Philadelphia Tech Firm Celebrates 20 Years in Business

July 1, 2022 (Philadelphia) – Chariot Solutions, a leading enterprise application and mobile development firm, celebrates 20 years in business on July 1, 2022. Chariot stands apart as a leader in its field, providing world-class technology in service to business.

It was 2002. Most businesses were paper-based. There were no smartphones or tablets. Fewer than 50% of Americans had dial-up internet access. There were about 39 million websites (today there are nearly 2 billion).

On the heels of a Y2K scare and 9/11, CEO Michael Rappaport and colleagues co-founded Chariot with three guiding principles: hiring discipline, project discipline, and considerable investment in professional development for employees. This trio of objectives has served to maintain Chariot’s competitive edge. For twenty years, Chariot has outpaced and outlasted the competition while delivering software solutions on time and under budget. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, only fifteen percent of businesses that started 20 years ago are still in operation today.

“Chariot is about quality over quantity, brand over growth, and happiness over wealth,” said Rappaport. While other companies have experienced mass resignations and pandemic challenges, Chariot enjoys a robust position in the marketplace. The company maintains a flat organizational structure, with a strong culture and commitment to mutual respect and caring. “Making money is important, but what’s more essential is openness, honesty and generosity,” said Rappaport.

Chariot’s consultants work for some of the biggest companies in the Delaware Valley, as well as with startups and nonprofits to create disruptive, future-focused technology. The company’s top-notch consultants have kept up with rapid changes in tech, offering expertise in cloud computing, data engineering, IoT, mobile, and training.

Along the way, Chariot has garnered many accolades, and has been rated a Top Workplace by The Philadelphia Inquirer four times including in 2022.
