Advantages of Progent's Network Help for Organizations in Newark
Progent's online technical help services allow your Newark organization to realize the benefits of on-call, expert IT support without the cost of maintaining a full-time IT staff. Your network will acquire greater strategic value by becoming increasingly available, efficient, and protected. Benefits to your company include:
- Seamless remote expansion of your on-site IT resources
For most companies in Newark and throughout New Jersey, nearby computer service providers, whether represented by freelance consultants or an internal IT staff, can take care of the majority of network issues. However, serious problems may spring up when your regular support personnel are too busy or absent, and some trouble may involve technology that is beyond the scope of your local support technicians. In these cases, Progent's on-call service experts provide an easy, quick, and affordable solution to augment your regular help and to convey valuable information to increase your capability to handle downstream problems locally.
- Reduced Reliance on Individual Consultants
For network maintenance, smaller offices commonly rely on independent freelance service providers. While freelance consultants carry less internal costs than big service organizations and can often charge marginally less, they are occasionally overbooked, making it impossible to respond quickly to crisis situations. If a freelance service provider is occupied with another customer, sick, on a trip, or in class, the absence of fallback help may force your company to go without assistance during an IT crisis. As your network expands, system downtime and problems with critical applications are more costly. The money you thought you were saving on a freelancer can be eaten up fast by reduced productivity. Progent provides a reliable source of backup support expertise to make sure your network remains available.
- Create a Solid Basis for Seamless Expansion
Businesses typically start with an information architecture implemented on a modest budget. Without a proper framework, slap-dash fixes can get piled onto a shaky foundation. As a network grows, reliability and expandability problems can hinder the productivity of the organization. These badly designed environments require careful assessment, intelligent strategic planning, and broad-based technical expertise to evolve to a system infrastructure that can provide the solid foundation to handle critical business requirements and facilitate downstream expansion.
- Work with Solution Providers Rather Than Product Resellers
Smaller businesses need guidance and technical training to negotiate an ever more complex maze of technology alternatives capable of promoting business success and improving efficiency. Businesses do not need a computer engineer who is attempting to sell a specific vendor's technology. IT consulting and product selling can lead to a situation where the recommended
solution is designed around a profitable technology rather than the true requirements of a business. Progent avoids these conflicts by offering only services rather than products. This allows Progent to align technical consulting with the real needs of clients.
What Makes Progent Unique from Other Support Organizations?
Progent is a Microsoft Certified Partner support firm and Progent's head count, breadth of IT expertise, fine tuned support software, and familiarity with corporate IT allow companies to avoid the pitfalls associated with exclusive dependence on smaller service firms, individual freelance service providers, or over-stretched in-house resources.
Progent adds value by providing:
