Zaheer K. Master

President

Zaheer has always had a passion for problem solving. It was this passion that lead him to pursue a degree in Computer Science at Binghamton University. After graduation, he encountered a problem close to home. His Father, a CPA, was running out of space to store paper files. After an exhaustive review of nearly every solution available, Zaheer recommended Laserfiche to his Father. Zaheer was so impressed with Laserfiche that he decided to quit his job and form Accelerated Information Systems to provide Laserfiche solutions to other companies.

Since that time in 2005, Accelerated Information Systems has grown to become one of the top Value-Added Resellers for Laserfiche. Clients of Accelerated Information Systems include Fortune 500 firms, Registered Investment Advisors and Broker-Dealers, Colleges and Universities, and State and Local Governments.

Throughout his career Zaheer has become well known for innovative solutions to today’s business challenges. Forging long-lasting relationships and fostering customer success is the driving force behind Accelerated’s prosperity.

Zaheer resides in Long Island, New York with his wife and daughter.
