Learn how we got started and what makes us unique.
Tim Yoder, the current President and CIO, formed a technology consulting company in 1993. He originally focused on Microsoft Access database development for small businesses in the community.
In 1998, after meeting fellow Goshen College business professor Russ Rupp, Tim and Russ combined their IT management experience in the automotive industry with accounting management experience in the RV and public accounting industries. Together, they began working on various projects under the business name of Custom Business Solutions, Inc. It soon became quite clear that their combination of experience, coupled with teaching and training skills, filled a market niche in this community.
It was also Goshen College which led Tim and Russ through the “four-year interview process” to find their third partner, Ryan Britsch, COO, who joined the company in 2003. Ryan brought experience in IT management and manufacturing systems. His addition added stability to the company’s day-to-day operations and project management, allowing the company to continue its growth.
In 2001, the business name was changed to Solution Source to represent the focus of the company: providing effective solutions to businesses looking to solve their technology pain points. The focus was not just on developing custom solutions, but on creating personalized solutions. Learning the goals and objectives of the client, then choosing a software solution that fit their needs, became the business model for Solution Source.
Solution Source continues to be a growing company of business professionals who are highly invested in client success.
