Like most of the Greater Omaha Chamber’s Small Businesses of the Month, March winner Apex Informatics doesn’t intend to be small forever.

“We are planning to go global in the future,” said CEO Jay Tedla.

Founded in 2012, Apex Informatics is an Omaha-based, owner-operated and “customer-intimate” IT staffing firm that offers consulting, contracting and recruitment services to leading companies.

“Our dedication to providing personalized service and identifying top-notch talent through our rigorous qualification process has earned us the reputation as the best IT services provider in the region,” Tedla said. “We continue to expand our business geographically while we maintain that personalized approach that has worked so well since our inception.”

Apex Informatics, Tedla said, is known for its ability to recruit high caliber IT consultants for a full range of IT disciplines, including application development, project management, business analysis and infrastructure support.

“We work hard to ensure that every placement is right for the candidate and the client,” he said. “We take the time to understand your needs, expectations and goals, whether you’re searching for a motivated employee or a challenging new job.”

When identifying and selecting candidates, Apex Informatics conducts a comprehensive, time-tested assessment process.

“We recognize that every position is different, and we look for not only the most qualified applicant but the best fit for each client’s culture. We listen to and consult our clients on which points to focus on. This saves our clients time and makes the decision-making process smoother,” Tedla shared.

In its early years, Apex Informatics carved out a niche in PeopleSoft application development, training and mentoring – and has grown into the number one IT consulting firm in Nebraska specializing in PeopleSoft consulting. (California-based Oracle Corp. develops, markets and supports a complete line of PeopleSoft business applications for financials, supply chain management, real estate management, and staffing.)

“That strength remains today, but we are so much more,” Tedla said.

Every Apex Informatics consultant has more than 10 years of experience in his or her specialization, and “they’re not afraid to roll up their sleeves and take personal responsibility for getting the job done.”

He continued, “Regardless if you are a senior executive or a junior team member, we believe everyone has a voice that needs to be nurtured, not criticized, in order to continue bringing innovative ideas forward.”

Tedla said his employees are as diverse as the companies with which Apex Informatics works.

“This broad spectrum of experiences, languages, cultures and ideas allows us to bring a fresh eye and an open mind to any sort of business we work with.”

At the core of the company, he said, is a commitment to uncompromised business ethics and the very highest standards of professionalism, fairness and honesty. The company foundation also includes a focus on community involvement. In addition to encouraging employees to donate their time, the company donates a portion of net profits to a variety of causes and categories, including children and youth, social services, public health, and arts and culture.

Involvement extends to active use of the company’s Chamber membership, which Tedla said has led to increased visibility, credibility and networking opportunities.

“The membership offers us numerous benefits and keeps us on top of important, ever-changing issues and trends within the community and local marketplace.”
