Benefits of Progent's IT Support for Offices in Buffalo
Progent's online IT consulting services enable your Buffalo organization to enjoy the benefits of immediate, expert network support without the cost of maintaining an in-house IT organization. Your information system will acquire greater strategic value by becoming more available, efficient, and secure. Advantages to your business include:

  • Seamless remote extension of your local IT resources
    With most organizations in Buffalo or anywhere in New York, nearby computer service providers, whether represented by freelance consultants or an internal maintenance staff, can deal with the majority of network problems. However, major troubles might strike when local resources are overstretched or absent, and some problems may involve IT products that is beyond the scope of your local support personnel. In these instances, Progent's on-call support professionals offer a convenient, fast, and budget-friendly way to supplement your regular help and to convey useful information to increase your capability to handle future issues locally.

  • Reduced Reliance on Individual Consultants
    For IT maintenance, smaller businesses commonly depend on individual freelance service providers. While independent consultants have less internal costs than larger support firms and can afford to charge lower rates, they are often overextended, making it difficult to respond rapidly to urgent situations. If an independent consultant is occupied with another client, ill, on vacation, or in class, the lack of reserve personnel may require your business to go without assistance during an IT crisis. As your company grows, system downtime and problems with critical software are more expensive. The budget you thought you were saving on a freelancer can be eaten up fast by lost productivity. Progent provides a ready source of reserve service expertise to make sure your network stays up and running.

  • Create a Scalable Foundation for Smooth Growth
    Companies typically begin with an IT architecture created on a modest budget. Without a strong infrastructure, slap-dash fixes can get piled onto a weak foundation. As a network grows, reliability and expandability issues can impede the success of the organization. Such poorly designed environments require proper analysis, intelligent long-term planning, and extensive IT knowledge to evolve to a network architecture that can provide the solid foundation to handle critical business demands and facilitate downstream expansion.

  • Work with Solution Providers Rather Than Product Vendors
    Smaller companies require guidance and technical education to navigate through an increasingly complicated array of product options available for promoting business success and improving efficiency. They hardly need a computer consultant who is trying to earn a commission on a specific vendor's technology. Network support and product sales can lead to a situation where the proposed solution is built around a predetermined technology rather than the true requirements of a client. Progent eliminates these conflicts of interest by selling just services rather than products. This enables Progent to match technical expertise with the best needs of clients.

How Is Progent Different from Other Service Organizations?
Progent is a Microsoft Partner support firm and Progent's number of employees, breadth of IT expertise, refined remote support tools, and familiarity with corporate IT enable companies to escape the limitations of excessive dependence on smaller consulting organizations, individual freelance consultants, or limited in-house resources.
