About Heartland Business Systems
The HBS roots date back to the late 1980s, with Peter Helander creating label software for the grocery and meat packing industries at Alferi Communications. Demand for the company’s software and technology expertise led to Alferi Communications being rebranded as Heartland Business Systems and acquired by Peter Helander in 1994. Introduce the proliferation of the World Wide Web and technology, HBS grew in tandem. In 2004, the company added a division focused on custom programming, website development, business intelligence, and mobile development. In subsequent years, HBS has enjoyed continued growth and success helping our clients reach their full potential. HBS has grown from a single office in Northeast Wisconsin to ten locations throughout the Midwest, but our personalized service and commitment to our clients remains the same.
