Why Scale Technology?
We work in IT for many reasons, but there are two very important ones. One— because we want to help you grow. Two—because we want to grow. Technology is always changing, and there is constant room to learn, innovate, and help others.
The best service that we bring to clients is proactive work—we sit with you, have a business conversation about what you want to do in the future, and we help you get there. Because IT isn’t just about reactivity—it is about being forward-thinking with your planning.
IT is about a bigger conversation. Where do you want your business to be in two years? Five years? 10 years? We want in on that conversation. Let Scale help your business evolve to reach your goals.
The Scale Team
PRESIDENT AND CEO
To me, our clients are just people trying to get work done. I enjoy creating solutions and executing plans that help them succeed. I love meeting with people and presenting the hard work that my team has accomplished. Seeing a client smile at the end of a meeting is just icing on the cake. The passion I have for my profession stems from a natural sense of curiosity. I like figuring out how things work and why they work. Give me a tough problem, and I’ll find a solution. Let me know what you’re trying to accomplish, and I’ll develop a plan of attack. I have worked with governors, presidential candidates, and hundreds of clients all over the country. Talk to me about your business goals and I’ll put a team in place that can reach them.
DIRECTOR OF BUSINESS DEVELOPMENT
Over the years, I have built relationships with clients by getting them to think about their business in a different way. I like helping them improve on things that they may not have considered otherwise. My ultimate goal is just to make a difference in their company. I take every opportunity to offer them a new perspective on their IT costs to help grow their business. Each of my clients is a unique snowflake that is very special to me. I am there to listen to their company’s problems and to talk through their personal struggles. I make it my job is to exceed their expectations on a daily basis. My hope is that my work reflects how much I care about their success.
I try to solve any client’s problems in a way that doesn’t leave them feeling like someone just spoke to them in another language. My hope is to offer up my technical knowledge while treating everyone with the kindness they deserve. I really do use every opportunity to learn, improve, and grow.
Growth of knowledge is its own spiritual journey. I want to be remembered as someone who was always there to lend a hand – just swing by the office to check out our new sign for proof! I’m glad to be here working at Scale Technology.
I love solving problems for people. And in IT, you deal with a huge spectrum of issues. I think what’s really important is how you solve the problem. That is to say, the specific service one provides is only satisfactory if it is provided in a pleasant manner. Ninety percent of my role is just having a positive attitude! The Scale IT team is a really good team, and I’m glad to be a part of it. Before starting at Scale, I spent five years in active duty with the Army, then re-classed into the Army Reserves in 2016 as an Information Technology Specialist. I just hate stagnation, and thankfully, IT is a constantly changing field. IT support is, in essence, a struggle against stagnation. If a client has an issue, production stops. We have the privilege to get things moving again.
Zachary J. Scott
I’m Zachary J. Scott, one of the Network Technicians at Scale Technology. I’m excited to further grow my knowledge within my position of Network Technician I. I have a background in Computer Science—my associate’s degree is actually in Computer Science and Networking Technology (CSNT). What really drew me to Scale Technology was the room for opportunity, growth, and the chance to provide people with the help they really need.
When I’m in the office, you can find me chatting on the phone with customers, solving problems, and doing research to help piece together and technological issues our clients are having. For me, the greatest satisfaction with working at Scale Technology is that genuine feeling of helpfulness when I’m able to provide a client with an answer they’ve desperately been looking for—there’s really nothing else like that feeling. On the days I’m not in the office helping clients, you can most likely find me dabbling in my favorite hobby (retro gaming), or exploring my other two passions—cars and computers.
I’m Brent Nicholas Phillips, the newest Network Technician on the Scale Technology team. I’m a sports-loving dog owner who has a genuine passion for technology and how it’s consistently changing the world we live in. I graduated from UCA with a degree in Computer Science.
Despite having a successful 7-year career in the restaurant industry, after I graduated, I decided to take a turn toward what I really loved—researching technology and applying it toward problem-solving. That’s why I joined the Scale Technology team—I love the all-for-one attitude this company takes on, and I love that the environment is built for constant learning and advancement.
On a regular work-day, you can find me in the office doing research, calling vendors, and puzzling out the problems our clients are dealing with. There’s absolutely nothing more exciting to me than the satisfaction that comes with fixing an issue for a client—that sensation of “I did it, I finally fixed this” is unmatched. When I’m not working, you can find me walking one of my four dogs at Two Rivers Park (did I mention I love animals?) or cheering on my favorite sports teams (go Cubs, Bulls, and Bears!).
I’m excited to be a part of the Scale Technology team and I look forward to growing as a network technician, learning as much as possible, and doing everything it takes to best provide for our clients.
CHIEF INFORMATION OFFICER
With two decades of experience, I’ve developed a business acumen in IT and finance. I’ve repeatedly seen that blending IT and finance strategies together significantly affect a company’s bottom line and overall success. I enjoy the challenges that IT can solve, and I love helping companies make a positive impact by developing the right IT infrastructure. I get excited when clients start to see their businesses differently because of the technology we help them to implement. My goal is to find the obscure missing piece that helps complete the puzzle for my clients.
I am proud to join the Scale team and help drive the company vision that compelled me to want to become a part of the team in the first place: helping clients reach their goals through strategic technology integration.
