DATROSE, a minority and veteran-owned business, was founded in 1976 by William W. Rose and originally offered data entry and data processing services to Fortune 1000 companies. Xerox and IBM were DATROSE’s first clients and remain clients today. The company was started with 6 employees in a small office in Webster, New York.
From the beginning, Rose had more in mind for DATROSE than keypunch work and he knew that in order to grow the company he needed additional working capital. In 1977, Rose received an SBA-guaranteed loan for $42,500. The loan was used to purchase supplies and equipment to expand the business.
Today, DATROSE has successfully expanded its offerings to provide Staffing Services, Accounts Payable Automation, Contact Center Outsourcing Solutions, and Document Management Services. DATROSE is also a Xerox Preferred Partner and authorized reseller for laser printer cartridges. The company employs more than 600 people including many of the first employees hired in 1976. With office locations throughout the United States, DATROSE currently has employees working in more than 28 states.
