Advantages of Progent's Network Help for Offices in Boston Massachusetts
Progent's remote network troubleshooting services enable your Boston business to experience the benefits of timely, enterprise-grade IT support without the expense of managing a full-time IT organization. Your information system will derive added business worth by being increasingly available, efficient, and protected. Advantages to your company include:
- Convenient virtual extension of your on-site support resources
For most offices in Boston Massachusetts, local computer support providers, whether represented by outside consultants or a full-time maintenance staff, can take care of typical network problems. However, major troubles can occur when your regular support personnel are overstretched or unavailable, and some trouble may be associated with IT products that is unfamiliar to your local service people. In these instances, Progent's online support experts offer an easy, quick, and economical way to supplement your local resources and to transfer valuable information to improve your capability to handle downstream issues locally.
- Less Reliance on Freelance Consultants
For network maintenance, smaller organizations commonly depend on independent freelance service providers. Although freelance consultants have smaller internal costs than big consulting organizations and can often charge lower rates, they are often stretched too thin, making it hard to respond quickly to urgent situations. If a freelance service provider is busy with another customer, sick, on vacation, or in class, the lack of backup personnel may force your company to go without help during an emergency. As your business grows, system downtime and problems with critical applications become more costly. The budget you thought you were conserving on a freelancer can be consumed quickly by reduced productivity. Progent offers a reliable source of reserve support experts to make sure your IT system remains available.
- Build a Scalable Basis for Smooth Growth
Companies typically start with an IT system created on a shoestring budget. Lacking a robust infrastructure, band-aid fixes can get thrown onto an unstable foundation. As a network grows, stability and expandability issues can impede the success of the organization. Such poorly designed environments need proper assessment, smart long-term planning, and wide technical expertise to evolve to a network architecture that can deliver the stable foundation to handle vital business demands and ease future expansion.
- Interact with Problem Solvers Instead of Product Vendors
Smaller businesses need guidance and technical training to negotiate an increasingly complex maze of technology alternatives capable of promoting business success and enhancing efficiency. Businesses do not need a computer consultant who is attempting to sell a certain vendor's products. IT support and product sales can lead to a situation where the proposed
solution is designed around a profitable product instead of the genuine requirements of a client. Progent eliminates these dilemmas by offering only services instead of products. This enables Progent to align IT consulting with the best needs of clients.
How Is Progent Unique from Other Service Organizations?
Progent is a Microsoft Certified Partner consulting firm and Progent's number of employees, depth of technical background, fine tuned remote support tools, and understanding of corporate IT allow companies to escape the pitfalls associated with exclusive reliance on smaller consulting firms, independent freelance service providers, or over-stretched internal resources.
