Our History

Our Company History


4CTechnologies is a Pittsburgh-based business consulting and software engineering firm specializing in IT-based business innovation, application development, and application integration. Formerly an e-services business unit of IKON known as Sysinct, we have been in business since 1986, managing successful long-term relationships with our clients.

history_4cOur name was developed in part from the 4C’s that define our beliefs and guide the way we do business: Clients, Communication, Core, and Commitment. We are supported by solid financial performance, time-tested methodologies, and partnerships with recognizable industry leaders, including IBM, Microsoft, and Esri. Our company has helped organizations of all sizes to gain competitive advantage through strategic planning, process improvement consulting, custom application development, and systems integration.

history_designIn 2006, 4CDesignWorks became the interactive marketing and communications division, largely in response to client demand. This boutique group has the experience to manage all — or a portion of — your marketing and communications initiatives. 4CDesignWorks’ approach to marketing success at any company involves four distinct disciplines: Planning, Identity, Interactive, and Marketing. This fully integrated division provides practical design solutions to enable companies to elevate performance and growth.

history_geoIn 2009, GIS services became a part of 4CTechnologies’ growing suite of professional service offerings, providing support to a global client base. GIS stands for Geographic Information Systems — a well-respected and widely-accepted technology that is used to view and analyze data from a geographic perspective. 4CGeoWorks utilizes maps and information management tools to show relationships, patterns, and trends to help companies make smart decisions about the growth or downsizing of their business – critical information that could help direct key decisions such as store closings, expansion opportunities, and customer service.

As an independent and growing business, we are constantly diversifying our offerings and our strategic partnerships, acquiring experience and proficiency in varied cutting-edge technologies — branching out when it makes sense to respond to market demands.  Our strong and diverse background in technology, design, marketing and GIS makes us the perfect consultants to assist your business as it stands today and to sustain it well into the changing future.
