About Us

Then and Now...

Information Proficiency was born from consulting services in 2000, trading as an independent contractor until 2008 when Information Proficiency was registered expanding to focus on broader Records and Information Management services with founders Lisa Read White and Alex White. Sigma Data started out focusing on Content Manager installation, support and add-on products in 1994 with founder Chris Stokes. Information Proficiency and Sigma Data were two dominant providers in their own right - in 2013 we combined under the Proficiency Group which strengthened and broadened our offerings in the Information Management Space.
