InfoTech is a leading software developer and systems integrator exclusively utilizing a U.S.-based labor force without any offshoring of project work outside the United States.

The engagement encompasses infrastructure relocation and consolidation, merging three GMI infrastructure locations (San Diego, CA, Portland, ME and New York, NY) into InfoTech's data center in downtown Manhattan. InfoTech is also responsible for software development for GMI's web-based research platforms and rating systems. Infrastructure relocation and consolidation has already been completed.

Shauna Morrison, COO of GMI Ratings, stated: "InfoTech has already had a major positive impact on our business. It has accelerated the implementation of new product features and improved the overall performance of our Web-based research platforms. We value InfoTech's expertise, responsiveness and dedication."

Mr. Matti Kon, InfoTech's President and CEO added, "We are glad and thankful for the opportunity given to us to add a company like GMI to InfoTech's growing portfolio of IT outsourcing clients. GMI is joining the trend of many other companies that recognize that in order to succeed in today's competitive environment, it is imperative to focus and concentrate all their energy on their core competencies and leave IT management (both programming and infrastructure) to companies like InfoTech who specialize in the business."
