Our company philosophy is about leading by example. We use cloud based technology and software to run our business. We feel it is important to have a balanced work/life ratio. This means not working more than 40 hours per week, and if you can reduce the workweek to 35 hours per week, we would consider you a progressive Organization.

We believe that family is more important than business and we can show you how to create a better work/life balance for you and your employees.

We believe in treating all our associates in the way we would want to be treated, this includes vendors, customers and staff. This simply means we strive to treat everyone fairly and with compassion, empathy and dignity.

We have a passion for Technology. Call us today at 1-800-985-3853 to have a conversation with John Leishman to discuss your organization's long term goals.
