Who are we, and how did we get here?
Anchor Network Solutions was founded in 2002 by Vince Tinnirello and started as a one man consulting practice. After working in the hospitality industry for 10 years, Vince wanted a new challenge and one based around his love for technology. So he went back to school to get educated and joined a small IT firm serving businesses across Colorado. After 2 years there he taught Windows classes while contemplating starting his own IT consultancy. With encouragement from friends and family, he started Anchor Network Solutions. The company name wasn’t selected as something symbolic, or to be first in directory listings, but rather as a tribute to his Dad’s business in Florida which also started with the name “Anchor.” He came up with the name on a camping trip and the rest is history!
When Vince started in IT he was surprised at how different things were from the hospitality industry. He found that among small business clients, IT Engineers and Technicians had a reputation for having no people skills, and an overall lack of professionalism. These folks were computer geeks, not business people. When he started Anchor, his goal was to be different-to provide high quality, high touch “Marriott and Hyatt like” customer service to his clients. Further, he wanted Anchor to be a professional services firm that understood that technology was nothing more than a tool for small businesses to use to accomplish their mission. He didn’t want Anchor to be known as “the computer guys” but rather as true technology professionals and consultants that could help their clients advance their businesses through use of technology.
Fast forward to today and Anchor Network Solutions has blossomed into a seasoned managed IT services consulting firm that specializes in meeting the IT needs of small businesses just like yours. We do this by delivering business outcomes through use of technology that our competition can’t, and we do this by following a standardization process that reduces downtime and minimizes interruptions.
