Runbiz, as we have been nicknamed by our clients, has a very strong company culture. It is the cornerstone of our success and we are excited to be growing our team. We’ve been very intentional about our growth strategies and that’s led to not only the exponential growth that we’re being recognized for today, but sustainable growth over the last 18 years.
In 2000, we started with a team of 3 focused on supporting technology departments and more specifically accounting infrastructure. By 2015 we had the opportunity to acquire a long-standing competitor in this market that grew our team and our IT Managed Services client base even more. We’ve been presented with several acquisition opportunities, but our service base and our client mix are truly unique, so we have chosen to grow more organically. As of now, we have 26 team members and clients in distribution industries, industrial manufacturing, oil & gas, healthcare, professional services, hospitality, education, and technology, and those clients have a national and international footprint.
We are consistently looking to add value for our clients. The Runbiz model provides a managed service approach, this is a unique and proactive approach to growing companies through technology. We offer 24/7 monitoring and security and a unique support infrastructure that allows us to support our clients directly no matter where they are located.
