© 2009 Meister Corporation
We are a custom software development and technical consulting company whose
purpose is to enable your organization to integrate its people and business
processes with technology as effectively and efficiently as possible. So
how are we different than other companies that provide similar services?
Our logo says it all: It's not about solutions, it's about empowerment.
We don't offer preconceived solutions that your problems must be made to fit.
We empower you to solve your own problems through careful planning and the
development of systems custom designed to meet your specific needs. We
don't have a sales staff whose primary purpose is to convince you to purchase as
many of our products and services as possible and who don't fully understand what the
capabilities and limitations of the relevant technologies are. Our
consultants are highly experienced, highly certified software designers who fully
understand the capabilities and limits of various technologies and can help you
determine the most effective way to use technology in your organization.
Our sales staff only identifies and contacts organizations that might benefit from
our services and then sets up the appointments for our consultants.
At Meister Corporation, we're happy to help you solve a specific problem if that
is all you need, but what really distinguishes us from many other companies that
provide similar services is:
Our primary purpose is to help you empower your organization, not to maximize our sales. If we don't think
we can provide what you need we'll say so. We'll even suggest companies or
people that can help if we know of any with the necessary expertise.
We have the ability to work with you to look past the immediate problem and
envision what you would like your software systems and related business
processes to be. A clearly defined goal and proper planning are essential
to keeping costs in line and delivery on time. See our Planning and Design
page for details on how we do this.
Our software developers are all Microsoft certified. While we often need to
integrate systems from multiple vendors for our clients (i.e. Oracle databases, third
party accounting systems, etc...) we have found that when it comes to developing
custom applications and processes, Microsoft tools and software provide a more
cost effective combination of power, security, ease of use, and maintainability
than the tools and software provided by other vendors - even open source
software. See our Technology System
Development page for details on the specific tools and
technologies in which our staff have expertise.
We understand security and the other factors and trade-offs involved in
designing a technology system better than most other technical
consulting firms. Whether you need a data driven web site, an enterprise
class custom application, or a sophisticated business intelligence system you
can be sure that security, performance, and other critical factors will be
properly balanced according to the priorities you set and built into the design from the beginning - not
added as an afterthought.
Our rates are very competitive considering the capabilities of our staff.
Most companies with similarly qualified staff charge more for their services.
Most companies that charge similar or lower amounts than we do have more junior
level staff. For more information on our rates see our
