To contact Progent about urgent remote help with Microsoft, Apple macOS and OS X, or Linux computer systems, go to Progent's Urgent Remote Support, telephone 1-800-993-9400, or visit Contact Progent. For offices and new ventures in Buffalo or anywhere in the state of New York, Progent's phone-based network support specialists can deliver expert and cost-effective system help the moment your company needs it. Long experience offering remote tech support has led to Microsoft Partner certification for Progent's team of engineers and has helped Progent to acquire world-class troubleshooting skills and to refine online access tools to fix computer problems quickly while eliminating the expense and lost productivity that comes with on-site service visits.

Advantages of Progent's Network Help for Businesses in Buffalo
Progent's online technical help services enable your Buffalo company to have the advantages of timely, expert IT support without the expense of maintaining a full-time IT staff. Your network will derive added business value by being increasingly available, efficient, and protected. Advantages to your business include:

  • Convenient remote extension of your on-site support resources
    For most businesses in Buffalo or anywhere in New York, local computer service resources, whether represented by freelance consultants or a full-time maintenance staff, can handle the majority of network issues. On the other hand, major troubles might occur when your regular support personnel are overstretched or absent, and some trouble may involve technology that is unfamiliar to your local service technicians. In these cases, Progent's online support experts provide a convenient, fast, and budget-friendly solution to augment your regular resources and to pass on valuable knowledge to increase your capability to deal with future issues in-house.

  • Less Reliance on Freelance Consultants
    For network support, smaller businesses often depend on individual freelance service providers. While independent service people have less overhead than big support companies and can afford to charge lower rates, they are sometimes stretched too thin, making it hard to respond quickly to crisis situations. If a freelance service provider is occupied with another client, sick, on a trip, or in class, the absence of fallback help may force your company to wait for assistance during an emergency. As your business grows, system downtime and trouble with critical applications become more costly. The budget you thought you were saving on a freelancer can be eaten up quickly by lost productivity. Progent provides an on-call source of reserve service expertise to insure your IT system is always up and running.

  • Build a Solid Foundation for Seamless Growth
    Companies often begin with an information system implemented on a shoestring budget. Lacking a scalable infrastructure, slap-dash repairs can get thrown on top of an unstable foundation. As a company grows, stability and scalability problems can hinder the productivity of the business. These badly built environments require careful analysis, smart long-term planning, and extensive IT knowledge to evolve to a system infrastructure able to provide the stable foundation to meet critical business demands and simplify future expansion.

  • Work with Problem Solvers Instead of Product Sellers
    Smaller offices need guidance and technical training to negotiate an ever more complicated maze of technology alternatives capable of accelerating business success and improving productivity. They hardly need a computer engineer who is motivated to earn a commission on a specific vendor's products. IT support and product selling can lead to a situation where the proposed solution is designed around a profitable technology rather than the true needs of a client. Progent avoids these dilemmas by offering only services rather than products. This enables Progent to align IT consulting with the best interests of clients.

What Makes Progent Different from Other Support Firms?
Progent is a Microsoft Partner support firm and Progent's staff size, range of IT background, fine tuned remote support software, and familiarity with enterprise networking allow companies to avoid the pitfalls of excessive reliance on smaller consulting firms, independent freelance consultants, or limited in-house resources.

Progent stands out by offering:

  • Value Pricing
    Progent's pricing model is to charge for phone support and on-site help by the minute. As a result, you pay just for received services.

Also, Progent imposes no startup fee and requires no monthly commitment for support services provided during regular business hours. Many service firms impose substantial minimum payments or charge for each fifteen minutes or longer. Progent's fine granularity does away with big invoices for fast solutions so you won't be forced to allow less critical problems to fester.

  • Information Transfer
    Progent practices knowledge transfer from Progent's support experts to customers. By educating customers to handle problems that are within their scope, Progent can focus on delivering hard-to-find services where Progent has few competitors. Companies who utilize trusted freelance consultants or who employ in-house IT personnel benefit when Progent passes on information about critical technology and proven methodologies to make their networks more robust, protected, and efficient.
