Anthony, As a 21 year old working 60hr weeks in two jobs, he fixed a co-worker’s PC and received a Thank You card with £30 in – That was his ‘This is it!’ moment. He started researching and found a gap in the market installing home WiFi routers (Broadband providers used to provide only a USB modem or a non-WiFi router- neither of which were very good!)
In an old garage in Ltham St Annes AGT was founded – Anthony would travel around customer’s homes, replacing their broadband equipment with better performing, wireless-enabled devices. It was brilliant to see satisfied families able to use all their laptops and desktop computers (2005 flashback) on the WiFi and this ignited Anthony’s passion to focus on improving people’s lives with technology.
Shortly after, AGT started receiving enquiries from businesses looking for the above service so Anthony started studying servers and their operating systems, qualifying in a Microsoft course in 2008 and as a result, AGT signed their first large business client.
This year saw a big increase on the B2B side – meaning AGT could continue improving the way people work in business using technology.
Over the past 10 years we’ve been joined by William and John (both of whom are now Directors and Owners of the company). William is brilliant with the introduction of innovative and new technology, ensuring our customers take full advantage, including Office 365 and the Cloud. John is the man with the finance brain and ensures we stay cash-flow positive and keeps our budget planning in check and ensures clients aren’t paying too much for licenses and services.
We’ve now moved into bigger premises (see here) and designed our office exactly to our work and culture specifications. We solely focus on making our customers lives better with technology”
