Define Your Goals

If you have ideas that are being met with blank stares you’re not talking to the right people. We can help you articulate your vision, determine what the best tool for the job is, and break it into achievable options. We are trained to help you identify solutions to your problems.

Take Action

We will work with you to architect technical solutions to your problem. We design the scope, interface, develop and deploy your solutions.


The most successful technical solutions include making sure that the users are able to effectively use and support the system. We work hard to train your general users and administrative users to support the solutions we build for you.

On-Going Support

When building a custom solution, its hard, if not impossible to articulate all your needs before you know what is possible. We partner with our customers so as new ideas arise or processes change, we are there to offer on-going support and new development.

“Thorsen is always focused on providing options that allow us to decide the best use of our time and budget. They are very responsive and have provided and continue to provide excellent customer service – we really could not ask for a better partner.”

Michelle Holbrook

Director, External Affairs Electric Cities of Georgia

Thorsen has been able to help us articulate our vision and offer us options to implement various solutions. They have proven to be excellent problem solvers and I have particularly been impressed by their ability to quickly adapt to changes. Often within our university, certain process changes have called for more complex data tracking and reporting— a need Thorsen has consistently and successfully met.

Deneen Gillespie

I enthusiastically recommend Thorsen Consulting for any project! No matter what our obstacle was, Thorsen always came to the rescue time and time again.
