Advantage Computer Enterprises, Inc., (ACE) was founded in 1980 as Modern Banking Systems of Kansas. During the first years of its operations, the company exclusively serviced banks across Kansas, Oklahoma, and Missouri. The advent of the PC was the impetus to expand the technical support to PC’s and networks. As our business expanded to support business and local government entities, the name was changed to Advantage Computer Enterprises.
In the 1990’s, Advantage Computer Enterprises acquired Jayhawk Software, which provided utility billing software for rural water districts and municipalities since 1982. This has since led to the development of our software division.
Advantage Computer Enterprises currently has thirty-one employees including the Jayhawk Software division. Our staff includes 10 full time field technicians that have over 80 years combined technical experience, 5 programmers, 2 accountants, and many support specialists. This long term employment and history has provided ACE with a large pool of knowledge and experience on which to draw. The technicians cooperate to distribute knowledge and skills within their group.
