Benefits of Progent's Network Help for Businesses in Albany New York
Progent's remote support services allow your Albany organization to realize the benefits of immediate, enterprise-grade IT support without the expense of managing a full-time IT organization. Your information system will acquire added business value by being more available, efficient, and protected. Advantages to your company include:
- Seamless remote expansion of your local IT resources
For most organizations in Albany New York, local computer support resources, whether represented by freelance consultants or an internal maintenance staff, can deal with typical technical issues. On the other hand, serious problems sometimes occur when your regular support personnel are overstretched or absent, and some problems may stem from technology that is beyond the scope of your local support people. In these situations, Progent's on-call support specialists offer an easy, quick, and affordable solution to supplement your regular resources and to convey useful information to improve your ability to resolve downstream issues locally.
- Less Reliance on Individual Service Providers
For IT support, smaller businesses often rely on independent freelance consultants. While freelance service people carry less overhead than larger support companies and can often charge lower rates, they are often overextended, making it impossible to respond quickly to urgent situations. If a freelance service provider is occupied with another customer, ill, on a trip, or in class, the lack of backup personnel may require your business to wait for help during an emergency. As your network expands, system unavailability and problems with critical software become more costly. The money you thought you were saving on an independent can be consumed quickly by lost productivity. Progent offers an on-call source of reserve support experts to make sure your IT system stays up and running.
- Create a Scalable Foundation for Seamless Expansion
Companies typically start with an information architecture created on a modest budget. Without a scalable framework, slap-dash repairs often get thrown onto a shaky foundation. As a company grows, reliability and scalability problems can hinder the productivity of the business. These poorly built systems require proper assessment, smart long-term planning, and extensive technical expertise to upgrade to a system infrastructure that can offer the solid foundation to meet current business requirements and simplify downstream growth.
- Interact with Problem Solvers Rather Than Technology Resellers
Smaller companies need guidance and technical education to negotiate an ever more complex array of product alternatives available for accelerating business success and enhancing productivity. They do not need a computer engineer who is attempting to earn a commission on a specific vendor's technology. Network consulting and product sales can lead to a situation where the recommended
solution is designed around a predetermined technology rather than the genuine requirements of a client. Progent eliminates these conflicts of interest by selling only services instead of products. This enables Progent to match technical expertise with the best needs of customers.
What Makes Progent Unique from Other Service Firms?
Progent is a Microsoft Partner consulting firm and Progent's head count, range of IT knowledge, refined support tools, and familiarity with enterprise networking allow companies to escape the pitfalls of exclusive dependence on smaller service organizations, individual freelance consultants, or limited internal IT help.
Progent adds value by offering:
