BEST IT SERVICE
Platte River Networks
When customers call Platte River Networks for support with IT or telecom services, they are immediately connected with a human, usually an engineer, in Denver. No voice mail, no eternal hold, no offshore call center. Businesses have been outsourcing their IT services to Platte River Networks for 14 years, and the technology has become more complicated. “If you are a business and you have that one IT person or staff there is no way they can keep up with the hardware, the updates, and have all the certifications,” says David DeCamillis, vice president of sales and marketing. Platte has a staff of 45, and 30 are engineers. “We strive to make our people happy, healthy and engaged. We feel their energy and enthusiasm carry over to our customer base.”
