Gordon-Darby’s senior staff members have never failed in successfully implementing a variety of information technology projects and are highly experienced in working toward a common goal of on time, best-of-breed, problem-free project implementations.
We write our own software for the systems we deploy. This ensures that our technical staff fully understands the software and can quickly modify it to address a particular need or implement a desired upgrade.
Our facilities have allowed us to take a leading research and development role in the vehicle inspection technology industry. This has included working directly with the U.S. EPA and its contractors in investigating a wide range of vehicle testing/information technology and operational issues.
