Our company was formed in 1987 as a Computer Retail Outlet / VAR (Value Added Reseller) specializing in Ms-Dos. Computer systems/applications for end-users.
.

In 1990, it was decided a further microsoft was needed to meet a rapidly advancing, and competitive market, so the company entered the Xenix arena and chose to expand into both Unix and Xenix by 1991.
.

Since January of 1990 the staff of Bow River Networks Inc. have taken numerous SCO Factory Courses attaining much more than just Authorization and in fact have now advanced to the "SCO ACE level" (Advanced Certified Engineer) for SCO Unix Systems.
.

With our change in focus by 1994 it was decided to close the retail operation as virtually 100% of all clients were now corporate clients with very few general consumer clientele left, and since corporate clients very seldom came to the retail shop there was no point in having a retail operation. Thus by 1995 the company was totally devoted to corporate clients in the capacities of Computer Networking, and Consulting. We maintained both our industry and vendor relations keeping the positive aspects of our retail experience to continue benefiting our clients.
.

By 1996 we were on the internet full time with a high speed connection exceeding T1, and advancing very quickly in the Network Arena with two versions of Unix, Novell, and Windows NT, as well as the 95 operating system all under the same network. At this point we were able to fully develop the "Open Systems Concept" by having all the common entities under one network and were able to offer these solutions to our clients. We have continued in this direction ever since being able to cultivate both Unix and Microsoft clients at many different levels, and combinations.
.

In 1997 we expanded our scope developing a sound knowledge base in  Linux and other Open Source operating systems like FreeBSD. These Unix-Like operating systems are much like Xenix in size and scope fulfilling a similar role but often with an Internet orientation.
.

By late 1998/1999 we were receiving requests for Internet Site and WEB Page Development as an extension of our networking and consulting services with more and more of our customers requesting this service. In an effort to satisfy these service requests we created a small web development group that responds to such requests.

 

Consistent and never ending improvement in the knowledge and services we provide is key to our success , and something that we believe in.
.

Bow River Networks Inc. is devoted to its clients offering professional networking, and consulting services on many different platforms in both hardware and software. We feel we have a great deal to offer our clients as we can handle the total networking arena from network wiring, to computers, peripherals, software, consulting, web design, etc… , as we provide "The Total Networking Solution".
