Eric’s Crazy Idea
Eric Woodard started working in the IT industry in Utah over 20 years ago. He got tired of the “break/fix” mentality and noticed IT companies had no incentives to prevent IT problems; since they only got paid when things went wrong. As a result successful IT companies only thrived when their clients had major problems and downtime—costing companies thousands of dollars in lost revenue and wasted time.
Eric thought, “There’s got to be a better way.” and in 2011 he founded Protek with the radical idea that he wanted to make money by preventing IT problems; not from client’s downtime.
Eric built his business by creating preventative models for his customers and realized that the less they saw him for “fix-it” visits, the more money everyone made. Through this philosophy, Protek has virtually eliminated our customers’ downtime, security breaches, cloud migration, and compliance issues—all while increasing productivity and satisfaction.
