Consulting is more than building better businesses and meeting client needs; it's about solving the world’s biggest problems to create a better future. At Credera, this means living out our global, boutique approach by partnering with our clients to create deep relationships that generate extraordinary results. It means working through change, innovating the future, and creating lasting impact.
But what does it actually feel like to work with Credera? Finding a capable consulting partner isn’t the challenge. Finding a consulting partner you trust and enjoy working with is the real challenge.
So what makes Credera different?
We asked our clients to answer that question. Here’s what BGSF has to say about why Credera is a partner they trust and what we achieved together.
A challenge shared: BGSF’s story
BGSF is a nationwide leader in strategic workforce solutions. Headquartered in Plano, Texas, BGSF provides workforce solutions to a variety of industries through its various brands. As of 2021, they offer job title opportunities in industries such as IT, Project Management, HR, Accounting, Administrative, Cyber Security, Property Management, and Commercial.
In 2007, during his position as CIO at a previous employer, Chris Loope needed help with some initial challenges. He began by reaching out to old coworkers who were now working at small, technology consulting firm - Credera. At that time, Credera had roughly 40-50 employees.
"I still remember the first project," Chris said. "We set up change management, bringing some order and control. The second project was bringing value by automating our onboarding systems. That's how it started."
That led to over 11 years of partnership with that organisation.
Chris later joined BGSF in 2019. On starting with the company, he was faced with the challenge of renovating their technology stack after 17 acquisitions and years of underspending and building technical debt. Credera partnered with the BGSF team on many different projects to help with these challenges, including building out the initial IT assessment, putting together a roadmap, staffing an integration dev team, completing numerous vendor selections, implementations, system integrations, and more.
The Credera Difference, in BGSF’s words
After fifteen years of ongoing partnership, here’s what Chris Loope, Chief Strategy Officer at BGSF, had to say about the Credera difference:
“It feels like they're part of the team. We've executed hundreds of projects and scope of works. It's not when things are going great that you can look back at those successes and say, "Oh yeah, Credera's great." It's when things don't go great and you can still come through on the other side... that's the Credera Difference."
Nycole Risen, Chief Information Officer, added:
“The reason we've partnered with Credera for the past fifteen years is because I appreciate the expertise they bring to solve our complex problems. I wholeheartedly believe that Credera wants us to succeed, and they celebrate our successes with us."

The Credera Difference, in Credera’s words
Credera is a global boutique. This means you have access to a global wealth of expertise with the personalised approach you’d expect from a local partner.
From initial vision through execution, we help clients make a measurable impact while forging incredible and authentic relationships.
Here’s what that means to us:
Global scale, boutique experience: We offer the experience, expertise, and geographic reach of a global organisation, but with the hands-on and focused approach of a boutique firm. This means we craft each solution to the unique and critical needs of each client we serve.
Measurable impact: Actions are stronger than words. Our current clients rated Credera a 9.2 out of 10 on likelihood to recommend us to a friend and 100% of client survey responses rated our outputs as high (30%) or very high (70%) quality. That means we’re delivering real results that make an impact for the long run.
Authentic relationships: Incredible impact and authentic relationships come from doing the real work together. The magic happens when we ask the right questions, don’t assume anything, and understand what unique people and sectors need, want, and what truly matters to them at the end of the day.
Vision through execution: Working with a consulting firm should be simple, comprehensive, and move at warp speed. With efficient transition, immediate momentum, and quick results, our creative, growth-focused team knows what it takes to go fast and make an impact from idea through execution.
