Solo Systems, Inc.

Solo Systems, Inc. is a small network of computer consultants who work together as a flexible team on various assignments, with team members varying from project to project. Central to our philosophy is the concept of training and empowering our clients to function without us, leaving future business as an option rather than a necessity. We would rather work closely with a few clients in solid, voluntary relationships than to create dependent clients, and therefore a situation of forced "job security". All of our applications are fully-inheritable, and are designed to be so from the start, allowing clients to take as much control of their systems as they desire.
