Solutions for Business Spring 2023

4 SPRING 2023 BUSINESS SPOTLIGHT Curt Thornberry, Technology Development Director, said, “I think one of the challenges business owners/managers have with technology is understanding how it can work for them. There are many technical decisions to make regarding security, performance, access, and functionality to support business networks. Without a technical background and with limited time, they struggle to understand how to achieve their goals using technology and broadband access. Panora Fiber has a team of technicians with many years of experience working in a variety of commercial environments. We’ll determine what your business needs and then set you up with the right technology.” Put Our Strengths to Work If your business is in Panora, Guthrie Center, or the surrounding areas, you’re probably already familiar with Panora Fiber. If not, Thornberry shared some of Panora Fiber’s strengths in business technology and IT services: • Demonstrated expertise built on years of institutional and organizational experience managing Panora Fiber’s own servers and network • Trust and recognition built over time — customer by customer, project by project • Local service that’s more convenient and economical than paying distance charges to an IT provider from Des Moines Thornberry said, “There used to be several IT providers in Guthrie County, but Panora Fiber is now the only one. So, if we haven’t helped your business yet, we hope to do so soon. Our technicians can handle virtually any IT issue such as connecting fiber services, setting up new computers, programming phone systems, troubleshooting computer problems, installing surveillance cameras, and building business networks.
