We are the complete out-sourced IT service for most of our clients, and we also provide backup services to in-house IT departments for big projects and hard problems. Our commitment to delivering the absolute best and most expeditious technology service to our clients is second to none.

OWS has been in business since 2000 in WNC, and we have a long track record of satisfied clients. The cornerstone upon which we operate is building strong partner relationships – we listen to your needs, we get to know your staff and your business, and we learn how you think and work in your organization. We believe that our System Engineers, with Microsoft, Cisco, and other certifications, are the strongest Information Technology team in WNC. We answer the phones and schedule and log all service requests promptly. You will be assigned a Lead Engineer who will get to know you and your systems and will be your primary support person. If your Lead Engineer is not available when needed, another of our Systems Engineers will take care of your needs under the guidance of your Lead Engineer.

We offer the most comprehensive and cost-effective data backup and disaster recovery solution on the market. This solution protects your data from catastrophic failures or disasters and can act as a “stand-in” server to minimize work downtime while your operating capability is restored.

The staff at OneWhoServes, Inc. has collective experience working with and for nonprofit agencies – as consultants, volunteers, staff members, and board members. Our efforts to support the nonprofit community include the development of our own donor and volunteer management software, local presentations at the Philanthropy Institute and Western North Carolina’s Nonprofit Association, a “Technology In Your Language” course offered through the Duke Nonprofit Management Program, and our free technology workshops. Whether you have one or one hundred computers in one or many locations, we can take care of your technology needs.
