YJT Solutions Receives National Certification As Women Business Enterprise





CHICAGO, Jan. 8, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- YJT Solutions, a leading, Chicago based, provider of Information Technology (IT) consulting and managed services, received national certification as a Women's Business Enterprise by the Women's Business Development Center – Chicago, a regional certifying partner of the Women's Business Enterprise National Council ( WBENC).  

WBENC's national standard of certification (implemented by the WBDC) is a meticulous process that includes an in-depth review of the business and an on-site inspection. The certification process is designed to confirm the business is at least 51% owned, operated and controlled by a woman or women.  The Women's Business Enterprise National Council is the nation's largest third party certifier of businesses owned and operated by women in the United States.  They are a resource for the more than 700 US companies and government agencies that rely on WBENC's certification as an integral part of their supplier diversity programs.  By including women-owned businesses among their vendors, corporations and government agencies demonstrate their commitment to fostering diversity and the continued development of their supplier/vendor diversity programs.

"While we've been a women owned business since I founded YJT back in 2001, it is still such a feeling of achievement to have the official WBE recognition," said CEO and owner, Linda Maclachlan.  "It is an honor to join the ranks of such a prestigious organization which boasts an incredibly diverse membership base that spans all across the United States; we're excited to be certified!"

YJT Solutions is a Chicago-based provider of IT consulting and managed services to companies in a variety of industries that depend on technology.  The firm was founded more than a decade ago to help build the IT infrastructure of some of the most demanding and unforgiving companies in the world: Chicago futures and options trading firms. YJT helped these firms transition into the world of electronic trading and more recently has helped them scale to meet the extremely low latency and big storage demands of high-frequency trading. In recent years YJT has expanded in both scope and reach, bringing that same Chicago toughness to help companies in a variety of industries. YJT works to help companies accelerate profits, lower fixed costs, and reduce operational risk.
