Summary
  • DataTec Industries grew from nine employees and $500,000 in revenue in 1976 to 300 employees and $31 million in revenue in 1991 and greatly overtaxed its corporate computer system in the process. The company provides equipment and services to retailers to connect electronic cash registers and coupon machines. Ironically, while providing technical advice to customers, the company itself was using outdated systems and technologies to process billing and invoicing data. After losing a major account due to repeated billing errors, DataTec Pres Christopher Carey decided to overhaul the company's data processing system. The new $1 million system will feature an IBM AS/​400 minicomputer linked with LANs in each of DataTec's eight field offices. The company hopes to decrease job-costing and inventory time with the new system and expects to exceed $60 million in revenue in 1995.
