Company Founder

HAMi was founded in 1997 by Michael. He had over 30 years of experience in the sales and software business. With his vision and overall strategy, the company took broad steps toward “Software as a Service” (SaaS) based web applications. The “PaperTracer” application, which is founded on SQL database simplicity, provides true value to the end customers and assist in the automation of their business processes allowing them to achieve significant productivity enhancements.

Michael built a successful medical equipment sales company that led him to realize the need for a web based software to manage hospital equipment and their contracts. The development of this software led to the creation of the PaperTracer Business Process Management (BPM) product that was successfully transitioned to the SaaS business model in 2001.

Michael’s expertise led the company through development transitions of cloud computing as well as expanding use and features of this product for multiple verticals like healthcare, education, attorney/CPA offices, and government offices.
