What Henderson didn’t mention…

| May 26, 2007

…is that he was interviewed by BusinessWeek.com, which has now written up the OSG Hardtack website:

Finally, I promised earlier that I’d explain why OSG built this site — since my first question upon finding this site was, “Who are these guys and why did they create this?” One of OSG’s specialties is designing systems for large financial-service firms that captures and collects data from a company’s internal databases and then allow top execs to spot emerging trends — for instance, helping a bank to spot real-time trends in demand for mortgages, city-by-city, which types of mortgages are hot, etc.

OSG wanted to provide prospective clients with an example of what the firm is capable of doing, and decided to build their prototype around housing values, in part because it’s a topic of universal interest and partly because their bots could easily collect listings data from NAR chapter sites around the country.

Congrats to BruceH and OSG. ..bruce w..
