Benefits of Progent's IT Support for Businesses in Portland
Progent's remote IT consulting services allow your Portland organization to have the advantages of immediate, enterprise-level network support without the expense of maintaining an in-house IT staff. Your information system will acquire added strategic worth by being more available, efficient, and secure. Advantages to your company include:

  • Convenient remote expansion of your on-site IT resources
    With most organizations in Portland or anywhere in Oregon, local computer service providers, whether represented by independent consultants or an internal maintenance staff, can deal with typical network problems. On the other hand, serious problems can spring up when your regular resources are too busy or absent, and some trouble may stem from IT products that is beyond the scope of your usual service personnel. In these cases, Progent's online service experts give you a convenient, quick, and budget-friendly solution to augment your regular resources and to transfer valuable information to improve your ability to resolve downstream problems in-house.

  • Reduced Reliance on Individual Service Providers
    For network maintenance, smaller offices often rely on independent freelance consultants. While freelance service people have less overhead than larger consulting companies and can afford to charge marginally less, they are occasionally stretched too thin, making it difficult to respond rapidly to crisis situations. If a freelance service provider is occupied with another customer, sick, on vacation, or in class, the absence of reserve help may require your business to wait for assistance during an IT crisis. As your network grows, system unavailability and trouble with vital applications are more costly. The money you thought you were conserving on an independent can be consumed fast by reduced productivity. Progent provides a reliable source of reserve service experts to insure your IT system remains available.

  • Create a Solid Foundation for Seamless Growth
    Companies often begin with an IT system created on a modest budget. Lacking a strong framework, slap-dash repairs often get piled onto an unstable foundation. As a network grows, stability and expandability issues can impede the success of the business. Such poorly designed environments require proper assessment, smart long-term planning, and broad-based technical knowledge to upgrade to a system architecture that can offer the solid foundation to meet current business requirements and ease future expansion.

  • Work with Problem Solvers Instead of Technology Vendors
    Smaller companies require advice and technical education to navigate through an ever more complex array of product options capable of accelerating business success and improving productivity. Businesses hardly need a computer engineer who is attempting to resell a specific vendor's technology. IT support and product sales can lead to a scenario where the recommended solution is designed around a profitable technology instead of the genuine requirements of a client. Progent eliminates these dilemmas by selling only services rather than products. This allows Progent to align IT consulting with the real interests of customers.

What Makes Progent Unique from Other Service Organizations?
Progent is a Microsoft Partner consulting firm and Progent's staff size, breadth of IT expertise, fine tuned remote support tools, and understanding of enterprise networking allow offices to avoid the pitfalls associated with excessive reliance on smaller service firms, individual freelance service providers, or limited in-house IT help.
