to expand
Do you need salespeople?
Short answer - yes, sales partners. We don't hire inhouse sales partners. We are neither interested in being sold packs of client introductions.
We have information on how we will work with sales partners. It details how we expect the relationship to work, the amount of commission.

Can you feature our products or services on Info Rhino's website?
Companies who share synergy with what we are doing, we would love to feature you on our website under a reciprocal arrangement.
Businesses not quite so tightly coupled to our own areas, we can consider advertising and affiliate linking.
Please let us know what you think?
Your beta software?
Why are you putting beta software online if you aren't offering it for sale?
We are very much intending to sell this software, but some is already incorporated into our other products. Other software we use in the back-end infrastructure to give you better solutions.
Can we invest in Info Rhino?
Feel free to drop us your ideas. Our preference is to keep info rhino separate from our other commercial ventures. Perhaps you may prefer to coauthor/co-own one of our beta products.
Can we invest in findigl?
Now that our data platform is looking strong, we are committed to pushing live data to a new version of our property platform findigl. The key win with findigl is much of the technology is developed making it ideal for investment. We have mapped out two main business verticals and are looking to;
- Get traction
- Get investment
- Separate findigl into a new legal entity
- Grow the business
Can we invest in Crypto Statto?
We are launching a cryptocurrency market metrics website. Many of the strategies we are familiar with trading assets including cryptocurrency. We have consulted for a trading exchange and many Investment Banks. This does not mean we are a regulated trading entity, but we are launching a powerful analytic solution mid-2022.
We are definitely keen to hear from investors who see the benefits of working with a commercial technology who have a major part of the development already completed.
We don't think your website design is as polished as other designers, how can we get the right look and feel?
We are not experts in design but we do have several designers we have worked with and can source designers where necessary. We are always open to suggestions and ideas so don't let our particular style put you off - nothing is insurmountable.

Do you develop websites in WordPress or php?
We don't work with WordPress or php BUT, there is now a wpdotnet platform. We have not explored this, but WordPress DotNet seems to be an exciting equivalent to the existing php infrastructure. If you are interested in php on .Net Core, we would love to help you.
Do you work with cloud technologies?

How scalable is Info Rhino?
We expect to be able to implement 10-12 Web Data platforms a year. We would be able to support clients and add enhancements.
We would not exceed more than 5 Website Starters a year.
On site consulting would may limit the upper ranges of service implementation, but we have a good network of partners.
Our other products we are hoping to push through more channels, and will evaluate this over time.
How does support work?
In project, we will work with clients by virtual meeting, calls, emails, on site where appropriate.
We provide email based support for products and services.
If you have specific needs, like first-line/second-line support, or using your own technical support, we can work with clients to find appropriate solutions.
We use Winhost, we have worked with them for many years. They are quick to respond and helpful. This is who we prefer to host our Website Starter and Web Data Platform on.
You may want hosting on Azure, Amazon Web Services, or Dedicated hosting. This may be slightly more costly but typically we funnel your queries to these hosts through us.
