About Us

Meet Tamara Phillips, owner of New Ideas Consulting Inc. Born and raised in Kansas, Tamara transplanted to Colorado in the late 80’s for a programming job with an Aviation software company.  It was a big stepping stone in her career having started out in the computer industry as a keypunch operator.  If you remember what that job is then you must have grown up in the same era.  

As the computer industry expanded and grew, so did Tamara’s career in Software Programming, System Engineering, National Account Sales and Management with a variety of  computer hardware and telecommunications companies.  When the telecommunications market imploded, the opportunity to get involved with the Act! contact management system in 1997 presented itself and the rest is history! 

New Ideas Consulting incorporated in the spring of 2003. The name evolved from the desire to provide services with a focus on helping business attain their goals with more nontraditional ideas and concepts.

Tamara joined the Keystroke Partner Program in the fall of 2018 offering a full suite of services, products and technical support all related to Act!.
