RYCOR Grows with its Customers
The story of how RYCOR came to be has to start back to the turn of this century. Ryan Kerr, a 97-lb Grade 9 student at Argyle Secondary School in North Vancouver, had a problem: he didn’t like going to school. But he has a strong passion for Computer Science and he was dearly loved by his teachers. With the help of his mentor, he managed to attend classes and even submit a computer science project, that will change his life forever.
That computer science project was a software program created to help Argyle Secondary School staff collect fees and donations. The software was so helpful that two neighboring schools bought the program and the rest was history.
