The I.T. Guru Story

A systems administrator with over 20 years of IT experience, Joseph Axne keenly understands just how mission-critical stable and secure IT systems are in the healthcare field. Prior to founding I.T. Guru, he headed technology infrastructure for the nationwide 9-1-1 dispatch system of American Medical Response, a medical transport company. Lives literally depended on his team’s ability to ensure 24/7 system uptime.

An entrepreneur at heart, Joe leveraged his experience to launch I.T. Guru in 2007 to address the challenges of small- and mid-sized businesses needing technology support and guidance to help them compete and grow.

IT Experts Specializing in Veterinary Medicine and Animal Care Providers

Then, in 2012 Joe recognized the tremendous unmet need for IT support and guidance in the veterinary field, and he and his growing team focused their expertise on helping primary care and emergency/specialty practices to thrive. By specializing, I.T. Guru has developed a deep knowledge of the workflow, products and solutions that veterinary practices need to succeed

As a result, today I.T. Guru is one of the nation’s most respected and trusted IT support vendors in the veterinary industry. With the bench strength to serve practices of all sizes in all 50 states, I.T. Guru provides both remote and onsite services to keep clients’ IT systems safe, secure, and ready for the future.
