"Web Enabling the World of Business" has been more than a tagline to me in starting up this business. We have delivered on it as our passion to enable SMB to automate processes, expand markets, build accountable information systems, innovate, and gain the edge over their competitors. Along with that tagline, we often found ourselves saying, "If you can imagine it, we can do it". There has been no limitation to what I and our team could accomplish.

The CGI Pro Work Order System allows us to work collabortively with our clients and contractors, tracking all hours, projects, tasks, alerts and billing under one custom designed interface. Ask for a demo and how it can elevate the efficiency of your project during development as well as through maintenance and versioning. RE: CGI Productions... Although we have had up to 10 contracted professionals at a time working within our ranks since 1996, I have become the sole face of CGIPro.com since early 2009. The economy had a dramatic project stopping effect on our biggest clients as well as my invested startup endeavors. The good news here is the new era for CGI Productions in 2010 is flexible. New projects have my direct focus and expertise, without the dilution of delegating tasks that require true experience to others.
