Like Part of Your Company

Ascension Technology was founded in 2002 on one simple principle: that businesses deserved an IT support team that would think like a part of the company and bill like an affordable vendor. That vision has helped us grow with a team of professionals and affiliated experts, serving many companies throughout the country.

From the beginning, our goal was to help small and medium-sized companies do more with current technology while looking towards the future of computing. That’s where our name, Ascension Technology, comes from – it reminds us that with the right IT partner, we will “Elevate Your Business.”

We think far too many IT providers get hung up on selling clients the latest gadget or platform. Instead, we see different pieces of technology as tools for specific jobs. Some can be used to increase speed and communications, others help with security, data storage and cost-cutting. We don’t want you to worry about the tools you don’t need, or can’t afford, which is why we explain every service and recommendation in common sense terms so you know exactly what you’re getting from us and why.

Ascension Technology currently employs technicians and a network of affiliated hardware, software and cloud based experts to meet our clients’ needs, no matter what they might be. We have in-house expertise with Windows, Apple, Citrix, Linux, Unix, and Firewall or VPN issues. No matter what kind of IT support you need, we’re standing by ready to step in and assist you.

Give us a call today at 303-791-8009 to get immediate assistance or learn more about our extensive business support services.

Meet the Ascension Technology Team

Todd Glantz

A proud US Navy veteran, Todd specialized in digital gunfire control systems while serving. After entering civilian life, he earned a degree in lasers and robotics. That led to a career opportunity with NCR (later AT&T), where he performed component-level troubleshooting and repair.

As the world of electronics began to evolve rapidly, Todd found a position with a small IT services firm that involved direct contact with clients and customers. While he had found his home working alongside business owners and managers, it took another stint with a local technology service provider before he decided to pursue his dream and launch his own firm. In that moment more than 15 years ago, Ascension Technology was born.

These days, Todd stays busy keeping up with the latest tech trends, supervising employees, and maintaining strong client relationships. His goal is to not only service hardware and software, but to provide exceptional service to every project. He also believes strongly in giving back to the community, regularly donating time and resources to The Wounded Warrior Project, Denver Rescue Mission, and the Denver Dumb Friends League.

When Ascension Technology began to grow, she realized the company needed someone with a business background and non-technical perspective to step in and help. So, Traci took on an ownership position and picked up the task of managing the financial side of the business. Through her hard work, the company has been able stay on top of the accounting challenges that come with expanding any small business.

Away from the office, Traci supports local charities such as The Denver Rescue Mission and ASPCA. She also assists in fundraising for the Denver Dumb Friends League.
