Benefits of Progent's IT Support for Companies in Anchorage
Progent's online IT consulting services enable your Anchorage company to realize the advantages of on-call, enterprise-level network support without the cost of maintaining an in-house IT organization. Your network will acquire greater business value by becoming increasingly available, efficient, and protected. Benefits to your company include:

  • Convenient remote extension of your on-site IT resources
    With most organizations in Anchorage or anywhere in Alaska, nearby computer support providers, whether consisting of outside consultants or an in-house maintenance staff, can resolve the majority of technical problems. However, IT crises sometimes occur when local support personnel are overstretched or absent, and some problems may be associated with technology that is unfamiliar to your usual support technicians. In these instances, Progent's on-call support experts give you a convenient, fast, and economical way to augment your regular resources and to transfer useful information to improve your capability to resolve future problems locally.

  • Reduced Reliance on Freelance Consultants
    For network support, smaller offices often depend on individual freelance consultants. Although freelance consultants have smaller internal costs than big support companies and can often charge lower rates, they are occasionally stretched too thin, making it difficult to respond quickly to crisis situations. If an independent consultant is busy with another client, sick, on vacation, or in training, the absence of backup personnel may require your business to go without help during an IT crisis. As your business grows, system unavailability and problems with critical applications become more expensive. The budget you thought you were saving on a freelancer can be consumed fast by lost productivity. Progent offers a reliable source of backup service expertise to make sure your network remains available.

  • Build a Scalable Foundation for Smooth Expansion
    Businesses often begin with an information architecture created on a modest budget. Lacking a scalable infrastructure, band-aid repairs often get thrown onto a weak foundation. As a network grows, stability and expandability issues can impede the productivity of the business. These badly built environments require proper assessment, intelligent long-term planning, and extensive technical knowledge to evolve to a system infrastructure able to provide the stable foundation to meet current business requirements and simplify future growth.

  • Interact with Solution Providers Instead of Product Sellers
    Smaller businesses require advice and technical education to navigate through an increasingly complex maze of technology alternatives available for promoting business success and enhancing productivity. These companies do not need a computer consultant who is attempting to resell a certain vendor's products. Network support and product sales can result in a scenario where the proposed solution is designed around a predetermined product rather than the true needs of a business. Progent avoids these conflicts by selling just services rather than products. This allows Progent to align technical expertise with the real needs of clients.

How Is Progent Different from Other Support Organizations?
Progent is a Microsoft Certified Partner consulting company and Progent's staff size, depth of IT knowledge, refined remote support tools, and understanding of enterprise networking allow businesses to avoid the limitations of excessive dependence on smaller consulting firms, individual freelance consultants, or limited internal resources.
