Leveraging What’s Possible Through Digital Transformation

Our clients appreciate that we don't come to the table with a one-size-fits all solution. We dig in and get to the root of the problem…or problems. From there, we unveil our discoveries and collaborate with our clients to craft unique business solutions. Because we truly believe that together, anything is possible.

Our Mission

To apply innovation and expertise, leveraging what's possible through technology advancements.

Our Vision

To live at the forefront of technology, giving our clients a competitive edge.

Blue Ocean Story

Blue Ocean Consulting, a division of MarksNelson, was founded in 1995 with headquarters in Kansas City. We’re a technology consulting firm creating digital solutions to solve business problems and drive growth.

We’re experts in identifying opportunities in workflow, process improvement, customer engagement, data management and access, IIoT, data analytics and business modeling. We have specialized in technology consultation, software development and data analytics for more than 20 years.

For 50 years, they’ve continued to look at the big picture, delivering timely, accurate and cost-saving accounting services that outpace expectations.

Together with MarksNelson, we’re leading the charge when it comes to investing in resources and technology that will help safeguard and grow our client’s businesses.
