Our story began in Birmingham UK in 1896 when business partners Oliver Moreland and Francis Impey formed a printing company. In 1904, when in the USA on business, Moreland saw a revolutionary new form of loose-leaf binder in Kalamazoo, Michigan; he brought the idea back to the UK and named the company after the town.
By the early 1960s, having built a very successful forms printing business, Kalamazoo then created a computer bureau to handle customer accounts for Ford UK. The company then began developing its own software designed exclusively for the retail motor trade.
In 1970 Universal Computer Systems (UCS) from Houston, Texas began life as a regional data processing service bureau providing local dealerships with weekly reports of their parts inventory.
During the 1980s, UCS began supplying computer hardware, software, forms, software support, and hardware maintenance to customers in the USA. In 2001, Kalamazoo was acquired by UCS. In 2006, following the merger of UCS and Reynolds and Reynolds, Kalamazoo-UCS became Reynolds and Reynolds.
