Benefits of Progent's IT Support for Companies in Baltimore Maryland
Progent's online IT consulting services allow your Baltimore business to have the advantages of immediate, enterprise-class network support without the expense of managing a full-time IT staff. Your information system will derive greater business worth by becoming more available, efficient, and protected. Benefits to your business include:
- Seamless remote extension of your local IT resources
With most companies in Baltimore Maryland, local network support providers, whether made up of independent consultants or an in-house maintenance staff, can handle typical network problems. However, major troubles sometimes occur when local support personnel are too busy or absent, and some problems may stem from technology that is beyond the scope of your onsite service technicians. In these cases, Progent's online support experts provide an easy, fast, and affordable solution to augment your regular help and to transfer valuable knowledge to improve your capability to handle future issues in-house.
- Reduced Reliance on Individual Consultants
For network maintenance, smaller organizations often rely on independent freelance consultants. While freelance service people have less overhead than big support firms and can afford to charge lower rates, they are often overbooked, making it difficult to respond rapidly to crisis situations. If a freelance service provider is busy with another customer, ill, on vacation, or in class, the absence of fallback personnel may force your business to go without assistance during an IT crisis. As your business grows, system downtime and problems with critical applications are more costly. The budget you thought you were saving on an independent can be eaten up fast by lost productivity. Progent provides a dependable source of backup service experts to insure your IT system stays up and running.
- Build a Solid Basis for Smooth Expansion
Organizations often start with an IT architecture implemented on a modest budget. Without a proper framework, slap-dash fixes often get piled onto a shaky foundation. As a company grows, stability and scalability problems can hinder the productivity of the business. These poorly built systems require careful analysis, smart long-term planning, and broad-based technical expertise to upgrade to a system infrastructure that can offer the solid foundation to handle critical business demands and ease future expansion.
- Work with Solution Providers Instead of Technology Vendors
Smaller organizations need advice and technical training to negotiate an increasingly complex array of product options available for promoting business success and improving efficiency. They hardly need a computer engineer who is motivated to sell a certain vendor's technology. IT support and product selling can result in a scenario where the proposed
solution is built around a profitable product instead of the genuine needs of a business. Progent eliminates these conflicts of interest by offering only services instead of products. This enables Progent to match IT consulting with the best needs of customers.
How Is Progent Unique from Other Support Organizations?
Progent is a Microsoft Certified Partner consulting company and Progent's staff size, breadth of technical expertise, refined remote support software, and familiarity with corporate IT enable businesses to escape the pitfalls associated with excessive reliance on smaller consulting firms, independent freelance consultants, or limited in-house resources.
Progent stands out by providing:
How Does Our Company Begin Getting Remote Network Support from Progent?

Progent's fine granularity does away with big invoices for fast fixes so you won't be tempted to permit simple problems to fester.
- Information Transfer
Progent practices knowledge transfer from Progent's support experts to clients. By teaching clients to deal with technical issues that are within their scope, Progent can concentrate on offering hard-to-find services where Progent has few competitors.
