Benefits of Progent's IT Support for Offices in Boise
Progent's remote network troubleshooting services enable your Boise company to enjoy the advantages of immediate, world-class network support without the cost of managing an in-house IT staff. Your network will acquire greater strategic worth by becoming more reliable, productive, and secure. Advantages to your business include:

  • Convenient remote expansion of your local IT resources
    With most companies in Boise or anywhere in Idaho, nearby computer service providers, whether made up of freelance consultants or an in-house IT staff, can handle typical technical problems. On the other hand, serious problems might strike when your regular support personnel are too busy or absent, and some trouble may involve technology that is unfamiliar to your onsite service personnel. In these cases, Progent's online service professionals offer an easy, fast, and economical solution to augment your local help and to transfer valuable information to increase your ability to handle future problems locally.

  • Less Reliance on Freelance Consultants
    For IT maintenance, smaller companies often rely on independent freelance service providers. While independent consultants carry less overhead than big consulting organizations and can often charge lower rates, they are occasionally overbooked, making it hard to respond rapidly to crisis situations. If a freelance consultant is busy with another customer, ill, on vacation, or in class, the absence of backup help may require your company to wait for help during an IT crisis. As your business grows, system unavailability and trouble with critical applications become more expensive. The money you thought you were saving on a freelancer can be eaten up fast by reduced productivity. Progent provides a ready source of reserve support expertise to insure your IT system is always available.

  • Create a Scalable Basis for Seamless Growth
    Companies often start with an IT architecture implemented on a shoestring budget. Without a robust infrastructure, band-aid fixes often get piled on top of a shaky foundation. As a network grows, reliability and expandability problems can impede the productivity of the business. Such badly designed systems require careful analysis, smart strategic planning, and extensive technical knowledge to evolve to a network architecture that can offer the solid foundation to handle vital business requirements and facilitate downstream expansion.

  • Interact with Solution Providers Instead of Technology Vendors
    Smaller offices need guidance and technical training to negotiate an ever more complex maze of product alternatives capable of promoting business success and enhancing productivity. These companies hardly need a network consultant who is motivated to resell a certain vendor's technology. IT consulting and product selling can result in a scenario where the recommended solution is built around a profitable technology rather than the genuine requirements of a business. Progent avoids these conflicts by selling only services rather than products. This allows Progent to match IT consulting with the real needs of clients.

How Is Progent Unique from Other Support Firms?
Progent is a Microsoft Gold Partner support company and Progent's head count, depth of technical background, refined support tools, and understanding of enterprise networking enable businesses to escape the pitfalls of excessive dependence on smaller service organizations, individual freelance service providers, or limited internal resources.

  • Information Transfer
    Progent practices knowledge transfer from Progent's consultants to customers. By teaching clients to deal with problems that are within their comfort zone, Progent is able to concentrate on offering hard-to-find skills where Progent faces little competition. Companies who work with trusted freelance service providers or who maintain internal support staffs benefit when Progent passes on information about new technology and tested methodologies to make their IT environments more robust, protected, and productive.

  • Remote Network Monitoring with MS System Center Operations Manager
    Progent is one of the only support firms to provide round-the-clock network monitoring services based on Microsoft Operations Manager.
