A History in Technology
When Sean Croghan founded XAG Solutions, he wanted the name to reflect the value of both his employees and his clients. Sean’s grandfather had traded silver on the stock market and instilled in Sean that it was a precious metal accessible to the everyday consumer.
XAG, the market symbol for silver, represents the value of our services and their accessibility to the small business owner. After two decades in technology, we know how to fit seamlessly into organizations as an outside department and supply effective, economical technology solutions. XAG Solutions prioritizes long-lasting client relationships, working toward personalized solutions and looking for opportunities to use technology to optimize our clients’ business.
