Bridgeworks LLC was founded May, 1986 under the name Paul Bratland Consulting by Paul Bratland. Since the beginning, our mission has been to provide our clients with professional information technology services.
We typically serve small to medium sized organizations in the Southcentral Wisconsin region. The average small to medium sized organization has limited information technology resources available to them. Normally there is little or no on staff IT professionals and our goal is to provide these businesses with access to professional information technology services when and how they need them.
In the mid to late 1980's our primary focus was helping clients install and configure computer based accounting and business management solutions. During this time we also began focusing on the emerging PC based graphical user interface technologies being pioneered by Microsoft. We also began helping our clients design and deploy networking systems.
In the mid 1990's we expanded our service offerings to include custom solutions based on the Microsoft Office business productivity suit of applications. We also began integrating Internet services into our clients existing systems introducing them to the World Wide Web and Internet E-Mail. Around this time we also began aggressively deploying mobile solutions based on notebook PC technology.
In 1997 we continued to expand our range of services by introducing smaller companies to the power of client / server computing. This included integrated group collaboration, e-mail, and fax server systems and more powerful database technologies.
From 1998 to 2000 we expanded our services to include Y2K readiness, digital photography solutions and scanning / document imaging solutions. This time period also ushered in our working with clients to adopt and deploy Personal Digital Assistants (PDA's).
In 2000 and 2001 we began helping clients plan for and deploy broadband Internet Access technologies such as DSL, Cable Modem, and Satellite systems.
In 2002 we Changed our name to Bridgeworks LLC and added a broad array of wireless networking and connectivity devices.
All during our history we have continued to help our clients through the constantly shifting landscape of information technology solutions. We look forward to continuing our quest of keeping our clients in the know on what technologies are best suited for their organizations.
