Advantages of Progent's Network Help for Offices in Buffalo New York
Progent's remote support services enable your Buffalo business to experience the benefits of timely, enterprise-class network support without the cost of managing an in-house IT organization. Your information system will acquire greater strategic worth by being more available, efficient, and protected. Benefits to your business include:
- Convenient remote extension of your local support resources
With most businesses in Buffalo New York, local computer service resources, whether consisting of outside consultants or a full-time IT staff, can handle typical network issues. However, IT crises can occur when local support personnel are too busy or unavailable, and some problems may be associated with IT products that is unfamiliar to your local support people. In these situations, Progent's online support specialists offer a convenient, fast, and budget-friendly solution to supplement your local help and to convey useful knowledge to increase your capability to deal with future problems in-house.
- Reduced Dependence on Individual Consultants
For network support, smaller organizations often rely on independent freelance consultants. Although freelance service people carry smaller internal costs than larger service companies and can afford to charge lower rates, they are occasionally overbooked, making it hard to respond rapidly to crisis situations. If an independent consultant is busy with another customer, sick, on vacation, or in class, the lack of fallback personnel may require your company to wait for assistance during an IT crisis. As your business expands, network downtime and problems with critical applications become more expensive. The budget you thought you were saving on a freelancer can be eaten up quickly by reduced productivity. Progent offers an on-call source of reserve service expertise to insure your network remains up and running.
- Create a Solid Foundation for Smooth Growth
Companies often start with an information architecture implemented on a modest budget. Without a robust infrastructure, band-aid repairs often get thrown onto a shaky foundation. As a network grows, stability and scalability issues can impede the success of the organization. These poorly designed systems require careful analysis, smart strategic planning, and wide IT expertise to evolve to a network architecture able to offer the stable foundation to meet vital business requirements and ease future growth.
- Work with Solution Providers Instead of Technology Resellers
Smaller companies require advice and technical education to negotiate an increasingly complicated maze of product alternatives available for accelerating business growth and improving productivity. These companies hardly need a network consultant who is motivated to sell a certain vendor's products. IT consulting and product sales can result in a situation where the proposed
solution is built around a profitable product instead of the true needs of a business. Progent eliminates these conflicts of interest by selling just services instead of products. This enables Progent to align technical expertise with the best interests of customers.
What Makes Progent Different from Other Service Firms?
Progent is a Microsoft Partner support company and Progent's number of employees, depth of technical experience, refined remote support tools, and understanding of corporate IT enable companies to avoid the pitfalls of exclusive dependence on smaller consulting firms, individual freelance consultants, or over-stretched internal resources.
