Benefits of Progent's Network Help for Businesses in Lawrence
Progent's online network troubleshooting services allow your Lawrence organization to experience the benefits of on-call, enterprise-grade network support without the cost of managing a full-time IT organization. Your network will derive added business worth by being increasingly available, efficient, and secure. Advantages to your company include:

  • Seamless virtual expansion of your on-site support resources
    For most businesses in Lawrence or anywhere in Massachusetts, local computer service providers, whether made up of freelance consultants or an internal maintenance staff, can resolve typical network problems. On the other hand, major troubles might strike when your regular support personnel are overstretched or absent, and some problems may stem from IT products that is beyond the scope of your onsite support people. In these instances, Progent's on-call support specialists give you a convenient, quick, and budget-friendly solution to supplement your regular help and to pass on useful information to improve your capability to handle downstream issues locally.

  • Reduced Dependence on Freelance Consultants
    For IT maintenance, smaller offices commonly depend on independent freelance consultants. While freelance consultants carry smaller overhead than big support firms and can afford to charge lower rates, they are sometimes overbooked, making it hard to respond rapidly to crisis situations. If a freelance consultant is busy with another customer, sick, on vacation, or in class, the absence of fallback help may require your business to wait for help during an emergency. As your network grows, network unavailability and problems with vital applications become more costly. The budget you thought you were saving on an independent can be eaten up quickly by lost productivity. Progent provides a dependable source of backup service experts to insure your IT system remains up and running.

  • Create a Scalable Basis for Seamless Expansion
    Companies often start with an IT architecture implemented on a modest budget. Lacking a proper infrastructure, band-aid fixes often get piled onto a shaky foundation. When a network grows, reliability and expandability problems can impede the success of the organization. Such poorly designed environments require proper analysis, intelligent strategic planning, and broad-based IT expertise to evolve to a system infrastructure that can provide the stable foundation to meet vital business requirements and facilitate future expansion.

  • Interact with Solution Providers Rather Than Product Sellers
    Smaller companies need advice and technical education to negotiate an ever more complicated array of product alternatives capable of accelerating business success and improving efficiency. Businesses do not need a computer consultant who is attempting to resell a specific vendor's products. Network consulting and product sales can result in a scenario where the recommended solution is built around a predetermined product instead of the true needs of a client. Progent avoids these conflicts by selling just services instead of products. This enables Progent to match IT consulting with the real needs of clients.

What Makes Progent Unique from Other Service Organizations?
Progent is a Microsoft Partner consulting firm and Progent's number of employees, depth of technical experience, fine tuned support software, and understanding of enterprise networking allow offices to avoid the pitfalls associated with excessive reliance on smaller service organizations, independent freelance consultants, or limited internal IT help.
