Benefits of Progent's IT Support for Businesses in Bellevue
Progent's online IT consulting services allow your Bellevue organization to have the advantages of immediate, enterprise-grade network support without the cost of managing a full-time IT staff. Your network will acquire greater strategic worth by becoming more available, efficient, and secure. Benefits to your company include:

  • Convenient remote expansion of your local IT resources
    With most offices in Bellevue or anywhere in Washington, nearby computer service providers, whether represented by outside consultants or a full-time maintenance staff, can handle typical network issues. On the other hand, IT crises sometimes strike when local resources are too busy or absent, and some problems may be associated with IT products that is beyond the scope of your usual support people. In these situations, Progent's online service professionals provide an easy, fast, and budget-friendly solution to augment your regular help and to transfer valuable information to increase your capability to resolve future issues locally.

  • Less Reliance on Freelance Service Providers
    For network maintenance, smaller organizations commonly rely on independent freelance consultants. Although independent consultants have less overhead than larger service firms and can often charge lower rates, they are sometimes overextended, making it hard to respond rapidly to urgent situations. If an independent service provider is busy with another customer, ill, on vacation, or in training, the lack of backup help may require your business to wait for help during an IT crisis. As your company grows, system unavailability and problems with vital software are more expensive. The budget you thought you were saving on a freelancer can be eaten up fast by lost productivity. Progent offers an on-call source of backup service experts to insure your network stays available.

  • Create a Solid Foundation for Smooth Expansion
    Companies typically begin with an information system implemented on a modest budget. Without a robust framework, slap-dash repairs often get thrown on top of a weak foundation. When a company grows, stability and scalability issues can hinder the productivity of the organization. These badly built systems require careful assessment, smart long-term planning, and wide technical knowledge to evolve to a system infrastructure that can offer the stable foundation to handle current business demands and ease future growth.

  • Interact with Solution Providers Rather Than Product Resellers
    Smaller organizations require guidance and technical training to negotiate an increasingly complicated maze of technology options capable of accelerating business growth and improving productivity. Businesses do not need a network consultant who is trying to sell a certain vendor's technology. Network support and product selling can lead to a scenario where the recommended solution is built around a profitable product instead of the true needs of a business. Progent eliminates these dilemmas by offering just services rather than products. This allows Progent to align technical expertise with the best needs of customers.

How Is Progent Unique from Other Support Firms?
Progent is a Microsoft Partner consulting firm and Progent's head count, range of IT expertise, refined remote support tools, and familiarity with enterprise networking allow companies to avoid the pitfalls associated with exclusive reliance on smaller service firms, individual freelance service providers, or over-stretched in-house IT help.

The practice of detailing and archiving service records results in more effective support and eliminates a variety of common misfortunes such as when a service customer is effectively held captive to a consultant who refuses to let go of the keys to the kingdom.

  • Automated Network Monitoring with MS System Center Operations Manager
    Progent is one of the only IT service firms to offer 24x7 remote monitoring services powered by Microsoft Operations Manager. MS System Center Operations Manager allows your network support to be proactive instead of reactive.
