Benefits of Progent's Network Help for Offices in Anchorage
Progent's remote network troubleshooting services allow your Anchorage organization to experience the advantages of immediate, enterprise-grade network support without the expense of maintaining a full-time IT organization. Your information system will acquire added business worth by becoming increasingly reliable, efficient, and secure. Benefits to your business include:

  • Convenient virtual extension of your local support resources
    With most companies in Anchorage or anywhere in Alaska, local computer support resources, whether represented by independent consultants or a full-time IT staff, can resolve the majority of technical problems. On the other hand, IT crises sometimes strike when local resources are overstretched or absent, and some trouble may be associated with IT products that is beyond the scope of your local support technicians. In these cases, Progent's online support professionals give you a convenient, fast, and economical way to supplement your regular resources and to transfer useful information to increase your ability to deal with future problems locally.

  • Reduced Dependence on Individual Consultants
    For IT maintenance, smaller businesses commonly depend on independent freelance consultants. While freelance service people have smaller internal costs than big support organizations and can afford to charge lower rates, they are often overbooked, making it hard to respond rapidly to urgent situations. If an independent consultant is busy with another customer, sick, on vacation, or in class, the lack of fallback personnel may require your company to go without help during an IT crisis. As your business grows, network unavailability and trouble with critical software are more expensive. The money you thought you were conserving on an independent can be consumed fast by reduced productivity. Progent offers a ready source of reserve support experts to insure your IT system remains available.

  • Build a Scalable Foundation for Smooth Expansion
    Businesses typically start with an IT architecture implemented on a shoestring budget. Without a robust infrastructure, slap-dash repairs can get thrown on top of a weak foundation. When a network grows, reliability and expandability issues can impede the productivity of the business. These badly designed systems require careful analysis, smart strategic planning, and broad-based IT expertise to upgrade to a network architecture that can offer the solid foundation to handle current business requirements and facilitate future growth.

  • Work with Solution Providers Rather Than Product Resellers
    Smaller offices need advice and technical training to negotiate an ever more complex maze of product alternatives available for accelerating business growth and improving productivity. They hardly need a network consultant who is motivated to earn a commission on a certain vendor's products. Network support and product selling can result in a situation where the recommended solution is built around a predetermined technology rather than the genuine needs of a business. Progent avoids these conflicts of interest by offering only services instead of products. This allows Progent to match IT expertise with the best needs of customers.

What Makes Progent Different from Other Service Organizations?
Progent is a Microsoft Partner support firm and Progent's staff size, range of technical knowledge, fine tuned support tools, and understanding of enterprise networking enable businesses to escape the pitfalls of exclusive dependence on smaller service firms, independent freelance consultants, or over-stretched internal resources.
