ACG Survives Hurricane Matthew

14 October 2016

After a harrowing few days, ACG employees are all back home in Florida. Everyone is present and accounted for with no injuries! We all have some damage at home, some worse than others, but we are all thankful that it wasn't worse.

 

The company came through with flying colors. Due to our cloud-based services and our redundant servers and off-site back-ups, ACG customers and partners suffered no interruption in services.

 

Thanks to all for your support and concern during this time. ACG and St. Augustine are stronger than ever.
