Who are we?
Powell Technologies provides clients with the highest level of IT / computer network service and support possible, while maintaining our integrity as a business, the reliability of our services, and the efficiency of our results. We are located in Johnson City, TN and service the greater Tri Cities TN area.
Our company began in 1992 when Michael Powell took on the position of IT Director for Powell Companies, which currently consists of multiple offices in three states and employs over 500 individuals. At that time, there was no network to speak of. Soon thereafter, company president Jim Powell charged Mike with the task of creating one...with three simple, yet demanding stipulations:
- The company was going to decide what needs the network would meet.
- The network had to be up all the time, with no exception.
- The network had to be as simple and cost-effective as possible.
At the time, Mike thought these demands would prove to be extremely difficult to satisfy, but after several years of refinement, Mike developed a premier network solution that more than exceeded the company's expectations. For Powell Companies, the resulting network proved to be a profitable entity that serviced the very needs of the business.
After a decade of successful results, Mike began to perceive the need of other businesses in the Tri-Cities and surrounding region for such an answer. He, along with his associate Kristopher Ting, decided to offer this answer to other businesses in the community, so they formed Powell Networking Group. They later changed the company name to Powell Technologies, but their goals and mission remained the same...to provide their clients with the highest level of computer networking service and support, and to do so with integrity, reliability, and efficiency.
What do we believe?
It is our strong belief that computer networks must be built to work. They should work on day one and for every day thereafter. Every service that we provide to our clients is done in this context. We believe that the needs of your business define how your network is built. If your business does not need it, we do not do it.
This "keep it simple" methodology services the stability and long term cost effectiveness of our solutions. You should be in control of what is spent, when it is spent, and how it is spent. These are your decisions and you should make them. We serve only as a resource to help you find the stable, cost effective solutions you need to maintain and grow your business. When these decisions are made, you should feel that your money has been well spent and the product is a job well done!
