About Us

Established in 1999 by Frank Cucco, CEO, Nate Robinson, Document Solutions Account Executive/Partner and Dan Meyer, President, Impact Networking has grown from a Waukegan, IL-based copier dealer into an integrated business technology company extending across the Midwest and West Coast. Over the past 20 years, Impact has achieved numerous milestones, having recently exceeded the $100 million revenue goal, employing over 700 experts and supporting over 14,000 clients. While our business model has evolved, we maintain the same goal of providing companies with the competitive advantages necessary for them to thrive in an increasingly digital world. We do so with a custom set of solutions and technology, backed by a team of industry experts who work to tailor goals based on each client’s budget, goals and go-to-market strategies.

From assessments to implementation, our team collaborates to effectively utilize new, affordable technology and services that cater to businesses developing their digital transformation roadmap. We partner with the IT industry’s top vendors and employ strategic advisors, tech and creative experts and service technicians to deliver the best customer experiences within our lines of IT, cybersecurity, process optimization, marketing and print services.
