Staff Augmentation
Hiring, managing, and retaining highly qualified IT skilled professionals with all of the skills an organization might ever need is a challenge facing organizations of all sizes. While some companies might be comfortable having a third-party manage parts or the entire technology environment, many companies prefer to augment their in-house technicians with external IT professionals who can work under their direction and guidance. This allows organizations to have the flexibility to obtain resources when and where needed and also bring in technical resources for projects that require specialized engineering skills that don’t exist internally.
A staff augmentation through NTP can help you achieve your technology goals with industry and technical experience which will accelerate the quality and speed of your project or requirements. You will avoid the cost and time required for internal training and/or skill development.
Our skilled employees will work under your direction to help you develop, maintain, manage, and support your IT infrastructure. This will help you manage fluctuating skill needs, skills gaps, and changing staffing needs to meet your aggressive project timelines. NTP resources work with you onsite or remotely and are certified in a wide range of technologies.

Monitoring Services
NTP proactively monitors your contracted devices 24 x 7 x 365 via our Remote Management tools via an Internet connection between your network and the monitoring datacenter. This Service automatically detects the failed elements that interrupt functionality and also monitors the health and performance of the devices. Incidents or tickets are created by the Customer’s Network Operations team for resolution using standard and recommended severity levels. Performance reports can be generated monthly to assist in evaluating network operations and to determine any action or problem areas that need to be addressed.
