LeumTech was founded in 2012 by Scott Leum. Steve Firebaugh, a former Microsoft employee, and Mary White, a previous business partner of Scott's, joined the business soon after.
In 2020, LeumTech partnered with Vernon Communications to provide a variety of technology products and services to the community.
A separate company was started and Scott serves as general manager for this new venture.
In 2022, Leum Technologies, Inc. and Vernon Communications mutually agreed to merge Vernon Tech Center into LeumTech, as of March 31st.
In 2019, LeumTech began working with Vernon County to build a better timekeeping system.
The system was rolled out in phases, and is now actively used throughout the county, as a replacement for the aging TimeForce system that was previously in place.
In 2017, LeumTech began working with Running, Inc. to build a statewide dispatching and driver system.
The system was rolled out in stages across 350 employees, 21 locations, and 123 vehicles, beginning Jan. 1, 2018.
WordPress Design and Hosting
In 2014, Leum and Firebaugh would become majority owners in a local print shop called Proline Printing.
As sister companies, Proline Printing and LeumTech began offering mobile-friendly, low-cost websites to other local businesses.
Proline Printing was responsible for the graphics design and content of each website and LeumTech was responsible for hosting and support.
In 2021, Leum and Firebaugh sold their interest in Proline Printing and the website design and hosting was transferred to Vernon Tech Center, LLC.
The company's flagship product, LinkEdge, was initially designed as a Business-to-Business (B2B) network between retailers and wholesalers for the purpose of buying and selling products.
Originally called VendorLync, the product was designed to help small retailers and vendors to connect, buy, and sell products in a secure environment.
The system debuted in archery and LeumTech worked closely with Mathews, and later Kinsey's, to offer an archery-specific Point-Of-Sale and Inventory Management solution.
Later versions of LinkEdge offered additional features and benefits for many types of small businesses.
The software then morphed from a simple point-of-sale to a collection of tools and technologies for almost any small business, including bike shops, ski shops, firearms dealers, print shops, and contractors.
