Rafael Arboleda, President of Compulink Technologies, Inc. recently celebrated his companyâ€™s 10th anniversary as a certified business.
After forming Compulink in 1987, what finally made him decide to get certified? â€œI had a number of other companies asking me why I wasnâ€™t yet certified, and telling me how great it was for their business.â€ Ten years later, Arboledaâ€™s happy he made the move. â€œAt the time, the IT industry was pretty saturated with a number of different companies.
Certification really opened new doors for me to break through and grow my business â€" without using up our limited resources.â€
Since becoming certified, Compulink
has won a number of contracts ranging from $2,500 with the Sanitation Department to $1.3 million with the MTA. â€œCompulink started with only $3,000 and an idea, and is now a $5 million company,â€ explains Arboleda
, who credits much of his
success to smart, dedicated business practice, and his
MBE certification. â€œSBS has opened the door for us to step up to the plate and stand out as one of the best in the industry.
