Delivering Value-Based Technology Solutions

Our Story.

Our journey began in 1999 when local information technology companies couldn’t meet the needs of a Little Rock-based accounting firm and its clients. Determined to find a solution, the firm’s partners established Edafio Technology Partners. Launching with exceptional results for our first client, JPMS, we rapidly evolved into a full-service IT provider, expanding across Arkansas and into the midsouth region.

In 2024 Edafio & Ascend Technologies merged to become one of the largest technology services companies in the central U.S.

The synergy of the two companies’ extensive IT industry expertise offers access to a comprehensive and innovative suite of offerings and an unparalleled commitment to enhancing client experiences and offering a holistic, high-value solution set for its clients.
