This is the tale of two companies, Piñon PC and Enterprise Computing Systems, and two people, Heather and Brady Burke, who have combined to create a synergy where the whole is greater than the parts.

Heather started her Piñon PC business in 1995, and Brady founded ECS in 1999. They each bring more than 30 years experience in the computer and network industry to the table.

They merged their two enterprises in 2008 to become an LLC, which now employs 8 people, and they have recently added medical billing to their portfolio of services.

Heather and Brady moved from their home based offices into the LA Small Business Center in February of 2010, but then grew rapidly in both services and employees. They provide information technology consulting, hardware and software sales and support for homes, businesses and medical/dental practices primarily on Windows and Mac platforms, and other operating systems through their partners.

Never content to rest on their laurels, Brady, Heather and staff continue becoming certified, and can now offer authorized service with several companies., most prominently Microsoft, Apple, Fujitsu, Toshiba and Dell.

The next step for this growing company has been to move to a larger space at 3491 Trinity, Suite D. They have more than twice the space and easier parking and access than they had in the Small Business Center.

Keep an eye out for the giant scissors at the Open House on November 17.
