ACN Technologies (as it is now known) began back in the late 1980’s as a Systems Integration consulting firm, formed by a software engineer by the name of Richard Cole.

In 1992, as the result of business’ demand for information integration, the consultancy moved toward becoming a service bureau, and OPTIMIS was born (OPTical Imaging Management Information System).

Over the years, the Optimis system has been used by multiple Fortune 500 companies and continues to be a mainstay of ACN’s service offerings to this day.
