Our team tips our hat to the leadership at both the State and City of Indianapolis levels for creating such an amazing business climate. What we found in working with the leaders in the State of Indiana's IEDC division was a group committed to growing companies and the high-tech workforce here in Indiana. We are thrilled to be able to put down our roots in Indianapolis and capitalize on the already strong talent base here.”

On the engineering side, Indiana companies are doing tremendous work in Embedded Systems Development, Autonomous Robotics, avionics and aerospace. These are all areas that Lucid Services Group can add value in our expansion."
The company’s current customer base spans from Fortune 500 enterprises to hospital networks to burgeoning SaaS companies. By growing professional services offerings, Lucid can increase staff and capabilities while being even more responsive to their customers needs.
