The concept of ASCII is simple. What sets The ASCII Group apart is that it is a community open to all independent IT practices – ranging in size and scope from a single person operation to large companies with many employees.
A common tagline that is used by The ASCII Group is, ‘Leverage the power of an interactive community’. For the past 30 years, The ASCII Group has celebrated the solution provider and heralded the benefits of working within a community by offering over 70 programs that provide innovative business building strategies and extensive peer networking.
