Big things often have small beginnings; that was the guiding principle and passion of Mr. Raj Mehta. After earning two undergraduate degrees from India, in the 1980’s he came to the United States with a dream to study and work hard. Mr. Mehta earned a Computer Science degree from the University of Maryland and soon enough, with his passion and skill, he started his journey by working for the aerospace giant Grumman Data Systems. Later he became a very accomplished consultant for the Grumman Data Systems Corporation. After working there for a few years, his childhood vision struck, which was to change the world in the tiniest form in order to make society a better place by finding ethical solutions to the challenges in life.
Mr. Mehta decided to take a calculated risk by leaving his secure and well-paying job at Grumman in 1986 to fulfill his vision. Mr. Mehta founded Infosys International, now known as Raj Technologies Inc. (RTI), and began his triumphal journey with anticipation and courage in his heart. He was confident in his brave endeavors where his passion and morals guided him through the uncertainty of the business world. The company was operated from one of the bedrooms in Mr. Mehta’s home where he started with a single computer and two floppy discs with 64k memory in the early stages. Some of the beginning challenges Mr. Mehta encountered were managing cash flow and hiring secretaries who lasted two hours to two weeks, and restarting the process again.
Honest hard work with high integrity became the cornerstones of RTI.
RTI’s business proliferated, with a firm footing in New York. RTI quickly became a full-fledged IT Consulting, Staffing Services and Systems Integration firm with an excellent reputation in the markets we serve.
In 1999 RTI took possession of a 14,000-square-foot office building in Plainview, New York. Our Headquarters is the center for LISTnet's initiative of building an Information Technology Incubation Center. This unique and cozy co-working space for new IT companies to work in symbiosis is named the "Digital Ballpark." This is a joint project of LISTnet and RTI. Mr. Mehta offers mentorship to 19+ small startup tech companies.
RTI was named “The Fastest Growing Company” on Long Island for two years in a row, included in Inc. 500, as “one of the 500 fastest growing privately held companies in America,” RTI’s biggest achievement was when in our starting years we secured a BASIC ordering agreement (BOA) with the US Airforce.
For almost 4 decades RTI has a track record of successfully delivering projects and services to Fortune 500 companies, local, state, city and federal government agencies, major utilities and educational institutions and non-profit organizations.
RTI has a proven track record from Mainframe to Client/Server to now Cloud implementation & migration, and Cyber Security services on multiple platforms such as Microsoft, Oracle, PeopleSoft, Infor, Maximo, ServiceNow, Salesforce and others. Accepting challenges with a “can do” attitude, RTI delivered solutions once committed.
RTI has held and maintained Minority Business Enterprise (MBE) and a Disadvantaged Business Enterprise (DBE) certifications over the years as well as contracting vehicles in government agencies including Federal GSA, NYS PBITS, MTA All Agency Contract and more.
