Benefits of Progent's IT Support for Companies in Tacoma
Progent's online support services allow your Tacoma organization to realize the advantages of timely, expert IT support without the cost of managing a full-time IT staff. Your information system will derive greater business value by becoming more available, efficient, and protected. Benefits to your company include:

  • Convenient remote extension of your local IT resources
    For most companies in Tacoma or anywhere in Washington, local network support resources, whether consisting of freelance consultants or an in-house IT staff, can take care of the majority of network issues. However, IT crises sometimes strike when local resources are too busy or unavailable, and some problems may involve IT products that is unfamiliar to your usual support personnel. In these instances, Progent's online service experts offer a convenient, fast, and affordable solution to augment your regular help and to pass on useful information to improve your ability to resolve future issues in-house.

  • Reduced Reliance on Individual Service Providers
    For IT maintenance, smaller companies commonly rely on individual freelance consultants. Although independent service people have less overhead than big service companies and can afford to charge lower rates, they are often stretched too thin, making it difficult to respond quickly to urgent situations. If an independent service provider is busy with another customer, ill, on vacation, or in class, the lack of reserve help may require your company to go without assistance during an IT crisis. As your company grows, system unavailability and problems with vital software become more expensive. The budget you thought you were conserving on an independent can be consumed fast by lost productivity. Progent provides a dependable source of reserve service experts to insure your IT system is always up and running.

  • Build a Scalable Basis for Smooth Growth
    Organizations often start with an IT system created on a modest budget. Lacking a strong infrastructure, band-aid fixes often get thrown onto a weak foundation. When a network grows, reliability and scalability issues can hinder the productivity of the business. These badly designed systems need careful analysis, smart strategic planning, and extensive technical knowledge to evolve to a network architecture that can offer the stable foundation to meet vital business requirements and simplify downstream expansion.

  • Work with Problem Solvers Rather Than Technology Resellers
    Smaller organizations require advice and technical training to negotiate an increasingly complex array of product options available for promoting business growth and improving productivity. Businesses do not need a network consultant who is motivated to sell a specific vendor's products. Network support and product selling can lead to a scenario where the proposed solution is designed around a profitable technology instead of the genuine requirements of a client. Progent eliminates these conflicts by selling only services rather than products. This enables Progent to match technical consulting with the real needs of customers.

How Is Progent Different from Other Service Firms?
Progent is a Microsoft Certified Partner support firm and Progent's staff size, range of IT knowledge, fine tuned remote support tools, and understanding of corporate IT allow companies to escape the limitations associated with excessive reliance on smaller service organizations, individual freelance consultants, or limited in-house IT help.
