Wrapping up summer, the Advantage Technology crew came from far and wide to enjoy our annual company picnic! We enjoyed hamburgers and hotdogs with all of the fixings at Coonskin Park in Charleston. Never a dull moment, at Advantage Technology, we really know how to throw a party!
On September 9th, we hosted our friends at Verkada for an incredible night of Appalachian baseball! The Charleston Dirty Birds took on the Lancaster Barnstormers and we rented out the Legends Club so you can watch the game, have a few drinks, and learn all about Verkada’s amazing hybrid-cloud platform that makes it easy to scale physical security, giving you smarter security and safer buildings.
At Advantage Technology, we’ve found that leaders are really having a difficult time with cybersecurity. The topic is difficult, so webinars and presentations just don’t cut through the complexity. So we decided a more intimate setting where we can meet everyone and address individual questions would be more productive. So on August 25th, we booked a wine tasting at Stone House Urban Winery in Hagerstown and invited Arctic Wolf Networks, an industry leader in cybersecurity, to join us. There we met casually, enjoying some wine and answering questions.
On July 21st and 22nd the Charleston Coliseum and Convention center was invaded by technology experts, professionals and enthusiasts as we held the West Virginia Technology Expo! For two days, we had vendors from all over the country showcasing every facet of information technology in the Elk River Hall. Cloud computing, servers, workstations, networking, cybersecurity, data analytics, telecommunication, and more will be represented.
On Wednesday, June 29th Advantage Technology held our first Advantage Lunch in the Morgantown area. We invited our friends at Extreme Networks to explain the giant leap forward that is Wi-Fi 6E. Wi-Fi 6E is the biggest change to Wi-Fi in the last 30 years! But what it all means to businesses takes a little unpacking, which makes it a perfect topic for an Advantage Lunch.
Check out the recap and let us know what thought of the event.
On Thursday, March 31st Advantage Technology held our first Advantage Lunch in the Frederick, Maryland area. We invited our friends at Extreme Networks to explain the giant leap forward that is Wi-Fi 6E. Wi-Fi 6E is the biggest change to Wi-Fi in the last 30 years! But what it all means to businesses takes a little unpacking, which makes it a perfect topic for an Advantage Lunch.
Advantage Technology began with Richard Wilbur III providing IT consulting from a spare bedroom in early 2000. After working for several consumer-driven IT businesses directly out of college, he saw an opportunity to provide groundbreaking, enterprise-quality IT solutions to the business community. He quickly hired staff and moved to a small office complex in downtown Charleston, WV. It wasn’t long before that facility was too small and Advantage Technology moved to 814 Quarrier street where it remained for over a decade.
On January 27th Advantage Technology joined with the Harrison County Chamber of Commerce and local leaders to celebrate the opening of our new office at 1509 Johnson Avenue in Bridgeport. Located in the growing central West Virginia region, this new office helps us quickly address customer needs all over West Virginia. While we had a previous office in the area, this new facility offers more space and quicker deployment to our customers.
It was a great time with an Open House following the ribbon cutting. We all enjoyed a little lunch and showcased the location.
At Advantage Technology, we love getting together for the Holiday Season. This year we held our holiday party at the Charleston Coliseum and Convention Center and it was a lot of fun! Enjoy this behind the scenes look at the party as we wish you and yours a very Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!
