And, since we care about your success, here are some guidelines to consider when selecting a network services partner.


Part of the role of the IT network services provider is to identify and partner with the best vendors in the industry on behalf of you, the client. Be sure you know who they work with, so you know what technologies are available to you.

Office Visit

Before you select your IT network service provider, set up a meeting at their office. Learn more about them and their network services. Do they have an in-house network operations center or do they outsource? How might this affect your service?

Level of Expertise

Many tech professionals have certifications in their areas of expertise. These credentials are important to the success of your IT network service, so don’t be afraid to ask questions. You want to be sure that your service provider excels in the areas that are most critical to your business needs.

Meet the Team

When you are choosing an IT service provider, don’t just rely on the word of the salespeople. They are good at their jobs for a reason—they are smart, confident, and convincing. So, it is important to meet with the technician, engineers, and other team members whom you will be working with on a regular basis. Once you are a client, they are the ones who make the magic happen.
