Our Name

We changed our name in July 2007 from Computer Network Services to Clever Ducks. It's more memorable, has a better URL and represents our team work philosophy. The sight of a group of ducks soaring high in the sky in a "V" formation is a familiar one, but what you may not know is why ducks fly in this formation. Migrating in "V" formation makes it easier for each individual bird to fly, allowing the group to fly up to 70% farther than flying solo. In this formation, the birds play different roles depending on their positions. When the lead duck gets tired, the birds rotate so that another can take the lead. The birds flying behind quack to encourage those in front to keep up their speed.

With such a natural tendency for cooperation, these social animals have something valuable to teach us about teamwork and compassion and we thought they were a great metaphor for how we work. We come along side our clients as a team and we work as a team, so that we can go farther.

To learn about the technical details of how a "V" formation works maximizing advantages of upwash and wing vortices, see www.aerospaceweb.org.
