Why "Point 600"?
We are called Point 600 because it takes 600 milliseconds for the human brain to articulate language. This name represents the quantitative side of communications.
Modernize communications methods so communicators don’t just survive, they thrive.
We believe the role of communications has never been more important. Yet budgets remain tight and headcounts remain lean.
With more channels, stakeholders, and content to manage than ever before, communicators are asked to deliver greater value with fewer resources.
Common communication approaches can lead to employee burnout, inefficiency, or hard-to-articulate results.
We’re here to help.
We build data and analytics infrastructure, define effective processes, and optimize communications technology (CommTech) to make the lives of communicators easier.
Our goal is always to enable communications leaders to operate with greater impact, intelligence, and efficiency.
We do this through three core our principles:
Systems-Thinking: We view the communications function as an integrated system, and we use systems-thinking to help communications teams thrive. We design communications solutions to be practical and actionable so your team can see immediate and sustained impact.
Data-Driven: We're analytics experts and data is at the heart of what we do. Our counsel is always rooted in data and designed to be measurable over time.
Technology-Enabled: Technology is a great asset when deployed effectively and integrated into your existing workflows. We will look for opportunities to let technology help your team be as effective as possible without sacrificing the quality of your work.
