Simply Integrated
The earth shook the day that Chris Allison founded his company. Literally. It was September 11, 2001. Allison was only driven harder to find and create better ways to integrate real-time information exchange. The result has been a fast-growing company recognized in the Inc. 5000 and the Charlotte Fast 50 that designs, builds and deploys custom applications for its clients allowing users to manage real-time data, remain compliant with government regulations, and implement new technologies with minimal expense.

Building Longevity
Father/son team of John and Matt Williams say they create a team environment where all the important players—owner, architect, engineer and builder—are at the table from the onset of the project, investigating every option and providing real-time cost data, giving the owner more control over what’s going into the project, so they can prioritize where their dollars are spent.

“Being in the company of birds is really a transformation of understanding,” says David Krol.

Milk & Eggs To Go
Swiss Farms drive-thru stores stock the grocery items most frequently needed by busy families—milk, bread, eggs, beverages, and packaged deli items. A sales associate greets the customer at their car, takes the order, collects the items, and handles payment.
