Advantages of Progent's Network Help for Organizations in Rockville
Progent's online IT consulting services enable your Rockville company to experience the benefits of on-call, world-class network support without the expense of maintaining an in-house IT organization. Your information system will acquire greater business value by becoming increasingly available, efficient, and protected. Benefits to your company include:

  • Convenient remote expansion of your local IT resources
    For most businesses in Rockville or anywhere in Maryland, nearby computer support providers, whether represented by freelance consultants or an in-house maintenance staff, can solve typical network problems. On the other hand, IT crises can occur when your regular support personnel are overstretched or unavailable, and some trouble may be associated with technology that is unfamiliar to your usual service personnel. In these cases, Progent's on-call service professionals offer a convenient, fast, and affordable solution to supplement your local resources and to pass on valuable information to increase your ability to deal with downstream issues in-house.

  • Less Reliance on Individual Consultants
    For network maintenance, smaller businesses often rely on individual freelance service providers. While independent service people have less overhead than larger consulting companies and can often charge lower rates, they are occasionally overbooked, making it difficult to respond quickly to urgent situations. If an independent consultant is busy with another client, sick, on a trip, or in class, the absence of backup help may require your company to wait for assistance during an IT crisis. As your company grows, network unavailability and trouble with vital applications become more costly. The budget you thought you were conserving on an independent can be eaten up quickly by reduced productivity. Progent provides a ready source of backup service experts to make sure your IT system remains up and running.

  • Build a Scalable Foundation for Seamless Growth
    Organizations typically start with an IT architecture created on a modest budget. Without a strong framework, band-aid repairs can get thrown on top of an unstable foundation. As a company grows, stability and scalability problems can hinder the success of the organization. Such poorly designed environments require proper assessment, smart strategic planning, and broad-based IT knowledge to evolve to a system architecture able to deliver the stable foundation to meet critical business requirements and facilitate future growth.

  • Work with Solution Providers Instead of Technology Resellers
    Smaller offices need advice and technical education to negotiate an ever more complicated array of product options capable of promoting business growth and improving productivity. These companies do not need a network consultant who is motivated to resell a certain vendor's products. IT support and product selling can result in a situation where the proposed solution is designed around a profitable product rather than the true needs of a business. Progent avoids these conflicts by selling just services rather than products. This enables Progent to align technical expertise with the best needs of clients.

What Makes Progent Unique from Other Service Organizations?
Progent is a Microsoft Partner support firm and Progent's number of employees, breadth of technical experience, refined remote support tools, and familiarity with enterprise networking allow companies to escape the limitations associated with exclusive dependence on smaller consulting organizations, independent freelance service providers, or limited internal resources.
