– Alan McDonald on Our Goals

Our Story

Alan (CEO) and Richard (CTO) designed our managed IT services around the prevention of data loss, downtime, and security breaches.  AllConnected’s roots began in 1993 when our founder, Alan McDonald, began a consulting practice focused on the healthcare industry. Back then, we were known as Integrated Computer Systems.

As connectivity continued to have a more significant impact on the way businesses collaborate and access information, we changed our name to AllConnected in 1998.

 AllConnected participates in networking and collaborating with our vendors, our peers, and manufacturer partners at a national and North American level. Our active participation in the Trust X Alliance network gives us immediate access to resources within this group of nearly 400 IT Service Providers, representing over $2B in annual sales, as well as the Ingram Micro Service Network with thousands of certified professionals we can dispatch to supplement projects we manage throughout North America.

Our President & CEO, Alan McDonald, previously served as the Co-President for the VentureTech North American network, and currently sits on multiple advisory councils, including Cisco, N-able, and Asigra. This is one way that we focus on staying very involved in our industry.

Our Core Values

Our company operates on critical core values that form the basis for our relationships, our approach to technology, and our passion to provide great service to our customers.
