Yet all of these efforts still didn’t meet Scott’s ideals. He was increasingly frustrated with the applications and services offered to higher education by large and detached companies. He knew there had to be a better way. It was time to give shape to his personal vision.
Scott and business partner, Sam Ottenhoff, created Longsight in 2001 to fill the need for high quality support, customization and hosting services. Up to that time, these were things many software market leaders had failed to deliver. But Scott and Sam knew that with the advent of open source software, these services would prove extremely important.
“I’m committed to keeping “open” at the core of our business. We do great work, so of course we want our clients to benefit from the skills and experience we have here at Longsight. You can count on us to under-promise and over-deliver. And we’ll always respect our clients’ choices.” – Scott Siddall
