About Us

About us

We came from everywhere – Fortune 100’s, universities, public service, hospitals, non-profits, and classrooms across the country. We gathered under one simple cause, to help organizations improve outcomes for the people they serve.

Our passion for finding facts and using them to create the way forward unites us. And so, in 2014 we formed Crane R&D as a next generation consulting practice. 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 Commission 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 accuracy reigns supreme.

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