Company History

Boston application-specific computing solutions

Network Allies was founded in 2002 with Jim Reinhold as the principal founder and CEO. Jim and the co-founders of Network Allies were actively involved in the growth and success of many high-technology corporations over the prior 20 years, and cumulatively had over 100 years of experience in designing, manufacturing, and selling products for leading technology companies including: Apollo Computer, AT&T Bell Laboratories, Avid Technology, Computervision, Data General, Hewlett-Packard, Sun Microsystems, and Sycamore Networks.

The name "Network Allies" highlights two concepts the company founders believed were important to the success of these companies: Network (leading-edge computer technologies) and Allies (teamwork between employees, partners, and customers). The inward and outward arrows in our Logo symbolize the success that can be achieved through the winning relationships between employees, partners, and customers.

In April of 2012, Network Allies acquired Sherlock Systems, a custom computer design and contract manufacturing company based in Buffalo Grove, Illinois. Founded in 1985, Sherlock Systems has focused on the development of custom-built systems for specialized software applications with an emphasis in digital signage. The acquisition of Sherlock Systems establishes an important physical presence in the Midwest as well as positions Network Allies as a leader in the exploding digital signage market.

Network Allies has received the Pacesetters Award from the Boston Business Journal as the one of the region’s fastest-growing private companies in 2011, 2012 and 2013. Located in both the Boston and Chicago metropolitan areas, Network Allies provides application-specific computing solutions to companies across the globe.
