About Us

Since 1986, more than 250 Arizona organizations, large and small, have called on MSS Business Transformation Advisory (MSSBTA) to support their business, digital, and IT transformation initiatives.

 

As an Arizona-based management consulting firm, we have a vested interest in the long-term achievements of local businesses like yours. We are stakeholders in your success and look forward to delighting you with our services.

History

In 1986, Micon, Inc., was founded to provide technical services to businesses that were struggling to achieve their technology objectives because of knowledge gaps or lack of internal resources. In 1993, the name Micon was changed to Midrange Software Solutions, or MSS, as the company focused on delivering custom technology solutions to midrange or mid-market organizations. 

 

Today, the company is known as MSS Business Transformation Advisory or MSSBTA.  ‘MSS’ is a nod to our past and ‘Business Transformation Advisory’ is our vision for the future.  The success of our clients drives us to go beyond what is required, surpassing their expectations by delivering top-tier consulting that is affordable. 

Culture

At MSSBTA, we are collaborators, mentors, and cheerleaders working together to be better.  We’ve been recognized as an Arizona Top Company to Work for in 2019, 2020, 2021, 2022, and 2023.

Corporate Citizenship

Corporate citizenship is at the heart of MSSBTA. We give back to the community through pro bono work, fundraisers, and volunteering for organizations including St. Mary’s Food Bank, Valley of the Sun United Way, Ronald McDonald House, Peoria Fire Department, Feed My Starving Children, and Maricopa County Community College District among others.
