Personalized customer support

Dataworks is proud to serve the Newcastle and greater Seattle area. As a vested member of our local community, we are committed to providing our clients with a full-service approach to IT. In fact, many of our clients discovered our services because they were sick of dealing with “fix-it” IT shops that didn’t address core technology deficiencies and support technicians who treated them like a nameless number on the other end of the phone.

At Dataworks, we do things differently. We believe that the success of your business is based on meaningful relationships with technology experts who serve as a strategic business partner and an extension of your own staff! The foundation of our successful partnerships is trust, communication, and respect. We take the time to learn about your needs, challenges, and goals, and then we create solutions that will work to advance your objectives.

We explain the intricacies of your IT plan in plain, understandable terms and offer proactive recommendations to give you a competitive edge. In client relationships and within our team, we encourage individuals to share their insights, ask questions, and make suggestions that enable us to develop personalized strategies that help advance your business objectives.

CAROLINE SMITH, CEO AND FOUNDER

The visionary behind Dataworks Consulting, Caroline Smith has a combined background in both business and technology and has been the owner of Dataworks since its inception in 2002. Following a reorganization in 2013, she stepped into the CEO role with bold ideas and strategic insights that have been central to Dataworks’ success. By fostering a team that reveres diversity and inclusion, she’s created a customer-first environment where all ideas are welcome, reshaping Dataworks to adeptly evolve with the needs of Seattle small and mid-sized businesses.

A Microsoft Certified Professional, Caroline holds a Bachelor of Business Administration in Computer Science. In addition to being a roll-up-the-sleeves, hands-on CEO at Dataworks, Caroline is a community leader and speaker, hosting events on business and technology topics that are critical to protecting and fostering growth in small and mid-sized businesses.

When she’s not forging big ideas in the fires of Dataworks, Caroline is heavily involved with her local chapter of the Girl Scouts, and spending shuttling her two daughters to competitive swimming or taking in the great outdoors of the beautiful Pacific Northwest with her daughters and her faithful Goldendoodle, Arlo.

ARLO SMITH, CHIEF BARKING OFFICER

An all-star AKC Puppy STAR certified Goldendoodle, Arlo’s primary mission is to make sure that the Dataworks team proves him with ample belly rubs. Second to that, he’s the company crisis counselor, listening intently and offering emotional support when problems arise.

When he’s not running out the back door of the office or barking up a storm at nothing much, Arlo can be found nudging for pets and begging for chocolate cake in the kitchen. When he’s not at work, you can find him taking his owner Caroline for long walks.
