Consultants first and programmers/developers second, MindHARBOR promises to always give its
customers its best (straight shooter) advice and if engaged to execute a project, it promises to engineer and deliver an innovative customer-centric solution for organizations.

The company was started in January 2000 in Alpharetta, GA, as an IT Department spin-off of a publicly traded medical manufacturing company. Back then, the company offered everything from application development to web design, hosting, help desk support services and even tried to launch a few products over the following 9 years. During and after the 2008 recession, it dropped its web design and several other services, and started honing in on its true core competency: developing Microsoft Windows based applications and providing consulting services for manufacturers and distributors.

MindHARBOR’s core focus is in developing .NET based applications from the ground up, special projects and problem solving/fixing existing legacy applications, custom ERP programming and integrations, and in providing managed business intelligence reporting services through SQL server reporting services (SSRS).

MindHARBOR’s mission is to help its clients save time and money and wherever possible, to help them drive revenue through the efficient use of cutting edge technology. MindHARBOR was recently engaged in a high priority “special
project” by a leading global healthcare manufacturing conglomerate. The mission was to bring data together from locations around the world, organize their disparate sales transactional data for consolidated (Big Data) reporting and analysis. The MindHARBOR Team incorporated a Microsoft SQL server solution utilizing SSIS, SSRS, and SSAS to organize and harmonize their data.

They provided multiple custom reports with the integration of SSRS and also provided data analytics through the use of SSAS data cubes, and organized their many sources of data through the use of SSIS packages. Their client company felt that MindHARBOR made a meaningful difference for their business and believe that MindHARBOR is truly a partner and an enabler for their global initiatives.

The company is presently co-managed by its Technology Leader Craig Smith, and the Business Operations/Development is led by Mike Blazedell and works around its slogan ‘we work for you, on time, on spec, and on budget!’ It believes that their continued success is not about having a lot of clients, it’s more about having the right clients, and then building trust and a long term relationships with each of those clients one project at a time. If and when the company does well, it becomes the team that these customers call in when they have their next problem or challenge.
