We don’t sell technology. We help you buy IT.

ACLIVITI co-founders Joe Rice and Ryan Young cultivated and fined-tuned their business technology expertise in both enterprise network and datacenter environments. In doing so the pair recognized a glaring need for client-side decision support in transforming enterprise IT from lethargic, rigid, cash-consuming models to more agile, cost-efficient As-a-Service solutions focused on business outcomes. Rice and Young exude a contagious passion for rationalizing IT investments and helping IT leaders make better informed, confident, and timely decisions. The ACLIVITI approach to problem solving, even-handed analysis, and attention to detail reflects that vision in every area of the business.

You have the vision. We do the math.

ACLIVITI invented the APEX™ Technology Value Rationalization framework so you can seamlessly transition from legacy systems to As-a-Service technologies—like SD-WAN, UCaaS, CCaaS, BDaaS, Managed Hosting—in an accelerated, data-driven, and cost-conscious manner.

Procuring technology is traditionally a seller-centric, inefficient process. Under the old model manufacturers either sold direct to the enterprise or through distributors or value-added-resellers (VARs). Doing so minimized the OEM’s cost of sales and marketing but in most, if not all cases increased the end cost to you—the buyer. It also introduced a new layer of complexity and confusion.

ACLIVITI helps you buy technology solutions more efficiently. We even developed a data-driven, fact-based framework that supports and guides your critical decision making at every step of the way. To learn more, click on the Apex™ link.
