Technology & Business Solutions LLC launched the first GovCon Cloud specializing in accounting and project management systems back in 2004. We have been the GovCon Cloud pioneer for nearly 15 years. Long before many other providers opened their eyes to hosted delivery, TBS has been empowering organizations to expand and stretch their system investments – to get more with less – through intelligent, connected, mobile technologies.
TBS is a passionate champion of “The Power of The Cloud.” Cloud technology transforms legacy business systems and processes with more capability, more visibility, more interconnectivity and more security.
Every day, TBS strives to bring more value to the products it hosts, and to invest in the future of platform delivery, so that our customers stay ahead of the technology curve and focus on what they do best.
