Advantages of Progent's IT Support for Businesses in Rochester
Progent's remote support services enable your Rochester company to enjoy the benefits of timely, expert network support without the cost of managing a full-time IT organization. Your network will acquire added business worth by being increasingly available, productive, and secure. Advantages to your business include:

  • Convenient remote expansion of your on-site support resources
    With most businesses in Rochester and throughout New York, nearby network support resources, whether consisting of independent consultants or an in-house maintenance staff, can resolve the majority of technical problems. However, serious problems may occur when your regular support personnel are too busy or absent, and some problems may be associated with IT products that is unfamiliar to your onsite support technicians. In these instances, Progent's online service experts give you an easy, fast, and budget-friendly solution to supplement your local resources and to transfer useful knowledge to increase your ability to resolve downstream issues locally.

  • Reduced Dependence on Individual Service Providers
    For network support, smaller companies commonly rely on individual freelance service providers. Although independent consultants have smaller internal costs than big consulting firms and can afford to charge marginally less, they are sometimes overbooked, making it hard to respond rapidly to crisis situations. If an independent service provider is occupied with another customer, sick, on vacation, or in class, the lack of fallback help may require your business to go without assistance during an IT crisis. As your company expands, network unavailability and trouble with vital software are more expensive. The money you thought you were conserving on an independent can be consumed quickly by lost productivity. Progent provides a ready source of reserve support expertise to insure your IT system is always up and running.

  • Create a Solid Basis for Smooth Expansion
    Companies often start with an IT architecture implemented on a modest budget. Without a scalable infrastructure, band-aid fixes often get thrown on top of a weak foundation. As a network grows, reliability and scalability issues can impede the success of the organization. These badly built systems require proper assessment, intelligent strategic planning, and extensive technical expertise to upgrade to a network infrastructure that can deliver the solid foundation to handle critical business requirements and ease downstream expansion.

  • Interact with Solution Providers Rather Than Product Sellers
    Smaller organizations require advice and technical training to negotiate an increasingly complicated maze of technology alternatives capable of promoting business success and improving productivity. They do not need a network engineer who is motivated to resell a specific vendor's products. Network consulting and product sales can result in a situation where the recommended solution is designed around a profitable technology rather than the genuine requirements of a client. Progent avoids these conflicts by offering only services rather than products. This allows Progent to match technical consulting with the best needs of customers.

Progent is a Microsoft Partner support firm and Progent's head count, range of technical experience, refined support software, and familiarity with enterprise networking allow businesses to avoid the limitations of exclusive reliance on smaller service firms, independent freelance consultants, or over-stretched internal resources.
