Net-Tech Releases ‘My Best Practice: PTO’

Pioneering IT program available to organizations throughout Seattle

Seattle, WA – Net-Tech, a full-service IT solutions firm headquartered in the Seattle area, announces the release of its storybook My Best Practice: PTO. Set in a zoo, the book is a lighthearted explanation of how organizations benefit from the best practices followed by Professional Technology Organizations (PTO).

The PTO concept was developed over the past nine years and formalized in 2018 by Net-Tech co-founders Matt Bratlien and GL Dart. Technology had changed dramatically since they started in the industry over two decades ago, but little was different in how IT professionals worked with clients. They sought to create a new classification of service offerings that included more than just labor.

“Our objective was to provide area businesses and organizations with a complete solution,” Bratlien said. "A Professional Technology Organization goes beyond traditional service models to also include hardware, software, and data center management for superior cloud-based solutions.”

Too often, Bratlien and Dart heard about inflated budgets and short-term fixes – discussions that do not align with the role technology should play. Technology needs to be managed with a long-term, business-driven vision, not patchwork fixes.

In My Best Practice: PTO, Bratlien and Dart explain how all clients receive the same high-level of support with features customized to meet their exact needs. As a PTO, Net-Tech fully manages security, systems, and devices for a fixed monthly rate with no upfront capital cost.

The book is now available in print and e-book format for purchase on
