Supplement IT Staff, maintain network and minimize downtime!
In today’s uncertain economy, businesses, educators and governments alike are facing challenges of supporting and maintaining the network and applications with shrinking budgets and minimal IT staff.

After deployment, AMS.NET provides a 30 day workmanship warranty on installation services. To continue coverage after the 30 day warranty period expires, AMS.NET offers Standard LANmate Agreements, Enhanced LANmate Options, Guaranteed Response Plans, Technical Support Packs (TSPs) and our Managed, Monthly Monitoring Service (MMM).

Standard LANmate Agreements

All agreements also include remote and on-site troubleshooting and repair and replacement of failed components.
