Advantages of Progent's IT Support for Offices in Boston Massachusetts
Progent's remote support services allow your Boston organization to enjoy the advantages of on-call, enterprise-class network support without the cost of managing a full-time IT staff. Your network will derive greater business value by becoming more reliable, productive, and protected. Benefits to your business include:
- Convenient virtual extension of your local IT resources
With most offices in Boston Massachusetts, local network service resources, whether represented by freelance consultants or an in-house maintenance staff, can solve typical technical problems. However, IT crises may strike when your regular resources are too busy or absent, and some problems may involve technology that is beyond the scope of your onsite support technicians. In these instances, Progent's on-call service specialists give you a convenient, fast, and affordable solution to supplement your local help and to pass on valuable knowledge to improve your ability to handle downstream problems locally.
- Less Reliance on Individual Service Providers
For IT support, smaller businesses commonly rely on independent freelance consultants. While freelance consultants have smaller internal costs than larger support organizations and can afford to charge marginally less, they are often overbooked, making it impossible to respond rapidly to urgent situations. If an independent service provider is occupied with another client, sick, on vacation, or in training, the lack of reserve personnel may require your business to wait for help during an IT crisis. As your business expands, network unavailability and trouble with critical applications are more expensive. The budget you thought you were conserving on a freelancer can be eaten up quickly by lost productivity. Progent provides a ready source of backup service experts to insure your IT system is always available.
- Build a Solid Foundation for Seamless Expansion
Organizations often begin with an IT system created on a modest budget. Without a strong infrastructure, band-aid repairs can get piled on top of an unstable foundation. As a company grows, stability and scalability problems can impede the success of the business. Such poorly designed systems require careful assessment, smart long-term planning, and extensive technical expertise to evolve to a system infrastructure able to deliver the stable foundation to meet current business demands and simplify downstream expansion.
- Interact with Solution Providers Rather Than Product Resellers
Smaller organizations require guidance and technical education to navigate through an increasingly complex array of product options capable of promoting business success and enhancing efficiency. Businesses hardly need a computer consultant who is attempting to earn a commission on a certain vendor's products. IT support and product sales can result in a situation where the proposed
solution is built around a profitable technology rather than the genuine requirements of a business. Progent eliminates these dilemmas by selling just services instead of products. This enables Progent to match IT consulting with the best needs of customers.
What Makes Progent Unique from Other Support Organizations?
Progent is a Microsoft Certified Partner support company and Progent's head count, depth of IT experience, fine tuned remote support software, and understanding of enterprise networking allow offices to avoid the limitations associated with excessive dependence on smaller consulting firms, independent freelance consultants, or over-stretched internal IT help.
Progent stands out by providing:
