As Fort Worth’s IT Solutions leader since 1997,

TriQuest Technologies supports business customers in every industry – nonprofit, legal, arts and culture, construction, finance, engineering, professional service firms, and religious organizations.

TriQuest Technologies specializes in supporting CFOs and controllers who are responsible for directing and managing the IT support within their organization. Technology is everywhere, but every business is unique. We help customers utilize technology and be more effective in their work – while keeping their critical systems and data safe and secure – by consistently delivering reliable IT solutions. The result is IT that just works – when, where, and how you want it.

Gary Tonniges Jr, CPA, founded the company in 1997 and serves as its CEO. He graduated with an accounting degree from Texas A&M, earned his Certified Public Accounting license, attained an Executive MBA from TCU, and maintains numerous technical certifications. His wife, Cyndy Tonniges, graduated from Texas A&M with a Business Analysis degree. She maintains her Senior Professional Human Resources (SPHR), Myers-Briggs (MBTI) and Fundamental Interpersonal Relations Orientation (FIRO) certifications. She leads the company’s Marketing and Membership departments.

Gary’s goal from the beginning was to deliver service that’s consistently greater than the sum of its parts. Also known as “The TriQuest Way,” this focus provides every customer with the competitive advantage of having reliable, responsible, right-sized IT that can grow, change, and adapt as their business evolves.

Where Did “TriQuest” Come From?

Soon after Gary’s realization that clients needing IT support were not calling an accounting firm for help, Gary and Cyndy were backpacking the Maroon Bells 26-mile loop outside Aspen, Colorado. After waking up the first morning with a view of a crystal-clear mountain lake at 14,000 feet, the idea crystalized in Gary’s mind: he would start his own IT services and technology support company. Taking several customers, Gary left the accounting firm with Cyndy’s support, the partners’ blessing, and his division’s two employees. The name “TriQuest” was derived from the three daily standards of operational excellence and the team of three starting a new adventure, or quest. “Technologies” was added to identify the industry.

The TriQuest Technologies Mission Statement

Our Knowledgeable Team Provides Exceptional IT Services

TriQuest’s 3 Daily Standards Of Operational Excellence

A customer’s ongoing success is based on TriQuest’s company-wide dedication to our three daily standards of operational excellence:

  • Teamwork
  • Learning
  • Planning

We refer to our office as the Clubhouse because it was designed to foster Teamwork and create an environment where all perspectives are welcome, and the best idea wins – ensuring our customers benefit by experiencing optimal solutions built upon reliable, secure technology.

To keep pace with our fast-changing industry, we prioritize continuous Learning, or CPE (continuing professional education). Every member of the TriQuest team annually invests over 200 working hours in professional learning and technical skills development. Our in-house Learning Center hosts regular educational events and includes a fully developed IT training lab and workroom to ensure technical skills and vendor certifications are kept leading-edge. This enables us to deliver up-to-date technical support to our customers.

When TriQuest started in 1997, computers barely supported multimedia, files were on isolated machines or on primitive local area networks, and the Internet was practically nonexistent. Today everything’s connected – security systems to telephones to HVAC controls to electronic data and all things in between. Making certain that everything works together – reliably, effectively, and securely – requires careful Planning.

So, whether we are helping Performing Arts Fort Worth/Bass Performance Hall provide exceptional experiences for hearing-impaired audience members; ensuring the lot-tracking systems used by Renfro Foods, Inc., are powerful, secure, and state-of-the-art; or providing secure systems for the Walton Group employees to work from home while keeping client data secure, TriQuest always keeps planning front and center.

These three daily standards of operational excellence – Teamwork, Learning, Planning – enable TriQuest to provide the same level of high-quality service to every customer, big or small. We customize IT solutions for your business by working together and using proven technology systems – building reliability and security into every layer of your IT system. TriQuest delivers reliable IT solutions: IT that just works – when, where, and how you want it.

7 Reasons CFOs And Controllers
TRUST TriQuest Technologies To Support
& Secure Their Networks

We specialize in supporting CFOs and Controllers responsible for directing and managing the IT Support within their organization.

Are you tired of working with IT Consultants that don’t know how to SPEAK TO YOU IN TERMS YOU ACTUALLY UNDERSTAND? Are you frustrated by continually receiving insufficient answers to seemingly simple questions, like “WHAT SHOULD MY IT BUDGET BE FOR NEXT YEAR?” At TriQuest Technologies, we believe CFOs and Controllers who are responsible for making their organization’s strategic IT support and security decisions are severely underserved—and WE ARE HERE TO HELP. We aligned our company to focus on supporting financial professionals throughout Tarrant County. We want you to look forward to calling your IT Consultant, someone for you to collaborate on future decisions about IMPROVING YOUR NETWORK SECURITY AND PRODUCTIVITY.

Our Founder & CEO Is The Current TXCPA-FW Treasurer And On The TXCPA Board of Directors.

ARE YOU FRUSTRATED with IT Consultants that NEVER BACK UP THEIR CLAIMS even though they swear they’ve worked with companies “just like yours” and tell you how they’ll be different than the last guy, only to quickly REVEAL THEIR LACK OF EXPERTISE? Our CEO, Gary Tonniges Jr, CPA UNDERSTANDS YOUR BUSINESS CONCERNS BECAUSE HE OWNS A SMALL BUSINESS, and HE SPEAKS YOUR LANGUAGE BECAUSE HE IS A CPA. He knows BUSINESS TECHNOLOGY REQUIREMENTS and the FINANCIAL PARAMETERS necessary for small businesses. Gary is actively involved at the local (current TXCPA-FW Treasurer) and state level of TXCPA (Board of Directors). Gary previously served as Chairman for both the TXCPA-FW and TXCPA Business & Industry Committees and he frequently speaks to audiences about protecting yourself against today’s cybersecurity attacks, IT tips & tricks, and using technology to improve efficiencies.

Each Of Our Technicians Exceeds 200 Hours Of CPE Per Year.

Other IT companies promote "on the job" training, meaning their techs are EXPERIMENTING on YOUR network. Worse, they charge you for their employees to learn—this is a great deal for them but a TERRIBLE EXPERIENCE FOR YOU. At TriQuest, we think this is a downright UNETHICAL practice. We ensure EVERY TRIQUEST TECHNICIAN spends 200+ CPE HOURS ANNUALLY—4 hours of continuous learning every single week, 52 weeks a year—on technical and professional CPE to improve their technical ability to support your network BEFORE they are ever allowed to lay hands on your equipment.

TriQuest Technologies Achievements

TriQuest has been recognized a number of times over the years for its sustained growth, ethical business practices and leadership – in both technology and business. “It’s a testament to the trust and partnerships we’ve built with our customers,” says CEO Tonniges, “and is the most compelling evidence I know that entrepreneurship is still the lifeblood of the American economy.”
