Advantages of Progent's IT Support for Offices in New York City
Progent's online support services enable your New York City business to realize the advantages of immediate, enterprise-grade network support without the expense of managing a full-time IT staff. Your information system will acquire added strategic value by being more available, productive, and secure. Advantages to your company include:

  • Seamless remote extension of your local support resources
    With most organizations in New York City or anywhere in New York, nearby computer support providers, whether consisting of outside consultants or a full-time IT staff, can solve typical technical problems. On the other hand, major troubles may occur when local support personnel are overstretched or absent, and some trouble may stem from IT products that is beyond the scope of your usual service people. In these situations, Progent's on-call service experts provide an easy, quick, and budget-friendly solution to augment your regular help and to transfer valuable knowledge to improve your capability to resolve future issues locally.

  • Less Dependence on Individual Service Providers
    For network support, smaller offices often depend on individual freelance consultants. While freelance consultants have less overhead than larger service companies and can often charge lower rates, they are sometimes stretched too thin, making it difficult to respond rapidly to urgent situations. If an independent consultant is occupied with another client, ill, on vacation, or in training, the absence of backup personnel may force your business to go without assistance during an IT crisis. As your business grows, network unavailability and trouble with critical software are more costly. The money you thought you were saving on a freelancer can be eaten up fast by reduced productivity. Progent provides an on-call source of backup service expertise to insure your network stays up and running.

  • Create a Solid Foundation for Smooth Growth
    Organizations typically start with an IT system created on a modest budget. Without a robust framework, slap-dash fixes can get piled onto a weak foundation. When a network grows, reliability and scalability issues can impede the success of the business. These poorly designed environments need proper analysis, smart long-term planning, and extensive technical knowledge to upgrade to a network infrastructure that can deliver the stable foundation to handle critical business demands and facilitate downstream expansion.

  • Work with Solution Providers Rather Than Product Resellers
    Smaller businesses need guidance and technical training to navigate through an ever more complicated array of technology options capable of accelerating business growth and enhancing efficiency. These companies hardly need a network consultant who is attempting to resell a specific vendor's products. IT support and product sales can lead to a scenario where the recommended solution is designed around a predetermined technology rather than the true requirements of a business. Progent eliminates these conflicts by offering only services instead of products. This allows Progent to align technical consulting with the best interests of clients.

How Is Progent Different from Other Support Organizations?
Progent is a Microsoft Partner support company and Progent's number of employees, range of IT expertise, fine tuned remote support tools, and familiarity with corporate IT allow offices to avoid the pitfalls of excessive reliance on smaller service organizations, individual freelance service providers, or limited internal resources.

Progent adds value by offering:

  • Complete Records of Delivered Services

Each Progent consultant has access to the support reports transmitted by each staff member to every client. The discipline of detailing and organizing service records results in more efficient service and avoids a variety of typical misfortunes such as when a support customer is virtually held hostage to a consultant who wonít release the keys to the kingdom.

  • Automated Server Monitoring with MS Operations Manager
    Progent is one of the only IT service firms to offer 24x7 system tracking services powered by MS Operations Manager.
