        Imperial Ornamental Metal (IOM) fabricates structural framework, handrails, stairs, custom-made architectural aluminum and stainless steel products. A complete technology overhaul was seen as a necessary step for future growth. The company replaced 10-year old white box hardware and software—Microsoft Windows 98 and Office 97—with Windows Vista and Office 2007 Professional. The dramatic change is streamlining the way IOM does business.
