Formula Consultants Incorporated is dedicated to solving complex, challenging problems
in a rich mix of legacy and modern computing environments to help its customers
achieve their business objectives.
Our many customers know us for our quick response time, and our ability to work
creatively and intensely to produce a superior solution to customer problems. We
care about our customers’ success and we work hard to contribute to that success.
Our intense focus on service applies to our proprietary products, which we sell
and support; and also to the software packages we develop and maintain for others
to distribute. When large computer companies like Unisys or Storage Technology subcontract
crucial technical work to us, we adopt their methods and processes; and meet or
exceed their standards of performance. It’s obvious to us: FCI succeeds by making
sure our clients succeed.
Our Market Focus
FCI excels in the Unisys market. We’ve been there when they were Sperry and Burroughs,
and have stayed with our customers, helping them adapt to many waves of change brought
by Unisys’s product improvements and the greater industry trends.
FCI distributes and supports third-party products, such as STAR-1100, a software
tape management system; and OTS-1100, a terminal security package; and AccommoDATE,
a comprehensive date simulator for testing. FCI-developed and marketed products
set the standard for technical excellence and support service in the Unisys marketplace.
Our Clients' Benefits
For most companies, staff turnover is a constant problem, adding cost and risk to
IT projects. In contrast, FCI has a very stable technical staff base, ensuring technical
continuity on projects that often surpasses that of our clients. That is, FCI’s
staff usually has greater longevity on the project than the corresponding staff
in our clients’ organizations. For this reason, it is common for our clients to
delegate overall project direction to our highly-experienced staff. A further client
benefit is that, because key FCI engineers are available from the early development
of a complex project through delivery, maintainance, and future enhancements, delivery
costs are minimized while quality is maximized.
FCI engineers are highly adaptable to varying customer preferences in their business
processes and “style.” We deliver to large organizations in government, military,
and private industry; and are experienced in interfacing with DOD personnel in highly
classified assignments. We also work productively with small entrepreneurial firms,
or small business units inside larger corporations.
There is no “secret” to FCI’s success. We earn our customers’ trust with highly
skilled talent, straight-forward and honest communication, and years of experience
in our customers’ focus areas. We’ve built solutions into the minute details of
all areas of the IT spectrum, including networking, I/O, operating systems enhancements,
performance tuning, database, communications protocols, terminal emulation, integration
of foreign hardware devices, datacenter automation, web, wireless, and much more.
