Our Story

In 2008, ACT360 founder Adam Bowles finished high school and wanted to put his interest in technology to work, so he posted an ad for consumer computer repair. He spent 2 years serving local companies out of his basement before applying to Georgia College’s “WBAN” program in 2009.  

While attending school, he found that there were many freelance jobs on the school website, and applied for and won all of them. He was so busy during the first coop period that he worked through it himself; by the second coop period, he was hiring other students.  

In Adam’s second year of business, Adam hired Jeffrey Bowles to take over the IT side and the company’s third employee, Adan Silva came on a year later. Nathan, another college peer, joined for a co-op, and now 10 years later is back working for ACT360.

In 2016, we rebranded Affordable Computer Techs to ACT360, at which point we introduced our MSP program and strategic IT services beyond mere “break fix” to help mid-sized companies, government agencies, and schools with their technology.
