RESULTS Technology was formed in 1994 as Computer Supply Source. Its focus was selling computer hardware, software, and supplies to commercial, government and educational customers.
1995 was a year of dramatic growth and saw the company acquire a network services company allowing them to provide a full range of network and hardware repair services in addition to a growing line of computer products.
In 1997, the company adopted the new name of “Computer Source” and was a privately held company. Revenues grew steeply over the years with $12 million recorded in 1999 to $50 million in the year 2000. The company pursued and achieved key certifications including Sun Enterprise, Novell and Microsoft Gold. The company expanded its Midwest presence opening offices in Topeka, Wichita, Omaha and St. Louis.
From 2001 to 2003 the IT market collapsed, and the company had a significant downturn. In 2003, John French purchased an interest in the company and assisted in right-sizing the company. The new investment in Computer Source set the groundwork to acquire CompuNet Engineering, which was then a subsidiary of the Gold Banc Corporation. CompuNet was a premier networking services provider to businesses primarily in the Kansas City and St. Louis metropolitan areas. CompuNet had enjoyed an even richer history with its roots tracking back to the late 1970s as a division of CompuSpeak Inc. In 1999, CompuNet was acquired by Gold Banc to operate as an internal and external provider of local area networks and bank processing support.
Computer Source closed the sale with Gold Banc to purchase CompuNet in January of 2004. The companies were completely merged in mid-February with the corporate headquarters occupying a location in Lenexa, Kansas.
In the April of 2005, the merged companies changed their name to “RESULTS Technology” to more accurately reflect the company’s role in providing services and products to businesses. The name also aligned the company with the new business direction of offering solutions that lead to results for the clients.
A year later, RESULTS Technology launched RESULTS Information Technology Administration (RITA), a managed service offering that provides customers with a fixed fee for various IT support functions.
Since 2005, RESULTS has focused on transitioning from a company dependent on product and professional service sales to providing monthly IT services with a recurring revenue model. In essence, an outsourced IT department for small companies with 10-75 computer users.
In 2006 RESULTS established an Asset Disposition Division to assist companies dispose of excess IT equipment in an environmentally friendly way. In 2012 this division was spun out into a wholly owned subsidiary named Secure E-Cycle. The ownership of the Kansas City franchise of ProShred purchased an interest in Secure E-Cycle. In April 2013 ProShred purchased 100% of Secure E-Cycle.
As part of the transitioning process, RESULTS established a specialty in IT compliance for those industries with regulatory requirements. The specialty is primarily in banking and health care for small businesses with 10-75 computer users.In 2015 RESULTS Technology acquired privately held IT solutions provider VisionPace-IT and absorbed both its employees and clients into RESULTS’ Kansas City location.
Also in 2015, RESULTS was chosen to partner with Data Center Inc. (DCI), a privately-owned developer of iCore360® core banking software and related technologies for community banks nationwide. This further cemented the banking vertical for RESULTS.
