Your Technology Cooperative

We live up to our promise of being member driven and technology focused each and every day at NRTC. It starts with a staff of experts dedicated to finding technologies that benefit our members. Because our experts have a thorough understanding of rural electric and telecom providers, they add to our advanced solutions set only those technologies that address the unique challenges of serving rural communities.

We then use the collective strength of our membership to:

  • drive further product development if needed,
  • negotiate the best pricing or terms,
  • and ensure the resulting solution integrates with other technologies frequently used by our members.

When you choose an NRTC technology solution, we’re there to help from feasibility to full implementation. Consulting on integration with existing systems and processes, we strive to ensure your choice is a true “value add” for your entire organization—from your people to your bottom line.

But it doesn’t end there. Once up and running, we make sure you have access to the best resources to listen to you, be responsive to your needs, and, when necessary, work with technology partners to resolve any issues that may arise.

By identifying valuable technologies, developing those technologies into solutions right for your business, helping you implement those solutions and then supporting you for as long as you need help, we live our mission.

Our Mission

To provide solutions that help our electric and telephone members bring all of the advantages of today’s evolving technology to rural America.

Our Values

NRTC is the choice of rural utilities and other partners in creating and supporting technology and related businesses.
