focus areas

Focus on the user and all else will follow


Since the beginning, we’ve focused on providing the best user experience possible. Whether we’re designing a new content or a new tweak to the look of the homepage, we take great care to ensure that they will ultimately serve you, rather than our own internal goal or bottom line.  And when we provide these content, we believe they should help you become more efficient so well you don’t have to consider how they might have been designed.



Great isn't good enough


We see being great at something as a starting point, not an endpoint. We set ourselves goals we know we can’t reach yet, because we know that by stretching to meet them we can get further than we expected. Through innovation and iteration, we aim to take things that work well and improve upon them in unexpected ways. We are always looking for new places where we can make a difference. Ultimately, our constant dissatisfaction with the way things are becomes the driving force behind everything we do.



The need for information crosses all borders


Our company was founded in Virginia, USA, but our mission is to facilitate access to information for the entire world.  To that end, we have offices in two countries, maintain more than 12 Internet domains, and serve more than half of our results to people living outside the United States.  We have been able to greatly improve both the variety and quality of services we offer in even the most far–flung corners of the globe.



It's best to do one thing really, really well


We do content writing and presentations, in addition to facilitating job searches and education presentations for ISACA related certifications.  With one of the world’s largest research groups in the niche markets focused exclusively on solving these kind of unique problems, we know what we do well, and how we could do it better. Through continued iteration on difficult problems, we’ve been able to solve complex issues and provide continuous improvements to a service that already makes finding information a fast and seamless experience for millions of people. Our goal is to bring the power of excellence to previously explored and unexplored areas, and to help people access and use even more of the ever-expanding information in their lives.



Fast is better than slow


We know your time is valuable, so when you’re seeking an answer on the web you want it right away–and we aim to please. We may be the only people in the world who can say our goal is to have people search what they want and leave our website as quickly as possible.  We keep speed in mind to be fast enough for the modern web. And we continue to work on making it all go even faster.
