eSSETS is designed to let you make smart decisions with less labor and time. We believe faster decisions happen when you keep all the key stakeholders in the loop until a problem is resolved or a decision is made. When everyone knows what is going on and can easily provide input, the information you receive is better. We take pride in allowing our clients to see a clear picture and take action.
We bring collaboration and clarity to asset and facility management.
Our Mission & Values
At eSSETS, we built our product and our team on the belief that collaboration is central to success. What does this mean for you? For starters, our product will simplify collaboration with your staff and vendors. Our development and support teams also pride themselves on listening to the needs of clients and collaborating to find solutions. Through open communication we learn from various disciplines and are able to make software improvements that meet the needs of our diverse clients. We are on a mission to open up the silos of communication and tracking that exist within facility and asset management software today. We want to be part of your team and look forward to collaborating with you.
A Brief History
eSSETS was founded in 2010 by software industry veteran Paul Roberts, software engineering wiz Clint Brown, and joined shortly thereafter by software training and project management expert Naheel Cannefax. Paul's previous software ventures focused on service, inventory and accounting management. eSSETS was launched from a passion to help organizations improve the efficiency and effectiveness of operations with great software. From this passion and the complimentary talents of this core team, the company has grown to serve clients across the globe.
Meet the team
A very smart lady (my wife) told me that my favorite hobby is my work. She was right. I love my work, and my life's work has been assembling and leading teams to deliver and support great software to help organizations get stuff done. More specifically, I've been involved with service management, asset management and project management applications for decades. eSSETS is my outlet for putting those decades of knowledge and experience to work, with tender loving care, to help our customers solve real world problems.
I do sneak out occasionally for canoeing and camping on wilderness streams, and sometimes get out to the links to embarrass myself on the golf course. The latter activity just inspires me to get back to work, and with our great team, employ my skills more productively.
My brief career as an insurance agent, which allowed me to afford purchasing my first computer, opened up a world of opportunity. It turned out programming was my true passion. In early 1982, I founded Micro-Magic Systems. In 1986, I sold Micro-Magic to Agency Management Services, where I continued to serve for the next 10 years. In 2000, along with six other Micro-Magic employees, I cofounded Duck Creek Technologies. After growing it to over 350 employees, we were acquired by Accenture, a large public corporation. In 2014, after helping with Duck Creek’s transition, I retired as a full-time employee.
I now divide my time among a number of passions: traveling and spending time with my wife Linda, spending time with my three grown children, reading, playing guitar and singing, and running. I couldn't let my love for programming lay dormant forever. To remain in the software game, I have returned to the start-up world with eSSETS. I love using my skills to spur growth and write software!
Historically I was a content analyst and researcher of neural networks. I have utilized my business development expertise from working in industries like universities and web-based software application development companies to grow an asset database for eSSETS. I now work with our existing and new clients to quickly and easily build their asset portfolio in our software. I also oversee the training and software implementation process for the company.
My hobbies include research on artificial intelligence and using neural networks to train them, cooking, being a total foodie, reading, and traveling with my family. I watch and play golf and cricket and am an avid follower of the Pittsburg Steelers. My husband and four sons are all KC Chiefs fans, so you can imagine the rivalry in our house when we play each other!
I developed a passion for software development in high school, back in the day of punch cards. When I wasn't busy folding, spindling, or mutilating said cards - I was busy expanding my knowledge. My first programming project was writing a computerized version of the game Monopoly. Over time this moved into authoring websites. Despite the everchanging technologies over time, my one consistent goal was to become an expert while having lots of fun. I feel very fortunate to get to pursue my hobby as a career.
In my spare time I enjoy DIY projects at home, gardening, taking long walks with my sweetheart, and football season. Go KC Chiefs!
