Benefits of Progent's IT Support for Companies in Tacoma
Progent's online technical help services allow your Tacoma company to enjoy the advantages of on-call, expert network support without the cost of managing a full-time IT staff. Your information system will acquire added business worth by being increasingly reliable, productive, and secure. Benefits to your business include:

  • Seamless remote expansion of your on-site support resources
    For most businesses in Tacoma and throughout Washington, local computer service providers, whether made up of independent consultants or a full-time IT staff, can handle typical network issues. However, serious problems sometimes occur when your regular resources are too busy or absent, and some problems may involve technology that is unfamiliar to your onsite support technicians. In these cases, Progent's on-call support specialists give you an easy, fast, and economical solution to augment your regular resources and to transfer useful knowledge to improve your ability to deal with downstream issues in-house.

  • Reduced Dependence on Freelance Service Providers
    For IT maintenance, smaller offices commonly depend on individual freelance service providers. Although independent consultants have less internal costs than larger support firms and can often charge marginally less, they are often overbooked, making it difficult to respond quickly to crisis situations. If a freelance service provider is occupied with another client, ill, on a trip, or in training, the lack of reserve help may force your business to go without assistance during an IT crisis. As your company expands, network unavailability and trouble with vital applications become more expensive. The budget you thought you were conserving on a freelancer can be eaten up quickly by lost productivity. Progent offers a reliable source of reserve service expertise to make sure your network stays available.

  • Create a Scalable Foundation for Seamless Expansion
    Businesses typically start with an information system implemented on a shoestring budget. Lacking a strong infrastructure, band-aid repairs often get thrown onto an unstable foundation. As a company grows, reliability and scalability issues can impede the success of the business. Such badly designed environments require proper analysis, smart strategic planning, and broad-based technical knowledge to evolve to a system architecture that can provide the stable foundation to meet current business demands and ease future growth.

  • Work with Solution Providers Instead of Product Vendors
    Smaller offices need guidance and technical education to navigate through an ever more complicated maze of product alternatives available for accelerating business success and improving efficiency. They do not need a network consultant who is motivated to earn a commission on a specific vendor's technology. Network support and product selling can result in a situation where the recommended solution is designed around a predetermined product instead of the true requirements of a client. Progent eliminates these conflicts of interest by selling only services rather than products. This enables Progent to align IT expertise with the real needs of customers.

How Is Progent Different from Other Service Organizations?
Progent is a Microsoft Partner support firm and Progent's head count, breadth of technical background, refined remote support tools, and familiarity with corporate IT enable companies to escape the pitfalls of excessive dependence on smaller service organizations, individual freelance consultants, or limited in-house resources.
