3-step process

Our goal is to make streamlining your business as simple as possible. We work with you to come up with solutions that best fit your company and team. We present things clearly, focus on solutions, and above all: we are human.

1. Assess

We take a look at how things are done in your business, we talk to the fine folks who work with you, and we build a picture of how your business operates and how information flows.

2. Solve

We think hard about things. Using our expert knowledge of cutting-edge technologies and our assessment of your business, we come up with an action plan to make things easier for you and your team.

3. Test

Sometimes solutions can reveal even more opportunities. This process is a loop – we assess results, and strive for continuous improvement. There's always something that can be done better.

About us

Shand & Co. was born out of a frustration with organisations that weren't leveraging technology to do work for them. This evolved into a goal to support entrepreneurs and small teams who are experts in what they do – we provide the guidance and support to spend less time worrying about the business side of things, and more time doing what they're good at. Leveraging experience with startups, Shand & Co. is on a mission to help small, underdog companies duke it out with big ones by allowing them to be more flexible and efficient with technology and automation, while helping to position small companies using creative marketing and branding.

We're based in Sudbury, Ontario with advisors located across Canada and Australia.
