Managed IT Services
Northeast Information System’s Managed Services program addresses the two greatest risks of investing in new technology — obsolescence and the ongoing costs of utilization.
Keeping the value current
We see it all the time. An organization purchases a voice or data solution based on its features and benefits. Then the vendor delivers the solution and provides some basic training for the staff and then moves on.
With NEIS Managed Services, your systems and software remain state of the art, employees stay current in their training, and the value of your investment to your productivity stays high.
NEIS Managed Services eliminates the risks inherent with a technology acquisition. It’s futureproof, allowing you to take advantage of emerging technologies as they become available and keep pace with your business needs – for one fixed monthly cost.
In short, the program is a complete turnkey solution. It includes hardware along with unlimited technical support, unlimited programming changes, and unlimited training. Even more, it ensures that your system will grow and evolve along with your business while keeping pace with new technology.
Building long-lasting partnerships with every customer
In practicing long-term communications management, we build successful business relationships. We continue to assist clients in creating competitive advantages through implementing working technology plans. These plans are continuously evaluated and revised to accommodate an ever-changing industry. NEIS recognizes the importance of building technology around people, not people around technology.
With our Managed Services Program, Northeast IS truly Partners with its customers. The Program ensures that the technology provided today can be Renewed, Refreshed or Replaced as required. It also enables program participants to have emerging technologies as they become available and needed; always having the latest and most innovative technology to serve your business needs.
