Advantages of Progent's IT Support for Businesses in Anchorage Alaska
Progent's online technical help services allow your Anchorage organization to have the benefits of immediate, expert network support without the cost of maintaining a full-time IT organization. Your network will derive greater strategic value by becoming more available, efficient, and secure. Benefits to your company include:
- Convenient remote extension of your local support resources
For most offices in Anchorage Alaska, local network support resources, whether consisting of independent consultants or a full-time IT staff, can solve typical network issues. On the other hand, IT crises may occur when local resources are overstretched or unavailable, and some trouble may stem from technology that is beyond the scope of your onsite service personnel. In these instances, Progent's on-call support experts provide an easy, fast, and budget-friendly solution to supplement your regular resources and to convey valuable knowledge to increase your capability to deal with downstream problems in-house.
- Reduced Reliance on Freelance Consultants
For network maintenance, smaller companies often depend on independent freelance consultants. While freelance service people have less internal costs than larger consulting firms and can afford to charge marginally less, they are often overextended, making it impossible to respond rapidly to crisis situations. If an independent consultant is occupied with another customer, ill, on a trip, or in training, the absence of reserve help may require your company to wait for help during an IT crisis. As your network grows, network downtime and trouble with vital applications are more expensive. The money you thought you were conserving on an independent can be consumed fast by reduced productivity. Progent offers a dependable source of reserve support experts to make sure your network remains available.
- Create a Scalable Foundation for Smooth Growth
Businesses often start with an IT architecture created on a shoestring budget. Lacking a scalable framework, band-aid fixes often get piled on top of a weak foundation. When a company grows, stability and scalability issues can hinder the productivity of the organization. These badly built systems require proper analysis, intelligent strategic planning, and broad-based IT knowledge to upgrade to a system infrastructure able to provide the solid foundation to meet critical business demands and facilitate future expansion.
- Interact with Solution Providers Rather Than Technology Sellers
Smaller companies require guidance and technical education to navigate through an ever more complex maze of product alternatives available for accelerating business growth and enhancing productivity. They hardly need a computer consultant who is motivated to resell a certain vendor's products. Network consulting and product sales can result in a situation where the proposed
solution is designed around a predetermined technology rather than the true needs of a business. Progent avoids these conflicts by selling only services instead of products. This enables Progent to align technical consulting with the best interests of clients.
How Is Progent Unique from Other Support Firms?
Progent is a Microsoft Partner consulting company and Progent's staff size, breadth of IT experience, fine tuned remote support software, and familiarity with enterprise networking enable companies to escape the pitfalls of exclusive reliance on smaller consulting organizations, individual freelance service providers, or over-stretched internal IT help.
Progent adds value by offering:

Progent's fine granularity eliminates large bills for fast repairs so you won't be forced to allow simple problems to stay unaddressed.
- Complete Records of Delivered Services
Progent has developed a comprehensive service reporting system that records and organizes detailed documentation for all delivered support activities. Unlike some independent consultants or local service organizations who provide scant documentation or details of services performed, every service delivered by Progent is tracked by full documentation. Each Progent staff member has use of the service documentation sent by each consultant to each customer. The practice of documenting and organizing support records results in more effective support and avoids a slew of common misfortunes such as when a support customer is effectively held hostage to a consultant who won't release the keys to the kingdom.
- 24x7 Server Monitoring with Microsoft System Center Operations Manager
Progent is one of the only support firms to provide 24x7 remote tracking services based on MS Operations Manager. MS System Center Operations Manager causes your network support to be anticipatory rather than reactive.
