Advantages of Progent's Network Help for Businesses in Lawrence
Progent's remote network troubleshooting services enable your Lawrence organization to realize the advantages of timely, world-class network support without the cost of maintaining a full-time IT organization. Your information system will derive greater business value by being more reliable, efficient, and protected. Benefits to your business include:

  • Seamless virtual expansion of your local IT resources
    For most businesses in Lawrence and throughout Massachusetts, nearby network support providers, whether represented by outside consultants or an internal IT staff, can deal with typical network issues. On the other hand, major troubles sometimes occur when local resources are overstretched or absent, and some problems may be associated with technology that is beyond the scope of your usual service technicians. In these cases, Progent's on-call support specialists offer a convenient, fast, and economical way to supplement your local help and to convey useful information to improve your capability to deal with future issues in-house.

  • Less Dependence on Individual Service Providers
    For network maintenance, smaller organizations often rely on individual freelance service providers. While freelance consultants have smaller internal costs than big support firms and can afford to charge lower rates, they are occasionally overbooked, making it difficult to respond quickly to crisis situations. If an independent consultant is occupied with another client, ill, on a trip, or in class, the lack of backup help may force your business to go without help during an IT crisis. As your company expands, system downtime and trouble with critical software are more expensive. The budget you thought you were conserving on an independent can be consumed fast by reduced productivity. Progent provides a ready source of backup support experts to insure your network stays available.

  • Build a Scalable Basis for Seamless Expansion
    Businesses often begin with an information architecture implemented on a shoestring budget. Without a proper infrastructure, slap-dash repairs often get thrown on top of a shaky foundation. As a network grows, stability and scalability issues can hinder the success of the organization. These poorly designed environments need careful assessment, intelligent long-term planning, and wide technical knowledge to upgrade to a network architecture able to offer the solid foundation to meet current business demands and facilitate future expansion.

  • Work with Solution Providers Instead of Technology Sellers
    Smaller offices require advice and technical training to navigate through an increasingly complex array of technology alternatives capable of accelerating business success and enhancing productivity. Businesses hardly need a computer engineer who is attempting to sell a specific vendor's products. Network support and product sales can lead to a situation where the proposed solution is designed around a profitable product instead of the genuine requirements of a business. Progent eliminates these conflicts of interest by selling just services instead of products. This allows Progent to align IT expertise with the best interests of customers.

What Makes Progent Different from Other Service Firms?
Progent is a Microsoft Certified Partner support company and Progent's number of employees, breadth of IT experience, refined support software, and understanding of corporate IT enable companies to escape the pitfalls associated with exclusive dependence on smaller consulting firms, individual freelance service providers, or over-stretched in-house IT help.
