For companies and new ventures in Waltham or throughout the state of Massachusetts, Progent's phone-based computer support engineers can provide effective and cost-effective system help whenever your organization requires it. Long experience offering online tech support has led to Microsoft Partner certification for Progent's consultants and has helped Progent to acquire high-end troubleshooting skills and to refine remote access tools to repair network problems rapidly while eliminating the cost and lost time that comes with on-premises service visits.

Advantages of Progent's Network Help for Organizations in Waltham
Progent's online IT consulting services enable your Waltham business to experience the advantages of on-call, enterprise-grade IT support without the cost of maintaining an in-house IT organization. Your information system will derive added strategic value by becoming more available, efficient, and secure. Advantages to your business include:

  • Convenient remote extension of your local IT resources
    With most organizations in Waltham and throughout Massachusetts, nearby network support providers, whether made up of independent consultants or an internal IT staff, can handle the majority of network problems. However, serious problems may strike when local resources are too busy or absent, and some problems may be associated with IT products that is beyond the scope of your usual service technicians. In these cases, Progent's on-call support professionals give you a convenient, fast, and economical solution to supplement your regular resources and to transfer valuable knowledge to increase your capability to deal with future problems locally.

  • Reduced Reliance on Freelance Consultants
    For IT maintenance, smaller organizations often depend on individual freelance consultants. While freelance consultants have smaller internal costs than larger service companies and can often charge lower rates, they are often overbooked, making it difficult to respond rapidly to crisis situations. If a freelance consultant is busy with another client, sick, on vacation, or in training, the lack of backup help may force your company to go without help during an emergency. As your network grows, system downtime and trouble with critical applications are more expensive. The money you thought you were conserving on an independent can be eaten up fast by reduced productivity. Progent offers a reliable source of backup service experts to make sure your network remains available.

  • Build a Scalable Foundation for Seamless Expansion
    Organizations typically begin with an IT architecture created on a shoestring budget. Lacking a scalable framework, slap-dash fixes can get thrown onto an unstable foundation. As a company grows, stability and scalability problems can hinder the productivity of the business. Such badly built systems require careful analysis, smart strategic planning, and broad-based IT expertise to upgrade to a network infrastructure able to provide the solid foundation to handle vital business demands and ease future expansion.

  • Work with Problem Solvers Rather Than Product Vendors
    Smaller offices require guidance and technical education to negotiate an increasingly complicated maze of technology options capable of accelerating business success and enhancing efficiency. Businesses do not need a network consultant who is attempting to earn a commission on a certain vendor's products. IT support and product sales can lead to a scenario where the proposed solution is built around a predetermined technology instead of the true requirements of a business. Progent avoids these conflicts of interest by selling only services instead of products. This allows Progent to align IT expertise with the real needs of customers.

What Makes Progent Different from Other Support Firms?
Progent is a Microsoft Partner consulting firm and Progent's head count, range of technical knowledge, refined remote support software, and understanding of corporate IT allow companies to avoid the pitfalls associated with exclusive reliance on smaller service firms, independent freelance service providers, or limited in-house resources.
