Helping Your Business Get More Out Of IT
Technology is a fact of life in growing businesses these days. In response, countless IT firms have sprung up around the world. Yes, we are one of them—we provide technology solutions and services to businesses of all sizes and specialties—but at Aqueity, we do things differently.
How Are We Different?
Our business is built on two cornerstones: proven experience and extraordinary service.
There’s only one way to earn the experience: to spend years “in the trenches,” tackling projects and configuring systems firsthand. Since 1996, Aqueity has been providing premier technology services and business consulting to hundreds of Chicago area clients. Along the way, we’ve developed strong expertise in all aspects of IT support, from setting up complete network infrastructures to handling server migrations, data backups and everything in between. We’ve built a team of friendly, innovative specialists who have extensive knowledge of the latest technologies.
Every company has unique IT needs, and there’s no such thing as a “one size fits all” solution. When we partner with a client, we become their full-time IT department, always available to assist with monitoring, troubleshooting, installations, upgrades, and any other tech-related need. When you call Aqueity, you’ll be greeted by a courteous, professional specialist with the tools and training to meet your needs.
