Advantages of Progent's IT Support for Organizations in Allentown Pennsylvania
Progent's online technical help services enable your Allentown business to enjoy the benefits of on-call, enterprise-class IT support without the expense of managing a full-time IT staff. Your information system will derive greater strategic worth by becoming increasingly reliable, productive, and protected. Advantages to your company include:
- Convenient remote expansion of your on-site IT resources
For most businesses in Allentown Pennsylvania, nearby computer support providers, whether made up of independent consultants or an internal IT staff, can resolve typical technical issues. On the other hand, serious problems may occur when local resources are overstretched or absent, and some problems may stem from IT products that is unfamiliar to your onsite service technicians. In these cases, Progent's online support experts offer an easy, quick, and budget-friendly solution to supplement your local help and to pass on useful information to increase your ability to handle downstream issues in-house.
- Less Reliance on Individual Consultants
For IT support, smaller organizations commonly rely on individual freelance service providers. While freelance consultants have smaller internal costs than big consulting organizations and can often charge lower rates, they are sometimes stretched too thin, making it impossible to respond quickly to crisis situations. If a freelance consultant is busy with another customer, ill, on a trip, or in training, the absence of backup help may force your company to wait for assistance during an emergency. As your network grows, system unavailability and trouble with vital applications are more expensive. The budget you thought you were saving on a freelancer can be consumed fast by reduced productivity. Progent provides a ready source of reserve service expertise to make sure your network stays available.
- Create a Solid Basis for Seamless Growth
Businesses often start with an IT system created on a shoestring budget. Without a proper framework, band-aid repairs often get piled onto an unstable foundation. As a network grows, reliability and scalability problems can impede the success of the business. These poorly designed systems require proper analysis, intelligent strategic planning, and extensive technical expertise to evolve to a network infrastructure that can provide the solid foundation to meet critical business requirements and facilitate future expansion.
- Work with Problem Solvers Rather Than Technology Vendors
Smaller offices need guidance and technical education to navigate through an increasingly complex maze of technology options capable of promoting business growth and improving productivity. Businesses do not need a network engineer who is trying to earn a commission on a specific vendor's products. Network consulting and product sales can lead to a situation where the recommended
solution is built around a predetermined technology instead of the true needs of a business. Progent avoids these conflicts of interest by selling just services rather than products. This enables Progent to match technical consulting with the real interests of customers.
What Makes Progent Unique from Other Service Organizations?
Progent is a Microsoft Partner consulting firm and Progent's staff size, breadth of technical experience, fine tuned remote support software, and understanding of corporate IT allow companies to escape the pitfalls associated with excessive dependence on smaller consulting firms, individual freelance service providers, or over-stretched in-house IT help.
