Dale Callow established Callow & Company in the mid 1980’s with the creation of a complete DOS based manufacturing system application. Working with networks on LanTastic, Novell, and later, the complete Microsoft versions of network operating systems, he continued to consult and program custom applications for a variety of industries, including the Home Health Medical field with a complete Medicare approved admitting and billing application. He envisioned a need to expand, and he did.
In the early 1990’s Callow & Company began consulting with Local Labor Unions that had been using a custom software application. Due to the growing needs of our clients, we developed the first of our Fund Administrator™ brand of products. This allowed for the development of applications that track and calculate medical eligibility and claim adjudication as well as pension calculations and statements.
Since then we have developed a Labor Union dues collection application, which includes the automation of out of work lists, meeting and voting listings. More recently a Union Apprenticeship tracking and training application package has been developed for our clients.
Currently, we are developing an HVAC application to plan, estimate, dispatch, invoice, and track accounts receivable, and accounts payable for the Air Conditioning and Heating businesses.
At the inception of the internet, Callow & Co. envisioned the advertising dollars its clients, primarily small businesses, could save on yellow page or newspaper ads. Our vision took some education and a lot of encouragement, and, we initially met with resistance from many of our clients. However, Dale Callow knew the impact the internet would have in the future, and he devoted the talent and staff needed to develop web hosting and web site design. As home computers for consumers migrated from a luxury to a necessity, Callow & Co. was positioned to offer its clients a premier package that includes web hosting and web site design at an affordable price.
While Mr. Callow’s passion is custom application design and web site design, he has listened to his clients and understands that a frustration of any small business is “being caught between the software guy and the hardware guy.” Therefore, he has a staff available to troubleshoot and make recommendations on any needed upgrades. If you choose Callow & Co. to develop or upgrade your custom software, prior to installation, you will have a free of charge, written assessment of current hardware, and a recommendation (including the cost) for upgrades. If there is a conflict with the hardware you currently have running a software application designed by another firm, and his firm has upgraded your hardware to meet their specifications, his technicians will work with the other vendor to resolve. His philosophy is that any conflict should be transparent to his clients.
Finally, being a small business man himself, Mr. Callow understands that with most of his clients, profitability margins are narrow. Therefore, he and his staff will work with you to ensure that the money you spend is, as the saying goes, “money well spent.” We would be glad to hear from you.
