Advantages of Progent's Network Help for Offices in Lawrence
Progent's online technical help services allow your Lawrence organization to enjoy the benefits of timely, enterprise-level network support without the expense of maintaining a full-time IT staff. Your network will acquire added business value by being increasingly available, productive, and protected. Benefits to your business include:

  • Convenient remote extension of your local support resources
    With most offices in Lawrence or anywhere in Massachusetts, local network support providers, whether consisting of freelance consultants or an internal IT staff, can take care of typical network problems. However, serious problems may spring up when your regular resources are overstretched or unavailable, and some trouble may stem from IT products that is unfamiliar to your onsite support technicians. In these instances, Progent's on-call support specialists provide an easy, quick, and economical solution to augment your regular resources and to pass on useful information to increase your capability to deal with downstream issues in-house.

  • Reduced Dependence on Individual Service Providers
    For network support, smaller businesses commonly rely on individual freelance consultants. While freelance service people have smaller internal costs than big consulting companies and can often charge lower rates, they are often stretched too thin, making it hard to respond rapidly to crisis situations. If an independent consultant is occupied with another client, ill, on a trip, or in class, the absence of reserve personnel may require your company to wait for assistance during an IT crisis. As your business expands, system unavailability and problems with critical software become more costly. The budget you thought you were conserving on a freelancer can be consumed quickly by lost productivity. Progent provides a dependable source of reserve support expertise to insure your network is always available.

  • Create a Solid Basis for Smooth Growth
    Organizations typically start with an information system created on a shoestring budget. Without a proper infrastructure, band-aid fixes can get thrown onto an unstable foundation. As a network grows, reliability and scalability problems can hinder the productivity of the organization. Such poorly built systems require proper analysis, smart long-term planning, and broad-based technical knowledge to evolve to a system infrastructure able to deliver the stable foundation to meet critical business demands and facilitate downstream growth.

  • Interact with Problem Solvers Rather Than Product Sellers
    Smaller companies need guidance and technical education to negotiate an ever more complex array of technology options capable of accelerating business growth and enhancing efficiency. They hardly need a computer consultant who is attempting to resell a certain vendor's technology. IT consulting and product sales can lead to a situation where the recommended solution is built around a profitable product rather than the true requirements of a business. Progent eliminates these conflicts by selling just services instead of products. This enables Progent to align IT expertise with the best interests of customers.

What Makes Progent Different from Other Service Firms?
Progent is a Microsoft Partner consulting company and Progent's staff size, range of IT experience, refined support tools, and understanding of corporate IT enable offices to avoid the limitations of exclusive reliance on smaller consulting organizations, individual freelance service providers, or limited internal IT help.
