About Sciens

Sciens Consulting, LLC is a management and information technology (IT) consultancy headquartered in McKinney, Texas, serving public sector clients throughout the United States and Canada. The company was formed in 1989 to support the management and IT consulting needs of local government. Sciens (skē’ǝnz) assesses business strategies and aligns organizations, processes and technologies to improve efficiencies that translate into bottom-line results.

When used correctly, technology can help to facilitate integrated, collaborative organizations. Translated, Sciens means “skillful management.” We are truly committed to sharing our knowledge and management skill to create organizational excellence for our clients. Our proven methodology and toolsets focus clearly on aligning IT with the business vision, and establishing IT as a strategic component of the organizational plan. We streamline how work is done – workflows, organizational structure, technology infrastructure – and improve processes to service customers in the most efficient way.

From our perspective, improving process and technology architecture is about more than just “keeping up.” Our services are ideally suited for organizations that want to perform better by identifying new revenue streams, and lowering costs through improved efficiency.
