“We cannot solve our problems with the same thinking that created them.”

Albert Einstein

Welcome to the Forefront Systems Inc. website.

Forefront Systems was created in the spring of 1995 to deliver forward thinking solutions to businesses and various provincial government organizations in British Columbia Canada. It was, and still is, based on the conviction that computer software is created on the shoulders of giants and that the evolution of technology in general and computer system in particular are a nonlinear chaotic processes that moves society forward in both productive and counter productive ways. The trick of course is that at the end of the day our efforts have moved us forward more than back.

Our goal was, and still is, to create leading edge software that puts to use the amazing technologies of the 21st century yet stays rooted in the time-tested foundations of computer systems and technological development. Solutions that respect a person’s right to privacy as the products we deliver entertain and inform.

“When nature flourishes humanity flourishes.”

Doug Farmer, Forefront Systems

We also have a rather sharp environmental ‘edge’ and strive to create applications and technological solutions that recognize humanties roll as a ‘keystone’ species. One that through action and inaction has had and continues a have a great impact on our home planet and as such we are a species that also bears a great responsibility. “Do no evil.” as Google used to say in their code of conduct.

“Bernard of Chartres used to compare us to dwarfs perched on the shoulders of giants. He pointed out that we see more and farther than our predecessors, not because we have keener vision or greater height, but because we are lifted up and borne aloft on their gigantic stature.”

John of salisbary, 1159 CE
