Mission and Vision

History

Since 1993 Ford Computing Services has been providing IT and Project Management services to residential and small business customers. FCS was founded in March 1993. At that time it focused on assisting residential clients with installing new personal computers. As time progressed, this became easier for people to do on their own. Computers started shipping mostly assembled and most of the wires are now color coded. Using the same organizational skills native to the Information Science and Technology professions, FCS began assisting groups and its first commercial clients with organizing small to medium events, organizing their inventories, and expanded into web services. Always evaluating what clients need, FCS expanded next into diagnostic reporting, system updates, and anti-viral installations for its residential clients. Now with the need for a framework around projects for businesses, FCS has added Project Management to the skill sets it can deliver to clients. Project Management is a profession that puts a framework around projects that helps to bring them to a successful conclusion. In fiscally challenging times, this becomes extremely important.
