DFC International is not your ordinary nerdy, incomprehensible, stuffy IT company. We are good, really good at what we do, as we are made up of human beings with enough life experiences to make us interesting, compassionate and competent to provide you with innovative solutions – not the usual cookie cutter, expensive solutions offered by the more traditional guys. We also have people that listen to YOU – not their sales manager forcing quotas upon them and thus you.
DFC International is familiar with this changing world. We opened our doors in 1989 and a lot has changed since then: 5.25 inch floppy disks were the storage option of choice, harddrives were sized in KB (Kilobytes) before evolving to MB, GB and now TB or Terabyte drives of today (Petabyte drives will be widely available soon) and monitors were big and bulky because of the cathode ray tubes that were used instead of todays LEDs. We are still in business because we have changed with the times. As a matter of fact, we embrace change! Originally D. Fitzerman Consultants, (named for the principles, David and Debbie Fitzerman – both are D. Fitzerman) changed to DFC International in the mid 1990s to reflect the evolution of the scope and reach of business. At around the same time the internet and the World Wide Web was starting to become interesting to business and DFC International secured the three letter dfc.com domain to take advantage of this new-fangled internet thing.
Back then we were even designing web pages, except we had to explain what a web page was to prospective clients! The internet became more useful and we started using it more, gaining more insight and experiences which we shared with our clients.
Fast forward to today, in the third decade of the 2000s where we have transformed, again for the umpteenth time where we have almost come full circle from our beginnings where service offerings have become front and center, again. Back in the late 80s and early 90s software and systems were complex and complicated – you needed someone with expertise and knowledge to just install simple software let alone network your computers together.
Of course, as time went on, all of that got easier and it was sufficient to have a neighborhood kid oversee your IT activities in his spare time. Then virus, malware and hacking came along and things started getting complicated again.
We look forward to sharing our experience with our clients to provide them with the best possible solutions for their individual situations!
