What Does it Take for an IT Services Company from the San Francisco Bay Area to Become One of the Nation’s Fastest Growing Companies?

We’ve already examined the criteria that Inc. looks at when determining what companies get listed, so let’s take a few minutes to check out the business practices behind the dollar figures of America’s fastest growing companies.

Here are the five things it takes for an IT services company to grow at a rapid rate.

#1 – An enthusiasm for more than technology.

Sure, technology is what an IT services company works with every day, but in reality, getting the mechanics of the technology right is not the goal of superb IT support staff. Instead, leveraging that technology to help people do their jobs more efficiently and securely is the goal. For IT services companies to be successful, they have to focus on people, how people work, and how people use the technology that the IT services company is managing and maintaining for the client.

#2 – A search to hire and keep the best.

Great IT staff members with the experience to harness the power of technology to improve business processes don’t grow on trees. Because of this, IT support companies that want to be at their best scour the country for talented people that exhibit the right skill set and the culture of their company. Once hired, they treat those individuals well, and in turn, those employees treat the clients well.

#3 – A determination to be an indispensable resource.

There is one thing that unites all the 5000 companies on the 2018 list. That is, they provide value to their clients – and then find a way to add more value. In relation to IT services companies, this value-driven ethos spills out into the local economy as clients are more productive and successful because they have the right underlying technology and IT management.

#4 – A service offering that meets the demands of businesses that want to scale.

If you have the right people and culture, but not the right services to help present and future clients, you’re not going to grow. It’s as simple as that. IT services companies that make it to the Inc. 5000 list have service offerings that enable employees to work more quickly through internal processes and in turn get more accomplished. But service offerings are not simply about where the client company is today. Service offerings must be scalable and flexible to walk with the client company to their next plateau of growth. Some of the more significant IT services offered by pro-growth IT services companies like Intivix are:

  • Cloud Servers, Hosting & Private Cloud
  • Security and Auditing
  • Office 365 and Google for Work
  • Single Sign-on
  • Business Continuity and Disaster Planning
  • MyWorkDrive
  • Network Design
  • Network Support
  • PC & Mac Support
  • Mobile & Tablet Support
