Stafford Associates Computer Specialists, Inc originally concentrated in consulting and system design for small to medium sized businesses as well as providing training and programming for these businesses. Slowly, the company expanded to provide custom programming services along with system and network design.
Our major area of concentration was Networking and Information System Applications, programming both in 3rd generation languages such as Pascal, BASIC, COBOL and LISP, as well as developing customized database solutions using dBASE and RBASE. Increasingly, we were requested to purchase and install computer systems and to network existing systems. We concentrated on recognized brands of hardware such as IBM, Compaq, AST etc... and began to install the IBM PC LAN System, Novell and later the Token Ring Network at various businesses as well as in our office.
By 1987 the company had expanded in two directions. Having developed a reputation for reliable programs, we increased the programming side of the business, both by writing custom programs and developing our own software. Recognizing the lack of suitable programs in specific areas, we began to develop commercial programs for specific markets, specifically the medical area. The result was our main product, "PRESCRIPTION PLUS+", a medical database and prescription manager program. As our expertise in the installation of hardware and networks increased we were called upon to do the physical installation of networks. Today, more than half of our business is in the installation of networks.
Our aim is to provide a complete solution for our customers, hardware, software, network operating system and support. Our current hardware line includes IBM, Lenovo, Hewlett Packard, Lexmark, EMC and Cisco. We are also authorized to service the equipment of the largest manufacturers including Apple, Hewlett Packard, Lenovo, IBM and Xerox. We have extensive experience in both installing and troubleshooting networks on many different platforms. Stafford Associates Computer Specialists, Inc is a PCI/SAS 70/SSAE16 certified data center, providing collocation, managed servers, offsite backup and disaster recovery.
