Consulting & Planning
QNS has knowledgeable, experienced team members ready to listen, consult and plan for your District’s technology needs.
Whether you are experiencing urgent matters; such as, poor connectivity, content management, security/firewall issues or continuing alerts to computer viruses, we listen and assist in your immediate needs as well as formulate a technology plan that fits your District, Teachers and Students.
After 20-plus years serving K-12 Education, we understand that funding technology can be difficult. Over the years, QNS has proven both the desire and ability to work with very small school districts, with very limited financial resources, throughout the Midwest. Upon request, we facilitate a "working meeting" with our Districts' finance/technology committee to create a 10-year IT Forecast.
In order to effectively utilize all available funding avenues, QNS encourages K-12 Superintendents and Business Managers to work closely with your tech director and/or contact an independent Erate Consultant in your area as erate funding programs and educational grants can and often change year over year. Keeping informed on funding options, grants and overall USAC directives can be vital to K-12 technology budgets.
Whether your district needs a complete IT infrastructure rework, an upgrade on wireless access points, deployment of new one-to-one devices, increase firewall protection, QNS schedules Network and Server Team members to effectively complete this work during school downtime-minimizing or eliminating disruption of technology.

"I have greatly appreciated the partnership that we have developed with QNS over the years. You have shown through your work that you are trustworthy and reliable. I know that if we have concerns, we will get a quick and thorough response. QNS keeps us current and makes sound and reasonable recommendations in keeping our technology up-to-date. You are a great resource for the technology requirements for educating and assessing students. The QNS team is also eager to listen and learn about the unique needs of my staff who work with students with disabilities, and ensures that special equipment, software and apps are working. Thank you for all you do! You take the worry out of my responsibility of providing quality technology to my staff and their students."
