About

Smart. Simple. Progressive.

Our roots
Cilio Technologies, formerly IT Directions and Strategies (ITDS), was founded in 2001 by Randy Olejnik, who has spent his career in information technology for manufacturing and supply chain. After many years of experience with enterprise resource planning (ERP) systems, project management systems and supply chain systems for the manufacturing sector, Randy noticed an area of the business that was not addressed by these solutions.

He saw that building materials order management was very manual and confusing for installed sales products – products such as countertops, doors, windows, floors, decks, and any other product for homes or businesses that may need to be fabricated and that have to be professionally installed. A complicated network of manufacturers, distributors, installers, fabricators, and dealers may be involved in fulfilling orders for installed products, which only adds to the complexity. Existing building materials software and order management systems didn’t quite solve this problem

Riding the cloud
With the evolution of software as a service (SaaS) and cloud technologies, Randy saw an opportunity to simplify this very complicated problem. He built a web-based platform for building materials order management. The Cilio Partners Portal, not only simplifies the flow of order information throughout this complex supply chain, but it also helps manufacturers and retailers cut costs, grow their businesses, and manage partner networks.

Ongoing innovation
As Randy and his Cilio team continue to work with clients on their order distribution and management solutions, they continue to improve and evolve the Cilio Partners Portal to meet new and changing needs of its users. They are constantly looking at the way clients communicate and interact with their partners, and within their organizations, to find new and innovative ways to simplify this business process and help clients improve their bottom line.
