Benefits of Progent's Network Help for Businesses in Baltimore Maryland
Progent's remote support services enable your Baltimore company to experience the advantages of timely, expert network support without the cost of managing a full-time IT organization. Your network will derive added strategic value by becoming more available, efficient, and secure. Advantages to your company include:
- Seamless remote expansion of your local support resources
With most businesses in Baltimore Maryland, nearby computer support providers, whether represented by outside consultants or an in-house maintenance staff, can deal with the majority of network problems. However, IT crises sometimes strike when local support personnel are overstretched or unavailable, and some trouble may involve IT products that is unfamiliar to your usual support personnel. In these cases, Progent's on-call service specialists provide a convenient, fast, and economical way to augment your local help and to convey valuable information to increase your ability to resolve downstream issues locally.
- Reduced Dependence on Individual Consultants
For IT support, smaller offices commonly rely on individual freelance consultants. Although freelance service people carry less internal costs than larger support companies and can often charge lower rates, they are sometimes overbooked, making it difficult to respond quickly to urgent situations. If an independent consultant is busy with another client, sick, on vacation, or in class, the lack of fallback personnel may force your business to go without assistance during an emergency. As your network expands, system unavailability and trouble with vital software become more expensive. The budget you thought you were saving on a freelancer can be consumed quickly by lost productivity. Progent provides an on-call source of reserve service expertise to make sure your network stays available.
- Create a Scalable Foundation for Seamless Expansion
Companies often start with an IT system implemented on a modest budget. Without a strong framework, slap-dash fixes can get thrown on top of an unstable foundation. As a network grows, reliability and expandability problems can impede the success of the business. These badly designed systems need proper analysis, smart long-term planning, and extensive IT expertise to evolve to a network architecture able to provide the stable foundation to meet current business demands and simplify future expansion.
- Interact with Problem Solvers Rather Than Product Resellers
Smaller companies need advice and technical training to negotiate an ever more complicated array of product options capable of accelerating business success and improving efficiency. These companies do not need a network engineer who is motivated to sell a specific vendor's products. IT consulting and product sales can lead to a situation where the proposed
solution is designed around a profitable technology instead of the true needs of a client. Progent eliminates these dilemmas by selling only services instead of products. This allows Progent to match technical expertise with the real interests of customers.
How Is Progent Unique from Other Support Organizations?
Progent is a Microsoft Certified Partner support firm and Progent's head count, depth of technical expertise, fine tuned support tools, and understanding of corporate IT allow companies to avoid the pitfalls associated with exclusive reliance on smaller consulting organizations, independent freelance consultants, or limited internal resources.
Progent adds value by offering:
