Most professional programmers are not well prepared to tackle tough algorithm design problems. Algorist Technologies is a consulting firm that provides its clients with short-term, expert help in algorithm design and implementation. Typically, an Algorist consultant is called in for one to three days worth of intensive, on-site discussion and analysis with the client's own development staff. Algorist has built an impressive record of performance improvements with several companies and applications. We provide longer-term consulting and contracting services as well.
