Bentonville, AR – Kitestring Technical Services, a leading software engineering firm, proudly announces the celebration of its 25th anniversary, marking a significant milestone in the company’s history.

Celebrating 25 Years of Kitestring Technical Services

The company’s journey has been one of continuous growth and transformation, characterized by an unwavering commitment to excellence and a passion for innovation. Larry Smith, an ardent technology enthusiast, laid the groundwork for the company’s success with his pioneering work designing a groundbreaking Point of Sale system. This breakthrough led to collaborations with industry giants such as Walmart, IBM, and NCR, setting the stage for the company’s future expansion and influence.

In 2012, the reins were passed to Jared Smith, son of the founder, who assumed the role of CEO, leading the company into a new era of rapid expansion. At that time, the company comprised a modest team of 15 employees, which has since grown exponentially, reflecting the company’s dedication to fostering talent and nurturing a dynamic work culture.

With a rebranding in 2018, the company adopted the name Kitestring Technical Services, marking a significant turning point, propelling the company to new heights of success and recognition in the industry. The simplified brand name quickly gained traction, resonating with clients and employees alike, paving the way for continued growth and increased market presence. Today, Kitestring remains focused on retail technology, with deep practical experience in POS, payment systems, e-commerce, pharmacy systems, and loss prevention.

“Our employees are the heart of our organization, and their unwavering commitment and expertise have been instrumental in our sustained growth and success over the past 25 years,” stated Jared Smith, CEO of Kitestring Technical Services. “We take immense pride in our unique business model that prioritizes our employees’ well-being and allows us to provide unparalleled services to our esteemed clients.”
