Robert Patt, Founder

Rob began his IT career in the prepress and graphics sector, managing purchasing, support, installation and operations for a provider of large format prints. During this time, Rob identified a need for hands-on IT-related services in the print industry, and founded Simple Mac Solutions in 1998 as a means of filling this need. Not long afterwards,Rob extended his reach beyond print companies and began servicing small to mid-size businesses in a variety of industries. Though his first few clients operated exclusively on Mac OS, he soon became proficient in Windows and Linux and began working with clients that utilized these platforms.

In the early 2000ʼs, Rob decided to expand into the related areas of web development, programming and design. Thus was born Webforce, a sister company that helped businesses leverage web technology with custom solutions for their online needs.

Today, Overlap Technology represents the integration of Simple Mac Solutions and Webforce, and the overlapping worlds of system platforms, online experience and onsite support. For Rob, Overlap is the end result of years of hard work, dedication and unwavering commitment
to his clients.
