We are Spieker Point
Our customer commitment is a mathematical certainty.
At Spieker Point, we believe that evidence-based decision making is the key to helping our customers excel in their market. We build enterprise software that uses predictive analytics and process automation techniques to help our customers get early warning of troubles ahead, and to avoid them while they are small and inexpensive. We start with a customer’s current data—data they already have—and use it to recognize emerging patterns, helping our customer steer towards better financial returns.
Our name was inspired by German mathematician and teacher Theodor Spieker, whose work in the 19th century inspired many of the following centuries’ great thinkers (including Albert Einstein, who received a copy of Spieker’s seminal book at the age of 12). The Spieker Point determines the center of mass of a triangle, which is the balance point between all sides. This calculation has limitless real-world applications, despite its high theory appearance. Our team aims for this balance point—the area of highest value that will facilitate the greatest improvement to your process, your foresight and your profitability. We’ve created systems and technologies that possess the same high level and theoretical thinking as the Spieker Point, but with real-world applications that will improve your business. When we began, the world was hungry for software. But as time went on, we were inspired to integrate business intelligence, analytics and improvement models into customer-focused applications. As such DECK DecisionWare was born.

UI Designer and Project Manager
At Spieker Point, we all wear many hats, but Jeff by far wears the most. As UI Designer, he’s responsible for making our applications as easy to use as possible. But primarily Jeff is the Spieker Point Project Manager. Working closely with our clients and the development team, Jeff ensures that the lines of communication stay open and that the project stays on track. Jeff’s versatile skillset makes him the perfect candidate for these two roles.
In his spare time, Jeff escapes to the mountains any time he can. During the summer, he’s camping and in the winter you’ll find him on the slopes.
