About the employer

In 2003 Acronyms founder Dave Smith was fed up with IT companies overselling, so he founded a business with a simple ethos – to sell the correct solution, not the most expensive. 20 years later and this ethos, along with quality of service and a passion for technology, has led us to become a trusted provider of IT to businesses across the South West and further afield.    Our mission is therefore to provide businesses with exceptional, tailored IT and unified comms that are fit for purpose, exceed our clients’ expectations and that our employees are proud of, and we do this by staying true to our core values. After all, they make us what we are, they’ve helped us get where we are today and we’re sure they’ll continue to help us in the future.
