Our Story & Core Values

A proven leader in the IT industry since 1998

Our Story

Founded in 1998 as a small IT support company, we found our niche in providing professional technology services that let our customers focus on their core business competencies without worrying about their IT infrastructure.

As our company grew and started working with more clients, we researched and brainstormed ways to help our clients better manage their technology.

In 2002, we shifted our focus to pro-actively monitoring and maintaining our clients’ computer networks. This new approach of focusing on “up-time” instead of waiting for “things to break” helped us grow our company even larger.

Today, our team consists of nearly 20 employees and we serve clients around the Pacific Northwest. We enjoy partnering with our clients at a deep level and adding true value to their business. We look forward to pursuing our goal to be Washington State’s premier IT services company.

Our Core Values

With Key Methods, our core values are deep, strongly held beliefs about how we conduct our business. These are not simply “bullet points,” but are standards that we measure ourselves against daily.

  • Honesty and Integrity - Doing what is "Right" when no one is watching
  • Positive "Can Do" Attitude - Yes, We CAN
  • Be the Best - Your personal best makes us the best
  • Embrace Change - Change brings opportunity
  • Growth Oriented - Personal. Professional. Company.
