Testimonial for Workplace I.T. from Michael Druskin
As the CEO of Len Druskin and Len stores in the Twin Cities of Minneapolis/St. Paul, knowing our network, phone system, and POS systems are stable, secure, and functional is one of my top priorities. With 9 retail stores in the Twin Cities Metro Area, as well as offices in New York City and Los Angeles, we depend on our systems to keep things running efficiently and to provide up to the minute information to our staff make smart and educated decisions. We enlisted the services of Workplace I.T. Mangement 12 months ago and have seen our problems diminish and our efficiencies grow at a cost that is both fair and predictable. Workplace is headquartered in Sioux Falls, SD, but that distance has not stood in the way of their providing superior support to both our Twin City area stores and our remote offices. I had my concerns about a provider that was out of the area, but I am now a believer in their approach to creating a stable and secure network environment for their customers and their ability to do it from afar if necessary. With so many new challenges facing me every day and a very busy schedule, it’s important for me to work with a team that has a forward thinking strategy to help support my business growth, as well as a comprehensive plan for day to day support. Workplace I.T. Management has shown strength in both strategic thinking and the facets of daily support. I can’t say enough about the commitment of the company, its ownership, and its staff, to make sure their customers are not only satisfied, but functioning as effortlessly as possible in the areas of technology. Thanks Workplace for helping me continue to grow my business and making every day a bit more stress free.

Testimonial for Workplace I.T. from Mark Glissendorf
Lawrence & Schiller is a full-service marketing communications company dedicated to going the extra mile for our clients. In order to fulfill that promise, we must have a rock-solid infrastructure.
In 2004 we found ourselves at the forefront of the information technology explosion. Computers, data and networks became our primary tools. We had managed our information technology needs with a one-person internal department. When that individual announced he was leaving the company we looked for a better way.
After an exhaustive search, and being told by one consultant that an outsource model would not work for L&S we entered into a partnership with Workplace. As I look back it was one of the most important business development decisions we have ever made.
Prior to Workplace our IT infrastructure was in the hands of one individual. If he was on vacation and our network or servers went down our entire shop was in danger of being shut down. Today the entire Workplace team collaborates in each of their areas of specialty to deliver the best systems for us. I no longer stay awake at night wondering if the servers are up, if we are using the best platforms or if are enterprise data is backed up securely.
The Workplace fixed-fee model also puts them on my side of the table when strategizing IT solutions and purchasing equipment. It is the best of both worlds. They work for me but their entire team costs less than my old one-man IT department.
Our executive team doesn’t spend time and energy on IT infrastructure. We trust Workplace for that. Now that energy is invested into growing our business which is something we know a lot more about than IT.
On top of all that the Workplace team has the highest integrity and is great to work with.
I suck at IT. They are very good at IT.

Testimonial for Workplace I.T from Rich Naser
During my 8 plus years as a Workplace IT customer, I have come to rely on Workplace IT’s expertise for every aspect of our network, from security to mail server management. Workplace IT has a knowledgeable team of professionals that would be nearly impossible for any small to mid-size organization to replicate. One of the most distinguishing characteristics of the organization is the Workplace technical staff – their ability to listen effectively and communicate clearly is unparalleled in my experience. Keeping our network up and running is the one thing I no longer have to worry about. It just works.
