About Ayone Computers - an Auckland IT company

Our Story

The Ayone Computers story began way back in 2003, when the business was founded by IT industry veteran, Greg Barber.

Greg started Ayone with the ambition to give small and medium businesses access to the kind of IT support that's usually only found in large organisations. His vision was for a team of expert outsourced IT specialists that could provide quality advice and support in a friendly, professional manner.

Today Ayone, the Albany IT support and service company, has a fast-growing SME customer base and a reputation for sound, innovative, cost effective IT solutions. If you’re looking for top quality IT advice, contact us today.
