Computer Power Solutions of Illinois (CPSI)
We were founded in 1990 with the idea that technology could be used to help students if it was easier to manage and use. Starting in hardware, we found our first niche in network management and created software that would make management of user accounts for networks easy.

From that point on, we devoted our company to finding ways to help education use data to help students every day.
