Benefits of Progent's Network Help for Organizations in Anchorage Alaska
Progent's remote network troubleshooting services enable your Anchorage company to experience the advantages of on-call, world-class network support without the cost of managing a full-time IT staff. Your information system will acquire added business worth by being increasingly available, efficient, and secure. Benefits to your company include:
- Seamless remote extension of your local support resources
For most offices in Anchorage Alaska, local computer support resources, whether made up of outside consultants or a full-time maintenance staff, can solve typical technical problems. However, serious problems might strike when local support personnel are overstretched or absent, and some trouble may involve IT products that is beyond the scope of your onsite service technicians. In these situations, Progent's on-call service professionals give you an easy, fast, and budget-friendly way to augment your regular help and to transfer valuable information to improve your ability to deal with future issues in-house.
- Less Reliance on Freelance Consultants
For network support, smaller companies often rely on individual freelance service providers. While independent service people have less internal costs than larger support firms and can often charge marginally less, they are sometimes overextended, making it hard to respond rapidly to urgent situations. If a freelance consultant is busy with another customer, ill, on a trip, or in training, the lack of fallback personnel may force your company to go without help during an IT crisis. As your business grows, system unavailability and trouble with critical applications become more costly. The money you thought you were conserving on an independent can be consumed quickly by lost productivity. Progent provides a dependable source of backup service expertise to make sure your network remains up and running.
- Build a Scalable Foundation for Seamless Growth
Companies often start with an IT system implemented on a shoestring budget. Without a proper infrastructure, slap-dash repairs often get thrown onto a weak foundation. As a network grows, reliability and scalability issues can impede the success of the organization. Such badly built systems need proper assessment, intelligent strategic planning, and wide IT expertise to upgrade to a network infrastructure able to provide the solid foundation to handle vital business demands and facilitate future growth.
- Interact with Solution Providers Instead of Product Resellers
Smaller companies require guidance and technical training to negotiate an ever more complicated array of technology alternatives capable of promoting business growth and enhancing productivity. They do not need a computer engineer who is attempting to sell a certain vendor's products. Network support and product sales can lead to a situation where the recommended
solution is designed around a profitable technology instead of the true needs of a client. Progent avoids these conflicts by selling only services instead of products. This enables Progent to align IT consulting with the real needs of clients.
How Is Progent Unique from Other Support Firms?
Progent is a Microsoft Partner consulting firm and Progent's number of employees, range of technical background, refined remote support tools, and understanding of corporate IT allow businesses to escape the limitations of exclusive reliance on smaller service organizations, independent freelance consultants, or over-stretched internal IT help.
Progent adds value by offering:
