Benefits of Progent's IT Support for Businesses in Boise
Progent's online IT consulting services enable your Boise organization to experience the advantages of on-call, enterprise-level network support without the expense of managing a full-time IT organization. Your network will acquire greater business value by being increasingly available, productive, and protected. Benefits to your business include:

  • Seamless virtual expansion of your on-site support resources
    With most organizations in Boise or anywhere in Idaho, local network support resources, whether consisting of independent consultants or an in-house IT staff, can resolve the majority of technical problems. However, major troubles sometimes spring up when local support personnel are overstretched or absent, and some problems may involve technology that is beyond the scope of your usual support people. In these situations, Progent's online service experts give you an easy, fast, and economical solution to augment your regular help and to transfer useful information to increase your capability to deal with downstream problems in-house.

  • Reduced Dependence on Individual Consultants
    For IT maintenance, smaller offices commonly rely on individual freelance consultants. Although freelance service people carry smaller internal costs than big support companies and can often charge lower rates, they are occasionally overextended, making it difficult to respond rapidly to urgent situations. If an independent service provider is occupied with another client, sick, on a trip, or in training, the absence of backup personnel may force your company to go without help during an IT crisis. As your business expands, system downtime and trouble with vital software become more costly. The budget you thought you were saving on a freelancer can be consumed fast by reduced productivity. Progent provides a dependable source of reserve service expertise to make sure your IT system is always available.

  • Create a Scalable Foundation for Smooth Expansion
    Organizations often start with an IT architecture created on a modest budget. Lacking a robust infrastructure, band-aid fixes often get piled onto a shaky foundation. As a network grows, stability and scalability issues can hinder the productivity of the organization. These poorly designed environments require careful assessment, smart long-term planning, and broad-based IT expertise to evolve to a network architecture able to offer the solid foundation to meet vital business requirements and facilitate downstream expansion.

  • Work with Problem Solvers Instead of Product Vendors
    Smaller companies require advice and technical training to negotiate an ever more complex maze of product options available for promoting business growth and improving efficiency. They do not need a network engineer who is attempting to sell a specific vendor's technology. IT support and product sales can result in a scenario where the proposed solution is built around a predetermined technology instead of the true requirements of a business. Progent avoids these conflicts by selling only services instead of products. This enables Progent to align IT consulting with the real needs of clients.

What Makes Progent Unique from Other Support Firms?
Progent is a Microsoft Partner consulting company and Progent's head count, breadth of IT background, refined remote support software, and familiarity with corporate IT allow offices to escape the limitations associated with exclusive dependence on smaller consulting firms, independent freelance service providers, or over-stretched internal IT help.
