Advantages of Progent's IT Support for Businesses in Spokane
Progent's online network troubleshooting services allow your Spokane business to realize the benefits of immediate, expert network support without the expense of managing an in-house IT organization. Your information system will acquire greater business value by becoming increasingly reliable, efficient, and secure. Advantages to your business include:

  • Convenient virtual extension of your on-site IT resources
    For most offices in Spokane or anywhere in Washington, local computer support resources, whether consisting of independent consultants or an in-house IT staff, can resolve typical technical problems. On the other hand, major troubles can strike when local resources are too busy or absent, and some problems may involve technology that is beyond the scope of your onsite support technicians. In these cases, Progent's on-call support experts give you an easy, quick, and budget-friendly way to augment your regular help and to transfer useful information to improve your capability to handle downstream issues in-house.

  • Less Reliance on Individual Consultants
    For IT support, smaller companies commonly depend on independent freelance service providers. While freelance consultants carry less overhead than big consulting companies and can afford to charge marginally less, they are often overbooked, making it difficult to respond rapidly to crisis situations. If a freelance service provider is busy with another customer, sick, on a trip, or in class, the lack of reserve help may force your company to wait for assistance during an IT crisis. As your company expands, system unavailability and problems with vital applications are more expensive. The money you thought you were conserving on a freelancer can be consumed quickly by lost productivity. Progent offers a reliable source of reserve support expertise to make sure your network is always up and running.

  • Build a Solid Basis for Seamless Growth
    Businesses typically start with an IT architecture created on a shoestring budget. Without a robust framework, band-aid repairs can get thrown on top of a shaky foundation. As a company grows, stability and expandability issues can impede the success of the business. Such badly designed environments require careful analysis, intelligent strategic planning, and wide IT knowledge to upgrade to a system infrastructure able to provide the stable foundation to meet critical business demands and facilitate future growth.

  • Interact with Problem Solvers Rather Than Technology Resellers
    Smaller companies require guidance and technical training to negotiate an ever more complex array of technology options capable of accelerating business growth and improving efficiency. These companies hardly need a computer engineer who is attempting to sell a certain vendor's products. IT support and product sales can lead to a scenario where the recommended solution is designed around a profitable product rather than the true needs of a business. Progent eliminates these conflicts of interest by offering only services rather than products. This allows Progent to match IT consulting with the best interests of customers.

What Makes Progent Different from Other Support Organizations?
Progent is a Microsoft Partner support company and Progent's head count, breadth of IT knowledge, fine tuned remote support tools, and understanding of corporate IT enable companies to avoid the limitations of exclusive dependence on smaller consulting organizations, independent freelance consultants, or limited in-house IT help.
