Bob Sommer - Owner - Welcome!
Thank you for visiting our web site!

Cloud technology is opening up amazing opportunities for companies to innovate and compete across a number of dimensions. However, technical complexity has increased dramatically as companies seek solutions that span company boundaries while requiring assurance against security breaches and fraudulent transactions. Compounding this complexity are escalating regulations over financial reporting and consumer protection.

Over the past 15 years I’ve had a singular focus on delivering integrated software and consulting solutions to help customers drive cost savings, effectiveness, and better engagement across all the parties involved in key business processes. Since 2002, our OptiModel software has been ahead of the game in delivering compliance and risk management solutions for a broad range of publicly and privately held companies. The latest version, OptiModel 8.5, expands on our vision of delivering turn-key, industry-specific compliance and assurance solutions.

OptiModel is built from our proprietary software components which deliver robust security integrated across a variety of application features including document management, user interfaces, and workflows. We use these same components to build custom apps that enable our customers to deliver on their own visions – with substantially more value than traditional providers.

Whether your vision is to streamline your compliance department, move legacy applications to the cloud, or create new business models, you are bound to face numerous roadblocks. We would like to partner with you to achieve your vision using practical methods that help you bridge the technology gap and move forward confidently with your solution. If you are seeking a compliance management solution, our Compliance Roadmap will quickly get your compliance department established with OptiModel and related assurance services that meet the unique needs of your industry. For custom apps, our App Roadmap will guide your project from concept to finished product while accounting for key elements including security, controls, and technology platforms including the Cloud.

I look forward to hearing from you and discussing how we can help you address your unique needs!
Our Values
We pride ourselves on delivering great software applications and providing outstanding, relevant services. Our goal is to make our OptiModel subscription services the easiest to implement, simplest to use, and most comprehensive for the markets we serve.

We build trust with our customers by providing transparency – no hidden costs, no surprises, just clarity in our deliverables and a belief that our value stands on its own. We won’t recommend solutions that don’t deliver value, and are on the lookout for our clients to help them avoid common ways service providers pass on costs to their customers – with blended hourly rates, methodologies that are literally bound to binders and manual processes, and status-quo approaches to delivering services.

Things are changing for the better, you should expect more, and we look forward to delivering value for our customers in unique, exciting, cost saving ways.
“We relied on Essential Systems guidance and expertise and trusted their approach in helping us through a complex conversion requiring the automated generation of thousands of documents and years of data. We are glad we chose Essential Systems.”
