EduCare

Stop Buying Downtime and Invest In Uptime!
HTS EduCare (Available on CES)

Highly Recommended by Loving Municipal Schools

For the past 10.5 years, Harris Technologies has been providing us with Network Maintenance support and configuration. All of their Techs that have come to our district to do the work needed, have been very knowledgeable with what they need to do to keep the network up and running and solving the problems. Whenever we need help they always have someone available to help with our problems. I highly recommend Harris Technology Services for your network maintenance and configuration needs.

HTS EduCare Improves Management of IT Systems

EduCare provided by Harris Technology Services, Inc. has been a major factor in helping New Mexico School for the Deaf vastly improve its management of IT systems. In a rapidly changing technological world, precise skills come at a premium but are also key to keeping IT systems properly maintained. Lack of correct skills translates into issues of all kinds going undetected or being created and technology issues can quickly escalate into major issues and perhaps lead to critical systems failure. Key benefits EduCare provides for NMSD are accurate threshold monitoring; skilled problem resolution; measurable service level; flexibility so that the customer remains in the drivers set; reporting and real-time system access and much more. Because NMSD IT has become more problem free since we began leveraging the benefits of EduCare, we are now more able to make better IT productivity gains for NMSD. When I find something that works in IT, I tend to stick with it and that is our intention with Harris and EduCare.

Outstanding Tech Service

St Bonaventure Mission School

I had a serious problem on April 22 and Harris Tech was able to provide the needed tech service to resolve my problem. If it weren’t for Harris Tech, I would have been locked out an important server and may have even lost all the data that was stored on the server. Harris Tech is an exceptional organization with great techs who know what they are doing. Thank You Harris Tech!

Praise from West Las Vegas

I wanted to take the time to thank Mark Everett, Josh and Zandro for the work they did down here. Both are extremely knowledgeable and give great customer service. It was a bit hectic at times as my schedule is crazy with all the hats I wear around the district and the work Lisa and I have on our plates. Both were understanding and worked with us at IT as well as the staff at the sites to get the job completed. It came out better than I could have hoped for. From the racks to the cabling everything came out very professional.

The Director of the Headstart Program commented numerous times about how things came out. He has zero complaints since the install and all has remained working, which a new experience for him given the problems with previous vendors. Again thank you guys for the great work and I look forward to the next project. You guys do good work!  I’ve been in the business for some time and the HTS team has been an absolute pleasure to work with. Very professional.

Excellent IT Support

Harris Technology Services has responded quickly and efficiently to every need we have had this year. We work with the same polite and helpful people time after time, giving them an in-depth knowledge of our system and needs. I highly recommend them.

There is no company that I would trust more than HTS

I first began working with Harris Technology Services, HTS, in August of 2000 when I became the network administrator of a school district network. The network was large and growing very fast. Harris came in and took the network from several little independent networks and setup the structure that would enable me to grow the network into a fifteen mile fiber optic network connecting five schools using 1500+ computers. The district used HTS for network maintenance during the nine years that I served as Network Administrator and Technology Coordinator.

Mark Harris would come to the district during the summer as the network was growing and expanding. He would help me get the network ready with new services for the new school year. It was always a comfort to know that Mark was a simple email or phone call away. He would always respond that day to any issue that I had.

There were several times when a serious server issue would arise and Mark would drive 125 miles to come and help fix the problem. On more than one occasion, I would leave the office for the day while Mark was working only to come back in the morning to find him still working on the problem. This is dedication to a client.

Nine years in the computer industry is a lifetime, a lifetime off changes and new devices that I had to learn about and use. HTS was always there to help install and configure these devices as the network grew over the years. HTS was always there for consultation on new configurations or services that the staff required. They always allowed me to fully express our needs then discussed different options that would work. HTS never pushed a particular brand of hardware or software.

HTS has a CES contract for purchasing computer parts. I am a very frugal shopper and HTS would always have a  very reasonable price for any parts that I needed. This included the purchase of parts for 2250 brand new computers including 199 inch flat screen monitors for $207,000. That works out to only $88.28 per machine. This was in 2008. Those machines are still in service and will be for several more years.

To work on any network that I manage. All the staff at HTS have various certifications for what they do. Their 24‐7 capability of monitoring makes them the ideal choice for network maintenance. They understand schools and how school budgeting works. Many IT companies demand payment up front and schools cannot pay for services before they are delivered. HTS is school friendly and experts in what they do.

Phone Systems

Need a new phone system or support for your existing one? You came to the right place, HTS installs and supports VoIP and digital phone systems. Our featured products include Allworx, ShoreTel, and Fortinet phone systems.

VoIP - Putting the world at your fingertips

VoIP - Putting the world at your fingertips

Despite the wide variety of business communication options available now, most Schools still rely on phones as their main channel of communications. The telephone has remained a prime fixture in many organizations, but that doesn't mean it hasn't evolved to meet the changing demands of today's companies. Businesses now have multiple phone systems to choose from, and it can be confusing for organizations without a strong tech background to know how to make the right choice for them.

VoIP reduces cost for equipment, lines, manpower, and maintenance. All of an organization's voice and data traffic is integrated into one physical network, bypassing the need for separate PBX tie lines. Although there is an initial setup cost, significant net savings can result from managing only one network and not needing to sustain a legacy telephony system in an increasingly digital and data-centered world. Also, the network administrator's burden may be lessened as they can now focus on a single network. There is no longer a need for several teams to manage a data network and another to manage a voice network. For consumers, VoIP reduces the charge of subscription or usage, especially for long distance and international calls.

Phone systems and Local Area Networks (LAN) have evolved and the same infrastructure can support both Voice and Data along with Video. At HTS we support to technology required to integrate voice systems into your data network. We support a wide range of voice systems including  Allworx and ShoreTel.
