Make It Work® was formed in 2001 on the visionary idea of bringing personal, high touch technology services to the home with same-day service, instant response and an approach to customer delight never before delivered. Make It Work redefined the traditional technology services category dominated by low touch, low quality, in-store support. Given the ever increasing complexity of technology and demands on people’s time, Make It Work anticipated the need for a new approach to making technology easier with a customer-centric strategy.
In 2006, Make It Work was named Software Services Company of the Year by the Software Council of Southern California. The company has been named “Best of” in computer repair by the Santa Barbara Independent the past two consecutive years and was named 6th Fastest Growing Company in the Tri-counties by Pacific Coast Business Times in 2009. Make It Work made the Inc500 list in 2007 as the 78th fastest growing IT company in the United States.
In 2008, Make It Work launched Poogling™ Internet Safety Seminars, dedicated to bringing awareness and providing education on child Internet safety to parents throughout Southern California. In January 2010 Make It Work partnered with Santa Barbara School Districts and the Santa Barbara Education Foundation to bring Poogling to the Santa Barbara community in a city-wide seminar. Make It Work has also partnered with Verizon to create an online version of the seminar so the message will be more readily available for parents everywhere.
