Who We Are

Our Story

ORI started as Office Remedies, Inc. in 1988, with co-founders Kathleen Benson and Susan Lynd completing data entry at Kathy’s kitchen table. Over the next few years, Kathy and Sue built a flexible workforce, established business alliances and strategic partnerships to add important skills and technologies, and gained experience through larger 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.

Today ORI brings together industry-leading technologies and services that span the data analytics supply chain—from integration to advanced analytics—all within a secure governed environment. For more than 30 years, ORI has improved clients’ access to data and enhanced their ability to drive decisions. ORI is proud to be a certified women-owned small business (WOSB).
