We care about our community and are inspired to be a values-led company.

What's with the Hedgehog?

Our hedgehog is:

"We bring GFD to life"

It's a philosophy inspired by the book "Good to Great" where author Jim Collins uses the help of a hedgehog to describe focusing on just one business practice to achieve long-term success and growth. This "do one thing and do it well" purpose fuels our passion, which is to bring Great Freakin’ Data to life for our clients.


Our Culture

Culture sm

A lot of companies can say the customer is the priority, but rarely do they show the same involvement in the community and in employees' welfare."

3Ts – Serving Our Community

Time. Talent. Treasure.

3Ts is our award-winning philanthropic committee dedicated to serving our local community.

Our volunteer efforts include bagging meals for the hungry, taking steps toward a cure, cleaning our local beaches, and organizing annual toy and blood drives.

The largest 3Ts event is our annual golf tournament #Drives4Rides, held on the first Friday of May, benefitting The Emilio Nares Foundation, a local nonprofit that navigates families through their child's journey with cancer.

Where others might give up, gap intelligence is always asking what more can we do? We’re incredibly grateful this company is as moved as we are to help navigate families through their child’s journey with cancer by donating their time, talents, and treasure.
