inPhronesis About Us

Our Story:

inPhronesis was designed by CI consultants who needed to track large amounts of ever-changing data that impacted multiple key client questions. Our team of experts truly understands what is needed in the Competitive and Business Intelligence world inside the Pharma and Biomedical industries.

Our Philosophy:

At inPhronesis, we feel that information that you cannot act on is just useless data. We have been frustrated with the traditional knowledge management systems because we felt they were missing the analysis capabilities and flexibility required to make data actionable, so we developed inVision.

Our Mission:

To offer clients a streamlined interface with custom functionality for their business intelligence. Give users the ability to configure enterprise level solutions that make their customers’ lives easier. Develop inVision as the single tool that provides quick collection and synthesis of everything needed to address the most important tactical and strategic questions.
