Andrew Jensen, Owner and Senior IT Solution provider of Albany IT, grew up in Halfmoon, New York and recently moved to Albany with his partner to be closer to the office and to be in the heart of the area he loves.
Andy was Educated at Hudson Valley and University of North Carolina at Charlotte; making lifelong friendships and contacts at those institutions. Starting small in 2007 and slowly honing his skills as he met and gained new clients as a sole proprietor, the business began to soar. Andrew started Albany IT, as Creative Visionz IT, LLC in 2013 as the business grew. This gave the company a formal identity to market and allow potential clients to find him. With a formal LLC and company name, Creative Visionz IT branched out to servicing multiple location Automobile Dealerships Fire and EMS agencies, Doctor’s and Dentist’s offices, Real Estate Firms, and more.
Starting in the Fall of 2015 Creative Visionz IT began a transition into finding a new name to help identify its local roots and core services. With the help of longtime advisor Peter Carusone the name was born – Albany IT. This new name will almost certainly take the business to new heights – serving Albany’s Capital Region with top level IT services and customer service.

When we opened our second Chrysler Jeep Dodge Ram location in Clifton Park we had a full-time in-house IT guy that we really didn’t need full time – it became expensive and unsustainable. We met Albany IT through their web design services and the relationship grew from there. Today they handle all of our IT sales and support needs including all of our servers, computers and telephones. The car business has a rather demanding variety of needs and Albany IT always responds quickly and talks to us in a language we can easily understand. I’d recommend them to any small to mid-size business.

Albany IT is easy to work with and get results!
This s one of the break-out companies in the Capitol region that ill make it big. Their attention to detail and actually listening to what the client has to say is refreshing and a real confidence builder.
Their knowledge is cutting edge. For an old guy like me, it’s good to have this level of expertise at your fingertips.
We went to Andy at Albany IT to create a website for our furniture business. We wanted a website that would be professional 7 display our furniture like it deserves to be displayed. They did just that & more. It looks even better then expected! Andy worked one on one with us inline Go Daddy or any other lathe internet service where you wait on hold for 20-20 min before talking to someone. He made our experience great & is highly recommended.
Andy has always been there for The Express Newspaper – all I need to do is pick up the phone and he responds to my questions or if I have problems, always within a timely manner. Would highy recommend Albany IT.
