History

Since 1962, VTG has evolved to provide and protect the IT solutions you need to prosper.

A History Rooted in Ohio

In 1962, Virtual Technologies Group (VTG) started as Conventional and Research Data Systems, Inc., also known as CARDS Incorporated. We started out in Elida, Ohio and expanded to Toledo one year later. Our original services included bank processing, data entry, payroll management, and printing report cards for local schools, banks, and businesses such as Pierce Construction, Midas Muffler, and Willis Day. The variety of industries we serve continues to this day.

In 1981, CARDS Inc., with several other companies, including Office World and Assured Issuance Incorporated were put together, marked a shift to the computer and office supply industries, and took the name Office World, Inc. Our ability to adapt to industry changes accounts for our continued success as well as that of our clients, and adaptability remains at the core of VTG’s business mindset.

In 2006, Office World partnered with Toledo-based Virtual PCs and became the Virtual Technologies Group we are today. Since then, VTG has continued to acquire and worked with complementary companies like Accolade Solutions Group in 2008 as well as with competitors like JCI Group in 2016. The success of our merger with Accolade Solutions Group resulted in the spin-off of our nationally recognized Comm-Core, LLC division. This move expanded our telecommunication solutions to include Hosted Video Surveillance and Security among other services.

Since 1962, our success has been rooted in Ohio’s growth. We are proud to be able to serve the entire Northwest Ohio region while remaining deeply rooted in the Lima and Toledo communities. For over 55 years, we’ve optimized our clients’ business performance by developing partnership-driven, long-term relationships to best understand their workplace needs and goals.
