Advantages of Progent's Network Help for Offices in Lynnwood
Progent's remote IT consulting services enable your Lynnwood company to enjoy the advantages of timely, enterprise-grade network support without the cost of maintaining a full-time IT organization. Your network will acquire added business value by being increasingly available, productive, and secure. Benefits to your business include:

  • Convenient virtual extension of your local support resources
    With most offices in Lynnwood and throughout Washington, local network service providers, whether made up of freelance consultants or an internal maintenance staff, can handle the majority of network issues. However, serious problems sometimes strike when local resources are overstretched or unavailable, and some problems may stem from technology that is unfamiliar to your local support personnel. In these instances, Progent's on-call service experts give you a convenient, quick, and economical solution to supplement your local resources and to pass on valuable information to increase your ability to deal with downstream issues locally.

  • Less Reliance on Individual Consultants
    For network maintenance, smaller businesses often depend on independent freelance consultants. Although freelance consultants carry smaller overhead than larger service organizations and can often charge lower rates, they are sometimes stretched too thin, making it hard to respond rapidly to urgent situations. If an independent consultant is occupied with another customer, ill, on vacation, or in training, the absence of backup help may require your company to go without assistance during an emergency. As your network grows, system unavailability and problems with vital applications are more costly. The money 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 IT system remains up and running.

  • Build a Scalable Foundation for Smooth Expansion
    Businesses typically start with an IT system created on a modest budget. Lacking a proper framework, band-aid fixes often get thrown onto an unstable foundation. As a company grows, reliability and scalability issues can hinder the success of the business. These badly built systems need proper analysis, intelligent long-term planning, and extensive technical expertise to evolve to a network architecture that can provide the stable foundation to handle vital business requirements and simplify future expansion.

  • Work with Solution Providers Instead of Technology Sellers
    Smaller businesses need guidance and technical education to navigate through an increasingly complex array of product options capable of promoting business growth and improving productivity. Businesses hardly need a computer engineer who is attempting to earn a commission on a specific vendor's technology. IT support and product selling can result in a scenario where the recommended solution is built around a profitable technology rather than the true requirements of a client. Progent avoids these conflicts of interest by offering only services instead of products. This enables Progent to align technical expertise with the best interests of clients.

How Is Progent Different from Other Service Firms?
Progent is a Microsoft Partner support company and Progent's number of employees, depth of technical expertise, refined support software, and understanding of corporate IT allow offices to escape the limitations associated with excessive dependence on smaller service firms, independent freelance consultants, or limited internal resources.
