Building a Collaborative Culture
We Value Your Time
We plan to avoid problems in the first place, but when you need help, our team responds to and fixes issues as quickly as possible. Our techs answer the phones live and resolve your issues when you call – in fact over 50% of help desk tickets are resolved with one touch. We will keep you on the phone just long enough to troubleshoot your issue (just a few minutes) so you can get back to work fast. Clients can also create a ticket by emailing us or via a portal, and those tickets are reviewed hourly. After hours a live service takes calls and patches them through immediately to our on-call tech so that emergencies can be addressed.
Total Networks has achieved the CompTIA Security Trustmark™, a validation of our commitment to use industry-accepted IT security best practices. We consistently help our clients identify regulatory compliance gaps and address security policies, processes and planning.
We offer tools to train your staff, as well as compliance services to monitor network activity and assist with regulatory assessments.
Planning & Strategy
You cannot afford to be blindsided by risk issues or surprise expenses. Total Networks works together with you to jointly create and maintain an up-to-date, effective written technology plan that identifies areas for improvement, technology options, and forecasts. Our clients are assigned a dedicated account manager. Our clients’ personal account manager assists with plans for growth, moving, projects and an overall technology planning for your company.
Meaningful relationships are the reason we exist. You will have a dedicated account manager and engineer team lead you can count on every day and for regularly scheduled business meetings and proactive site visits.
