Advantages of Progent's IT Support for Offices in Albany
Progent's online support services enable your Albany business to enjoy the advantages of immediate, enterprise-class network support without the expense of managing an in-house IT staff. Your information system will derive added strategic worth by becoming more reliable, productive, and secure. Benefits to your business include:

  • Convenient remote extension of your local IT resources
    For most businesses in Albany or anywhere in New York, local network support resources, whether made up of outside consultants or an in-house maintenance staff, can deal with typical network problems. On the other hand, IT crises sometimes occur when local resources are overstretched or absent, and some problems may stem from IT products that is beyond the scope of your local service personnel. In these cases, Progent's on-call service professionals give you a convenient, fast, and economical way to augment your local resources and to convey valuable knowledge to increase your capability to deal with downstream problems in-house.

  • Less Reliance on Freelance Consultants
    For network maintenance, smaller businesses often rely on independent freelance consultants. Although independent service people carry less overhead than big service companies and can often charge lower rates, they are sometimes overextended, making it hard to respond quickly to crisis situations. If an independent consultant is occupied with another customer, ill, on vacation, or in training, the lack of backup help may force your business to wait for help during an emergency. As your company grows, system downtime and trouble with vital software become more costly. The money you thought you were conserving on an independent can be consumed fast by reduced productivity. Progent provides a reliable source of reserve support expertise to insure your IT system remains up and running.

  • Build a Scalable Basis for Smooth Growth
    Businesses often start with an IT architecture created on a shoestring budget. Without a robust framework, band-aid fixes often get thrown onto a shaky foundation. When a company grows, reliability and expandability issues can hinder the success of the organization. Such poorly designed systems need proper assessment, smart strategic planning, and broad-based technical knowledge to evolve to a network architecture that can deliver the stable foundation to handle vital business requirements and facilitate future growth.

  • Interact with Problem Solvers Instead of Technology Resellers
    Smaller organizations need guidance and technical training to navigate through an increasingly complex array of product alternatives capable of accelerating business growth and enhancing productivity. Businesses do not need a computer consultant who is trying to earn a commission on a specific vendor's products. IT consulting and product sales can result in a scenario where the proposed solution is built around a predetermined product instead of the true requirements of a client. Progent eliminates these conflicts of interest by offering just services rather than products. This enables Progent to match IT consulting with the best needs of clients.

How Is Progent Unique from Other Service Firms?
Progent is a Microsoft Partner consulting company and Progent's staff size, depth of technical knowledge, refined remote support tools, and understanding of corporate IT enable offices to escape the pitfalls associated with excessive dependence on smaller service firms, individual freelance service providers, or over-stretched internal resources.
