Advantages of Progent's Network Help for Companies in Buffalo
Progent's online IT consulting services allow your Buffalo business to realize the benefits of on-call, world-class network support without the cost of maintaining an in-house IT organization. Your information system will derive added business value by becoming more reliable, efficient, and secure. Benefits to your company include:

  • Seamless virtual expansion of your on-site IT resources
    For most companies in Buffalo or anywhere in New York, nearby network service providers, whether made up of freelance consultants or an in-house IT staff, can solve typical network problems. On the other hand, serious problems may spring up when your regular support personnel are too busy or absent, and some trouble may involve technology that is unfamiliar to your onsite service people. In these cases, Progent's online support experts give you an easy, quick, and affordable way to augment your regular resources and to pass on useful knowledge to increase your capability to handle downstream problems in-house.

  • Reduced Reliance on Individual Service Providers
    For IT support, smaller organizations often rely on individual freelance consultants. While independent consultants have smaller internal costs than larger service organizations and can often charge lower rates, they are occasionally stretched too thin, making it hard to respond rapidly to urgent situations. If an independent consultant is busy with another customer, sick, on vacation, or in training, the absence of backup help may force your business to wait for help during an emergency. As your company expands, network unavailability and trouble with vital applications become more costly. The budget you thought you were saving on a freelancer can be consumed quickly by lost productivity. Progent provides an on-call source of backup support experts to insure your IT system remains available.

  • Build a Scalable Foundation for Smooth Growth
    Organizations typically begin with an information architecture created on a modest budget. Without a robust framework, band-aid repairs can get thrown on top of a shaky foundation. As a company grows, stability and expandability problems can hinder the success of the business. Such poorly built systems need proper analysis, smart long-term planning, and extensive IT knowledge to upgrade to a system architecture able to offer the solid foundation to meet current business requirements and ease downstream growth.

  • Work with Problem Solvers Instead of Product Vendors
    Smaller companies require guidance and technical education to navigate through an increasingly complicated maze of product alternatives capable of promoting business success and improving productivity. These companies do not need a computer engineer who is attempting to earn a commission on a specific vendor's technology. IT support and product selling can result in a scenario where the proposed solution is designed around a profitable product instead of the true requirements of a business. Progent avoids these dilemmas by selling just services rather than products. This allows Progent to match technical expertise with the real interests of customers.

How Is Progent Different from Other Service Firms?
Progent is a Microsoft Certified Partner support company and Progent's staff size, depth of technical background, refined remote support software, and understanding of corporate IT allow companies to avoid the pitfalls of exclusive reliance on smaller service firms, independent freelance service providers, or limited in-house resources.
