Vermont Systems, Inc. is a privately owned Vermont corporation with headquarters at 12 Market Place, Essex Junction, Vermont 05452. The company was founded on July 1, 1985 by Bob Willey and son, Giles Willey. Soon thereafter, daughters Laura and Kate joined the company. All are actively managing VSI.
The company was initially established as a Value Added Reseller of banking, municipal, and other software applications together with hardware components. In 1988, VSI decided to specialize in developing recreation and parks software applications following a successful bid at the City of New Britain, CT. The struggles leading up to this successful bid, together with the work that was required to complete the project, best illustrate what VSI is today. Since 1988, VSI focuses exclusively on the recreation and parks market.
In 1993, VSI opened a second related market when it signed a contract with the Air Force to provide recreation software for all bases worldwide. This contract, along with a similar Army contract, provided a substantial boost to VSI's growth. Today VSI has over 1100 customers including over 900 municipal and county agencies, several private organizations, and all United States Army, Air Force, Marine, & Navy bases worldwide.
VSI is 100% owned by its employees and management, and VSI's staff of 82 people are committed to providing high quality application software products and responsive customer support. Maintaining its initial family roots, eight current employees sit at the same picnic tables during family gatherings. This last fact is one of the guiding forces behind the company. Each VSI employee is considered an extension of the family.
