Introduction to AVS COMPUTER SERVICES

Welcome, and thanks for visiting.
My name is Vernon Harris and I am the President of AVS Computer Services;  a little background information about myself.  I was born in Deerfield Beach, Florida and spent all of my early years in South Florida. I got an early start in the technology industry during the early 70’s when I started repairing radios and televisions at a time when not a lot of people understood how these technologies worked. At the age of 14, I became a self taught neighborhood repairman; and soon enough people were more than willing to pay for my repair services and technical advice.
I started my first company at the age of 15 (Harris Stereo) and began installing car radios, speakers and amplifiers for the local flea market dealers that sold the equipment but didn’t have any installation services.  I passed out my business cards to the dealers and we started a partnership where they would recommend me to their customers whenever they sold equipment that needed installation services.

My career path has taken many different roads to end up in the world of IT support.  My last career stop before starting AVS Computer Services was at Arris International in Duluth, GA  where I worked as a Senior Applications Engineer and then Product Manager developing products for the technology industry.
AVS Computer Services was founded in Alpharetta, GA in 2001 after I was laid off my job at Arris.  After looking at several career options I chose to leave the corporate world and start my own IT services company.  After all the years that I had spent in the technology sector; I came to the conclusion that it was my hobby of building, fixing and repairing computers and networks that was my true passion.

How are we different?  In the world of IT services there are many who claim to know everything (stay away from them) but rarely do you come across an expert that knows the world of computers and technology from the early days of DOS to the complex systems being delivered today.  No, I didn’t invent the internet but I can make your technology work the way it was intended.  You can view some of my work here.

At AVS COMPUTER SERVICES, We meet all of our clients on the technology continuum where they are today; and help get them to where they want to be.
