Our Inspiration

Welcome to Fortnight Solutions! We are a young business data solutions start-up out of Dallas, Texas, co-founded by Robert Hollon and Matt Hirst.

Our goal? To provide robust solutions for small-to-medium business needs, all at an affordable price. And the best part is, we do it your way, learning your business alongside you.

We’ve developed an elevator pitch for what we’re trying to do, and it goes a little something like this:

“In the business world, there are so many data management and reporting needs that suck time out of your day or you simply don't have the labor to address. And yet, a lot of the external solutions these companies could use are simply unaffordable on a smaller business budget.

Take Power BI, for example, a Microsoft solution that many business owners in the world could utilize and benefit from significantly.

Well, here’s the issue. Power BI only has two subscription options: Power BI Pro, for $9.99 a month per user, and Power BI premium..... WHICH WILL RUN YOU $4,995 MONTHLY. And that’s on top of annual subscription costs.

Now, granted, that’s Microsoft, and they’re one of the most prominent players in the game. But isn’t that spread insane? We could make similar arguments using Microsoft’s SQL pricing, as well as the cost for many other data, CRM, and even social media solutions, but we think you get the point.

What about the middle ground? The way we see it, we’re still living in the Wild Wild West when it comes to harnessing data and providing third-party business solutions to small businesses, and only more so when it comes to building out the systems that can provide that data quickly.

Making the most of your data is becoming more and more critical by the day, and we want to ride that wave by offering efficient and affordable, yet powerful small business solutions.”

If this is something you’re interested in, let us know. We’d love to help you. We'll follow up in the coming days with what we've been working on with our first few customers, as well as what we can offer you overall.
