FOUNDER, OWNER & TECHNOLOGY EXPERT
With over 18 years of professional experience in the software development, James has seen enormous changes in the technology landscape. He started his career writing employee management sofware for a small chain of restaurants in Southern Indiana and then went on to work for a small newspaper where they pioneered online news long before the mainstream papers thought about getting in on the act. James spent several years working with the retail logistics industry developing online ordering systems and creating custom integration software. It was during this time that James had the privilege of writing a mobile software application that was used in every surgical suite at the Mayo Clinic that would allow them to track surgical items being used in the operations.
Taking a break from the retail logistics industry, James went to work for Wausau Homes, a national homebuilding company. At WH, James developed a centralized intranet system that brought together several legacy systems and one giant ERP system (SAP). James' last stop as an employee in the corporate world was with a banking logistics company where he was part of a team that produced an award winning remote deposit web-based application.
Through all the corporate years, there was one thing missing; interaction with the clients. James decided in 2007 that it was time to make a break from corporate life and focus on bringing his talents to the small business customers who could really benefit from his expertise and experience.
