Proximo was founded in 1997 by two seasoned professional consultants who wanted to create a technology services company. But there are plenty of companies that will send you programmers or write some software. From the start Proximo wanted to give its clients with something different: the service and attention of a small company with the strong management and oversight associated with the big consulting firms. The management of Proximo has worked tirelessly to provide this unique service to all of our clients since our first day in business. Since its inception, Proximo has sustained a 10% average growth rate per year, through both boom and recession years. Our steady growth is by design, as it provides our clients with a stable partner that can continue to focus on customer service.
In 1999 Proximo began to roll out our first products designed to meet the needs of our clients.The first such product was Proximo iSuite, an early generation Java application server that allowed us to easily build complex n-tiered web software way before such products were available from major commercial vendors. This led us to create the Proximo Network in 2000, a managed hosting solution for complex applications, and our more recent products, such as Integral and Entiendo, which provide data warehousing and business intelligence services. We have listened to our membership-based clients, and designed COTERIE, a low-cost yet powerful web 2.0 product. Proximo Service Desk was in response to many clients requesting an approach to outsourced application-level support.
