    in Technology

    Software – a set of instructions that make devices perform tasks. It sounds really simple. In reality, it’s likely not, unless of course, you wrote the program.

Spud Software was started in a basement in Grand Blanc, Michigan in 1997 and would catch the attention of the likes of General Motors and MSX International and, after completing several successful large scale projects, would develop a reputation for delivering high quality solutions at competitive prices. Almost 20 years later, Spud Software has worked with more than 200 clients and has established itself as a leader in the industry specializing in programming, database and software development. Join Melissa and Derek as they discuss the challenges Derek encountered as an entrepreneur in the software industry (his wife Gretchen is an entrepreneur, too!), learn about the variety of services Spud Software offers (SaaS, Project Scoping, Software Prototyping, Staff Augmentation, Tier 2 Support, Mobile Apps, Web Services and Custom Programming), and the talent necessary to make it all work.

    HRExaminer Radio: Adam Ochstein, Founder of StratEx

    in Business

    StratEx is a Chicago-based Employee Lifecycle Management company (ELCM) that has been in business since 2003. Its mission is to provide cost-effective HR solutions for small to mid-size businesses, and does this by automating administrative burden through the Employee Lifecycle, mitigating the risk of employee-related issues, and assisting in the management of the Employee Lifecycle. 

    Adam Ochstein founded StratEx after seeing a gap in the marketplace. At the time, payroll companies were happy slugging it out with each other and the leased employee space (PEO’s) served a nice niche for smaller companies. There was nobody who offered a SaaS solution that automated in a paper-free fashion for applicant tracking, onboarding, benefits administration, performance management, time and labor management and payroll. So Ochstein decided to build a platform that managed the entire employee lifecycle with one database. Since inception, Ochstein has led StratEx from a concept to one of the industry's elite Employment Lifecycle service companies focusing on the small and mid-sized business market. 

    Ochstein is a proven sales and management executive who has run both startup and large scale organizations in all aspects of technology for close to twenty years. Prior to StratEx, Adam held senior sales management positions with numerous technology startups.
