Company founder Jim Smith – an engineer and pharmacist – laid the groundwork for what would become Smith Data Processing (SDP) and eventually QS/1 Governmental Solutions. In 1959, Smith Data Processing began assisting local government agencies with everything from payroll to property tax notices, and after many years of growth, became a separate business unit of the J M Smith Corporation.
