Overview      |      Management Team

We’re not your typical IT firm.

The Axiom Truth

LEAD WITH INTEGRITY

Simply put, do what’s best for our client and their business.

We do what we say we are going to do, and we deliver our promises on time and on budget.

COMMUNICATE CLEARLY

We communicate our technology strategies and solutions in terms that business professionals can understand.

We remember that business strategies and business objectives should drive your technology solutions—not the other way around.

PARTNER TO CLIENTS

We are not just an IT company; we are a partner to our clients and operate as an extension of their businesses, always acting in their best interests. Whereas technology can often be an obstacle to businesses, Axiom provides clear and efficient solutions that address client needs. We are passionately committed to the success of our clients.


“Axiom has provided strategic direction and transparent documentation that allows
our senior leadership to make informed decisions. More than once,
their strategy department has recommended solutions from other vendors in addition to their own.
This unbiased approach to our needs was exactly what we were looking for.”
– Head of IT, Charter Brokerage


BE TRANSPARENT

Whether we are documenting a helpdesk ticket or providing a detailed roadmap of future technology requirements, Axiom is fully dedicated to maintaining a transparent relationship with our clients. Axiom provides detailed information on all aspects of our support experience to empower our clients to make better-informed decisions.

BE CONSISTENT

Optimal network design, proper implementation and efficient support are the cornerstones of building and maintaining reliable systems. Detailed documentation and knowledge management systems are tools that Axiom utilizes to guarantee reliability. Axiom recognizes that without consistency in documentation and service levels, a network and its users cannot work efficiently.

BE ACCOUNTABLE

An inside joke at Axiom: If it plugs into the wall, we are responsible for either fixing it or ensuring the proper partner firm is contacted to get it fixed.
