IT Consulting Firm ENTAP Honored as an Indiana Company to Watch

ENTAP Inc., an IT consulting and outsourcing firm specializing in business application integration and enterprise resource planning (ERP) solutions, has been recognized as one of the 2009 Indiana Companies to Watch. This annual awards program celebrates 50 privately held, second-stage Indiana companies recognized as thriving in their industries through exceptional entrepreneurial leadership while also exhibiting the intent and capacity to sustain long-term growth.

ENTAP’s strategy for being recognized as an IT industry leader is to put only the most qualified enterprise business application and ERP integration consultants in front of its clients. The company’s success is due to its deep and broad talent pool including a senior leader recruited from a large IT consulting firm and a team of seasoned technology experts. Founded in 2004 by President and CEO Tracy E. Barnes, ENTAP has grown from one to 20 employees and continues to prove itself as an emerging IT solutions firm boasting at least 100 percent year over year revenue growth.

“ENTAP delivers large IT consulting firm experience, expertise and methodology combined with a small business approach that gives our clients the expert attention, proactive support and strategic results they demand,” says Barnes. The firm has many notable clients in the government, education, commercial, financial and public sectors including the State of Indiana, Finish Line, University of Maryland System, Blue Cross Blue Shield and Future Farmers of America.

ENTAP will be honored during the 2009 Indiana Companies to Watch awards program to be held on August 27 in Indianapolis. For more information call 317-634-9523 or visit
