Heartland Business Systems provides technology solutions to corporate, healthcare, education, government and not-for-profit organizations.

In 1998 Heartland moved into its present location in Little Chute, WI. In 2000 a 10,000 square foot addition was added to the 23,000 square foot facility. In 2004 Heartland not only added another 10,000 square feet in Little Chute, but also opened a location in Milwaukee, WI and established Avastone Technologies, the programming division that provides custom programming, web site design, Microsoft Dynamics and SharePoint implementation, search engine optimization and other related services. Heartland completed another 16,000 square foot addition in June of 2007 at the Little Chute location which provided 5,000 square feet of office space and 11,000 square feet in the manufacturing area.
In 2010 Heartland purchased a neighboring property and in spring 2012 completed the connection of the two buildings to create 100,200 square feet of office and manufacturing space in Little Chute. Heartland also opened an office in Lisle, IL.
Heartland entered the south central Wisconsin region in early 2013 with the opening of their Madison, WI office.
Heartland employs more than 400 people with Avastone employing another 50 people.
