“We are currently in our 5th year working with our trusted partners from Net56, and I can confidently say we are in a better position than we’ve ever been in due to their support. Network support and security was a signifcant weakness we identified and when I arrived in the District; now we feel confident that our competent and responsive Net56 friends will solve any problem we may encounter. Superintendents always search for some areas to feel assured and have one less thing to worry about. Net56 in my “comfort blanket,” allowing me to spend my time on other one million things on my mind. They care. They’re skilled. They will build a plan that works with your budget to bring added security and competancy to your technology systems. Please consider this the higest form of recommendation I could provide.”
