Advantages of Progent's Network Help for Companies in Portland
Progent's remote technical help services allow your Portland business to realize the benefits of on-call, enterprise-class network support without the expense of managing an in-house IT organization. Your network will derive added business value by becoming more available, productive, and protected. Advantages to your company include:

  • Seamless virtual expansion of your on-site support resources
    For most organizations in Portland or anywhere in Oregon, local computer service resources, whether consisting of freelance consultants or a full-time maintenance staff, can take care of the majority of technical problems. However, serious problems may strike when local support personnel are overstretched or absent, and some problems may involve IT products that is beyond the scope of your local service personnel. In these situations, Progent's on-call support experts give you a convenient, quick, and affordable way to augment your regular resources and to pass on useful information to increase your capability to deal with future issues in-house.

  • Less Reliance on Individual Consultants
    For network support, smaller companies commonly depend on independent freelance service providers. While freelance service people have less internal costs than big support organizations and can often charge marginally less, they are often overextended, making it hard to respond rapidly to urgent situations. If an independent consultant is busy with another customer, sick, on a trip, or in training, the absence of reserve personnel may force your company to wait for help during an emergency. As your company expands, network downtime 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 offers a reliable source of reserve service expertise to insure your network is always available.

  • Build a Scalable Basis for Smooth Growth
    Organizations often begin with an IT architecture created on a shoestring budget. Without a scalable infrastructure, band-aid repairs often get thrown on top of an unstable foundation. As a network grows, reliability and expandability problems can impede the productivity of the organization. These badly built environments require proper assessment, smart long-term planning, and broad-based IT knowledge to evolve to a system infrastructure that can offer the stable foundation to handle vital business requirements and ease future growth.

  • Interact with Solution Providers Rather Than Technology Sellers
    Smaller businesses require advice and technical training to navigate through an ever more complicated maze of technology options capable of accelerating business growth and improving productivity. They hardly need a computer engineer who is motivated to resell a specific vendor's products. Network consulting and product selling can result in a scenario where the proposed solution is built around a predetermined product rather than the true needs of a business. Progent avoids these conflicts of interest by selling just services rather than products. This allows Progent to align technical expertise with the real needs of clients.

How Is Progent Different from Other Service Firms?
Progent is a Microsoft Partner support firm and Progent's head count, depth of technical expertise, fine tuned support software, and understanding of corporate IT enable companies to escape the pitfalls associated with exclusive dependence on smaller service organizations, individual freelance consultants, or limited in-house IT help.
