Our Expertise

Overview [ Our Expertise ] Our History

“Responsibility is a unique concept... You may share it with others, but your portion is not diminished. You may delegate it, but it is still with you... If responsibility is rightfully yours, no evasion, or ignorance or passing the blame can shift the burden to someone else. Unless you can point your finger at the man who is responsible when something goes wrong, then you have never had anyone really responsible.” - Hyman Rickover

Our History

Overview Our Expertise [ Our History ]

In 2011 we saw an opportunity to better help local businesses with IT services in the greater Portland area. With years of experience, we found a balance between price and quality of service. The word got out and today many local businesses gain from our IT Managed Services.
In 2019 we started a focus on superior business phone systems. We found many of our clients trapped with old and expensive phone systems. We then developed Nextworks Voice. Nextworks did not want to rely on 3rd party products and make compromises. We stand behind our superior solution with amazing support.

Celebrating 10 Years

It's been a lot of hard work and dedication but we made it. Decade ONE accomplished. Many thanks to our amazing clients and equally our team. Here's to another 10 years.
