The launch event featured a meet and greet with PSC Partners, practice leaders, consultants and other PSC employees.
“We love this city for its superior combination of a growing technical employee base, the Midwest culture that we run our business with and the absolutely top notch quality of businesses that understand value in their technology investments,” said John Quirk, VP, Operations, PSC Group. “Having done business in and around Chicago for over 20 years, our growth indicated that it was time we opened a second Chicago-land office. We are looking forward to offering more flexibility to our clients and employees with our downtown office”
PSC has seen 102% growth since the start of 2010 and with the new Chicago location, expects to add upwards of 30 new technology positions over the next 24 months. “PSC’s growing commitment to Chicago is welcome, and a testament to the dynamic workforce and business environment the city offers,” said Mayor Rahm Emanuel. “I congratulate PSC on its new office in downtown Chicago, and wish the company success in its future endeavors in the city, as part of our robust consulting and IT sector.”
The Chicago office will house the company’s Application Modernization Center and will be led by Mike Reiss, Advisory Services Practice Leader. The new location will provide PSC with extended capacity to develop their Application Modernization efforts in a city that is filled with top IT talent. PSC has already begun hiring new expert consultants and still has several new opportunities to fill.
“I’m excited about the opening of our new office. Located in the heart of Chicago, our Application Modernization Center (AMC) provides a unique opportunity to collaborate with our clients throughout the region on all of their application re-platforming and modernization efforts,” said Mike Reiss. “We’re looking forward to continuing to help our clients find innovative pathways to success. The AMC offers a significant step along that path.”
PSC’s Application Modernization Center provides a full circle solution that will support companies in the migration of collaborative applications from one technical platform to another. It offers the unique opportunity to modernize applications, update processes, improve security and prepare for a more data driven, mobile, social and dynamic future.
PSC approaches re-platforming with a comprehensive view, considering all technology options and offering a wide range of implementation options. From culture change, to network security, the AMC will offer a central hub to learn, plan and execute technology related business initiatives.
