Why should you choose Manawa, when faced with so many choices for Managed IT services, consulting and solutions? The real answer to the question “Why Manawa?” is the many benefits that we can provide you with. Take a look at what we bring to your business:
Manawa Associates are experienced and highly trained professionals who bring the combined knowledge of our team with them when they walk through your door. They are the types of individuals that you would look to hire if you ran an in-house IT department.
We empower our people with an effective process that starts with Manawa’s commitment to providing personalized IT services to businesses of all sizes. This includes case management, metrics, measurements and more; all within an industry standard approach for IT delivery while encouraging innovation and creativity.
Our IT platform and the foundation from which we run our business is the top in the managed IT services industry. We deliver Service Automation, Service Management and Cloud Monitoring. This technology enables our people to serve your business.
Personal. Personality. Personable.
(They all start with Person.)
Manawa Networks grew from a simple, powerful premise: We set out to make every one of our customers feel as though they have all the benefits of an in-house IT department, but without the commitment that maintaining their own team would require. We make every effort to make your Manawa resources as efficient as possible, so that you’ll never feel like you’re funding a comeback for online solitaire.
The truth is, many small and medium sized businesses don’t need full time support for their technology, but they still need any time support, as well as ongoing maintenance, IT strategy, implementation and more. Manawa delivers all that and more.
More like in-house than outsourced.
We are more than just some outside IT service provider that reads from a script to meet your needs. Our highly experienced and personable team isn’t tossed into a pool that you access at random. You’re not required to explain for the third time, to the next available representative, what your problem is. Instead, you have a dedicated team of Manawa Associates, whose names you know, who know your business, know your technology and understand what you need it to do. So, instead of calling an automated answering system you call and get Tim or Bill…
It’s that simple.
So that’s our idea. We’re in the business of making good systems great with great people, real relationships and remarkable service. We’ve been at it (and growing mightily) since 2008.
This is us.
To join the team at Manawa, our associates have to have the right stuff: technical prowess, business savvy, and a keen interest in delivering remarkable customer service. We recognize that your business is not a training ground, so we only onboard those who fit the bill.
The Manawa Associate who supports your business will be well equipped to deliver the professional, personable, and expert service you’re looking for and he or she will always have the support of the full Manawa team.
Manawa’s Management Team
Co-Founder and CEO
As a co-founder of Manawa, it’s gratifying to see our concept of a company that delivers super-star service grow into the successful IT firm we’ve become. Overseeing our strategic direction and growth initiatives, I’m naturally looking forward to the success continuing! I also support our vendors and partner relationships – and I have to say, they also support us. We have a great roster of partnerships that help us meet our customer needs. My B-Comm from Ryerson University fueled the entrepreneur in me and Manawa has been a real treat since day one. When I’m off the clock, I fundraise for the Multiple Sclerosis Society of Canada and enjoy playing hockey and basketball or a good game of squash. I love to explore the world, and I’m always planning my next journey!
Co-Founder and COO
After more than a decade of experience as an IT consultant, I’ve had the privilege to work with many clients – not just to maintain technical resources, but working with the organizations I’ve served, to help them achieve their business goals. IT is so integral to business today that IT strategy is a critical aspect of business planning. As a co-founder of Manawa, I oversee the service we provide making sure our standards and the talent we bring to the table is in line with our customer’s needs. And that’s what I’ve done with my BSc from Devry University! In downtime, I love to play ball hockey and I’m an avid student of the martial arts.
