What has fueled your company’s growth?
“Over the past five years, ClearPath has grown through a combination of organic growth and key, targeted acquisitions. Our 2015 acquisition of CremerTech has been hugely successful as we continue to integrate our two cultures, processes and of course, people. Over the years, other acquisitions added important talent to our team and additional solutions that our customers now view as indispensable.
To successfully grow, we have fostered a sales-based culture, combined with an intense focus on integrated solutions and customer satisfaction. There is a strategic advantage in linking many of the technologies we represent. Customers find that bringing ClearPath in at the planning phase of a project results in better outcomes. This helps us foster long-term relationships with many clients.
Today, the relatively strong economic conditions in our market are allowing companies to invest resources back into facilities and growth.”
What is the biggest obstacle to your company’s growth?
“Talent sourcing—finding high-quality, skilled individuals with character to join our team.”
Do you plan to make any changes to your company?
“The entire ClearPath team constantly reviews new technologies and solutions that fit into our portfolio of how we help our customers. We regularly review our complete mix of benefits for our team to make sure that we are offering not just a great place to work, but a great company to work for. Finally, we continue to look for and consider acquisitions of companies that will complement our portfolio of products and services.”
What is your company’s most important growth strategy?
“Our goal is much like that of our customers: utilize today’s rapidly changing technology, from both the administrative and customer-facing perspectives, to understand and follow best practices in everything we do.
Finally, infuse all that we do with the golden rule, knowing that treating our customers, co-workers and suppliers as we would like to be treated makes ClearPath a better company and citizen.”
