Advantages of Progent's Network Help for Companies in Reston
Progent's online IT consulting services allow your Reston company to realize the advantages of timely, enterprise-grade network support without the cost of managing a full-time IT organization. Your network will acquire added business worth by becoming increasingly available, efficient, and protected. Advantages to your company include:

  • Convenient virtual expansion of your on-site support resources
    With most offices in Reston and throughout Virginia, nearby network support providers, whether made up of freelance consultants or an in-house maintenance staff, can take care of the majority of technical problems. On the other hand, IT crises may occur when local support personnel are overstretched or absent, and some problems may be associated with technology that is beyond the scope of your onsite support technicians. In these cases, Progent's online service experts offer an easy, quick, and budget-friendly solution to augment your regular help and to convey valuable knowledge to improve your ability to handle future problems in-house.

  • Reduced Reliance on Freelance Service Providers
    For IT support, smaller organizations commonly rely on individual freelance consultants. While independent service people carry less internal costs than big service firms and can afford to charge marginally less, they are sometimes overbooked, making it difficult to respond quickly to urgent situations. If an independent service provider is busy with another client, ill, on a trip, or in class, the absence of fallback help may require your company to wait for help during an emergency. As your network expands, network unavailability and trouble with critical applications are more expensive. The money you thought you were saving on a freelancer can be consumed quickly by reduced productivity. Progent offers a reliable source of reserve service experts to make sure your network remains up and running.

  • Build a Solid Foundation for Smooth Growth
    Businesses often begin with an IT system created on a shoestring budget. Lacking a robust framework, band-aid repairs often get thrown onto a weak foundation. When a company grows, reliability and scalability issues can impede the success of the business. These badly built systems need careful analysis, intelligent strategic planning, and extensive technical expertise to evolve to a system architecture that can offer the stable foundation to meet critical business requirements and simplify future expansion.

  • Interact with Solution Providers Instead of Product Sellers
    Smaller businesses require advice and technical education to negotiate an ever more complex array of product alternatives capable of accelerating business success and improving productivity. These companies do not need a computer engineer who is attempting to sell a specific vendor's products. Network consulting and product selling can result in a scenario where the recommended solution is designed around a profitable technology rather than the true requirements of a client. Progent avoids these dilemmas by selling just services instead of products. This enables Progent to align IT expertise with the real interests of customers.

What Makes Progent Different from Other Support Firms?
Progent is a Microsoft Partner support firm and Progent's staff size, depth of IT background, fine tuned remote support tools, and understanding of corporate IT enable offices to escape the limitations associated with excessive dependence on smaller service organizations, independent freelance service providers, or over-stretched in-house resources.
