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!  

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.”

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.

Nothing But Good Service and Help

“I have had nothing but good service and help when needed from ACS Computers. Andre and his staff are knowledgeable and always try, and usually succeed, to solve my computer problems. Thanks guys,”

– David

A Solid Company to Work With

 “ACS Computer Solutions is a solid company to work with, the staff are quick to respond to our requests, always ready to problem solve and stick with a challenge until it’s overcome.  To us, they’re an extension of our work family!  They’re a terrific team!”

-Dianne Hawkins, CEO, Comox Valley Chamber of Commerce

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.

“Go See Them At ACS”

 “I must say I am very happy with the work that the ACS team does for me. Consistently time after time they deliver exactly what I need. And the added bonus is that ACS is competitively priced. There has been many times where your team has come through for me in a computer related disaster. There have been several occasions where I am running around town trying to find parts due to a computer failure and when I go into a big box store looking for help they say “go see them at ACS”. That alone speaks volumes for the reputation that you guys have around town. Keep up the good work. By the way I am absolutely loving my two new systems, they came setup as expected and had the quality components I have come to expect from ACS. Thank you.”

-David Gillis, Computers made basic

Solid Technical Advice

“ACS has been giving our company solid technical advice and support for many years, with efficiency in time and cost. Their reassuring support is certainly why I chose to stay with this company; service is everything with computers, it’s how the purchase is backed up later on that makes all of the difference!”

-Susan Healy, Theme Gardens Ltd.

VERY Happy

 “We are VERY happy.”

-Al McGarvey, A.W. McGarvey Law Office

“Step Away….Do Not Touch Anything…Call Thom”

 “As most people, they are great at their skill set and need to outsource the other areas they are not so great at. I would love to be great at everything but I don’t have enough years in my life to obtain the millions of things I would want to learn. One of those areas is the dreaded computer hardware and some software issues. Our office relies heavily on our technology systems and one day without it equates to a lot of work not being done. Thom at ACS Computers is our savior. I really don’t know what we would do without him as I panic the minute the computer tell me to “Step Away….Do Not Touch Anything…call Thom” . Sometimes I can just call their office and Thom can remote in and fix an issue that I have no idea what that foreign language the computer speaks is saying to me. Thom is our “go to” guy but if he is not available then any of the other great guys there can help. All businesses need business “partners” and ACS Computers is one that keeps our business running smoothly.”

-Jan Ashcroft, Ashcroft & Associates Inc.
For all your accounting needs

Solutions That Nobody Else Offered

“I discovered ACS around 2007 – A place where I could sometimes find parts that nobody else carried, solutions that nobody else offered, at prices that not many could beat. Add integrity, add a great attitude towards customer service, and I was hooked! When I opted to rejoin the world with scheduled paychecks, I didn’t hesitate to point my customer base over to ACS. Don’t think twice about calling (say hi to Thom and Andre for me!) and I don’t think you will ever regret it!”

-Andrea FullerT
