Advantages of Progent's Network Help for Companies in Lower Manhattan
Progent's online network troubleshooting services enable your Lower Manhattan company to experience the benefits of immediate, enterprise-level IT support without the expense of maintaining a full-time IT organization. Your information system will derive added strategic worth by becoming increasingly available, efficient, and protected. Benefits to your company include:

  • Convenient remote extension of your local support resources
    With most organizations in Lower Manhattan or anywhere in New York, nearby computer service resources, whether made up of freelance consultants or a full-time maintenance staff, can handle typical network problems. However, major troubles sometimes strike when your regular support personnel are overstretched or absent, and some trouble may involve IT products that is unfamiliar to your local service personnel. In these situations, Progent's on-call service professionals give you an easy, fast, and affordable way to supplement your local help and to pass on valuable knowledge to increase your capability to resolve future issues in-house.

  • Less Reliance on Freelance Consultants
    For IT support, smaller organizations commonly rely on individual freelance service providers. Although freelance consultants carry smaller internal costs than larger consulting companies and can afford to charge lower rates, they are occasionally overbooked, making it difficult to respond quickly to crisis situations. If a freelance consultant is occupied with another customer, ill, on a trip, or in class, the lack of fallback help may require your business to go without help during an IT crisis. As your network grows, system unavailability and problems with vital software are more costly. The money you thought you were conserving on an independent can be eaten up quickly by lost productivity. Progent provides a ready source of reserve service experts to make sure your network stays up and running.

  • Create a Solid Foundation for Smooth Expansion
    Companies often begin with an IT architecture created on a shoestring budget. Without a scalable framework, band-aid repairs often get piled on top of an unstable foundation. When a company grows, reliability and scalability problems can impede the productivity of the business. Such badly designed systems require careful assessment, smart long-term planning, and broad-based IT expertise to upgrade to a network architecture able to provide the stable foundation to meet critical business demands and facilitate future growth.

  • Interact with Problem Solvers Rather Than Product Resellers
    Smaller offices need guidance and technical training to negotiate an increasingly complex maze of technology alternatives available for accelerating business success and enhancing efficiency. They hardly need a network engineer who is attempting to earn a commission on a specific vendor's products. IT support and product selling can result in a scenario where the proposed solution is built around a predetermined technology rather than the true needs of a business. Progent avoids these conflicts of interest by offering only services instead of products. This enables Progent to align IT expertise with the real interests of customers.

What Makes Progent Different from Other Support Firms?
Progent is a Microsoft Partner consulting company and Progent's number of employees, breadth of technical background, fine tuned remote support tools, and understanding of enterprise networking enable businesses to escape the pitfalls of excessive reliance on smaller service organizations, individual freelance consultants, or limited internal IT help.
