Benefits of Progent's Network Help for Businesses in Seattle
Progent's online IT consulting services enable your Seattle organization to realize the advantages of immediate, enterprise-level network support without the cost of managing an in-house IT staff. Your information system will acquire greater business value by being more reliable, productive, and secure. Advantages to your company include:
- Seamless virtual extension of your on-site IT resources
For most businesses in Seattle and throughout Washington, nearby computer support resources, whether made up of freelance consultants or a full-time IT staff, can solve the majority of network issues. On the other hand, serious problems can strike when local resources are overstretched or absent, and some trouble may involve technology that is unfamiliar to your onsite support personnel. In these cases, Progent's on-call service professionals offer a convenient, quick, and budget-friendly solution to supplement your regular help and to pass on valuable knowledge to improve your ability to deal with future problems locally.
- Less Dependence on Individual Service Providers
For IT support, smaller companies often rely on individual freelance service providers. Although freelance service people have smaller internal costs than larger support firms and can often charge lower rates, they are sometimes overbooked, making it hard to respond rapidly to urgent situations. If a freelance consultant is occupied with another client, sick, on vacation, or in class, the lack of reserve help may require your company to go without help during an emergency. As your network grows, network unavailability and trouble with vital applications are more costly. The budget you thought you were saving on an independent can be eaten up quickly by lost productivity. Progent provides a dependable source of reserve support expertise to make sure your network stays up and running.
- Create a Scalable Foundation for Seamless Growth
Companies often begin with an information architecture implemented on a shoestring budget. Lacking a proper framework, slap-dash fixes can get piled on top of a shaky foundation. As a network grows, stability and scalability issues can impede the success of the organization. Such badly designed systems require proper assessment, smart strategic planning, and wide IT expertise to upgrade to a system infrastructure that can offer the solid foundation to handle current business requirements and ease future expansion.
- Interact with Problem Solvers Instead of Technology Vendors
Smaller companies require advice and technical education to negotiate an increasingly complex maze of technology options available for accelerating business growth and improving efficiency. They do not need a computer consultant who is attempting to earn a commission on a certain vendor's technology. Network consulting and product selling can lead to a situation where the recommended
solution is built around a profitable product rather than the true requirements of a business. Progent eliminates these dilemmas by selling just services rather than products. This allows Progent to match technical expertise with the best needs of customers.
How Is Progent Different from Other Service Organizations?
Progent is a Microsoft Certified Partner support firm and Progent's number of employees, depth of IT experience, refined remote support software, and familiarity with enterprise networking allow businesses to avoid the pitfalls associated with exclusive dependence on smaller service organizations, independent freelance service providers, or limited in-house resources.
Progent stands out by offering:
