Insightful, Pragmatic, Intentional & Objective Solutions
We Raise The Bar
The company was established in 1994. We started as risk management and operations consultants. We are on a mission to provide support and leadership for transformational change, and to raise the bar for risk and compliance management. We have expanded our capabilities and closed the gaps that would compromise our ability to deliver.
Today, as a mature business, we have adopted the name “UVIDI”. This word means “Insight” and we believe that is the value we bring into our approach and relationships with our clients. We are dedicated to solving the complex issues in transformation that:
- Drive up costs
- Derail execution
- Create risk
- Impact compliance and
- Indicate gaps in their capabilities
We specialize in solving our clients’ business challenges. Even before we formed the company, we were solving problems and managing risk - it’s part of our identity.
