Musketeer Group, Inc. (MGI) provides custom programming services to companies with applications developed in either Micro Focus Cobol or the Qantel QicBasic® programming languages.

HP-UX®, IBM AIX®, Novell and Qantel Best® AOS hardware/operating systems are supported.

What sets MGI apart from other software companies and contract programmers? Experience.

MGI is led by Steven J. Fehr.  Mr. Fehr has been involved in system design and programming of RIMS QicLink® 1.0, 1.5, 2.nn and 3.10.nn applications for over seventeen years.  He has also held the positions of President and Director of Operations at two different TPAs.  This business experience gives him an understanding of the client's needs that the typical software developer or custom programmer can't provide.  Experience that is used to direct the programmers responsible for writing the client's code.

MGI avoids the "That's what I asked for, but not what I wanted" syndrome that is typical of custom software by working closely with operations and marketing personnel to design applications that achieve the client's true goal.

MGI has developed a wide range of software products to satisfy a TPA's internal and external reporting requirements.  These include data extracts and imports, managed care reporting, productivity measurement and improvement tools, and many others.

If you are looking for quality, timely and cost effective custom programming services for your QicLink® installation, give us a call.
