- Why Dizzion
Dizzion was recently selected as a 2017 Colorado Companies to Watch Award Winner. This award has existed for nine years and is designed to recognize and honor companies that have a positive impact on the growth and economic independence of Colorado by developing valuable products and services, creating quality jobs, enriching communities and generating new industries.
Winners are selected each year based on company size and stage, revenue growth, exceptional entrepreneurial leadership and sustainable competitive advantage. Dizzion is one of 50 award winners from a candidate pool of more than 700 nominees.
We sat down with Dizzion CEO and Co-Founder Steve Prather, who’s based in our Denver office, to discuss what this award means to the company and how Dizzion plans on continuing its growth and positive impact on Colorado and the end user computing industry.
What was your first thought when you learned that Dizzion had been selected as a Colorado Company to Watch (CCTW)?
What a great honor for the team to be recognized for their accomplishment.
One of the main reasons companies are selected as a CCTW winner is because they “exhibit innovative products or processes.” What makes Dizzion innovative?
Since our inception we have been focused on solving the traditional desktop issues that customers experience and redefining the way users work. We constantly think about and target how we do this from the customer problem side versus technology and that drives our innovation focus.
What’s been your favorite Dizzion innovation within the past five years?
Being one of the first if not the first DaaS provider to obtain PCI and HIPAA compliance. We recognized early on that this would be a huge endeavor but believed in the value it would bring to our customers and partners and we completed both in the second half of 2016.
What role does innovation play at Dizzion and in the company’s business decisions?
We are constantly focused on how we can do things better and deliver a better service to our customers. This manifests itself in many ways outside of just the traditional technology innovation you would expect from a technology-centric company.
How has Dizzion grown and enriched the Colorado community since its founding?
Outside of our investment in staff, office space and the associated spend in Colorado I am proud of the many volunteer and community programs and groups that our staff choose to support.
Why is Colorado a good place to grow a technology company?
We are very fortunate to be headquartered in Colorado as we have great access to technology talent, a growing and thriving economy and a place where staff want to work and play.
What does winning this award mean to you as a founder and CEO?
It is wonderful to be a founder and CEO of a company that has been presented this honor but more importantly that our team has helped to build a company that would be recognized for this accomplishment.
In your opinion, what makes Dizzion a company worth watching?
We constantly strive to do our best for customers, partners and staff. When we get all three right we can accomplish great things that may just be worth watching.
