OSI Celebrates its 25-year Anniversary, Continues Global Expansion as the OT Market Leader

Open Systems International, Inc. (OSI), a world leader in utility automation and operations technology (OT), celebrates its 25th year of business in May, 2017.

"We would like to thank all our clients we've had the pleasure of serving over the past 25 years. It's been an honor for us to form such long-term partnerships and friendships, and we are proud to have been able to serve them with the highest levels of service, innovation, and support. We're looking forward to continuing to serve the utility industry worldwide in the next 25 years and beyond," said OSI's co-founder and president/CEO, Bahman Hoveida.

OSI was founded in 1992 with a simple vision: to create an extraordinary software and services company with customer service and innovation as its fundamental cornerstones. From its humble beginning of four employees, OSI has grown to a staff of nearly 600 employees, with sales in more than 27 countries and a customer roster of nearly 400 companies. As an American company and one of the last bastions of U.S. technology in the field of OT, OSI develops all of its technology exclusively in the United States using a U.S.-based workforce, with no outsourcing or off-shoring of components. From a cyber security and support perspective, this gives utility customers the best peace of mind for the management of their critical assets and our nation's critical electric infrastructure.

"We have been extremely lucky right-guessing utility industry trends and the IT landscape as it went through transformational changes in the past 15 years, and we have been able to realign our technology and organization to serve customers otherwise ill-served by the industry. We clearly see ourselves as a customer service business first, and as a software and technology business second. This philosophy, along with a talented and dedicated workforce, has been the key to our success," Hoveida said.

As of three years ago, OSI has surpassed all its competitors in sales, number of customers, and growth rate while maintaining an unmatched customer satisfaction rating nearing 100 percent.
