About us

Method Automation

We're a gritty bunch.

We believe in constant training and experimentation. We believe there is no substitute for experience.

We don’t believe in impossible.

We are energized by unique challenges, and we are fixated on delivering results — north of expectations and ahead of schedule.

We move fast because the world won’t wait.

We chase new ideas because the future belongs to makers and pioneers. We’re not fancy dressers. We’re more focused on solving business problems.

We are transparent. We insist that technology should simplify life, never complicate it.

We are inspired by each other, our neighbors and our community. Nothing outside of family brings us greater joy than seeing our customers accomplish something that surprises them.

All these tendencies and idiosyncrasies comprise the MAS team that has become one of the most trusted K2 partners in North America. We are proud of this, but humble enough to know that we’re only as good as the results we achieve for our next client.

The story behind Method Automation

In multiple business interactions and conversations over the years, Paul Konieczny, Founder and President, noticed a consistent dilemma: large budgets being spent on projects that never make it into production successfully. Paul knew that with his mastery of K2 software and years of development experience, he could turn those broken or lost projects into fully functional solutions. The desire to help these businesses connect their disparate systems within reasonable timeframes and budgets was the driving force behind the 2011 creation of Method Automation Services (MAS).

With no outside venture capital, Paul purchased an old bank building in an economically distressed area of Western Pennsylvania, started a 36-day renovation, hired a small team, and the company was born.

Paul started MAS with a no-nonsense attitude and a mantra on delivering successful projects “no matter what it takes.” Over the years, Paul and the MAS team honed a process to drive custom solutions into production ahead of schedule and within client budget.

“I love delivering more than one process to a customer with a budget I was given for only one,” Paul says. “It’s where the true value of their investment is realized.”

Over the past eight years, Paul and his MAS team of local talents, have driven hundreds of successful projects to production.
