You may want to know a little about the company founders too.
In 1997 Ray was employed as consultant for a high end technological company. He worked at United Health Care in Level 3 Help Desk Service. Ray had been involved in engineering for over 25 years and gradually moved into IT services as technology evolved. While working at UHC, it was clear that many of the issues end users experienced took up more time than necessary for the help-desk staff. Most of the questions could be resolved more easily and quickly though an interactive Intranet by submitting help-desk tickets, regenerating passwords, in FAQ searches and so on. Ray was solely responsible for developing and implementing this project.
Bette had worked in sales and marketing for several years; Ad Specialty sales, Long Term Care Equipment, and Insurance and Financial products.
At the same time, Bette & Ray, both lifetime musicians and entertainers, actively performed in a large pop/rock group called Front Page News, primarily for large corporate functions and weddings, but also major festivals, like Milwaukee’s Summerfest (the largest music festival in the world).
Web sites were just getting started and the internet was exploding as a means of promotion and communication. It made sense to be one of the first bands to have a web site for promotion and they found it to be successful. As a result, with Ray and Bette’s background, they decided to explore the web site business, and as they say, the rest is history!
At this point they are both still active in the business, active musicians, active in theater, and active in life; enjoying the outdoors, family, friends, grand-parenting and embracing all that is great in life.
They enjoy their work and avocations immensely, but the best part is people. It’s really all about relationships; within one’s family and within one’s business. Life is truly a blessing!
