Sometimes, the results are visible and immediate…sometimes our efforts plant seeds that need time to take root. Either way, what is always true is – our team has a big heart and InmarCares!
With former IBMers among our founding members, Inmar has known the value of STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) disciplines since our beginning. Our one-day Math Matters and Awesome Analytics program held at our headquarters in Winston-Salem, NC, demonstrates the importance of STEM proficiency in most any field one pursues. It has proved popular with middle- and high-school students and their teachers. Students interact with our engineers, graphic designers, marketers and data teams for a fun glimpse into “the real world!”

We know that diverse teams produce the best results, so Inmar proudly sponsors “Girls on Fire” an all-girl robotics team in conjunction with the NC FIRST robotics competition. This spirited group, supported by Inmar mentors, builds and tests their very own robot and then compete to deliver the best robot performance. No prior experience or skillset is required – just positive energy and a desire to contribute their unique talent and passion within a team environment.
By day Inmar’s technology gurus develop technology and data solutions for the world’s leading brands, retailers and health systems. They often devote their evenings to serving those in the community who have computer issues or just want to learn more about them. Teaming with WinstonNET, a community technology nonprofit with a mission to close the digital divide and serve as a resource for computer access and training, Inmar’s team mans a help desk at a local community center. This highly skilled, knowledgeable team provides one-on-one assistance to those who have questions or need help with anything from troubleshooting problems with a personal computer or mobile device to learning ways in which technology can help their daily lives.
The brain child of Inmar CTO Greg Kerr, our goal is to help other companies start similar programs in their areas. He says that “While there are outlets for legal, medical and other professionals to provide community service and although technology has become as necessary for modern living as electricity, there is really no outlet today for people to seek assistance when their complex and often costly devices break down. There are also few outlets to visit to get the “how to” of technology services. What our team does each day is important to Inmar, to our clients and consumers – this provides another outlet and opportunity to have an impact that matters. Whether it is by helping fix someone’s device, or teaching them how to do it themselves, it may even spark that someone’s interested in a career in technology.”
Inmar’s founder John Whitaker established a strong legacy of support for the United Way. Inmar associates carry forward that legacy today through active involvement in United Way agencies and in fundraising efforts. We have been a recipient of the Spirit of North Carolina Campaign for Excellence Award, which provides statewide recognition for exceptional commitment and support to local communities.
Inmar Technology Scholarships are awarded to students who present solid academic credentials and have a strong interest in studying Computer Science at Wake Forest University. Inmar Technology Scholarships, valued at $10,000 annually, also allow students to earn $6,400 during the summer and up to $5,000 through fall and spring semester work study at Inmar.
The Center for Retail Innovation provides a forum for Inmar to work with manufacturers and retailers on innovations that will impact their bottom lines.
Inmar proudly supports the American Heart Association (AHA). We come out in force each year to raise money and attention for the Heart and Stroke Walk, which is the American Heart Association’s premier event that brings communities together to raise funds and celebrate progress in the fight against this country’s No. 1 and No. 5 killers, heart disease and stroke.
