Who is VistaVu?
A note from our Founder and CEO, Jory Lamb
To appreciate who we are it is important to appreciate where we came from.
Starting from very modest beginnings, we began on the rural roads of Alberta Canada, in 1996, with a clear purpose to help small and mid size companies find operational efficiency and managerial effectiveness through the use of technology.
Those early days of working with the people of rural Alberta taught me a lot about what matters and what doesn’t to our customers. More importantly, it taught me a lot about the kind of business leader I wanted to be and the type of people I wanted on the VistaVu team.
Fast forward 21 years later, we have grown to provide mission critical solutions to some of the largest global players in multiple industries (Aerospace and Defense, Life Sciences, Industrial Field Services, Industrial Machinery & Components, Food & Beverage and High Tech). During this period, we have never lost our commitment to help the small business owner or the appreciation of the economic and social importance of the people in rural North America.
Over that same period, we have gathered a technically excellent team of kind people of which many have become owners of VistaVu. People who succeed at VistaVu, I believe are the same type of people that you want to work with. They are resourceful, they are driven, they are intelligent and they genuinely care, like I do, about the success of our customers. While we are most certainly not perfect, we are constantly striving to be a long-term partner with our clients and bring outstanding value and service every day. If we make a mistake, our people will be the first to stand up, own it and make it right.
Your success is our success and is measured by customers that say their businesses truly RUN GREAT as a result of working with us.
