“Prior to contracting with the ESC for IT support, I was changing IT personnel roughly every 18 months. This led to a piece meal approach to our technology needs. Additionally the IT personnel we had were either competent in hardware or networking, not both. Now I have the best of all worlds. I have support and expertise in hardware, software, networking and most importantly SOLUTIONS.”

Region 18’s Tier II support level offered during the 2013-2014 school year has been quite beneficial for us at MWPISD. Being a 1 person technology department, Region 18’s support has helped to fill in the void presented by an absence of staffing. A further benefit that we have made use of is the knowledge and talent base that Region 18 has to offer. Their special aptitude in working with our various server systems as well as their ability to configure the mixture of our network switching systems has made the job much more satisfying. It is most comforting to know that at the other end or the phone line, Ethernet line, or firm handshake I have the ability to readily tap over a hundred years of combined computing experience.
