Innovative Systems to expand in Mitchell, add jobs
By: News release, S.D. Governor's Office of Economic Development
For the third time in 10 years, Mitchell-based Innovative Systems is expanding.
The company is adding 30,000 square feet to its current Mitchell facility and also adding 30 new employee positions.
Innovative Systems provides integrated hardware and software solutions for the independent telecommunications industry. The expansion will help Innovative Systems accommodate its growing client list. Specifically, the expansion will provide Innovative Systems with office space for an increased staff of software developers and support specialists.
In 1998, Roger Musick, CEO and founder of Innovative Systems, started the family-owned company in Mitchell, along with his son, Kyle, and son-in-law Ryan Tupper.
Gov. Dennis Daugaard says Innovative Systems is a great South Dakota success story.
“Innovative Systems started out with 10 employees. In less than 15 years, the company has impressively grown to 160 employees,” the Governor said. “Innovative Systems is proof that the entrepreneurial spirit in Mitchell is alive and well.”
As part of the expansion plan, the Governor’s Office of Economic Development is providing workforce development assistance to help train new and existing employees.
Innovation Systems expects to break ground for its expansion project this summer and has already begun hiring additional staff. The company will hire support specialists and software developers incrementally, with a goal of hiring at least 30 new employees in the next three years.

Innovative Systems has more than 1,000 systems deployed across the United States and Canada. The company provides solutions to streamline billing and provisioning processes, as well as services that enhance subscribers' experiences with advanced telecommunications services for land line, wireless and TV service providers.
