Why Managed Services?

You can afford to have your own IT department.

Having IT professionals looking after your updates, security and back-ups keeps your business running smoothly, your data secure and gives you professional and friendly support if anything does go wrong.  

Managed services are cost effective because we do not need to charge you an hourly rate, we have many clients that all have similar needs, and we meet those needs at the same time! If something does go wrong, you receive prompt service from a local company you can trust. 

Personalize service from a local company, with world class software and hardware to support your business goals. Sounds good right? 

But do YOU need it?

Here are a few questions to help you make that decision, you can also book a Business IT consult if you would like a review of your needs and discover what solutions we can provide

What if?

What would happen if your computers didn’t work anymore?

Can your business operate without computers? If you are like us, you may as well shut your doors if your computers aren’t functioning. This used to be the case when the power went out, now for most people it’s also the case when the computers are down.

What can cause computer down time?

    • Hardware failure (some physical component of your computer fails)
    • Human error. One wrong click on the internet. One wrong file deleted
    • Viruses
    • Hackers

How long can you go without your computer and/or your data?

    • Can you be down 2 weeks? 1 week? A day? Hours?
    • How much will down time cost you
    • What if you could never get your files back?

What can be done to prevent or at least reduce the risk of this happening to you?

  1. Create a risk tolerance plan for your business.
  2. Keep up on your critical updates (windows and other software).
  3. Keep antivirus functioning and up to date.
  4. Do preventative maintenance.
  5. System monitoring (so things can be fixed before they cause problems).
  6. Web protection (block known bad sites and such)
  7. Backup. Backup!

Most of this can be done by you or your in-house staff.  Things to consider are:

    • Staff time costs? (what does 15 to 30min per computer everyday add up to?)
    • Are they actually doing it?
    • Are they doing it right?

Or we could look after these things for you!

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.

My Go-To

 “ACS Computer Solutions has been my go-to for my business’ computer needs for over 7 years. Time after time, they provide friendly, timely and prompt service, and have always been able to help with whatever I’ve needed. From hardware to advice and everything in between, they are my trusted local source. Thank you ACS!”

-Shelly Stanchuk, Tailfeather Graphic Design

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

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.

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.

ACS Keeps Me Operating

“I run a small – but with customers in many time zones world wide – oil well-log interpretation​ service in Merville.  ACS has built five custom computers for me.  The first with 8 GB of Ram, Then 16 GB of Ram, then 24 GB of Ram, then 96 GB of Ram and the last one was 512 GB of Ram.  My Grandsons now use them all except the last three: these are used in my business.  Occasionally, the computers will come up with glitches.  I take it in to ACS and say I have no idea what is wrong but I need it back running this afternoon.  They also comply as fast as possible.  ACS keeps me operating and I sure appreciate them being available!”

-Bob E.

Calm and Helpful Attention

“I have purchased my last 3 computers from ACS and have been happy with the service, products and help. When I have wanted to beat my computer up, I have received calm and helpful attention and the problems have been solved. ACS offers what I want from a computer store reliable service that can be trusted.”

– Ruth

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.

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

Peace of mind!
