WorkSmart Celebrates Its 20th Anniversary

WorkSmart celebrates its 20th anniversary as a full-service, managed IT services company headquartered in Durham, North Carolina.

WorkSmart was founded in 2001 by Ron Unger and Clay Harris, while they attended the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. Believing that technology should be a strategic tool for small businesses, they worked to help a handful of local businesses to find the right tools and processes to support the people.

Continuing with the same purpose and passion today, WorkSmart provides a variety of services and technologies including, managed/co-managed IT services, cybersecurity, data backup & recovery, IT strategy & planning, and cloud services.

WorkSmart celebrates 20 years in business

Through organic growth and several business acquisitions, WorkSmart has experienced exceptional growth over the last 20 years. We’ve expanded to four offices in different states along the East Coast, with more than 100 employees overall.

For the past couple of years, WorkSmart has been honored by the Triangle Business Journal as one of the best places to work in the Triangle area. Check out this TBJ interview with our CEO, Clay, as he reminisces over the past two decades of WorkSmart, and looks toward the future of the company and industry as a whole. The company has also been recognized as one of the fastest-growing private companies in both the Triangle and across America, including more than 10 years on the Inc 5000.

We work with small, local businesses to fuel their growth through simplifying the IT process. With a dedicated team of technology consultants and account managers, WorkSmart forges meaningful relationships with clients, to help make recommendations that best suit their own business goals.

By building a culture that values curiosity, doing the right thing, and connection, we focus on helping clients and team members reach their fullest potential.
