An Extension of your I.T. Department
Every day, we are entrusted not only with our clients’ IT systems but with care for those with whom we interact, our community and environment.
We treat our clients and each other fairly, not taking advantage of others. We routinely advocate for our clients to ensure they are being treated fairly by our manufacturer partners.
Technology issues don’t only happen between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. We respond
to client issues around the clock to keep mission-critical systems running.
FOCUS ON VALUE
We excel in helping our clients to get the right solution for their needs, which often ends up saving them money and time. Our expertise and our commitment to get it right the first time keep our clients coming back to us.
At Volta, we want to earn your business for the long-term. We have maintained many of our client relationships for over a decade. Both sales and technical resources are as welcome in many of our clients’ data centers as if they were coworkers. When something goes wrong, our people are right there with you, even in the wee hours, until the problem is resolved.
WIDE VENDOR PORTFOLIO
Because of our strong client relationships we often have manufacturers requesting that we rep their solutions. We only take on new relationships when they are in the best interest of our clients.

- Like to keep up with new technologies but are careful about adopting them.
- Are willing to invest in quality I.T. for the growth and health of their organizations.

Volta calls to mind Alessandro Volta, 18th century Italian scientist and inventor of the battery. We admire his pioneering spirit and drive to understand energy, making discoveries about the properties of electricity upon which every technology we provide depends.
Volta is also is a literary term which refers to the turning point of a poem, especially a sonnet, in which the path to resolution begins. Thus Volta represents energy and agility but also a sense of history and stability in a time when many companies are at turning points in their relationships with technology.
Volta Inc. has its roots in DMD Data Systems, founded in 1996 by Dave Sevigny. After beginning his career as an engineer for IBM’s printer division in Lexington, Kentucky, he moved into IT sales. When IBM sold its printer operations Dave had the opportunity to start his own company as an IBM Business Partner. His core clients were Kentucky’s K-12 school districts, to which he was assigned in his IBM days.
In 2003 he started growing the business and expanding coverage into state and local government and higher education. In 2010, DMD Data Systems named the Small Business of the Year by Commerce Lexington, and Dave Sevigny was awarded the Small Business Person of the Year award for the state of Kentucky in 2011. The company had grown to 25 employees by 2016, its 20th anniversary year.
Midway through 2016, Marshall Butler became DMD Data Systems’ President, with Dave Sevigny in the role as Chief Operating Officer. DMD’s shareholders decided that it was time for the company to rebrand with a new identity which captures the spirit of the current technological age and its new leadership. In August of 2017, DMD Data Systems was reimagined and relaunched as Volta, Inc.
