“There is a lot behind our new name, but it all starts with our seven core values. Our management team, which has seven members, worked hard to define how we can serve our clients better and that was the genesis for the new name. Another interesting fact: Businesses with under $50 million in annual revenue should be spending about 7% of their revenue on the maintenance and acquisition of technology solutions.”

ACP Technologies thrives by immersing itself in client industries to deeply understand unique business needs, crafting custom IT solutions through a meticulous eight-step process. From initial needs assessment to securing networks and proactive support, ACP ensures each strategy is not only implemented but also continuously optimized.
