About Us

About us

We came from the halls of public service, corporate boardrooms, higher education, and the front lines of nonprofits. We were fed up with seeing organizations lose revenue and miss out on consumer impact. Too often broad leaps were made between what the data supported and reports.

Our passion for finding facts and using them to create the way forward united us. And so, in 2014 we formed Crane R&D as a next generation consulting firm. We are focused on understanding the objectives of our clients and helping them achieve their goals faster and with less cost. Methodology is our business. We apply and develop innovative techniques to Transform Data into Direction.

Crane R&D is an Ohio-certified Minority Business Enterprise (MBE) and Encouraging Diversity Growth and Equity (EDGE) supplier. We are a Commision on Minority Health – REEP Approved Evaluator, a member of the Data Science Association, and a National Institutes of Health – Network of Minority Research Investigators agency. We are on a State Term Schedule (STS) and offer our management services to the public sector, private sector, and nonprofit organizations.

Our Mission, Vision and Aspiration

Our mission is to help our clients win using facts, strategic planning, and strong implementation.

We envision a world where problems are embraced as opportunities, and facts reign supreme.

Our aspiration is to be the natural partner for analytics across the country.
