Technology Driven Results


Since it’s founding in 2004, Carrollton Enterprise Services has rapidly developed into a dynamic technology consulting firm, impacting major corporations and government agencies across the Gulf Coast. Responding immediately to the tragic consequences of Hurricane Katrina in 2005, Chris Reade, CEO, and his team were integral to the creation and deployment of key technologies desperately needed by FEMA and the Louisiana Governor’s Office of Homeland Security and Emergency Preparedness (GOHSEP), ultimately serving tens of thousands of the state’s citizens.

Carrollton was also involved in long-term resiliency efforts, through programs such as the Road Home and Hazard Mitigation Grant Program. Most recently, Chris was named Chief Technology Officer of the Deepwater Horizon Economic Claims Center (DHECC), the compensation management program resulting from the largest class action lawsuit in history. This relief program, with technology designed and overseen by the Carrollton team – will ultimately deliver more than $10 billion in recovery funds to citizens and businesses across the Gulf States.


Enterprise-level projects all have one thing in common: high stakes. When people’s homes, health, or livelihoods are on the line, Carrollton has the proven ability to immediately deliver ground-up solutions. And these solutions are about more than just technology. They’re about creating systems and processes that make day-to-day business processes more efficient, scalable and accountable. Open Source whenever possible, leveraging Commercial Off-the-Shelf (COTS) packages wherever possible.


Carrollton offers end-to-end information technology services, including acquisition management, installation of hardware and software systems, network design and implementation, managed services, COTS implementation and customization, and the creation of custom, proprietary software solutions.


At Carrollton, we can accommodate a variety of project management styles including both Agile and waterfall. We value rapid and frequent client feedback as this helps make sure our technology team and the client stakeholders remain on the same page throughout the duration of the project. We also find that it puts usable products in the clients’ hands faster.

Agile is not a “magic solution” to the challenges of managing a complex project. Nor is it a rigid or inflexible framework. Rather, agile is a collection of values and best practices that we feel improve our productivity, project outcomes, efficiency and company culture. We have expertise with agile methods including Scrum, Lean UX and development, Kanban, and DevOps. Agile helps our team, and our clients to achieve enterprise-wide agility with maximum transparency.

We also frequently use a waterfall model when dealing with complex systems and lengthy projects. A structured, step-by-step process helps ensure our team meets client deadlines and brings value at each stage of development.
