CircleSource was formed in 2002 in Chicago as Azikewe Systems by founder and CEO Tanveer Patel. In 2003, she renamed the company and moved it to Birmingham when her husband, Maqbool Patel, took a job with Emageon. He later served as the company's CIO.
CircleSource employed 60 people with branch offices in Huntsville and Nashville, and a wholly-owned development center in Bangalore, India. The company produced custom software primarily for healthcare and logistics clients.
In 2010 Patel sold the company to eMids Technologies of Nashville, Tennessee.
