Advantages of Progent's IT Support for Businesses in Boston Massachusetts
Progent's online IT consulting services allow your Boston organization to realize the advantages of on-call, enterprise-grade IT support without the expense of maintaining an in-house IT organization. Your network will derive greater strategic worth by being increasingly available, efficient, and secure. Advantages to your business include:
- Convenient virtual expansion of your on-site support resources
With most offices in Boston Massachusetts, local computer support resources, whether consisting of independent consultants or an internal maintenance staff, can resolve the majority of network issues. On the other hand, IT crises might strike when local support personnel are overstretched or unavailable, and some trouble may involve IT products that is unfamiliar to your local service people. In these cases, Progent's online service specialists give you an easy, quick, and budget-friendly solution to supplement your regular resources and to convey useful information to improve your ability to handle future problems in-house.
- Less Dependence on Freelance Service Providers
For IT support, smaller businesses often rely on independent freelance service providers. Although freelance consultants have smaller internal costs than larger support companies and can often charge marginally less, they are occasionally stretched too thin, making it difficult to respond quickly to urgent situations. If an independent service provider is occupied with another client, ill, on a trip, or in class, the absence of reserve help may force your company to go without assistance during an emergency. As your company grows, network unavailability and problems with vital applications are more costly. The budget you thought you were saving on an independent can be consumed fast by reduced productivity. Progent offers a ready source of reserve service experts to insure your IT system is always available.
- Build a Scalable Basis for Smooth Growth
Organizations often begin with an IT architecture created on a modest budget. Lacking a strong infrastructure, band-aid repairs can get thrown onto a shaky foundation. When a network grows, reliability and scalability issues can hinder the productivity of the business. These poorly designed environments need proper assessment, smart strategic planning, and extensive technical knowledge to upgrade to a network infrastructure that can deliver the stable foundation to meet current business demands and facilitate future growth.
- Interact with Problem Solvers Instead of Technology Sellers
Smaller businesses need guidance and technical training to negotiate an increasingly complex maze of technology options capable of promoting business growth and enhancing efficiency. They do not need a network consultant who is trying to earn a commission on a certain vendor's products. Network support and product selling can result in a situation where the recommended
solution is built around a predetermined product rather than the genuine needs of a client. Progent avoids these dilemmas by offering only services rather than products. This enables Progent to match technical consulting with the real needs of customers.
What Makes Progent Unique from Other Service Organizations?
Progent is a Microsoft Partner consulting company and Progent's head count, range of IT experience, fine tuned remote support tools, and understanding of enterprise networking enable offices to avoid the limitations of exclusive dependence on smaller consulting organizations, independent freelance consultants, or over-stretched in-house IT help.
