Founded in 1983, the company provides IT consulting for software and hardware business solutions from some of the biggest names in the industry. The company has been a trusted IBM business partner since its inception. It has also become a Microsoft and Infor Solution Partner, as well as a Dell and Cisco reseller.

We’re proud that we have evolved with the technology to remain a valuable asset to our clients, said Colburn Q. Kent, one of the company’s four owners. His partners are Tom Conroy, Lisa Heberling and Shelley Harkins. Our professionals can help any business maximize its technology investment by taking time to understand the goals as well as the current IT infrastructure, said Kent. Knowing those, we can create a secure, robust solution that will help a business become more efficient, and remain so for years to come.

Founded as Computer Management Associates, the company focused initially on providing business application programming to distribution and manufacturing companies in the Lehigh Valley. As the first PCs started appearing on the market in the late 1980s, Computer Management added “Marketing” to its name, to reflect its evolving role. Today, the company delivers a variety of products and services to a wide range of businesses in northeastern Pennsylvania and New Jersey. The company’s experienced IT specialists plan and design networks with careful consideration of each client’s servers, storage space, application needs and performance demands. New products include business intelligence software designed to complement an ERP product from Infor, called APlus.

While it continues to help clients maximize their investments, the company also is focused on protecting them. Companies of all sizes face a growing threat from malware, viruses and spam attacks that can hinder productivity and cost money to repair. To protect clients, Computer Management & Marketing Associates is incorporating a more secure defense against hackers in all of its solutions, and educating customers on best practices.
