Our Mission

To Give Businesses the Technological Edge

We are driven by the belief that there is an ideal technological solution for every business – regardless of size, budget, or market. By listening carefully and observing the way our clients’ businesses work, we are able to formulate IT strategies to position them for success.

Our History

Becoming VirtuWorks

In 1996, Miami, like the rest of the world, was on the brink of the internet boom. VirtuWorks CEO Omar Armenteros, then in his teenage years, was fascinated with learning and implementing all the exciting technology emerging. Web hosting, email, and online applications, to name a few.

With excitement in applying this new knowledge and experience, he and lifelong friend Matt Mehler founded VirtuWorks, to form one of the first ISP’s in Miami. Providing 14.4k dial-up internet access, POP3 email, website design and shared web hosting, the teenagers set out to bring the benefits of this new technology to businesses throughout South Florida. That same goal drove these two partners through the next 25 years.

In the early years of the internet, they helped companies navigate through the growing pangs and avoiding the pitfalls of a newly connected globe. This experience gave them a unique ability to provide the businesses they work with an edge over the competition that exists even today. 

VirtuWorks Today and into the Future

Though their mission has not changed in the last 2½ decades, it’s not just Omar and Matt anymore. Our team has grown to over 25 highly skilled engineers, security experts, and IT consultants. VirtuWorks is still driven by that same enthusiasm to keep learning and understanding how to use technology as a tool to make businesses run smoothly and more profitably

Virtuworks is the IT partner companies trust for intelligent, comprehensive and optimized solutions tailored to the way their businesses work. We understand every company operates differently, and each client deserves far more than a one-size-fits-all implementation.
