We work with our clients, and help them realize their business goals by alleviating them of the worry about staffing, strategic projects, systems integration work, and upgrades. We work on a variety of IT projects, and general staffing needs.
The company began providing professional services and consulting (mostly Mainframe based in our early years). We began in Canada, supporting the nation's banks, insurance companies, retail concerns, and government agencies. These services were typically around IBM's mainframe product set. By the mid 90s, our services had grown and deepened to the point that IBM invited us to open a US office to provide a similar service to their clients in the mid western states.
Buffalo is a short 2 hour drive from Toronto, so it made logical sense to establish operations here to cover not just our Canadian clients, but also to begin to grow our US based services.
In more recent years, we have increased our scope and reach, while we still enjoy a strong relationship with IBM. We are, however, no longer as 'IBM centric' as in those early days. In point of fact, our revenue has moved from nearly 100% IBM derived, to less than 10% today.
At the same time, we have expanded by industry and geography, and now cover the majority of the US through both virtual locations (out of Buffalo), as well as with regional based account managers across the country.
Our more 'vendor agnostic' services today include staffing and consulting in Middleware (WebSphere, BPM, portals, ESB), systems management and administration, database management and administration, as well as network support and management on most major platforms and systems.
The company is far more than just a 'search and staffing' company. We provide, instead, a full spectrum of professional services, including IT/IS support, training, and full executive search for both our IT, and non IT based accounts.
We have also always remained close to the 'users' of software, systems and products. As such, we maintain active associations and membership and management of and in a variety of user groups internationally, including:
The Southern Ontario (Canada) WebSphere Users Group
The Toronto CICS Association (executive member)
The Wisconsin DB2 Users Group (founding sponsor)
The Western Michigan WebSphere Users Group
The Wisconsin WebSphere Users Group
