Benefits of Progent's IT Support for Companies in Akron
Progent's online IT consulting services enable your Akron organization to experience the advantages of on-call, expert IT support without the cost of maintaining an in-house IT organization. Your network will acquire greater strategic value by being increasingly available, efficient, and protected. Benefits to your company include:

  • Seamless virtual expansion of your on-site IT resources
    For most organizations in Akron and throughout Ohio, local computer service providers, whether consisting of independent consultants or a full-time maintenance staff, can deal with the majority of technical problems. On the other hand, serious problems sometimes spring up when your regular support personnel are overstretched or unavailable, and some trouble may be associated with IT products that is beyond the scope of your onsite service personnel. In these instances, Progent's on-call service professionals provide an easy, quick, and budget-friendly way to supplement your local help and to transfer valuable information to improve your capability to handle future issues in-house.

  • Reduced Dependence on Freelance Service Providers
    For network support, smaller businesses often depend on individual freelance service providers. While freelance service people carry less overhead than big consulting firms and can afford to charge lower rates, they are often overbooked, making it difficult to respond rapidly to crisis situations. If an independent consultant is busy with another client, sick, on vacation, or in class, the absence of reserve personnel may force your business to go without assistance during an IT crisis. As your business grows, network downtime and problems with critical applications become more expensive. The money you thought you were conserving on a freelancer can be eaten up fast by lost productivity. Progent provides a ready source of reserve service experts to make sure your network stays available.

  • Create a Solid Basis for Seamless Expansion
    Companies typically begin with an IT system implemented on a shoestring budget. Without a strong infrastructure, slap-dash fixes can get thrown onto a shaky foundation. When a company grows, reliability and scalability problems can impede the productivity of the business. Such poorly designed systems need careful assessment, intelligent strategic planning, and wide technical knowledge to evolve to a system infrastructure able to deliver the stable foundation to meet current business requirements and ease future expansion.

  • Interact with Solution Providers Rather Than Technology Vendors
    Smaller businesses require advice and technical education to negotiate an ever more complicated array of technology options available for accelerating business success and enhancing efficiency. These companies hardly need a computer consultant who is trying to sell a specific vendor's products. Network support and product sales can lead to a scenario where the proposed solution is built around a predetermined technology instead of the true needs of a business. Progent eliminates these conflicts of interest by selling only services rather than products. This allows Progent to align IT expertise with the best interests of customers.
