Welcome to the “Single Corporation” initiative

Overview 

Having grown over time through acquisitions and expansion, PiTech operates under a legal structure in which each of our Divisions (Groups) is a separate nationally incorporated company. These Divisions (Groups) include PiTech Software Group, PiTech Computer Sales Group, PiTech Computer Training Group, PiTech Computer Repair and Maintenance Group and The PiTech Business Consulting Group.

This legal structure has served us well in the past but does not provide the most effective environment for us to meet customer and business needs in the future. For example, customers who currently have an account with one PiTech Division cannot do business with another PiTech Division without being treated as a new customer. A multiple company environment also increases operational complexity and impacts our ability for efficient integration of acquisitions. To resolve these and other issues, the corporation has intended for some time to take eventual advantage of the opportunity to operate under a single national Corporation. We've determined that now is the appropriate time to take this course of action, and we plan to do so with all deliberate speed.

This transition will require various legal and regulatory steps and will impact many internal technical, financial and operational systems. In order to manage the conversion to a single corporation in a comprehensive and orderly fashion, we've established a formal project structure with key resources assigned across the corporation. 

Work is currently under way to finalize assumptions and begin the design process. 

Because the single company initiative will affect virtually every area of the corporation, it's likely that your organization will be involved in or impacted by this project. There's a tremendous amount of work ahead of us, but a single corporation will provide significant benefits to PiTech going forward.

If you have questions or comments related to this initiative, don't hesitate to e-mail us your questions. We're looking forward to a speedy and successful conversion to a single company environment
