About Us

Collabsion? How did this come about? 

Many years ago we were sitting around the office trying to come up with a new name for the business. At the time, the focus of the business was Lotus Notes consulting. Lotus Notes was a “collaboration” tool for business. Alex had a strong “vision” for how Notes could change a business for the better.  Hence, Collaboration + Vision or COLLAB+SION was born.

Although the business focus has changed (we no longer do Lotus Notes work), we stuck with the name because finding a domain name these days is very tough, or extremely expensive (we missed out on a great investment in the mid-1990’s – buying up domain names!). Besides, it still fits – our focus is more on wireless technology, which drives collaboration in many businesses.
