ACS History 1994-2021….. 

Andre started ACS (Andre’s Creative Services) out of his home in 1994. Andre, a geek at heart, shifted his focus away from his thriving hot-tub and pool business to building a computer business. For a while he had clients who had their hot tub and computer fixed all in one service call!  

Soon ACS, built by word of mouth, had outgrown his home. So, in 2001 Andre and Paula, with the support of family and friends opened their first retail location on 5th Street, Courtenay. The retail location brought new clients and the business grew quickly. There are lots of great memories from the 5th street store including all the fun at the Halloween parades! 

In 2006, again with the support and encouragement of family and friends, ACS moved to it’s current location behind the mall. This was a great move, with more space and easier access ACS continued to grow. As technology continued to change and word of mouth in the business community spread, the business clients who were always the core of ACS began to swell. 

In 2009, Thom, another geek at heart, was hired and started running the retail and repair in 2012 so Andre could focus on business clients. Thom’s integrity, good humour and work ethic eventually had him moving into ACS business service support in 2016. Thom is now the technical support for day-to-day issues for business clients. If you see the ACS Spark – it will be Thom at the wheel! 

Andre’s passion nowadays is business consulting. Helping businesses navigate the IT world and discover the right products and services, especially security, that will help their business thrive! After 35 years as a small business owner, Andre is uniquely adept at understanding the time management issues and pitfalls attached to running a business, and how to avoid them, as best as possible.  

Andre and Paula made the heart wrenching decision to close the residential support and sales side of the business in March 2020. During the early days of the pandemic, business clients needed support more than ever and Thom and Andre were there every day to support their businesses and keep things running smoothly despite everything happening around us.  

Paula, always the bookkeeper and business partner, has joined the team in a more formal capacity. It is Paula you will hear on the phone and although she more of gardener at heart than a geek, she can help you to get in touch with the right geek! 

At the core ACS is a service business, although we provide high quality products it is really the expertise gained by years in the IT industry and in business that make the ACS team what it is. In 2021 ACS has rebranded to better to reflect what ACS does: provide IT peace of mind!  

It is that expertise and peace of mind that ACS gives back to the Comox Valley community. Over the years ACS has assisted many fundraisers, community groups and mostly recently our Crushing it for Charity Recycle Program. With the retail store closed ACS is focusing on getting the word out to Comox Valley charities that we provide discounted IT support. We give our IT expertise and help local charities get their work done!  

Supportive and Responsive

“ACS has been monitoring and supporting our systems and software since our purchase of 40 Knots Vineyard and Estate Winery in July 2014.  They advised how to right-size our network system, moved and wired all our equipment, advised on equipment purchases and supported our network through monitoring and providing off-site back up storage to ensure safety of our records.  When my hard drive was about to crash on my PC, they phoned and advised before it happened, replaced my hard drive, and had me back up and running within two days.  ACS staff is knowledgeable, friendly, and very responsive to all my needs.  They also provide great value for their services and fair prices.  I have worked with many companies offering these services through the years, but none have been as supportive and responsive as ACS.”

-Brenda Hetman-Craig, Owner, 40 Knots Vineyard and Estate Winery Inc.

Friendly and Helpful

“I’ve found the guys at ACS to be very friendly and helpful whenever I’ve had an issue or needed new hardware,”

– Hans Peter Meyer.

A Big Bouquet

From the Comox Valley Echo Beef and Bouquets April 29th 2011:

“A BIG BOUQUET to the great guys at ACS Computer Solutions. Andre recently guided this low-tech individual through the purchase of a new tower and Thom patiently helped me resolve a couple of problems with some existing software. I never felt like my questions were foolish nor my problems insignificant. Speedy, efficient service from personable, friendly – and very knowledgeable – staff.”

Speed and Competence

“I’ve been buying computers from ACS for almost 10 years. I have specific needs for my computing. I send Andre the list of what I need, and he makes that happen.  I can’t get that from any of the big box stores. I appreciate the speed and competence of the service I receive. And the one time I chose to buy a computer somewhere else, only reinforced for me how good the crew at ACS is.”

-Carrie Reid, Mostly Salish Consulting

Professional, Expert and Up-to-Date Advice

 “ACS Computer Solutions has always provided us with professional, expert and up-to-date advice. They are always ready to assist us when we’re in a bind and go the extra mile when we have questions for our business needs and concerns. In such a time of rapid technological change, it’s nice to know we can call ACS Computer Solutions and have peace of mind with managing our i.t. needs ~ and they’re really nice guys!”

-Comox District Teachers’ Association

Very Happy…

“We use ACS Computer Solutions for our business and have always been very happy with the service.  They are often able to solve a problem for us over the phone which is super convenient.

I would definitely recommend ACS Computer Solutions to my friends.”

-Tracy, The Home Medical Shop® and Pavia Shoe Co.

 “I own Supreme Convenience Stores and I’m happy to say that I highly recommend ACS computers for all your computer and IT requirements.

They are very quick to deliver and support all of our computer needs. The staff are very knowledgeable and friendly.”

-Jim Cameron

Making This Part Of My Life Headache Free!

 “For the last few years I have given our computer business to ACS. Not only am I happy with this decision for ourselves, but I am also eager to recommend them to anyone who is in need of new computers or computer service. When we required a new server and the provider of our point of sales software told us that we had to spend $15,000 to get us up to par, I was glad to have Andre come up with a solution that cost me less than half.

Thank you Andre and team for making this part of my life headache free!”

-Tomi Wittwer, Comox Fireplace & Patio
