You don’t say

“I’m not aware of that at all. We have two offices in Old Town right now and are very pleased with the properties.”

Airbus spokeswoman Mary Anne Greczyn’s e-mailed response about whether the company is moving into the space Imaging Office Systems is vacating (sources say plans are in the works)

Imaging Office Systems leaves Old Town for the west side

WICHITA — In January, a representative of Imaging Office Systems first confirmed the company would be making a “space correction” and leaving its Old Town office.

“We are moving out of here – finally,” says regional sales manager Barry Carr.

The company is in the process of leaving its 9,800 square feet at 201 N. Mead for 6,000 square feet at 7222 Northwind St., which is near 37th Street and Ridge Road.

“It really boils down to space efficiency and rent control,” Carr says. He calls Old Town, where the company has been for 10 years, “a high-rent district.”

Imaging Office Systems is an Indiana-based company that does document management, including conversion from paper to digital, and workflow process design and implementation and business process outsourcing.

At one time, Carr says, the company needed more room for employees.

“Now we do a lot more virtual officing,” he says.

Carr says the lab for conversion services and document storage is growing and needs reconfiguring, which is part of the reason for the move.

Currently, the Wichita Imaging Office Systems office has 127 employees, but Carr says he’ll soon need more lab personnel.

“It looks like we’ll probably be hiring here in the next couple of months.”

Imaging Office Systems to leave Old Town

WICHITA — Imaging Office Systems is leaving Old Town, but it’s not leaving Wichita.

“We love the community,” says Bob Barkley, vice president at the Indiana-based company. “It’s a good place.”

The company has been in 6,000 square feet at 201 N. Mead in Old Town, which is next to Airbus, for a decade. Barkley says the space isn’t laid out the way the company it needs to be, and it’s about double the size of what the company now requires.

“We’re more efficient,” he says. “We do more stuff with computers than people.”

The company provides document imaging services and sells software for people to solve storage issues. It also provides some document storage.

Barkley says the company is working on a new 3,000-square-foot office, which he says should be ready in April, in west Wichita.

“This is only just a space correction,” Barkley says. “It’s really just that simple.”
