Most educational institutions already have substantial in-house IT departments, but still choose to work with a Managed IT Services company such as Ntiva, in order to help with over-flow work or for specialized projects.
Sometimes this means outsourcing day-to-day IT support so that the in-house IT team can focus on more strategic projects. Other times we're brought in to help with specialty projects such as hardware and software procurement, network and security consulting, or migrations to the cloud.
