Benefits of Progent's IT Support for Companies in Anchorage Alaska
Progent's online technical help services enable your Anchorage business to enjoy the benefits of immediate, enterprise-class network support without the expense of maintaining a full-time IT staff. Your information system will derive greater strategic worth by being more reliable, productive, and secure. Benefits to your company include:
- Seamless remote extension of your on-site IT resources
With most offices in Anchorage Alaska, local network support resources, whether consisting of outside consultants or an internal IT staff, can resolve the majority of technical issues. On the other hand, major troubles may strike when your regular support personnel are too busy or absent, and some problems may be associated with technology that is unfamiliar to your local support personnel. In these instances, Progent's online service specialists offer a convenient, fast, and affordable way to augment your regular help and to pass on useful information to improve your ability to resolve future issues locally.
- Less Reliance on Freelance Consultants
For network maintenance, smaller companies often depend on individual freelance consultants. Although independent service people carry smaller internal costs than larger support organizations and can often charge marginally less, they are often overbooked, making it hard to respond rapidly to urgent situations. If an independent service provider is busy with another customer, ill, on a trip, or in training, the lack of fallback help may force your business to go without help during an emergency. As your company expands, system unavailability and trouble with critical software become more expensive. The money you thought you were saving on an independent can be eaten up fast by reduced productivity. Progent provides an on-call source of backup support expertise to make sure your network remains available.
- Build a Scalable Foundation for Seamless Expansion
Companies typically start with an information system created on a modest budget. Lacking a robust infrastructure, slap-dash fixes can get piled onto a shaky foundation. As a company grows, reliability and expandability issues can impede the success of the business. Such poorly designed systems need careful assessment, smart strategic planning, and broad-based technical expertise to upgrade to a network architecture that can provide the solid foundation to handle critical business demands and ease downstream expansion.
- Work with Solution Providers Instead of Technology Resellers
Smaller organizations require guidance and technical training to navigate through an increasingly complex maze of product alternatives capable of promoting business success and improving efficiency. Businesses do not need a network engineer who is trying to resell a specific vendor's technology. IT consulting and product sales can lead to a scenario where the recommended
solution is built around a profitable technology rather than the genuine needs of a business. Progent eliminates these dilemmas by offering just services instead of products. This enables Progent to match technical consulting with the real needs of clients.
What Makes Progent Unique from Other Service Organizations?
Progent is a Microsoft Certified Partner support firm and Progent's staff size, breadth of IT expertise, refined support software, and familiarity with corporate IT enable offices to avoid the pitfalls associated with exclusive reliance on smaller consulting firms, independent freelance consultants, or limited in-house IT help.
Progent adds value by offering:
