Our Company History


Originally founded as RPW Systems & Services in 1979 as a result of a merger between a technical services company and a computer technology provider.

RPW originally designed, developed, implemented and sold one of the first automated pay/bill systems for the staffing industry. Some of our clients included Kelly, Robert Half, Adecco and Volt. A front-office "search" system later followed in 1987 and has evolved into one of the most comprehensive search engines for the management of applicants, skills, clients and recruiter reporting.

The products and personnel became StaffVision Services Inc. in 2001 and have remained as one of the longest-running suppliers to the recruiting industry today.
