From The Buffalo News: Biel’s Information Technology Systems will celebrate its 75th anniversary in business this year – putting it among the oldest document management businesses in the country.
The West Seneca-based company has evolved through numerous incarnations as technology has evolved. It began as micro-photography lab in 1939, then it made a successful foray into microfilm reproduction in the 1950s, transforming in the ’60s into a copy machine dealer, then moved on to computer–assisted microfilm in the ’70s. By the 2000s, it was deep into the document scanning and management software operations.
Today Biel’s has undergone yet another transformation as it provides automated invoice, human resources and cloud solutions to companies and organizations like the Buffalo Bills, Delaware North and Catholic Health. Borden Milk, Kodak and Psigen are among its national clients. The company now sells software and provides services that electronically manage accounts payable and other documents.
