Head Start identifies strongly with ‘Kime’, a term in martial arts meaning power and focus.It can be interpreted to mean, To deliver the most effective technique in the shortest and most focussed time possible. Or put another way Bringing all your energy and resources to focus into a specific point at the correct time.

  • We have engaged Head Start solutions to assist us in optimizing our ERP system and Customer engagement program. We knew we had data available to allow us to make smarter decisions but it was locked in our ERP system and needed a simple fast and reliable way for our heavy users to pull out the data and get it presented in a way that they could make smarter decisions in a shorter time frame. Headstart have become an integral part of our IT solution. The team understand our business and can therefore help us build the right technical solutions not just the solutions we think we need.
