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.”
