About Our Company
What We Believe
We help our customers do more and empower their people through efficiency-enhancing technology.
We will make companies with distributed workforces more productive, competitive and successful through transformative technology.
We work together to accomplish the day-to-day and the longer-term goals through belief in three core values:
1. Keep customers first.
We challenge ourselves to begin and end each day with a customer-focused action. As people-centric people, we’re committed to developing long-term relationships and excellent customer experiences. We listen closely to customer needs to deliver solutions that increase efficiency and profit. Their success is our success.
2. Be accountable.
We hold each other accountable to do what we say we’re going to do. And we expect each other to “bring it” every day. We believe in offering each other our respect, honesty, collaboration and hard work. But above all, we trust each other to do the right thing because it’s the right thing to do.
3. Do more.
We changed the game in 1988 with an all-in-one financial, operations and workforce management solution. We did it again in 2001, offering software as a service before “the cloud” was common. And with our next-generation workforce management solution, we’re pushing our legacy forward with a relentless pursuit to define what’s next.
In the early 1980s, a building service and security company was hunting for integrated business management software to help organize operations, streamline accounting processes and provide profitability insight. They couldn’t find a solution, so they put together a team to build their own. Six years later, the team had developed a prototype for what is now WinTeam. This unique solution quickly proved it could be a difference maker, not just for themselves but for other contractors. That’s when TEAM Software formed in 1989, to provide this breakthrough software solution to the rest of industry.
