We are Gulf Coast Solutions

GCS provides a wide array of services including professional consulting, custom software development, mobile solutions and more. Whether you need a large-scale enterprise class application, a small “proof of concept” application, or just the leadership to help you decide, Gulf Coast Solutions has the experience, passion, and expertise to help you get there. We have developed hundreds of applications that have helped businesses grow and succeed in even the most challenging of economic conditions.​

We started this company to give organizations a better alternative than the large-scale consulting firms who seem more concerned about filling a body than filling a need. We only take on projects that we believe we truly can be a value-added partner, and work with you to improve your business and/or processes. We maintain a small team and low overhead to ensure that whichever project we are involved in, you get the best we have to offer at all times.

Our team is made up of passionate, energetic, and solution oriented individuals with over 75 years experience providing IT services for businesses of all size, specializing in industrial and service oriented business models.  Even more important, the founders of GCS are also the managing partners, and take pride in the products and services our company delivers, as we are an active part in every project we take on.

Mike Salo

Mike Salo

President - Professional Services, Founder

Born in rural Montana, Mike came to the Houston area as a teenager and after completing his degree at the University of Houston, began his career as a software developer. Starting out at a major Oil & Gas company, Mike continued to work in similar industries before co-founding GCS. His relentless work ethic and accountability provides consistency, reliability, and stability to all of GCS' endeavors, and is a big reason for our industry leading support accolades. His refusal to let obstacles stand in the way not only has helped professionally, but has also led to him completing multiple marathons, races, and even climbing Mount Rainier in the past 2 years.

Chase Caillet

Chase Caillet

President - Product Development, Founder

Born outside of New Orleans, Louisiana, Chase came to Houston after completing a degree in Computer Engineering from Louisiana State University. After starting his career as a software developer, Chase has held numerous IT positions at a major Oil & Gas company over the last 7 years. Being the youngest of the GCS founders, the 'Generation Y' perspective helps our partners and projects navigate through the dynamic, fast-based social media and mobile platforms. As a musician and chronic 'doodler', his creative side helps ensure our products not only function, but are easy to use, professional in appearance, and have that right amount of flare that some projects require.

"Perfection is achieved, not when there is nothing more to add, but when there is nothing left to take away."

CIO Strategy & Leadership

CIO Strategy & Leadership

Professional IT leadership is critical to any business, but hiring a full-time CIO is difficult and expensive. GCS can deliver a virtual, part-time leadership role to provide you with a tailor-made, enterprise-class leadership team at a fraction of the cost.

Professional Consulting

Professional Consulting

Whether you need a PM, BA, ERP specialist, or just guidance, GCS will provide consulting services to fit your needs. We are truly a vendor agnostic firm who can, and will, offer non-biased, professional consulting services on an array of technical or business issues.

Software Development

Software Development

Primarily focusing on the .NET technology stack, GCS delivers end-to-end solutions for all industries and sizes. We remove the guesswork and frustration from custom software development by becoming a business partner, not a vendor.

Mobile Solutions

Mobile Solutions

Let’s face it, mobility is no longer a dream, it’s a must for any growing business, but there is not a one-size-fits-all solution. GCS can help you navigate the fast-paced technology landscape of mobility solutions to determine which one is right for you.

Cloud-based Services

Cloud-based Services

Using “the cloud” can be a key advantage to any organization, but the success of these services depends on the right partner as much as the technology. GCS has experience with providers such as Microsoft, Rackspace, Venyu, and more to help ensure you are getting the most out of your cloud services.
