HISTORY

ProAct Datastor Corp., and its associates have provided a broad range of computer consulting skills and technical services to their clients since 1990.

The key success is our ability to perform as a central outsourcing agency, providing clients with the specific technical expertise that they require on an "as needed" basis.

As an outsourcing agent, we assist our clients in reducing the largest cost component of their information system installations... the acquisition, training, and maintenance of technical personnel.

ProAct Clients are able to keep their organizations current with evolving technologies. The need for large investments in training and personnel overheads are significantly reduced.

As an adjunct to outsourcing, we position clients to take advantage of constantly evolving open systems, and ensure that their investments in equipment and software are amortized over the longest possible period through our abilities as systems integrators.

In order to fulfill these obligations, we must know our Clients' business and its processes. We must assist in maximizing their "Information Assets," and we must complement their Information Systems departments by extending their capabilities without expanding their operating budgets.

This approach has kept us financially and technically competitive. We have enjoyed average annual revenue growth of 38% since 1990.

The Future

Follwoing twelve months of intensive research into the field of enterprise data management, disaster planning, and disaster recovery, we established a strategic alliance with InfoSure™, a business unit within the British Columbia Systems Corporation (BCSC).

InfoSure's mandate is to make a broad range of computer and computer related services available, initially to the public and private sectors, through Distributor Agreements, the first of which was signed by Datastor on September 14, 1994.

Our first joint offering with InfoSure is a fully automated, remote data backup, recovery, and archiving service utilizing InfoSure's technology and province-wide network, and a world class, post disaster security facility.

This service was piloted at the Ministry of Social Services, the Ministry of Finance, The Richmond Hospital, and the New Home Warranty Program of B.& Yukon. Production roll out began on November 1, 1994.

We are understandably excited with, and proud of our involvement in this project.
