Who We Are


Paragon Consulting Services, Inc. was incorporated in June of 1996.  Initially we offered software development and EDI services for what is now the IBM I and Windows based systems. Our goal then, as it is now, was to bring together the best IT talent available and provide our customers the greatest possible value.  Since then our list of IT services  and other offerings have grown substantially.


EDI expertise is and always has been woven through the fabric of our company.  In 2000 Paragon implemented our outsourced EDI service, further enhancing our EDI offering.  Our B2B Services division has grown rapidly due to extraordinary customer satisfaction.


In 2002, Paragon purchased Metalware, a company specializing in software for metal service centers and toll processors.  Now known as our Metals Software Division, we have enhanced and developed new products producing a suite of software for virtually any size company in the metals industry.


Since 1996, Paragon has grown to have three separate divisions of products and services. Our divisions work stand-alone and in combination with each other to provide exceptional, sole source IT service.
