About ORI

Our Story

ORI started as Office Remedies, Inc. in 1988, with co-founders Kathleen Benson and Susan Lynd doing data entry at Kathy’s kitchen table. Since then, Kathy and Sue built an agile research and data processing business with a flexible workforce, established business alliances and strategic partnerships to add important skills and technologies, and gained experience through large commercial and government contracts. ORI’s growth has resulted from successful collaboration and relentless innovation, always seeking to offer clients additional value through enhanced services and resources.
