About Us

Our Company

Our company was established in 1999 with a view to providing technology and services to our customers based on the mantra of “doing things the right way – first time”. We offer a full range of services including supply, outsourcing, management and design of all aspects of telecommunications and IT markets.

ACSData is 100% corporate focused. We supply, manage and support hundreds of corporate customers while other Tier One suppliers manage many hundreds of thousands of residential customers. Our key strengths are our focus, responsiveness and ability to tailor flexible solutions at very competitive price points.

ACSData supplies services to organisations across every sector of the market. We also provide services to Hospitals, Airports, Banks and the financial sector. These customers require the highest availability in their mission critical environments. We have a proven track record of providing high quality and high availability service for business essential environments.

ACSData prides itself on its innovation and commitment to customer satisfaction. All engagement with customers is done on a consultative basis to provide the best solution in the most cost-effective way. We are not restricted by who can be utilised as a supplier for any of our customers as all areas of our business can be tailored specifically to meet our customers’ requirements. We truly believe that when it comes to telecommunications and connectivity, the best way to provide this is by finding “the shortest path”. We will design the most direct route to provide the type of environment that customers require. We will always discuss with our customers what our recommendations are and mutually agree on the best outcome.

Our Leadership Team

Daniel Giddens

CEO

Daniel is the Founder and CEO with over three decades of IT Industry experience. Daniel has guided the company, from its inception in 1999, through to it becoming a world class global telecommunications company spanning multiple continents.

He shares his passion and understanding of technology from board level through to the engineer on a data centre floor. This rare ability to link management direction with technology solutions and to articulate this at any level is one of the many stand outs he brings to the table.

Outside of work Daniel enjoys spending time with his wife and teenage children. He coaches his son’s college basketball team and still somehow finds time to play masters basketball.
