Advantages of Progent's Network Help for Organizations in Seattle
Progent's remote network troubleshooting services allow your Seattle business to realize the benefits of on-call, enterprise-level network support without the cost of managing a full-time IT organization. Your network will acquire added strategic worth by becoming more available, efficient, and secure. Advantages to your business include:

  • Convenient remote expansion of your on-site IT resources
    With most businesses in Seattle or anywhere in Washington, nearby network support providers, whether represented by freelance consultants or an internal IT staff, can solve typical network issues. On the other hand, serious problems might spring up when local resources are overstretched or unavailable, and some problems may stem from IT products that is beyond the scope of your usual service personnel. In these situations, Progent's on-call support experts give you a convenient, quick, and budget-friendly way to augment your local resources and to transfer valuable knowledge to increase your capability to resolve future issues in-house.

  • Less Reliance on Individual Consultants
    For IT support, smaller offices commonly rely on independent freelance consultants. While independent service people have smaller overhead than big support companies and can often charge lower rates, they are often stretched too thin, making it hard to respond quickly to urgent situations. If an independent service provider is occupied with another client, sick, on a trip, or in training, the absence of reserve help may force your business to go without assistance during an IT crisis. As your company grows, system unavailability and trouble with critical software become more costly. The budget you thought you were saving on an independent can be eaten up fast by reduced productivity. Progent provides a reliable source of backup service expertise to make sure your IT system stays up and running.

  • Create a Scalable Basis for Smooth Expansion
    Companies often begin with an IT system implemented on a modest budget. Without a proper framework, band-aid fixes can get piled on top of a weak foundation. When a network grows, stability and scalability problems can impede the success of the organization. These poorly built systems require careful assessment, smart long-term planning, and extensive technical knowledge to upgrade to a system infrastructure that can provide the stable foundation to meet vital business demands and simplify downstream growth.

  • Interact with Problem Solvers Rather Than Product Resellers
    Smaller offices need advice and technical education to navigate through an increasingly complicated maze of product alternatives capable of accelerating business growth and improving productivity. They do not need a network engineer who is attempting to earn a commission on a specific vendor's technology. IT support and product sales can result in a situation where the recommended solution is built around a predetermined technology rather than the true requirements of a business. Progent avoids these conflicts of interest by offering only services instead of products. This allows Progent to match technical consulting with the real interests of customers.

Progent is a Microsoft Gold Certified Partner consulting firm and Progent's head count, range of IT knowledge, refined remote support software, and understanding of enterprise networking allow offices to avoid the pitfalls of exclusive dependence on smaller service firms, independent freelance service providers, or limited in-house resources.
