Computer Support Services, also known as RPL & Co. at that time, was incorporated in 1978. In 1980, the company established itself as a service-oriented company in 1980 under new owners, Delmar R. Ritter and David L. Cornelius. With sales reaching $2.4 million, the company added a third owner, Thomas A. Erickson, in 1989.[9]

The company acquired Quality Data Products of Williamsport, Pennsylvania from David Franklin in 1993.

In 1997, CSSI became a reseller of Great Plains Software and, as of 2012, continues as a Microsoft Silver Certified Partner and a reseller of Microsoft Dynamics GP.[10] In 2011, the company opened a subsidiary, CSSI Global Technologies, to sell the company's flagship product, CoreIntegrator, worldwide.[11]
