CAMBRIDGE FIRM BREAKING TECHNOLOGY BARRIERS WITH OPEN SYSTEMS INTEGRATION

 CAMBRIDGE FIRM BREAKING TECHNOLOGY BARRIERS
 WITH OPEN SYSTEMS INTEGRATION
 CAMBRIDGE, Mass., April 1 /PRNewswire/ -- Nestled between Harvard and MIT is one of the most exciting young professional services companies of the '90s, Cambridge Technology Partners (CTPartners).
 The Cambridge-based custom computer software developer thrived during the recession last year by tripling profits, hiring 70 new employees, and opening three remote offices in New York, California and Chicago. The firm is further strengthened by solid financial backing from Safeguard Scientifics, a Pennsylvania venture capital firm which backed other successful technology companies such as Novell and Compucom.
 CTPartners' market niche stemmed from organizations' need to make all their different computers communicate with one another freely. "Organizations have made major investments in databases and PCs over the past decade which have created pockets of information within their organization. We integrate all the information to make it work for the organization, not to weigh it down," said President and CEO James Sims.
 CTPartners accomplishes this by using UNIX(R) technology to build customized, user-friendly systems that have a direct and measurable impact on a business' bottom line. Each application supports specific corporate goals and objectives such as improving customer service, reducing costs and increasing market share.
 CTPartners' approach is a combination of a disciplined methodology and strategic technology which enables them to build systems in about one quarter the time of traditional methods, thereby helping their client achieve a competitive advantage more quickly.
 According to Chris Greendale, vice president of sales and marketing, their integration service is best described as "fast, open results." He added, "We build major systems in a matter of weeks -- not months or years. This is a novel concept for most of the organizations we are working with." Honeywell, Hughes Aircraft, James River Corporation, Martin Marietta and BCBS of Rhode Island are just a few of their more recent clients.
 CTPartners' philosophy of total customer independence further differentiates them within the consulting/systems integration industry today. CTPartners even has an "empowerment" option at the end of project development which trains the customer on how to maintain and enhance the systems. Sims stated, "We want our customers to do business with us because they want to, not because they have to."
 Partnering with each client's business, technical and user executives during a project, CTPartners creates a unified team vision and builds consensus. This helps an organization embrace the change that accompanies any new computer system.
 Their bright future is reflected in the backlog of projects they have scheduled in the upcoming months. "Everyone is feeling upbeat about our growth and profitability. There is a huge market out there for us to capture. Even in these demanding times, CTPartners' ability to transcend traditional development time frames and work closely with our customers enables them to meet their full potential," said Robert Gett, executive vice president.
