HISTORY

Solugenix has a rich history in IT solutions and Service Management innovation that goes back to our founding in 1969. Through the years, we’ve helped to generate ground-breaking, industry-defining solutions such as:

  • Developed the first cell phone billing systems
  • Created a comprehensive database and tools for geographic navigation (before anyone believed in the practicality of it)
  • Incubated and launched several successful companies in the areas of hospital inventory management, specialized staffing and support center services in the last 10 years
  • Pioneered a structured approach to technology support, for the quick service restaurant industry in the 1980’s, when that industry was used to fragmented, spotty support

Today, these ground-breaking innovations still serve as foundational aspects that have helped these industries and the major players to evolve.
