Odyssey Information Services, a leader in the IT consulting and services industry, is celebrating its 20th anniversary this month.
Over the last two decades, Odyssey has provided its clients with thousands of highly skilled consultants who have helped them complete technology projects on time and offered solutions to improve business performance.
“Much of Odyssey’s success has come down to our commitment and belief in the power of building and maintaining long-standing relationships with key external and internal stakeholders,” said CEO and co-founder Jon Hibbs. “As we recently expanded into the professional services space in a highly competitive industry, continuing those positive relationships with our clients and consultants helped us successfully deploy projects and ensure all business requirements and financial budgets are fully met.”
In addition to providing outstanding consulting services, Odyssey’s ability to adapt to its clients’ ever-changing technology needs has helped the company become a leader in managed service solutions. In 2009, Odyssey added 24/7 platform support to its service offerings, which provided new opportunities to help companies achieve their technology goals by eliminating unplanned downtime in their retail environments.
Odyssey’s line of Remote Systems Management services has evolved into a world-class approach led by a team of industry-recognized experts in 24/7 monitoring, database support, PCI compliance, disaster recovery, network connectivity, system migration, modernization and operations support.
In 2015, Odyssey once again expanded its line of services to include professional development teams that are built to include the full spectrum of design, technical, QA and project management skills. The teams support each other to continually achieve the progression of project deliverables (sprints) on time, every time.
“Professional and managed services have added an increased value to our company by delivering exemplary work and enhancing our client relationships,” Hibbs said. “Some of our larger clients have been with us since our earliest years, and I’m proud to see Odyssey continue to serve their technology and business needs.”
Behind Odyssey’s growth and all of its changes, one important factor has remained constant — finding the best talent.
“Recruiting has always been, and continues to be, the backbone of our company,” said CIO and co-founder Todd Kirkby. “Our success is driven by our ability to find and retain quality people who are not only extremely talented but are also looking to be part of a team environment. Our recruiters and business development managers work hard every day to find the best matches for our candidates and clients.”
As Hibbs looks toward the future, he said he doesn’t see Odyssey’s growth slowing down any time soon—beginning next quarter with construction of a brand-new, state-of-the-art data center in Houston.
“As we embark on 2020 and the next decade, we will continue to expand our service offerings with new office locations in the U.S. and globally,” Hibbs said. “I’m thankful to be surrounded by a team of talented and dedicated professionals, and I’m excited to say the best is yet to come!”
