Business consultants for a changing world
AGContext helps people in business improve both sustainability and profitability through better information management.
We believe that small and medium sized business is the bedrock of the Australian economy. However, we face many challenges due to the changing needs of employees and customers. This means we must transform our business systems in ways that maintain profitability, provide better customer service and also, have less impact on the environment.
AGContext was founded in 2013 by Carl Sudholz to help people in small and medium business, ‘Think Global, Act Local’. We are independent business consultants who bring together the professions of Business Analysis, Information Technology and Business Sustainability. We specialize in the use of information technology to align the systems of business with people, purpose and planet.
We empower business to become more sustainable and profitable.

Business consultants for a better future
Our globalized systems of business are having a massive impact upon our Earth. The fact is, the global issues of the environment such as pollution and climate change, are a direct outcome of our collective systems of production and profit in business. Therefore, to solve this crisis we must transform our business systems to remove those wastes that accumulate in nature (i.e. carbon, chemicals and plastics) and cause extreme environmental events (i.e. drought, heatwaves and storms).
To a large degree, this reality is changing the expectations of employees and customers for business, big and small. Business is expected to provide affordable products and services while also having less impact on community and environment. This can be overwhelming because it is hard to know where to start and the impact on the business bottom line is often unclear. In the end, a business can not be sustainable if it is not also profitable.
Yet, within this crisis of business, there is also a great opportunity. This is because whenever a business makes a change to their systems, it is also a chance to reduce its waste and impact. With an open mind and some clever design, both sustainability and profit can be improved as one.
