The Power of Process: Our Story

No more IT worries, ever.

Like so many self-started businesses, Zia Networks began with a passion and a problem.

The passion? All things computers and IT. My team and I are all bona fide computer geeks; a fascination that, for many of us, goes right back to childhood. My own love of tech was sparked when I got my first glimpse of a computer monitor as a adolescent. That passion ignited my career and propelled me through many years in the evolving IT industry, in roles as service manager, chief technology officer, and IT security administrator for various organizations here in New Mexico.

Now for the problem: tech support. Specifically, what I call “shotgun tech support” that only patches up problems rather than getting to their roots. I saw this time and time again as the lead network person and IT security manager for Century Bank. Whenever I had to call in outside vendors to assist with our desktop computers, servers, phone system, or procurement, they came and fixed the immediate problem at hand. But the approach was ad hoc and aimed solely at minimizing downtime. There was no process, no vision, and no lasting results. It was like Groundhog Day. The next time the bank needed tech support, the vendors would rush to find a temporary fix using the same scattershot approach. By prioritizing speedy solutions, we actually ended up wasting huge amounts of time and money.

IT support that works like an extension of your team.

And not just another external vendor working with your business.

That’s when my vision for Zia Networks began to form. I saw a real opportunity to serve New Mexico by offering a different kind of IT and tech support that would function, not as a band-aid, but a business asset. One that would truly solve problems and improve clients’ lives — and livelihoods. I used my experience working for banks and other major organizations to create a business roadmap, guided by the question:

What does a business IT infrastructure need to be both stable and secure?

The answer turned out to be simple: process. Building and maintaining solid IT infrastructure all comes down to having good processes that are proven, repeatable, and predictable. Add in a team of experts who know those processes inside and out and you’ve got a winning strategy for auditing systems effectively, pinpointing problems reliably, and implementing lasting solutions.

I built Zia Networks on these pillars and hired top-notch talent who shared its vision and values. We launched in 2014, and Century Bank went from being my employer to my first managed contract client.

The Zia Difference: What You Can Expect From Working With Us

As we approach close to a decade in business, proudly serving dozens of New Mexico businesses, we’ve got IT support down to a science.

It all starts with your business: your purpose, your goals, and your unique way of doing things. Because a one-size-fits-all approach simply can’t deliver the kind of specialized support that each business needs to make the most of their IT infrastructure. The way we see it, it’s not enough to just make sure your tech is up and running — your tech should be optimized, customized, and primed to accelerate your business. Making this happen is an ongoing effort, with regular network checks to ensure that systems are secure and up to date and backed by detailed documentation, including policies, procedures, and best practices, so we can maintain that peak performance at all times.

We never forget that our valued clients have tons of options for their IT support. That’s why we focus on offering a superior service that delivers real value, with the kind of personal touch only an intentionally small firm can provide.

Here’s what makes the Zia difference:

  • We’re a small team with extensive expertise

As a small team, we have the privilege of being on a first-name basis with our clients, whether it’s a five-person operation or a nationally recognized brand. Our combined expertise allows us to offer the latest systems tech used by big corporations, without sacrificing one-on-one service with a smile.

  • We manage our client roster with care

We don’t spread ourselves thin trying to serve as many clients as possible. We take the time to ensure that every new account we take on is the right fit and can genuinely benefit from our service. That way, when our clients need us, we’re ready for action — not scrambling to squeeze another ticket into an overflowing queue.

  • We answer on the first call

Well, most of the time. We do our best to pick up each and every client call before it goes to voicemail. But on the rare occasion that it does, we’re on it ASAP. This fast-response time is more than just a guarantee — it’s written right into our service agreement.

  • We think things through

We take the time to find the right solution for your business, not just the quick one. When a client has an IT issue, we consider their needs, network, and software, rather than just throwing ideas at the wall to see what sticks. As a team, we have daily check-ins about every client on our roster, so we know the ins and outs of their business, from their routers to their RAM.

  • We’re one of New Mexico’s best-kept secrets

We have offices in Albuquerque and Santa Fe, but we keep a low profile. Why? To avoid foot traffic and other distractions that might interfere with serving our clients. What’s more, we’re a homegrown business committed to serving our local community. Every member of our eight-person team is proud to call New Mexico home, so our clients never have to worry about their call being bounced to another state or overseas.
