Strandware Founder Establishes Consulting Firm
Eau Claire, WI - Mike Strand, founder of StrandWare Inc., has established a business consulting firm called MikeStrand.com. The new venture, located in Eau Claire, provides services to companies in the technology, manufacturing, services and distribution industries.
To promote his new company, Strand is offering services at cost to a limited number of clients through March 17, 2003. Charging only out-of-pocket expenses, the package will include a business overview, specific action recommendations, and a roadmap for implementation.
With a software development background at Cray Research, Strand founded Strandware Inc. in 1988. The bar code labeling and asset tracking software company built a customer base of over 150,000 before being acquired by Brady Corporation of Milwaukee in 2001.
"I was fortunate enough to grow StrandWare into a well-respected, multi-million dollar software company with a worldwide reputation and international offices," said Strand. "Through the years we developed over 27 popular software titles for businesses. Now, I want to pass on the favor of those who helped me by sharing some of my experience with bright, motivated entrepreneurs who will benefit from my successful strategies and learn from some of my mistakes."
