In 2018, Computers Unlimited, developers of TIMS Software, celebrated its 40th Anniversary. Co-founded by Dr. Mike Schaer in 1978, today, David Schaer is the President of Computers Unlimited. He oversees the software application divisions for three distinct industries. The company is staffed by approximately 180 employees.
Computers Unlimited began by serving a local industrial gas and welding company that needed an integrated software solution to help their business run smoother. Under Mike Schaers’ guidance, software developers were tasked with creating a product to answer a growing need for this industry. In the early 1980s, the company expanded into the home medical equipment (HME) industry when a customer needed new functionality to process medical claims and track medical oxygen. In 2002, the company acquired a local software company to serve the needs of the audiology and speech, language & pathology industries.
Computers Unlimited prides itself on listening to the needs of its customers. David shares this thought, “The new frontier is about connected and open systems. We are achieving this by making TIMS mobile and the TIMS platform open. The world has gone mobile and so has TIMS.”
David added, “Our latest developments are a reflection of our DNA—our people make it happen. I’m very proud that many of our staff members are long-term, which is something you don’t see too often in today’s business climate. We all share the same vision, to meet the ever-changing needs of our users.”
