Founded in 2001, PLANNET Consulting is celebrating a milestone birthday; 20 years of providing clients with technology solutions tailored for their needs! Early on, the company started off as a boutique consulting firm that specialized in VoIP phone systems and call center assessments. As technology continued to improve and progress at a rapid pace, PLANNET began branching out, anticipating the technological needs of mid to large-sized companies, schools, financial institutions, and nonprofit organizations. Far from the adolescent firm that initially specialized in just two areas of information technology, PLANNET now has comprehensive expertise in low voltage technology design consulting, data center strategy, technology design-build, managed services, and critical facilities construction, supported by offices in Anaheim, CA, as well as Phoenix and Tucson, AZ. 2021 also marks the year of PLANNET becoming a certified woman-owned business.
“We are proud of the work we do on behalf of our clients, but it is our amazing team that sets us apart. Many staff members have been with us for 15-plus years, and a few have been here since our inception,” says Andrew Harrod, President and Managing Principal. He adds, “This team is the best in the business and it’s an absolute pleasure to work with them every day; they are the reason that we have been able to hit the 20-year mark!”
The firm began by serving local Southern California companies but quickly branched out nationally, with international work quick to follow. PLANNET customers included large organizations such as Siemens, Disney, City National Bank, and Daimler Mercedes Benz. Clients close to home include USC, UCLA, City National Bank, PIMCO, and Capital Group. Entertainment leaders including NBC Universal, Warner Brothers, DreamWorks, and Hulu have all relied on PLANNET to advance their technology plans, keeping them at the forefront of their industry. PLANNET is very proud of the partnerships created with these firms, with many continuing to use our services today.
PLANNET has also had the privilege of partnering globally with world-renowned architectural firms including HLW, HOK, Gensler, Perkins + Will, and NBBJ, as well as brokers and construction firms. These firms choose PLANNET because of our comprehensive expertise — from the development and design stages all the way through final implementation and delivery of a project.
As an independently owned firm, PLANNET prides itself on offering clients not only the “latest and greatest” in technology trends, but in going the extra mile to understand the unique needs of a business. Regardless of whether your company is a large multi-national, or a small, family-owned entity, PLANNET implements solutions that are tailored to your company’s unique and specific needs. That this is why all of our clients have entrusted their Information Technology needs to PLANNET for over 20 years and will continue to do so for years to come.
