May 18, 2017 (Newswire.com) –
CompuWorks, a Massachusetts-based managed IT services provider (MSP) specializing in making companies more efficient, innovative and profitable through the effective use of technology, is proud to celebrate thirty years. The company reflected on its history in an address to its employees.
Founded in 1987 by David Hall and Alan Bauman, CompuWorks’ mission has always been to help its clients maximize the business impact of technology. The company believes that technology should be a competitive asset, not simply a necessary evil. “Technology investments should directly impact an organization’s business plan” stated CompuWorks President David Hall. “Our clients are companies that share this belief and understand that when considered strategically, technology can help businesses improve customer service, facilitate communication and drive down operating costs.”
The only way a technology company can stay relevant over 3 decades is to be continually evolving.
CompuWorks serves as the outsourced IT department for most of its clients who range in size from 20 employees to over 1,000 and are generally located within about a 4 hour radius of their Pittsfield headquarters. With over 30 employees, the company is the largest managed IT services firm in the region.
In 1999, CompuWorks purchased the former City Savings Bank building in downtown Pittsfield and the business relocated into the larger quarters in the center of the city where it remains today. In 2006, the company began to shift to a managed services model and soon thereafter introduced its “HealthyIT” managed services program. “The only way a technology company can stay relevant over 3 decades is to be continually evolving” stated co-founder Al Bauman. “The embodiment of that evolution is our HealthyIT program which pulls together all of the processes and best-practices we’ve compiled and leads to the best end result for our clients.”
CompuWorks has been recognized for excellence by the U.S. Chamber of Commerce and was selected as an Achievement Award winner by the Western Mass Entrepreneurship Hall of Fame. The company is a 4-time Inc. 500 Award winner and has received recognition for community service and entrepreneurship from Chambers of Commerce and civic organizations. The company is active in the many communities in which it serves and supports many non-profit events and organizations.
CompuWorks is strategically aligned with HP, Cisco, and Microsoft among many others. Last year, the company reached its tenth consecutive year of revenue growth.
According to Bauman, “We’re very excited to celebrate this milestone. We are proud to have many long-time employees and our success has always been a team effort. This year we plan to reflect on where we came from and all that we’ve accomplished. It’s a great reason to celebrate. At the same time, we’re already working on innovative products and new services that will help our clients meet challenges in areas like security, mobility and cloud integration. Technology has never been more capable of providing businesses with a competitive edge than it is today and we’re going to continue to help our clients take advantage of that.”
To kick off its anniversary celebration, CompuWorks will conduct complimentary system assessments through the end of May 2017. Interested businesses can or call 413-499-0607.
