What is the history and background of Infinite Technologies?
Prior to founding Infinite Technologies I was involved in telecommunications for Ilitch Holdings Inc. and I noticed that there were not many smaller companies in the industry, and I wanted to change that. I launched Infinite Technologies to focus on supporting small- to medium-sized companies in a variety of technology facets. I wanted to provide technology counsel from conception to implementation to installation, taking our clients through that process in its entirety, and provide ongoing support going forward.
The company was founded with the belief that a highly skilled staff and strong leadership is the cornerstone of success. Infinite Technologies believes when technology is applied effectively, and with the customer’s business in mind, it helps the customer worry less about the solutions and more about their core business.
What are some of Infinite Technologies notable clients?
We work with a lot of health care organizations including DMC and Arcadia Healthcare. We also work with Charles H. Wright Museum and Covenant House of Michigan.
In 2007, we worked on Second Ebenezer Church $25M facility and were instrumental in designing, creating and supporting the church’s security systems, computer network/support and telephone services.
The services we provide to each client vary. Sometimes it’s a combination of our offerings and other times it is one isolated service. In most cases the uniqueness of what we do is that we’re an all-in-one service provider.
What is Infinite Technologies culture?
Although we’re smaller we’ve always been heavy into experience and many of our employees have 15 to 25 years’ industry experience. We value working with smaller companies; our expertise makes Infinite Technologies uniquely qualified
We work hard and go above and beyond for our clients, including 24/7 support. My staff prides itself on being diligent and customer-focused.
In fact, a majority of the Infinite Technologies staff are Detroiters, and many are veterans. We’ll continue to hire Detroiters and veterans and be an important resource here in the city.
Why did Infinite Technologies select Detroit as its headquarters?
I was born and raised here; I’m a product of Detroit public schools. I attended Michigan State University and I’ve worked in Detroit for over two decades. I wanted to build a company here in the city and support Detroit through thick and thin. As a Detroiter I’m delighted to have a business here and I also want to help other small Detroit-based companies.
What companies have you collaborated with in Detroit?
I’m affiliated with the Goldman Sachs 10000 Small Business, Detroit, so I have the opportunity to collaborate with many Detroit business. Infinite Technologies works with many community-based companies as well as larger commercial companies here in the city. We’re also a part of the Michigan Minority Supplier Development Council which provides a lot of opportunities as well. Lastly, we’re a part of D2D, which does a phenomenal job connecting Detroit businesses with one another.
What are the benefits of connecting with other Detroit businesses?
As a longstanding Detroit business it’s very fulfilling to grow with other companies and help each other out. It’s been an amazing experience to be a part of Detroit’s comeback alongside my mentors like SEEL, LLC and other local companies. We’re been an integral part of the city’s success when we (Detroit businesses) work together.
