Benefits of Progent's Network Help for Offices in Buffalo
Progent's remote technical help services allow your Buffalo organization to experience the advantages of immediate, enterprise-class network support without the expense of managing a full-time IT organization. Your information system will derive greater strategic value by being increasingly reliable, productive, and protected. Benefits to your company include:

  • Seamless remote expansion of your local support resources
    For most organizations in Buffalo or anywhere in New York, nearby computer service resources, whether consisting of freelance consultants or an internal maintenance staff, can solve the majority of technical issues. On the other hand, major troubles can spring up when your regular support personnel are overstretched or absent, and some trouble may stem from IT products that is unfamiliar to your onsite support personnel. In these instances, Progent's online support specialists provide an easy, fast, and budget-friendly way to supplement your local help and to transfer useful information to increase your capability to handle future problems locally.

  • Reduced Reliance on Freelance Consultants
    For network support, smaller organizations often depend on individual freelance service providers. Although independent service people carry less internal costs than big support organizations and can afford to charge lower rates, they are occasionally overextended, making it impossible to respond quickly to crisis situations. If an independent consultant is busy with another client, ill, on vacation, or in training, the lack of reserve help may force your business to wait for assistance during an emergency. As your business expands, network unavailability and problems with vital applications are more expensive. The money you thought you were saving on an independent can be consumed fast by lost productivity. Progent offers a reliable source of backup support experts to make sure your IT system remains up and running.

  • Build a Solid Foundation for Smooth Expansion
    Organizations typically begin with an IT architecture implemented on a shoestring budget. Without a scalable framework, slap-dash fixes often get thrown on top of a weak foundation. As a network grows, reliability and scalability issues can impede the success of the business. Such poorly designed environments need careful analysis, smart strategic planning, and wide technical expertise to evolve to a system architecture able to deliver the solid foundation to handle current business demands and simplify future expansion.

  • Interact with Solution Providers Instead of Product Sellers
    Smaller businesses need advice and technical training to navigate through an increasingly complex maze of technology options available for accelerating business growth and enhancing productivity. These companies hardly need a computer consultant who is motivated to earn a commission on a certain vendor's products. IT consulting and product sales can lead to a scenario where the recommended solution is designed around a predetermined product instead of the genuine requirements of a business. Progent eliminates these dilemmas by offering just services rather than products. This enables Progent to align IT consulting with the real interests of clients.

How Is Progent Different from Other Service Organizations?
Progent is a Microsoft Certified Partner support firm and Progent's head count, depth of IT experience, fine tuned remote support tools, and familiarity with enterprise networking enable companies to escape the pitfalls associated with excessive reliance on smaller consulting firms, individual freelance consultants, or over-stretched in-house resources.
