Company Overview

It all started with a dream in 1992. Founder and President Paul Toomey, an English lad with a background in geographic information systems, decided to start a software business out of his two-bedroom apartment. His goal was to use his knowledge of mapping to assist job seekers in finding the areas with the most plentiful, highest quality jobs.

After a few years of development, the idea of mapping employment data caught the eye of workforce boards and spread like wildfire. Through a few initial partnerships, Paul quickly realized that there was a desperate need for a single system that would display current job listings, show real-time labor market statistics, manage employment services provided to individuals, and track the placement of job seekers. In light of this, Virtual OneStop – our flagship labor exchange and case management product - came to be in 1998.
