By applying both business and
technical skills, we are able to fully grasp your requirements to identify
better performing and more cost-effective solutions.
NTC specializes in helping large organizations improve their data/voice
networks by increasing performance and capacity while reducing cost. The telecom market continues
to change very rapidly with new offerings and opportunities. If your network has not
been keeping up, it could be costing too much and providing too little.
NTC assists organizations in defining their technical, performance, and
business requirements. We then
help them create a technology and carrier strategy to best meet these requirements. We
can manage the sourcing process resulting in vigorous competition among even the
largest carriers. We work with your legal/purchasing team to review contracts for the
terms and gotchas that matter most.
After carrier selection, NTC can assist organizations with project
management. NTC can help establish key performance
metrics and management methods for the updated network. NTC can also update and support backend processes
such as invoice processing and allocation, circuit/device inventory, and configuration
We respect your staff and work with them. They have a full time job to do
and rightly need assistance with major network transitions. Vendors sell their products full time and
may exploit the fact that their customers are frequently overwhelmed with other
activities. NTC restores the balance by augmenting
your staff for the duration of the project. NTC brings experience, a fresh
outlook, focused effort, and a "can do" spirit that assures success. By
applying both technical and business skills, we are able to fully grasp your
requirements to identify better performing and more cost-effective solutions
than those recommended by the carriers or suggested by conventional wisdom.
