EC Group History


The Enterprise Consulting Group is a privately held company that was formerly the Enterprise Consulting (EC) division of Technology Applications Inc. (TAI). Founded in 1992, TAI had two key directions, an ISP billing software organization and a High-End IT Infrastructure solutions organization complete with key VAR relationships with leading hardware and software technology providers.

For 5 years, the EC division provided IT Infrastructure solutions and support to TAI’s ISP billing customers as well as a growing number of St. Louis corporations. As an integral component of TAI’s success, the EC division’s growth helped the company achieve a number one position in St. Louis’ coveted Technology Fast 50 Award in 1997. This award, presented by the RCGA and Deloitte & Touche, signified TAI’s commitment to excellence and leading edge approach to IT. It took just 4 short years for the company to attract more than 140 employees and establish a customer base which included Bell Atlantic, Maritz, Enterprise Rent-a-Car and Telecom New Zealand to name a few.

In early 1998, it was decided that the ISP billing software side of TAI should be separated from the EC division. This strategy would allow investors to focus on the core values and directions of each organization as separate entities. Thus, on March 1, 1998, the Enterprise Consulting division of TAI became a stand-alone company known as the Enterprise Consulting Group.

Since those early days, Enterprise Consulting Group, backed by local investors, has quadrupled in size and has grown its St. Louis customer base to over 500. Capitalizing on the foundation strategy of “infrastructure-only”, their focus is sharper and more finely tuned than ever.
