Partner Profile: Managed Services Demand Drives Akuity's Growth

Success With Services

It began as a three-person shop whose business mission was building, selling and shipping custom-built personal computers. Nearly three decades later, the company originally called PC-Plus Technologies is now Akuity Technologies, with a heavier focus on managed services.

Today, Akuity – which made this year's CRN Managed Services Provider 500 – has 50 employees and is riding the services wave. "There's a lot more demand for that now," founder and president Steven Cariglio told IT Best Of Breed.
