In 1985, William J. Adams founded Advanced Computer Solutions (ACS), out of his lifelong passion to constantly improve performance and system operation through thorough analysis of proprietary hardware and operating systems. At that time, Bill decided to build and brand his servers and workstations by hand-selecting the best combination of components to maximize performance and system dependability.
Bill first launched ACS out of his home, and envisioned someday offering top-level technology services and solutions to local businesses, a concept that was nonexistent at the time. A mere three years later, his customer base had grown considerably, and Bill was able to hire, train and develop dependable, skillful engineers.
ACS moved their corporate headquarters to North Easton Massachusetts, and along the way, continued building and developing a strong, diversified team of experienced engineers, always instilling the primary goal of providing best-in-class service & support.
By the mid-90s, ACS incorporated into ACS Services Inc., and was being referred by competitors and customers alike. The company became known for resolving issues quickly and accurately, servicing businesses all over New England, which confirmed its position as a leading tech support and service provider in the Northeast. ACS had earned a reputation for delivering top-line solutions within budget. In fact, as their client base continued to strengthen through word of mouth, the team realized they were fulfilling a need, not only for IT experts, but also for trusted advisors in the technology field.
With an average growth rate of 30% per year by 2001, ACS relocated its headquarters again, doubling their office space. The company expanded again in 2006 by leasing space in Cambridge to create ACS Cloud Services Offering, and then again in Marlborough. In 2007, ACS opened a remote workplace in Boston as a satellite sales office, and was recognized by Fast Growth 100 and Inc. 500. They were also featured in CRN magazine as a leading supplier of technology services.
Today, ACS resides in a 10,000 SF TOC (Technical Operations Center) and Data Center, located in Brockton Massachusetts, employing over 30 individuals, with a presence in Marlborough and Franklin, Massachusetts, as well as in the States of Arizona and Florida. Strategic partnerships with key industry vendors, such as Microsoft, Cisco, Hewlett Packard, ConnectWise, and Data Gravity, have helped fuel this hyper-growth and allowed ACS to build its track record of client success stories throughout the Northeast, with accounts being serviced across the United States.
