Work with an IT provider that does more than just provide a one-size-fits-all service. Next I.T. provides custom-tailored IT managed services including cybersecurity, consulting, and cloud solutions.
WE’LL DESIGN AN IT ENVIRONMENT THAT MAKES THE GRADE
You’ve dealt with the familiar education technology challenges for years: limited IT budgets, cybersecurity risks, FERPA compliance, etc. Today, you’re battling those challenges while also addressing new ones: supporting distance learning, implementing virtual classrooms, and finding the ideal tools for students and faculty both in class and online.
With a push towards digital learning, the academic industry is placing a greater burden than ever on your school to keep up with the ins and outs of IT solutions and cybersecurity. So why not work with a trusted partner? At Next I.T., we’ve been customizing and managing IT environments for organizations of all types—including schools and universities—for over 20 years.
GET MORE FOR YOUR SCHOOL’S IT BUDGET
How confident are you that the hardware and software solutions your institution has deployed are the best tools for the job—and the most cost-effective? Are you certain that your school’s internet provider, phone carrier, and EdTech vendors are charging you fairly for their services?
As a professional in education, you’re already juggling serious responsibilities—not to mention worrying about keeping your networks up and running to ensure a reliable learning environment, while also protecting your students’ data privacy.
Dealing with these all-important tasks leaves you little time to evaluate your IT infrastructure and determine whether you’re receiving the most for your school’s tech budget. That’s where weNext I.T. have years of experience with vendor management and optimizing IT environments for our academic clients—ensuring they have the ideal toolset for their needs, without overpaying for it.
CREATE THE OPTIMAL DIGITAL LEARNING ENVIRONMENT
Because the 2020 lockdowns went into effect so suddenly, chances are your school found itself needing to sign up for new digital curriculum tools (messaging apps, video software, tablets, laptops, etc.) without time for your typical vetting process.
But considering that many of these new solutions will be with your institution for the foreseeable future, it’s worth re-examining them—both individually and in terms of how they work together—to ensure you’re running a digital learning environment that’s right for your school’s needs.
Let conduct a thorough review of your remote-learning tech stack—hardware, software, network communications services—to determine if the environment is set up optimally or could be improved with better solutions or simply a few tweaks from your existing vendor. We’ve done our homework and for years have successfully worked alongside educators to support remote learning and cloud solutions.
BRING YOUR EDTECH STACK INTO FERPA COMPLIANCE
As if the pandemic quarantines didn’t give you enough to worry about, your institution is still required to safeguard students’ privacy under FERPA—while at the same time enabling many new forms of communications (video classes, online chats, cloud file sharing) that could actually undermine your compliance.
But Next I.T. can help. Many of our longest-standing clients are the federal agencies responsible for enforcing these data-privacy regulations. In fact, you could say compliance is one of our favorite subjects.
Our experts will conduct a comprehensive evaluation of your school’s IT infrastructure—including both your digital-learning environment and your traditional data management processes—and identify any areas where your school falls short of regulatory compliance. Then our experts will use their years of experience to help you bring all of your practices up to FERPA’s standards.
RECEIVE 24/7 SUPPORT FOR YOUR SCHOOL’S IT ENVIRONMENT
No matter how dedicated you and your team are, you can’t monitor every aspect of your school’s IT infrastructure around the clock. But we can.
When you partner with Next I.T., you appoint a group of experts to keep a watchful eye on your technology environment every minute of every day. We’ll monitor the health of your networks, the security of your systems and data, and the status of your school’s compliance with relevant security regulations. We can even manage the relationships with your tech vendors to ensure they’re providing you with the optimal service your school deserves.
And if your team ever needs help with your technology environment, you’ll be able to reach a highly trained Next I.T. tech support expert day or night, 365 days a year.
PARTNER WITH AN IT EXPERT YOU CAN RELY ON
For over two decades, Next I.T. has served clients responsible for protecting sensitive communications and data—from K-12 public and private schools to higher ed colleges and universities. We’ve also helped these institutions stay on the right side of data privacy regulations.
But perhaps most importantly, we’ve given all these organizations the peace of mind that their IT services will be there when they need them, keep them protected against cybercriminals, and empower their teams to work as efficiently and productively as possible.
We can do the same for you.
