Benefits of Progent's IT Support for Offices in Buffalo
Progent's online network troubleshooting services allow your Buffalo organization to realize the benefits of timely, enterprise-grade IT support without the expense of managing an in-house IT staff. Your network will acquire greater business value by being more available, productive, and secure. Advantages to your business include:

  • Convenient virtual extension of your local IT resources
    With most businesses in Buffalo and throughout New York, nearby network support providers, whether consisting of outside consultants or an in-house maintenance staff, can resolve typical technical issues. However, serious problems might occur when local resources are overstretched or absent, and some trouble may involve technology that is beyond the scope of your onsite support personnel. In these situations, Progent's online service specialists give you a convenient, quick, and affordable way to supplement your regular help and to transfer useful information to increase your ability to deal with downstream issues in-house.

  • Reduced Reliance on Individual Service Providers
    For network support, smaller offices commonly depend on individual freelance service providers. Although independent service people have less internal costs than larger support firms and can afford to charge lower rates, they are occasionally overbooked, making it impossible to respond rapidly to urgent situations. If an independent service provider is busy with another client, sick, on vacation, or in training, the absence of fallback personnel may force your business to wait for help during an IT crisis. As your network expands, network downtime and trouble with vital applications become more expensive. The money you thought you were conserving on a freelancer can be eaten up fast by lost productivity. Progent provides a reliable source of reserve service expertise to insure your IT system is always up and running.

  • Build a Solid Basis for Smooth Expansion
    Organizations often begin with an information system created on a modest budget. Without a strong framework, slap-dash repairs can get thrown on top of an unstable foundation. As a company grows, stability and expandability issues can hinder the success of the business. These badly designed systems need careful analysis, intelligent strategic planning, and wide IT expertise to evolve to a system infrastructure that can offer the solid foundation to meet critical business requirements and ease downstream expansion.

  • Work with Solution Providers Instead of Product Sellers
    Smaller businesses need advice and technical training to navigate through an ever more complicated maze of technology options capable of accelerating business growth and improving productivity. They do not need a computer consultant who is motivated to earn a commission on a specific vendor's technology. IT support and product sales can lead to a situation where the recommended solution is designed around a profitable product rather than the true requirements of a client. Progent eliminates these dilemmas by selling just services rather than products. This allows Progent to align IT expertise with the real interests of customers.

What Makes Progent Different from Other Service Organizations?
Progent is a Microsoft Certified Partner consulting firm and Progent's head count, breadth of IT background, fine tuned remote support tools, and familiarity with corporate IT enable offices to avoid the pitfalls associated with excessive dependence on smaller consulting organizations, individual freelance consultants, or over-stretched in-house IT help.

Progent stands out by providing:

  • Best Practices
    Progentís team of Microsoft and Cisco Premier Certified consultants average longer than a decade of real-world professional background, in the trenches of IT service, executing a wide variety of technical tasks for a large mix of clients.

  • Value Pricing
    Progent's pricing model is to charge for phone service and in-person help per minute. Consequently, you are billed just for delivered support.

In addition, Progent imposes no startup charge and requires no retainer for services delivered during regular working hours. Many support firms demand substantial minimum payments or charge for each quarter hour or longer. Progent's fine granularity avoids big bills for fast solutions so you won't be forced to permit less critical problems to fester.

  • Knowledge Transfer
    Progent is committed to knowledge transfer from Progent's support experts to customers. By educating customers to deal with problems that are within their comfort zone, Progent can focus on delivering high-value services where Progent faces few competitors.

  • 24x7 Server Monitoring with Microsoft System Center Operations Manager
