Our Enlightened Brands and Products Through the Years
Like many technology companies, LLumin, founded by Ed Garibian in 2004, has evolved over the decades as business needs have changed – changing its name along the way.
Today, LLumin, with their Computerized Maintenance Management Software (CMMS) product suites, READYTrak and READYAsset, provides asset performance management, operations support and materials tracking solutions for many of the world’s leading companies and organizations. The suite of products use the actual state of the machine to help organizations optimize uptime, keep companies safe and makes sure they are compliant. Llumin offers a full suite of SaaS and software modules aimed at the asset management, materials tracking and risk management needs of manufacturing businesses, municipalities, universities and other industries.
LLumin – 2018
Ed’s success with eRPortal Software’s highly scalable Asset Management and Materials Tracking solutions led to growth, but also innovation and the drive to develop a unique position in the worldwide industrial and intelligent machine market place. The company had long since redirected its software development efforts entirely into the Enterprise CMMS industry and then realized it was time to reconsider its moniker. The company landed on the name LLumin in recognition of the capabilities its software provides regarding full transparency and visibility into the operations of its customers.
eRPortal Software Inc. – 2004
In an ever-growing tech world, eRPortal Software Incorporated was formed in 2004. It had become apparent that in order to give the software business effective market visibility, a separate identity would need to be established. In addition, the decision was made to move away from the ERP software market segment and focus solely on the MRO and Manitenance Management software market. Thus, eRPortal Software’s focus shifted from primarily local customers to national, enterprise level customers looking for sophisticated work order and materials tracking functionality.
Product Category Expansion – 2000s
Over ten years of success for Applied PC Systems did not satisfy Ed’s need to push the technology envelope even more. In early 2000, Ed expanded his company’s capabilities and product offerings with the acquisition of a small ERP software products company, increasing and scaling the company’s product offering. ERP software was making hard charges in technology advancement at both small and large business organizations. And these powerful systems were off-the-shelf solutions that required tailoring and tweaking to each individual organizations’ environment, something that Applied PC had done so well for years.
Applied PC Systems – 1989
In the summer of 1989, founder Ed Garibian, formed an information technology start-up known as Applied PC Systems, a two-time Inc. 500 award winner. Applied PC Systems was a Microsoft Gold Solution provider and re-seller, focused on networking, document management, and messaging solutions powered by Microsoft’s SQL Server DB and Microsoft’s Windows Operating System. Many of New England’s largest and most prestigious law firms were client’s of Applied PC.
