Thompson Enterprises, Limited  began as a family business in 1968.  It was formed into a real estate holding company in Pocatello, Idaho in 1991. Its headquarters was moved on December 1, 2014 to Boise Idaho and it began a strategic transformation into a technology consulting firm specializing in applied operations research.

Applied operations research is a broad practical knowledge of the techniques and modeling concepts needed to analyze, design, and manage complex business systems.  The firm mathematically models the business organization as a multistage stochastic program with computer assisted decision strategies.
