Benefits of Progent's IT Support for Offices in Boise
Progent's online network troubleshooting services enable your Boise organization to enjoy the benefits of timely, expert IT support without the expense of maintaining a full-time IT staff. Your network will acquire added strategic value by becoming more reliable, efficient, and secure. Advantages to your company include:

  • Convenient virtual extension of your local IT resources
    For most companies in Boise and throughout Idaho, local network service providers, whether made up of outside consultants or a full-time IT staff, can handle the majority of network problems. On the other hand, major troubles sometimes strike when local resources are overstretched or absent, and some problems may be associated with technology that is beyond the scope of your local support technicians. In these situations, Progent's online support professionals offer a convenient, fast, and budget-friendly solution to supplement your regular resources and to convey valuable knowledge to improve your capability to resolve future problems in-house.

  • Reduced Dependence on Individual Consultants
    For network support, smaller organizations often rely on independent freelance service providers. While freelance consultants have smaller overhead than larger consulting companies and can often charge marginally less, they are occasionally stretched too thin, making it impossible to respond rapidly to urgent situations. If a freelance consultant is busy with another client, ill, on vacation, or in training, the absence of reserve help may force your business to wait for assistance during an emergency. As your company grows, system downtime and problems with vital software are more expensive. The money you thought you were conserving on an independent can be eaten up fast by lost productivity. Progent provides an on-call source of backup service experts to insure your IT system stays up and running.

  • Create a Solid Foundation for Seamless Growth
    Organizations often start with an information architecture implemented on a modest budget. Lacking a scalable infrastructure, band-aid fixes can get thrown onto an unstable foundation. When a network grows, reliability and expandability problems can impede the success of the organization. Such badly built environments require careful assessment, smart strategic planning, and wide IT knowledge to upgrade to a system architecture that can offer the stable foundation to handle vital business demands and facilitate downstream expansion.

  • Interact with Solution Providers Instead of Product Vendors
    Smaller businesses need advice and technical training to negotiate an increasingly complicated maze of technology alternatives capable of accelerating business growth and enhancing efficiency. Businesses do not need a computer consultant who is trying to sell a certain vendor's products. Network support and product selling can lead to a scenario where the proposed solution is built around a predetermined product rather than the genuine requirements of a business. Progent avoids these conflicts of interest by offering just services rather than products. This enables Progent to align IT expertise with the real interests of customers.

How Is Progent Different from Other Support Firms?
Progent is a Microsoft Partner support firm and Progent's staff size, depth of IT experience, fine tuned support software, and familiarity with enterprise networking allow offices to escape the pitfalls associated with exclusive dependence on smaller consulting organizations, individual freelance consultants, or over-stretched in-house resources.
