Twin Cities IT Consultant

At AK Consulting, we understand small business and the entrepreneurial mindset that gets you going.

We know what it feels like to be totally on board with the idea of skillfully serving clients, and then to get stuck and frustrated with some of the not-so-fun aspects of operating a business. What we’ve learned is you can find talented assistance for your business – taking on those tasks and day-to-day operations that are not one of your strengths — administrative and technical operations that weigh you down and get in your way.

AK Consulting can be your go-to internet and device networking solution partner to tackle all of your tech-related questions and problems. We’re your IT geeks and proud of it!

AK Consulting works with small business owners struggling to meet their IT support needs and are looking for new solutions to achieve their goals for growth and systems security. We help those entrepreneurs who would like to find a consultant offering reliable, cost-effective solutions for spot-on results.

“What distinguishes AK Consulting from call center providers is the personalized service and variety of solutions. Because of this, the business owner receives the technical solutions needed quickly and efficiently.”
