Co-Founders Ahmad Gramian and Michael Sabourian established CorpInfo at the inception of the client-server era, providing a cost-effective alternative to mainframe computing.
CorpInfo establishes itself as an early leader in networking and systems design. “We understood the potential that networked personal computers had to revolutionize workplace productivity,” Michael Sabourian, President of CorpInfo said. “But, corporations needed partners to help understand and select the right technologies for their environment. We wanted to be that partner and trusted advisor to our clients.”
CorpInfo begins partnering with larger clientele running complex UNIX-based environments.
Foreseeing the transition from fax to email, CorpInfo becomes an industry-leading pioneer in email solutions.

CorpInfo invests $1M to create an in-house high-level technology lab to pre-test customer solutions, demonstrate proof-of-concept, and act as beta site for manufacturing solutions. CorpInfo was one of the first firms to recognize the value of several innovative technologies and was selected to participate in many beta programs, including testing for HP MC/ServiceGuard in our Advanced Technology Lab.
As client-server architecture became more prevalent, there was an increased need for support services to maintain these systems. CorpInfo builds a technical team with advanced technical expertise, certifications, and customer service skills. To this end, we implemented a comprehensive training program that involved engineers, sales, and operations personnel. Highlights of this program included the establishment of CISU, an in-house university with two full-time Microsoft Certified Trainers. The training was so well received, that several of our enterprise clients requested training for their in-house support staff. CorpInfo also creates the Exchange Migration Toolkit for Microsoft’s Platform Toolkit CD which was distributed by Microsoft to entire its sales force and all 12,500 Microsoft Certified Partners.
CorpInfo is named Microsoft Southern California Partner of the Year by Bill Gates, Microsoft Chairman and CEO. CorpInfo was selected because of our long-term valued partnership and the leadership role we held in delivering innovative business solutions through the use of Microsoft technologies.
