We specialize in brand services including store openings, expansions, remodels, retrofits, re-openings, as well as rollouts of major marketing campaigns. Interior and exterior signage, graphics, fixtures, and more, we’re experienced in all aspects of brand application. We’ve touched a broad range of industries, including banking, retail, consumer electronics, apparel, restaurant and others.


MLE Inc. have been using BusinessMan since 2015 and it has seen the company grow substantially since then.


 As technology advanced, Computech designed and built a new system to replace their legacy BusinessMan system.

This was evaluated by MLE and it was decided to upgrade to the new platform. 

 “We have completed our internal review of our go forward path for MLE’s ERP solution.  We have decided that the best solution for MLE will be BMEW.  We were impressed by not only the platform of MariaDB, but also the interface, usability, flexibility, and simplicity of BMEW over Netsuite.  We felt that BMEW was not only a better value, but an overall better product for us in direct comparison to Netsuite.  

We also took into account our relationship over the last 5 years.  Internally, we feel that Computech has always acted in MLE’s best interest and that the entire organization has put forward maximum effort since day one.  We feel that all the people at Computech have similar values to us here at MLE: work hard and get the job done.  We look forward to taking our internal systems and processes to the next level.”


Cleveland, OH – September 28, 2021 – Stratus, a leading facilities services and brand implementation services firm, today announced the acquisition of Chicago area-based MLE Brand Services, creating a $325+ million company with nearly 850 employees throughout the United States. The newly combined Stratus and MLE facilities service offerings cover the full brand lifecycle, including interior and exterior signage, refresh and remodel construction, repair and maintenance, and energy services.

MLE continue to use BME Web and it may lead to Stratos also adopting the new system, but it is early days as yet.
