“Acronyms have provided companies in Devon, and the wider West Country region, with IT support services for almost 15 years. Not only is the region a fantastic place to live, it’s also a great place to do business. And despite many misconceptions about the South West, it isn’t all about leisure and tourism. The technology sector is strong and growing and there are plenty of budding entrepreneurs across other sectors too.”
Dave Smith – Managing Director and co-founder, Acronyms
Acronyms was founded in 2003 by Dave Smith and Amos Swan. They were fed up with what they perceived to be overselling in the IT industry. Since then Acronyms continue to operate in the manner of their founding ethos – to supply the correct solutions.
Based on Plymouth Science Park, Acronyms provide businesses across the South West, and beyond, with IT and unified comms. This can include IT networking, managed IT support or VoIP telephony.
The company have always been based in Devon, with Managing Director Dave Smith keen to work in the region.
“Devon has one of the greatest quality of life standards in the country. It’s one of the primary reasons as to why we wanted to work in the region. Cornwall and Somerset are also on your doorstep, which only adds to that.”
“What’s more, there’s plenty going on for those involved with technology. Internet connections are some of the best outside of the South East which may surprise some given the perception of Devon as a rural county. The West Country is also a region full of thriving start-ups, many that work in or with technology. They keep us on our toes and challenge the industry to look ahead towards the future.”
