ABOUT VERTIKAL6

Meeting Your Partner

Making Your Technology Work

At Vertikal6, we are focused on the importance of how we work and what we do. Our six core values clarify the identity of our company and our employees are reminded of our six values on a daily basis in our company name and on display throughout our office. We are proud of our values and believe they truly speak to the unique aspect and culture of our business.

Care Deeply

You can never spend too much time thinking and worrying about the client. The quality of our service begins and ends with caring.

Innovate Relentlessly

There’s always a way to improve. Provide new ideas and look for a better way. Remember there is always a way to do the impossible.

Service Sincerely

Our client’s interests come first. Replace self-pride with pride in client satisfaction. Sincerity results in success.

Collaborate Feverishly

Build bridges with your peers, partners and clients. They are a treasured resource — crucial to your success.

Listen Earnestly

When we listen to understand, not to reply, we share ideas and can then execute successfully for our clients.

Improve Eternally

If we do not learn, we’ll always be in the same place. Continuous development of your knowledge and skills is our sustainable competitive advantage.
