“NSmanageIT is our core outsourced IT product,” says Erin Arnold. “It centers around the 3P’s: people, process and protection. People – we believe in a reverse triangle support model. Process – from onboarding, to ticket resolution, to technology planning, to technology adoption for an entire school district, having a process that is repeatable as well as customized to each client’s individual needs is critical to our success. Finally, Protection – we develop not only the network policies, but we provide verbiage to HR to consider adding to the company manual, we make recommendations based on what is best for the clients, even if it makes our job a bit
more difficult.”
