GuideIT - a Perot Company - to Open Technology Center in Wichita Falls, Texas
PLANO, Texas, March 1, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- GuideIT, a Perot company, and provider of technology optimization services, today announced the opening of a technology center in Wichita Falls, Texas.
Opening in April 2016, the center will initially be used to provide customer service support and IT operations services. Long term plans include other information technology and healthcare-specific positions requiring individuals with clinical education and experience. As part of its expansion to Wichita Falls, GuideIT anticipates creating US-based jobs where roles have traditionally been outsourced to non-domestic locations.
"Increasingly, we are seeing customers who are excited about the opportunity to move their IT operations to a cost-effective, high-quality location in the United States," said Chuck Lyles, president and CEO for GuideIT. "Wichita Falls is an ideal city because of its workforce, close proximity to DFW, the university and the military base."
Launched in 2013, GuideIT is the third in a lineage of Perot IT services companies. Its focus is on technology optimization. The market demand has enabled substantial revenue growth over the past two years. The new center in Wichita Falls is the second real estate expansion in the past six months. Late in 2015, GuideIT secured a 17,000 square foot location for its corporate headquarters in Plano, Texas.
"After I introduced Ken Hill to the Chamber staff last April, they went to work to bring GuideIT to Wichita Falls," said Mayor Glenn Barham. "Hoping the company would locate an operation here, we are very pleased to announce that they chose Wichita Falls for this new, high-tech service center. GuideIT will be locating in our reinvigorated downtown. With excellent wages and benefits, the company will have a $12 million economic impact on our area."
"Wichita Falls has made us feel welcome," said Lyles. "We look forward to being a part of this great community."
As a provider of technology optimization services, we believe doing technology right is the difference between leaders and the rest. We help companies lead. Through a collaborative and easy-to-do-business-with approach, the company helps customers align IT operations in meeting their strategic business needs, better govern and manage the cost of IT, and effectively navigate change in technology.
