Word Pro Systems was founded in 1989 by Rhonda Lyons, the
Word Professor. Word Pro is located in the heart of
St. Louis, minutes from the world famous "The Hill" and Forest Park.
With its roots in software installation, training and support,
Rhonda found the market rich with opportunities.
Through the development of the "Train the Trainers"
programs, Word Professor was able to negotiate and secure
contracts with Fortune 500 Companies like Ralston Purina,
Blue Cross/Blue Shield, Sverdrup and many other companies.
By virtue of its clients' needs, Word Professor
expanded easily into the computer hardware supply and support
area of the industry. Within the first year of expansion,
one third of the company's sales were in hardware.
The demands for both hardware and software support were
so great that Word Professor met the challenge by expanding
and changing its name to Word Pro Systems.
In 1997, Word Pro acquired Service Technologies, Inc.,
headed by Kent Bergeland. With adding over 25 years
of experience and doubling the client base, Word Pro acquired
SMC Networking in 1998. This increased Word Pro's
ability to expand into networking sales and support.
Today Word Pro Systems is a total solutions provider.
With its expertise and success in networking, PC sales and
support, and installation, expansion now includes web hosting
and web design. Take a look at our Web Design section
and our Portfolio to see the type of work we can do for
Word Pro Systems is now able to procure, integrate, and
support the full range of computer hardware, software, and
Internet technology offered by today's market.
