Advantages of Progent's IT Support for Offices in Akron
Progent's online network troubleshooting services enable your Akron business to have the advantages of immediate, expert network support without the cost of maintaining a full-time IT organization. Your network will derive added strategic value by being more available, efficient, and protected. Advantages to your business include:

  • Convenient virtual expansion of your on-site support resources
    With most businesses in Akron or anywhere in Ohio, nearby network service resources, whether made up of outside consultants or an internal IT staff, can resolve the majority of network issues. On the other hand, IT crises can spring up when local support personnel are too busy or unavailable, and some trouble may stem from IT products that is unfamiliar to your usual support people. In these cases, Progent's online service specialists provide a convenient, fast, and affordable way to augment your regular resources and to transfer useful information to increase your ability to resolve future problems locally.

  • Less Reliance on Freelance Service Providers
    For IT support, smaller organizations commonly depend on individual freelance consultants. Although freelance consultants have smaller overhead than big consulting organizations and can often charge lower rates, they are sometimes overbooked, making it hard to respond rapidly to crisis situations. If an independent consultant is occupied with another customer, ill, on a trip, or in class, the absence of backup help may force your company to wait for help during an IT crisis. As your business grows, network unavailability and problems with vital software become more expensive. The money you thought you were saving on an independent can be eaten up fast by lost productivity. Progent offers a reliable source of backup service experts to insure your network is always available.

  • Build a Scalable Foundation for Seamless Expansion
    Companies often begin with an IT system implemented on a shoestring budget. Without a proper framework, band-aid fixes can get piled on top of a shaky foundation. When a network grows, reliability and scalability problems can hinder the success of the organization. These badly built environments need careful assessment, intelligent strategic planning, and extensive technical expertise to upgrade to a network infrastructure that can offer the solid foundation to handle vital business requirements and simplify future growth.

  • Interact with Solution Providers Instead of Product Resellers
    Smaller businesses need advice and technical training to negotiate an ever more complicated array of technology options available for promoting business growth and improving productivity. They do not need a computer consultant who is attempting to sell a specific vendor's technology. IT consulting and product selling can lead to a situation where the recommended solution is designed around a predetermined technology rather than the true requirements of a business. Progent avoids these conflicts by selling only services instead of products. This allows Progent to align IT expertise with the real needs of clients.

Progent is a Microsoft Partner support firm and Progent's number of employees, range of IT experience, refined support software, and familiarity with corporate IT allow businesses to escape the limitations associated with excessive reliance on smaller consulting firms, individual freelance service providers, or limited in-house IT help.
