The ByteTime Story

A company grown from childhood friendships and shared passions.

Byte Time Computing, Inc. evolved from a friendship that began among four boys in the 4th grade at Cimarron Elementary in Katy, Texas. Brandon Layhew, Rob Caesar, Paul Johnston and Scott Fleenor then attended junior and senior high schools together constantly participating in team sports. On and off the playing field, they developed the values of loyalty, honesty, commitment, and hard work that have served them well throughout the years. After high school graduation, three went on to serve honorably in the U.S. military, while another attended a state university. During these years they developed their IT skills and experience with a strong emphasis on customer service and building relationships.

In 2007, Scott, an Army veteran, formed Byte Time Computing, a sole proprietorship serving residential and small business customers in the Texas Hill Country. His firm grew as he managed clients ranging from professional service firms to medical and dental practices as well as retail and non-profits.

During the previous 10 years, Brandon was a national sales manager and public speaker in the medical industry after earning a degree from Southwest Texas (Texas State) University. During this time he was exposed to many of the guidelines and compliance concerns facing medical practitioners, such as HIPAA, STARK, and the American Reinvestment and Recovery Act (ARRA). After President Obama signed ARRA into law in 2009, Brandon saw an opportunity to provide medical practitioners and financial institutions with a platform to meet these strenuous new demands imposed by this legislation.

Rob served as an Airborne Ranger in the U.S. Army. Later employed in a high ranking position with a major financial banking IT corporation, his strong background in sensitive security issues was a perfect fit for the new company the four friends envisioned, and Byte Time Computing, Inc. was formed.

It was only natural that they would turn to former classmate Paul Johnston to be their lead technician. Paul served in the U.S. Marine Corps, where he was awarded the Navy Achievement Medal for technical expertise. He is also a graduate of Texas State University (Southwest Texas State) with a degree in Computer Science.

Since its founding, Byte Time Computing Inc. is proud to say it has more than 500 client operations in 8 states, 3 countries, and 2 U.S. Territories. Their mission remains a simple one: to provide the business owner with the growth and security they seek through the use of a fast, reliable and secure computer network. They accomplish this goal using the same values they developed all those years ago: loyalty, honesty, commitment, and hard work.
