About Us

We Fuel Technology

Fueling Technology for our Clients Since 2004

If we have been asked once, we have been asked a thousand times.  Where did the name OCTANE come from?


Technology and innovation are said to “drive” business.  We decided to take that concept a step further.  We believe they continually fuel a company’s growth.  Which led us to the phrase “We Fuel Technology.”



There was a time in American history when the corner gas station wasn’t a multi-bay, self-serve mega-chain.  It was owned by someone you knew, someone who had earned your trust.  It was an era of simplicity; one of personal service and uncompromised value…the type of service and value that has become the foundation on which we build our business.




OCTANE, established in 2004,  is an exceptional professional services firm providing technology solutions and business consulting services.  We leverage our expertise to deliver solutions that drive business value without breaking your bottom line.  Our clients find us a refreshing alternative to large national consulting firms who bring high billing rates, big egos and are often light on delivery and too heavy on process.  Our work is guaranteed, our rates are reasonable and our staff is experienced and local -a great value for a clients.

We Are a Customer Focused Team of Professionals.

We thrive as problem solvers and love technology challenges especially when creating great outcomes together with our clients.

Data Flight

Data Flight, by OCTANE,  is an innovative data migration and transformation tool that has saved our clients countless hours and thousands of dollars by automating the data migration and transformation process.  Developed in house by our own team of experts only OCTANE can expedite your next data project with Data Flight.

Express AMS (Analytics Managed Services)

OCTANE has fast-tracked your way to Analytics Excellence.  Start making more insightful strategic business decisions based on truth and not just your gut by enrolling in our Express Analytics Managed Services solution.  Let’s face it, by the time you build a strategy, evaluate technology, hire the staff and train your team, who knows what opportunities have been lost.  As early as tomorrow you could be utilizing a best-of-breed analytics solution that includes everything you need for a low monthly fee, all we need is your data and a problem to solve.

No Cost Assessments

OCTANE professionals will meet with you to discuss your requirements, specialized business needs or specific ideas to establish a foundation for moving your project forward and keeping it on track.

A Winning Culture

We are a hard working group of professionals dedicated to our clients and each other.  We are accountable, experienced problem-solvers with a “let’s get it done” attitude and an entrepreneurial spirit.  Like the 1950s service-station we use to model our brand, we believe in the full service approach.   Sure, our office is a little casual at times and you certainly will find some nicknames here like Stosh, Sputter, Jimbo, Flo,  and Tosh to name a few.  But don’t let that fool you, we are serious about technology and fueling world-class business solutions for our clients.  We got our start in 2004 after “doing it” for someone else for decades.  We were here in 2014 and will be in 2024 and beyond.  Our first client is still a client today and many of our team members are long-term as well (ten years or more) illustrating that we have something good (maybe great) going on here.  To potential new clients and consultants alike – come share in our success!
