Mission

Help you redefine the role of IT – bring IT and business together to achieve organizational goals. Our consultative approach, proven industry experience, and relentless focus on client success are the core values shared by all our employees.


 

History

Over two decades of continuing commitment to high-quality technology services to help clients innovate and improve IT operations.

Our Start

ATS started in 1994 with the same mission as today. Our founder, Jeff Chandler, saw an opportunity in providing high quality managed IT services and network support to firms where quality matters most – the organizations that rely heavily on information technology and high levels of services. Over the years, ATS has built client trust that has lasted for years and years. As time goes forward, our consultative approach resonates well, and our “corporate knowledge” about our clients’ IT operations helps our clients perform at a higher level.

In 1994, the Internet was a new thing. The pace of change in an Internet-enabled business has increased.  In 1994, we were building websites to run on Mosaic. JavaScript did not exist. A 56Kbps line was the most common fixed rate bandwidth available.

Advancements

In 1996, we added managed hosting & cloud and web design & development as formal business units to our service offerings. Along with our managed IT services & network support and IT strategy consulting, these service groups allowed us to offer our clients comprehensive IT support, tailored to client needs.

25th Anniversary

2019 marked our 25th anniversary. We continue to remain profitable with steady growth. This track record is the result of our enduring client-focused, consultative, and knowledgeable approach.

Today

Today, we are not only a leader in IT services but also a Top 10 Mid-Atlantic Microsoft Azure CSP Gold Partner delivering services to organizations across the U.S., and routinely support users in every time zone around the world.

Where We Are Going

Technology change is a fact of life. Who would have imagined the iPad back in 1994? Today we are evolving our business to address managed services, a PC-less mobile computing world, the rapid growth of business-critical applications, and ubiquitous bandwidth. We are delivering IaaS and exploring WaaS while advising more clients on how to transition to the cloud.

Our promise to you and to ourselves is that we will continue to seek out and gain deep expertise about the most relevant technologies to keep you moving forward.
