Information and Communications Technology

Whether you are focused on selling your products to government or working to address regulatory issues with municipal, provincial or federal governments, TACTIX adds value. We work with clients to understand their technical challenges and then synthesize those issues and value propositions for a government audience.

We specialize in helping clients sell services and software to meet government needs. TACTIX provides value-added advice by providing in-depth understanding of the user community in government and the unique needs of different departments to help clients sell solutions rather than just commoditized products.

Our clients include: systems integrators, IT service providers, software development companies, and manufacturers.
