What is new at ignite? A look inside our Recent Projects

As consultants, we here at Ignite often get asked by people we meet: "what exactly do you do?" We typically respond by explaining the broad scope of services our company provides, such as Change Management, System Integration, and Business Transformation.

Unusual Assignments: Ignite goes Hollywood to deliver business solution
