High Order Solutions (HOS) www.highordersolutions.com, a Frisco-based IT/IS and Project Management consulting firm that helps veterans get civilian and government jobs, announced today it is opening a new headquarters and training center in Frisco. HOS has leased the top floor of 5566 Main Street, at the northeast corner of the Tollway and Main Street, in World Cup Plaza. HOS will officially open its doors on Veterans Day, November 11, 2016.
As a Navy veteran and a Counter-IED Bomb Tech in Iraq with four deployments under his belt, Frisco resident Thomas Lamson took the leadership skills he learned in the field and started HOS.
“We’re helping vets by hiring vets and training vets,” said Lamson. “Most veterans just want to work. They appreciate everyone's support but at the end of the day they would rather have a job than a handout.”
Lamson said veterans leave the military with excellent jobs skills like discipline, the ability to meet deadlines, attention to detail. “It translates into a great work ethic in IT consulting. In return, veterans are receiving a consistent income in a growing industry with rewarding work.”
HOS focuses on IT and Information Services consulting, contracting, development and training. They’ve helped organizations like Johns Hopkins University, Oracle, and even a local luxury retailer save time and money by streamlining information and processes. Whether it is by creating a centralized information repository, Agile Project Management consulting or recommending and training staff on the best collaboration tools, they consistently save their clients at least 10 percent annually. And, sticking to their core beliefs, have helped veterans get jobs along the way.
“We’re adding a wide-range of new training classes, many are free for veterans, and we’re partnering with local organizations to promote hiring veterans in IT,” said Lamson. “We take pride in offering the highest caliber of services and at the same time supporting our consultants, most of whom are former active military from all branches of the Department of Defense.”
HOS is also involved in the EOD Warrior Foundation (EODWF), a non-profit that serves the EOD (Explosive Ordnance Device) community by providing financial assistance and support to active-duty and veteran wounded, injured or ill EOD warriors, families of our wounded and fallen EOD warriors.
