Advantages of Progent's Network Help for Organizations in Washington DC
Progent's remote network troubleshooting services enable your Washington DC business to enjoy the advantages of immediate, enterprise-grade network support without the cost of managing an in-house IT staff. Your network will derive greater strategic worth by becoming more available, productive, and secure. Benefits to your company include:

  • Seamless virtual expansion of your on-site IT resources
    With most organizations in Washington DC, local network support resources, whether made up of independent consultants or an internal maintenance staff, can take care of the majority of network problems. On the other hand, serious problems may spring up when local support personnel are too busy or unavailable, and some problems may be associated with IT products that is unfamiliar to your onsite service people. In these situations, Progent's on-call service specialists provide a convenient, fast, and affordable solution to supplement your regular help and to transfer useful information to increase your ability to deal with downstream problems locally.

  • Less Reliance on Freelance Consultants
    For network maintenance, smaller companies often depend on individual freelance service providers. While freelance consultants have 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 an independent consultant is occupied with another client, ill, on vacation, or in training, the lack of fallback help may force your business to wait for assistance during an IT crisis. As your business expands, network unavailability and problems with vital applications are more expensive. The budget you thought you were conserving on an independent can be consumed quickly by lost productivity. Progent provides an on-call source of reserve support experts to make sure your network remains up and running.

  • Create a Scalable Basis for Smooth Expansion
    Companies typically begin with an IT architecture created on a shoestring budget. Lacking a robust framework, band-aid fixes often get piled on top of a weak foundation. When a network grows, reliability and expandability problems can hinder the success of the organization. These poorly built systems need proper assessment, smart long-term planning, and extensive technical knowledge to evolve to a network infrastructure able to provide the solid foundation to meet critical business requirements and simplify future expansion.

  • Interact with Solution Providers Rather Than Product Vendors
    Smaller offices require guidance and technical training to navigate through an ever more complicated array of technology options available for promoting business success and improving productivity. Businesses hardly need a computer consultant who is motivated to sell a specific vendor's technology. Network support and product selling can lead to a scenario where the proposed solution is designed around a predetermined technology instead of the true requirements of a client. Progent eliminates these dilemmas by selling only services rather than products. This enables Progent to align technical consulting with the real interests of customers.
