We’re pleased to share that InterWorks recently ranked on the 2021 CRN Solution Provider 500 list! The list recognizes the top 500 IT solution providers across North America based on solutions number and degree of IT partnerships and certifications. 2021 marks the seventh year InterWorks has made the list, demonstrating just how dedicated we are to offering IT solutions for just about every need.
How InterWorks Approaches IT Partnerships
Look, it’s always a thrill to win awards and make lists, but we’re not in the IT solutions business to fill a trophy shelf – we’re here to legitimately help people do more with tech. Adding to that, we’re not the type of company to partner with anyone and everyone. Yes, we want to cover the full gamut of IT needs by offering a broad swath of possible solutions, but our IT partnerships are very much built on two things:
- Does the technology meet a high standard of excellence and improve operations?
- Is the vendor/partner that provides that technology client-focused and enjoyable to work with?
That’s an oversimplification to be sure – our decision-making calculus goes a bit deeper than that – but if those two things come to the forefront, then we’re proud to stand behind such solutions. Let’s put it this way: We’re not going to recommend technology that we wouldn’t use ourselves as a company.
With that in mind, we’re still proud to make a list that recognizes the number of partnerships a solution provider has, but we’re all the prouder knowing that we’ve achieved without compromising on our values. At the end of the day, what we do and the IT solutions we provide should serve our clients above all else.
Looking for a Collaborative IT Partner?
There’s one last thing we should mention in relation to partnerships: Be it with IT vendors or clients, we seek out truly collaborative and mutually beneficial relationships in our work. We believe you should be involved in every step of the process, and our ultimate goal is to set you up for real success and independence – not continually selling things you may or may not need. If that’s the type of relationship you’re looking for in an IT partner, we’d love to chat with you.
