Founded in 1980, Business Automation Associates focuses the selection and use of computers for medium-sized and larger firms. Because Business Automation does not sell computer equipment or software and does not accept finders' fees or commissions from those that do, it can work objectively to help clients find and install cost-effective computer systems in the shortest reasonable period of time.
Business Automation also assists clients whose present computer systems are less than satisfactory. Although each situation is unique, the Firm works to establish a series of corrective actions to resolve the outstanding computer problems. Care is taken to ensure a smooth transition to a more effective system and to minimize costs. In situations where a resolution is impossible, Business Automation provides expert assistance to the litigator in the areas of case preparation, settlement negotiations and, when necessary, courtroom testimony.
