Benefits of Progent's IT Support for Businesses in Boston
Progent's remote technical help services enable your Boston business to realize the benefits of immediate, enterprise-grade IT support without the cost of managing an in-house IT organization. Your network will derive added business worth by becoming increasingly available, efficient, and secure. Advantages to your company include:
- Seamless virtual extension of your local IT resources
For most offices in Boston or anywhere in Massachusetts, nearby computer service providers, whether represented by freelance consultants or an internal IT staff, can handle typical technical issues. However, serious problems sometimes strike when local resources are too busy or absent, and some trouble may be associated with IT products that is unfamiliar to your local service people. In these situations, Progent's online support professionals offer an easy, quick, and economical solution to augment your regular help and to convey valuable knowledge to increase your ability to handle downstream problems in-house.
- Reduced Dependence on Freelance Service Providers
For network support, smaller businesses often rely on independent freelance service providers. While independent consultants have smaller internal costs than larger support organizations and can afford to charge lower rates, they are occasionally overextended, making it difficult to respond rapidly to crisis situations. If an independent service provider is busy with another client, sick, on a trip, or in training, the lack of backup personnel may require your business to go without assistance during an emergency. As your business grows, system unavailability and problems with vital applications become more costly. The money you thought you were conserving on a freelancer can be consumed quickly by lost productivity. Progent provides an on-call source of backup support experts to make sure your IT system stays available.
- Build a Scalable Foundation for Seamless Growth
Organizations typically begin with an information architecture implemented on a shoestring budget. Without a robust infrastructure, band-aid fixes can get thrown on top of a shaky foundation. When a network grows, reliability and expandability issues can hinder the productivity of the business. These badly built environments need proper analysis, smart strategic planning, and extensive IT knowledge to upgrade to a system architecture that can deliver the solid foundation to meet critical business demands and simplify downstream growth.
- Interact with Solution Providers Rather Than Product Resellers
Smaller companies need guidance and technical training to negotiate an increasingly complex maze of product options available for accelerating business growth and improving productivity. They do not need a computer consultant who is motivated to resell a certain vendor's technology. IT support and product sales can result in a situation where the recommended
solution is built around a predetermined technology rather than the true requirements of a business. Progent eliminates these conflicts of interest by offering just services instead of products. This allows Progent to align technical expertise with the best interests of customers.
What Makes Progent Different from Other Support Firms?
Progent is a Microsoft Partner consulting company and Progent's staff size, depth of technical experience, refined remote support tools, and familiarity with corporate IT allow companies to escape the pitfalls associated with excessive dependence on smaller consulting firms, independent freelance consultants, or over-stretched internal resources.
Progent adds value by offering:
