"We're in this business to make people happy."
— Jim Belford, president

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.

Seamless has an office in Emporia and opened a second office in Lawrence in 2010.

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.

She's currently pursuing degrees in both theatre and accounting at Emporia State (you go, girl)! Corrine is a self-described Weirdo—so in other words, she fits in perfectly here.
