About

Virtual Systems has evolved as a group of problem solvers, who believe in leaving the world better than we found it. While our first priority is creating a new standard for delivering great technology, we stand for more than that. We’re a community of fun-loving, socially responsible people (employees, partners, customers, neighbors) who hope to challenge businesses around the globe to use their resources and make a positive impact on their community locally—and at large.

Our Mission

There are just two components to our mission: technology and service. Every decision we make is filtered through our mission to deliver excellence in both areas.

Our Values

Peter Drucker, one of the best-known thinkers and authors on the topic of management theory, believed an organization’s culture is the most important ingredient to its success. He popularized the idea that “culture eats strategy for breakfast”—and we buy into that 100 percent.

Virtual Systems has five cultural values. We believe these values balance our “corporate agenda” with a little room for personal interpretation. That’s why we don’t describe our values, we just list them and ask our employees to write their own descriptions. Check out the values that drive our mission, along with popular quotes from folks you may know.
