Why WorkSmart?

Here are just a few reasons why WorkSmart makes a great IT partner for your business.

We hire skilled, likeable IT consultants who fit your culture and your needs.

At WorkSmart, we believe in doing the right thing, making personal connections, and sharing a hunger for growth. Our IT consultants share these values so they can build strong, lasting relationships with each and every partner.

Like you, we’re local.

WorkSmart was founded in 2001 in North Carolina and is headquartered in Durham. We’re continuing to grow and have offices in Charlotte, Greensboro, Philadelphia, Atlanta, and the NY metro. That means the consultants who work on your business are always a short drive away.

What Our Clients are Saying

In the nine years we’ve used WorkSmart’s services, we have been down for maybe two or three hours total. Previously, with a “cheaper” service provider, downtime occurred on a weekly, sometimes daily, basis. Being down is very expensive, so I am happy to report WorkSmart has been spot on for us and our organization. I would recommend them to anyone.
