Vermont Systems History
Vermont Systems, Inc. is a privately-owned Vermont corporation with headquarters at 12 Market Place, Essex Junction, Vermont. 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, development began on a recreation and parks management software application in response to a bid for the City of New Britain, CT. With the successful completion of the project for the recreation Department in New Britain, it was decided that the application created, RecTrac, might fit the need of other recreation organizations. As new accounts were quickly added, it became apparent that VSI had found its niche - providing innovative and comprehensive recreation management software solutions, and this has been the focus ever since.
In 1992, 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 is fully 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 principles behind the company: 'each VSI employee is considered a part of that family'.
