Our Story

Seamless Data Systems has proudly served Emporia and the surrounding areas since 2001. It was founded by Jim Belford, who had a degree in electronics, experience in the telecom industry, and a passion for helping others fix their computer problems. He and his wife, Karen, started Seamless Data Systems with three employees in a small office in downtown Emporia. Since then, Seamless has grown to serve hundreds of customers across the Flint Hills.

Our Approach

Our slogan, "Computer solutions simply done right," is our core belief that you deserve computer services from a company that's ethical, knowledgeable, and friendly.

As co-founder of Seamless, Karen deftly manages HR to payroll and everything in between. She's our office cheerleader—if you catch her on a holiday, she's almost certain to be dressed for the occasion. In her free time, Karen loves gravel grinding in the Flint Hills, snow skiing, and volunteering.

Office Manager

Lori is our office manager and the first smiling face you see when you walk in our door. She's the "Service Ticket Master" (it's just as important as it sounds), so she keeps our engineers busy! When in doubt, Lori looks to her mother for advice—but if she's not available, the Magic 8-Ball always has an answer.
