Chattanooga, Tenn., -- InfoSystems sponsored the homeschool robotics team, Team P.U.N., in the FIRST LEGO League competition the first weekend in December.
Team P.U.N. placed 5th in combined runs and 9th in highest scoring runs, out of 28 teams, to advance to the next level of the State Robotics Competition. The next round will take place February 11 at Tennessee Technical University in Cookeville, Tenn.
This was the second year Team P.U.N., which stands for Persnickety Undercover Nerds, have competed in the FIRST LEGO League robotics competition. The team did incredibly well this year considering they were missing one team member due to sickness.
This is just one of many ways InfoSystems is staying involved and giving back to the communities that make up its regional customer base.
InfoSystems began in 1994 as a regional office products firm under CEO Clay Hales. In 2000, Hales transformed his company by becoming an IBM business partner offering enterprise infrastructure and software in a burgeoning market. InfoSystems was founded on investments in IBM technical skills that by today's standards are exceptionally rare. Named on CRN's Solution Provider 500 list and on CRN's Tech Elite 250 list multiple times, Hales prefers the accolades of his loyal customers. And in 2015 the company saw record growth and record sales, further validating its popularity in the marketplace. The company's boutique size, coupled with its enterprise capabilities, make it the perfect partner for companies who need InfoSystems to be an extension of their technology team.
