From Tympani, Inc. to Mindsight

Mindsight (formerly Tympani, Inc.) is not just your average value-added reseller. We’re much more than that. While the technology we offer is important, it’s only one part of a larger solution to help your company use the resources you have to their fullest potential. At the heart of it all, we’re technology consultants.

At Mindsight, we strive to understand your technology and business needs, along with your views and your goals to ensure that our views, recommendations, and the direction we lay out for you are aligned. We take the time to get to know you, because a business is more than just its IT department. By taking the extra step and learning your strategy, we make sure that our recommendations get you closer to your goals in the most efficient and productive manner possible. We’re thoughtful, reflective, and a little nerdy—and wanted a name that would best represent us. That’s why we chose the name Mindsight.

Even with all the changes, we’re still the same Chicago IT consulting firm you’ve known since 2004. Now we just have a name that fits us and our technology consulting model. You can still rely on us for decades of experience, cutting-edge technology solutions from the industry’s top manufacturers, and for being a reliable partner. We’re Mindsight, and we believe thoughtful technology and transparent transactions are the best way to build trust.

Every company under the sun talks about how trustworthy they are. Instead of another lecture, we encourage you to discover it for yourself. Explore our client reviews from Clutch.co below, subscribe to our blog, and reach out to a Mindsight technology consultant. We’re ready when you are. From the data center to the contact center and beyond, we’re here to listen, solve problems, and deploy the infrastructure you need to succeed. 

Our name may be new, but our commitment to our clients is the same as it has always been. Know what you’re getting into with a transparent technology partner you can trust.
