It was this growth that prompted the move to downtown, to a larger building that will house a central open work-space where RPM employees can monitor all of their clients’ systems. According to Mark Fricker, Vice President of RPM, “the space is going to be command central. We will have the ability to monitor all of our clients’ systems twenty-four hours a day, 365 days a year. The goal is to give them peace of mind knowing their systems are constantly being looked after.”
But the new space will be more than just a work environment. Although renovating the building, RPM has plans to keep some of the original architecture in place. They want to open this space up to local businesses for technology meetings, social gatherings and small business IT help seminars. “Indianapolis has been a great place for Mark and me,” says Chris Prader, President of RPM. “We both raised families as well as built our business here. We want to give back to the community. The goal is not just to relocate, but to become a part of the downtown business culture.”
Both Prader and Fricker agree that the future still looks promising for RPM Technologies. They expect to land a couple of new clients in 2013 and, if so, hire some new IT consultants to their staff. But for now, the focus is on the big move to downtown later this year.
