Benefits of Progent's IT Support for Organizations in Rochester
Progent's remote IT consulting services enable your Rochester business to enjoy the benefits of timely, enterprise-grade IT support without the cost of managing a full-time IT staff. Your information system will acquire greater business worth by being more reliable, productive, and secure. Benefits to your company include:

  • Convenient virtual expansion of your local support resources
    With most offices in Rochester and throughout New York, local computer support providers, whether made up of independent consultants or a full-time maintenance staff, can handle typical technical issues. On the other hand, major troubles might strike when local resources are too busy or absent, and some trouble may stem from technology that is beyond the scope of your local service personnel. In these situations, Progent's on-call service professionals provide a convenient, quick, and budget-friendly solution to supplement your local help and to pass on useful information to improve your ability to deal with future issues locally.

  • Less Dependence on Freelance Consultants
    For IT support, smaller offices often depend on independent freelance service providers. While freelance service people carry less internal costs than big consulting firms and can often charge lower rates, they are sometimes stretched too thin, making it difficult to respond quickly to crisis situations. If an independent service provider is occupied with another customer, ill, on a trip, or in training, the lack of fallback help may require your company to go without help during an emergency. As your business grows, network unavailability and trouble with critical software become more expensive. The budget you thought you were saving on an independent can be eaten up quickly by reduced productivity. Progent provides a ready source of backup service expertise to insure your IT system remains up and running.

  • Build a Scalable Foundation for Smooth Growth
    Companies typically start with an information system created on a modest budget. Lacking a scalable infrastructure, slap-dash repairs can get thrown on top of an unstable foundation. As a company grows, reliability and expandability problems can impede the success of the organization. Such poorly designed environments need careful analysis, intelligent long-term planning, and wide IT expertise to upgrade to a network architecture that can offer the stable foundation to meet vital business requirements and ease future expansion.

  • Interact with Solution Providers Instead of Technology Vendors
    Smaller organizations require guidance and technical education to navigate through an increasingly complex maze of product options capable of accelerating business growth and improving efficiency. They do not need a network engineer who is trying to earn a commission on a certain vendor's technology. Network consulting and product selling can lead to a situation where the proposed solution is built around a profitable technology rather than the genuine requirements of a business. Progent avoids these dilemmas by offering only services instead of products. This enables Progent to align IT expertise with the real interests of customers.

How Is Progent Different from Other Support Organizations?
Progent is a Microsoft Partner consulting firm and Progent's head count, depth of IT knowledge, fine tuned remote support tools, and understanding of enterprise networking allow offices to escape the limitations associated with exclusive reliance on smaller consulting firms, independent freelance service providers, or limited in-house resources.
