Bringing together people, process, and technology

At Worksighted, we go beyond providing IT support in Michigan and across the nation. We build long-term technology partnerships that help you adapt to the fast-paced digital world and achieve long-term growth.

Who is Worksighted?

Great question.

Founded in a humble basement in 2000, Worksighted is the brainchild of Mike Harris who combined his passion for technology with an entrepreneurial drive. Since then, Worksighted has become one of the fastest-growing private companies in the country.

Repeatedly recognized on Inc 5000’s “fastest growing privately held companies” list, Mike has shaped our company with a strong culture that does not follow the rules. Now the go-to business transformation partner for hundreds of clients across Michigan and the nation, we’re known for excellence in IT operations. As a long-term Microsoft Solutions Partner and Cisco Select Partner, we have the expertise to drive your IT infrastructure forward so you can focus on the things that matter most.

We never offer a cookie-cutter approach or sell technology for the sake of it. We embrace the differences of every scenario, understand your specific needs, and then work our butts off to get results.

With Worksighted, you get the real deal. No fluff, no filler. Just people, process, and technology.
