AMS Collaborator was established in 1987 when Richard Noland, Ph.D., founded Advanced Management Systems (AMS) and began providing business management consulting to Boards of Directors, Executives, and CEOs across the United States.

In 2001, AMS invested in a technology company that became AMS Collaborator. This company came from a start-up founded in 1996 that provided high security collaboration primarily to law firms and corporate legal departments. AMS Collaborator quickly became a self-sufficient entity and continues to provide a secure online application to a variety of vertical markets, including boards of directors, accounting, manufacturing, and legal.
