Advantages of Progent's Network Help for Offices in Boston Massachusetts
Progent's online network troubleshooting services allow your Boston company to have the advantages of timely, enterprise-level IT support without the expense of maintaining a full-time IT organization. Your network will derive greater strategic value by becoming increasingly available, productive, and protected. Advantages to your company include:
- Seamless remote expansion of your local IT resources
For most businesses in Boston Massachusetts, nearby network support providers, whether consisting of independent consultants or a full-time IT staff, can take care of the majority of technical issues. However, IT crises sometimes strike when your regular support personnel are too busy or unavailable, and some problems may stem from IT products that is unfamiliar to your usual service personnel. In these instances, Progent's on-call service experts provide an easy, quick, and budget-friendly way to augment your regular resources and to pass on valuable information to improve your capability to resolve future issues in-house.
- Reduced Reliance on Freelance Consultants
For IT support, smaller organizations commonly rely on independent freelance service providers. While freelance consultants carry smaller internal costs than big service companies and can often charge lower rates, they are occasionally stretched too thin, making it impossible to respond rapidly to crisis situations. If a freelance consultant is busy with another client, sick, on a trip, or in training, the lack of fallback personnel may force your company to go without assistance during an IT crisis. As your business expands, network unavailability and trouble with vital applications are more expensive. The money you thought you were conserving on a freelancer can be eaten up fast by lost productivity. Progent offers a ready source of reserve support experts to insure your network stays available.
- Build a Scalable Foundation for Smooth Growth
Companies often begin with an information architecture implemented on a modest budget. Without a strong infrastructure, band-aid fixes can get piled onto an unstable foundation. As a network grows, reliability and scalability issues can impede the productivity of the business. These poorly designed environments need proper assessment, smart long-term planning, and wide IT knowledge to evolve to a system architecture able to deliver the stable foundation to meet critical business requirements and facilitate future growth.
- Interact with Problem Solvers Rather Than Technology Sellers
Smaller organizations require guidance and technical education to navigate through an increasingly complicated array of product options available for accelerating business growth and improving productivity. They hardly need a network engineer who is motivated to earn a commission on a certain vendor's products. Network support and product selling can lead to a situation where the proposed
solution is designed around a profitable product rather than the genuine needs of a client. Progent avoids these conflicts by selling just services instead of products. This enables Progent to match technical consulting with the real interests of clients.
What Makes Progent Unique from Other Support Organizations?
Progent is a Microsoft Partner consulting firm and Progent's number of employees, range of technical background, refined support tools, and understanding of enterprise networking allow offices to escape the pitfalls associated with exclusive reliance on smaller service firms, individual freelance service providers, or over-stretched in-house resources.
