More about us

In the mid-1980’s, IBM established a business relationship with smaller independent businesses to help them sell and promote IBM technologies. This business relationship was originally called the Marketing Assistance Program. The independent businesses in that program were known as MAPs. MAPSYS was founded as an IBM business partner. Our name comes from that original program. Since then, IBM has evolved the program into the Business Partner Program of today. MAPSYS has evolved as well. Our heritage has always been IBM technology. We have represented IBM Midrange servers since our inception. Today, MAPSYS represents and supports most of the IBM technology portfolio.

We made a strategic decision to be a technology partner to our customers and not just another vendor. As a result, we approach you from the perspective of your business and your business needs. Your needs drive product selection.

As your Technology Partner, we join you in making an investment in working together. You know your business, your direction, your opportunities, your needs. We know the technologies available, how to implement them, and enable you to support them with the least amount of effort. Together, we make a great team. But don’t just take our word for it. Take a moment to review the information on this page. We’re proud of our accomplishments and partners and prouder of our customer partners.
