byzantiumimage01What's Byzantium?

Byzantium (bih-zan-tee-uhm) really is an odd word that we are asked about frequently. Let us tell you why we chose it as our company name along with a little history. Byzantium was an ancient Greek city, founded in the 7th century (657 BC), on the site that later became Constantinople (which is now modern Istanbul). It was mainly a trading city due to its location at the Black Sea's only entrance. Byzantium was founded by Byzas, a Greek colonist from Megara. Byzas found the location to place his city by consulting with an Oracle of Delphithat told him he would find it"opposite the blind".

Byzantium preserved and protected the very foundations of Western civilization, and it remains every bit as important as the ancient empires of classical Greece and Rome to civilization as we know it. 

Byzantium did not simply preserve what was old; it also began what was new. Byzantine scholars and the "lost" knowledge they brought to Italy, Venice, France and England were a founding spark of the Renaissance Era, when sciences began to lay the foundations of the modern world. This Renaissance process brought Enlightenment - and rise of Science and Technology.

We at Byzantium of today would like continue the rise of Science & Technology by continuing to stay on the leading edge and applying our practices to our client’s needs. We want to preserve the old-fashion way of building trusted, long-term relationships with our clients, business partners providing products focused on service beyond expectation.

Everyone here at Byzantium has their own Oracle of Delphi that strives to be in front of a customer that feels blind… to their Voice and Data needs. Let us help you see the savings your business can achieve!
