Contego Tech Solutions Inc. was formed in 2006 as a merger of two IT Support companies each with over 10 years of history. Since that time Contego has grown to a team of over 20. We complement our team with some part-time and contracted specialists for unique requirements, large projects or work outside Alberta when the need arises.
In 2018, Contego expanded again when it merged with SSL Solutions Inc., a full service ERP solutions provider that was founded in 2005 and sold and supported Acumatica, MS Dynamics Suite and Deltek ERP solutions across North America. For many years Contego and SSL had worked collaboratively at numerous clients and the resulting synergy from solving client needs just made sense to join forces and expand our solution set that we can offer to our clients. Our clients benefit when we provide both ERP and IT solutions because problems are solved quickly, efficiently with little disruption and finger pointing.
From our downtown Calgary office location, we combine remote service capabilities and a mobile workforce to offer immediate support for customers that have branch offices across Canada and the world.
Our development team has written several add-on and stand-alone products to meet client needs for better system integration or just more efficient processes to streamline their businesses enhancing their bottom line. These solutions function on both connected devices as well as mobile devices.
Our customer base is diverse, spanning many industries. Being in Calgary we have a significant number of oilfield related clients including petroleum producers, geology & geophysics exploration, oilfield services, supply and manufacturing. These companies have a high value mobile workforce as well as regulatory compliance mandates to follow; supporting these users challenges us to offer leading edge infrastructure and support while maintaining best practices for security and reliability.
Other industries we support include retail, service, restaurant, media, travel, accounting, education, property management, HVAC and electrical contractors. Each of these industries presents their own set of challenges.
Many of our customers have their own in-house IT resources in some capacity; we supplement these in-house resources by filling in gaps in their service capability, vacation and disaster recovery coverage, systems design and project management. We work cooperatively with internal and external resources, either as the managing lead or the technical resource using multi-vendor teamwork to provide the best possible experience for users and management.
Many of our customers and employees have been with us through thick and thin and the volatility in the marketplace that we all face. Together we have weathered several business downturns and upticks. We have built strong business relationships through these times and our customers know that they can count on us for quality advice and support when business and technology challenges arise.
