Issue 0 – Ed Oldfield’s story
Ed Oldfield is a programmer specializing in the SHIMS application on MultiValue. Ed’s been working with the SHIMS customer group for over 30 years providing support and enhancements to the application.
Customers are looking for more and more from their SHIMS system these days. I’ve made a lot of enhancements to the application over the years and I’m going to share those with you in my bi-weekly blog. But first, a little about me and my journey to Zumasys.
I began in the computer business in 1980 at a Clifton NJ company that developed a software package for the automotive aftermarket. A wild time in a brand-new industry with all the growth headaches you can imagine.
In 1985 I took what I learned there to The Ultimate Corp where I was employee #1 on the project to adapt SHIMS to work in the automotive aftermarket. I worked on the design changes required, sold the initial systems, and helped with the installation and support of those systems. Over time I changed from sales and marketing to software development, where I have worked since.
In 1990, I started EAO Computing which provided mods and support to SHIMS and AutoSHIMS systems.
In 2021, I came to work for Zumasys.
