Our Expertise

Overview [ Our Expertise ] Our Clients 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 Clients [ Our History ]

In 2011 we saw an opportunity to better help local businesses with IT support in the greater Portland area. With a background of several decades of collective experience in managing IT departments, we started Nextworks IT. We quickly discovered just how "jagged" most small business IT environments were. We knew we could do better... much better. We found a balance between price and quality of service, while building a great team and a fun place to work.
In 2019 Nextworks started a new product: Nextworks Voice, delivering superior business phone systems with responsive and personable local support. We found many of our IT clients trapped with old, semi-functional, and expensive phone systems. There had to be a better alternative at a much better cost. Nextworks did not want to simply become a VAR for a national VoIP service provider and thus make quality and response time compromises. We stand behind our own superior solution with amazing support.
