Advanced Technical Solutions (ATS), LLC is celebrating 10 years of excellence. Owners Gary and Brian Sims started this central West Virginia computer technology provider in 1999. They realized early on that to move forward and stay current with fast-paced developments in the information technology industry, they would need to train and certify their employees in cutting-edge technology.

Working with WorkForce West Virginia to obtain training funds for existing employee training has enabled ATS staff to master very specialized skill sets and to expand and develop areas of expertise. For example, Travis Cassell, an ATS telephony engineer, has attained the highest level of professional certification from Cisco Systems, Inc., a leading supplier of networking equipment and network management for the Internet. Cassell joined the elite group of Cisco Certified Internetwork Experts (CCIE™) and is one of only 1,039 people in the world who has obtained this certification.

ATS has expanded its reach beyond the borders of West Virginia. It became the first West Virginia-based company and the 27th Cisco partner in the U.S. and Canada to be recognized as an Authorized Technology Provider (ATP) in the Unified Contact Center Enterprise (UCCE) marketplace. This designation places ATS among industry giants on a national scale, and provides opportunity for continued growth.
“WorkForce West Virginia’s support of ATS has significantly increased our business opportunities in that we have a steadily growing staff with the expert credentials necessary to be competitive nationally.”
