What Clients Are Saying

Optum Health

VP Shared Services

Evantage is my chosen partner when I need to drive an important initiative forward because of their ability to handle complexity, deal with ambiguity and navigate our internal politics. Working with them gives me peace of mind because they always deliver.

<h2 class="light" >UCare</h2>


Manager Provider Relations

The Evantage team always instilled the feeling within our team that they were truly in this effort with us together, 100%, … that they understood the political and operational obstacles facing the team and were ready to deftly help us maneuver through whatever should face us. A true partnership.

ECAP Technology Manager

Evantage was a key voice in developing our approach, consolidating learnings, and clarifying pain points and requirements. While (they) certainly had a set of perspectives and approaches, they melded well with our own and it was clear throughout that they wished to adjust to and meet our needs. Our communication was consistent from start to finish and even now we are in touch as they remain curious on our progress since the engagement.

Winfield (agricultural division of Land O’ Lakes)

Director, Winfield Operations

Evantage Consulting has been our partner in more deeply understanding our customer. The result has been a more informed, outside in approach to how we communicate with our layers of customers, including distributors and growers. Without Evantage, our insights and process would not have been nearly as robust and effective

Market Research & Insights Manager

Evantage really stands out because of the way they partner with us. They give insights culled from best practices based on many years of experience, and most importantly, they give us solutions. Many other firms tell me what my problems are; Evantage provides ideas on how to solve my problems.
