Admin Arsenal was founded in 2001 as a systems management consulting firm. That may sound impressive, but it was really just a way for Shane, Shawn, and Adam to earn money doing Tivoli and Microsoft gigs. It worked really well, but after a couple of years Shane and Adam started talking about creating a systems management tool that would fit well with small to medium companies (another way of saying “for customers who don’t want to pay $50,000 for a system management solution”).
After coming up with this ground breaking idea, Shane and Adam promptly set themselves to ignoring it. They pushed it down. Way down. We’re talking total repression. After another year of denial they came to themselves and decided to move forward. Following several overt threats to his family, Shawn finally agreed to transition the company from consulting to software. In 2006 the coding began and in 2007 we sold our first license of AA Console, a predecessor to our PDQ family.
PDQ Deploy and Inventory came after testing the market waters from 2007-2010.
Admin Arsenal is headquartered at the base of the Rocky Mountains in Salt Lake City, Utah.
