NTI (New Technology Integration) offers 24/7/365 customer service oriented IT support to both business and residential clients. We believe in a proactive and organized approach to IT. All technicians at NTI are handpicked for both their customer service skills, certifications, experience, and high level grasp of technical concepts.

Managed Service Provider(MSP) vs Break/Fix (Firefighting)

Most new clients that hire NTI have for years been using a “break/fix” approach or what we like to call the “firefighting” approach to IT.

While NTI can offer a “break/fix” approach to managing our client’s IT needs, we encourage our clients to implement a more proactive managed services approach to IT. This approach enables a client to budget for IT cost, including recurring maintenance to proactively prevent problems from occurring in the future.

Choosing a a “break/fix” approach can be tempting to a small company with a limited budget, but from experience we have found this approach incentivizes choosing quick, short-term fixes over long-lasting but more intensive solutions, and actually ends up costing more in the long run with a lower satisfaction level.

How much better it is to prevent a fire from ever occurring to begin with than to incur lost wages, downtime, and unexpected repair costs at an inopportune time.

Strategic Planning

It has been said that a failure to plan is a plan to fail. At NTI we whole-heartedly agree with this sentiment when it comes to IT planning. That is why we take our clients through our 10 step process shown in this flowchart. By doing these 10 steps we establish an organized, systematic approach to our client’s IT project(s).

In today’s world there are many points of failure to all technology configurations. For this reason when NTI creates an IT plan for our clients we will not only form it around their needs and wants, but will also make sure it’s focus is primarily on redundancy and security.

After the IT plan is complete the next step is to test the plan in a staging environment to ensure the implementation will be seamless when done in a production environment.

Finally we will implement the agreed upon plan. We will always schedule the implementation to be done at a time that causes the least disruption. For most clients this will be before or after hours so as to minimize downtime during a work day.

Project Management

At NTI project management starts and ends with managing our client’s expectations and excellent communication in-between.

Most IT projects require involvement from multiple technicians along with a variety of vendors, and input from the client as changes occur. This will require preemptive communication skills to ensure that the completed project matches the client’s expectations.

It will also require keeping detailed notes on all project and task information, along with ensuring that the same technician who starts a project is the one who completes it.

In keeping our client-first approach, we direct special attention to updating the priority of task lists with our clients as events change, to ensure their most important tasks are always completed first.
