subsection heading icon     the consultancy

Caslon Analytics is an Australian research, analysis and strategies consultancy. We have a particular interest in technology and regulation.

We help government bodies, businesses (large and small) and individuals reach their objectives.

How? By providing expert advice about electronic publishing, marketing, commerce and regulation of the net.

Some clients want a road map for the information highway: information about technological, legal and market developments that affect their online activity. We can give you a sense of internet opportunities and dangers. And we can work with you in understanding what your competitors - or your peers - are doing.

Other clients have sought advice about specific issues. These have included how to protect online intellectual property, whether the solution offered by a vendor will meet the client's needs, and identification of best practice.

We do not know all the answers. No one does. We emphasise the quality of our research, our insights and our willingness to listen. We'll get you to where you want to go, with a minimum of fuss, no jargon and no attitude.

subsection heading icon     who are we?

We have a background in government, business, education and agriculture.
