Benefits of Progent's IT Support for Businesses in Stamford
Progent's online IT consulting services enable your Stamford organization to experience the benefits of on-call, enterprise-class IT support without the cost of managing an in-house IT organization. Your information system will derive greater business worth by being more reliable, productive, and protected. Benefits to your business include:

  • Convenient remote extension of your on-site support resources
    For most businesses in Stamford or anywhere in Connecticut, local network service providers, whether represented by outside consultants or an internal IT staff, can deal with the majority of technical issues. On the other hand, serious problems can spring up when your regular resources are overstretched or absent, and some trouble may be associated with IT products that is unfamiliar to your local support people. In these cases, Progent's online support professionals provide a convenient, fast, and economical solution to supplement your local help and to pass on useful knowledge to improve your capability to handle downstream problems in-house.

  • Less Dependence on Individual Service Providers
    For network support, smaller companies commonly depend on independent freelance consultants. Although freelance service people have less internal costs than big service companies and can afford to charge marginally less, they are sometimes overextended, making it hard to respond rapidly to urgent situations. If an independent service provider is busy with another client, ill, on a trip, or in training, the absence of backup personnel may force your business to wait for help during an emergency. As your business grows, network downtime and trouble with vital applications become more expensive. The money you thought you were saving on a freelancer can be consumed quickly by lost productivity. Progent provides a dependable source of reserve support experts to insure your network remains up and running.

  • Create a Scalable Foundation for Smooth Expansion
    Organizations often begin with an IT architecture created on a shoestring budget. Without a strong framework, band-aid fixes can get piled on top of a shaky foundation. When a network grows, reliability and scalability problems can hinder the success of the business. Such poorly designed environments require careful analysis, smart long-term planning, and broad-based IT expertise to evolve to a network architecture that can deliver the solid foundation to meet current business requirements and facilitate future growth.

  • Interact with Solution Providers Rather Than Product Vendors
    Smaller offices need guidance and technical training to navigate through an ever more complex array of product options capable of promoting business growth and enhancing efficiency. These companies do not need a computer engineer who is trying to resell a specific vendor's technology. IT support and product selling can result in a situation where the proposed solution is built around a profitable product instead of the genuine requirements of a business. Progent avoids these conflicts of interest by offering only services instead of products. This enables Progent to match IT expertise with the real interests of clients.

What Makes Progent Different from Other Service Firms?
Progent is a Microsoft Partner consulting company and Progent's number of employees, breadth of IT knowledge, fine tuned support software, and familiarity with enterprise networking enable companies to escape the limitations associated with exclusive reliance on smaller service organizations, individual freelance consultants, or over-stretched internal IT help.
