Advantages of Progent's Network Help for Companies in Charlotte
Progent's remote technical help services enable your Charlotte organization to have the advantages of on-call, world-class IT support without the cost of maintaining a full-time IT staff. Your network will acquire added strategic worth by being more available, efficient, and protected. Advantages to your company include:

  • Convenient virtual expansion of your on-site IT resources
    For most businesses in Charlotte and throughout North Carolina, nearby network service providers, whether made up of outside consultants or an in-house IT staff, can solve typical network problems. On the other hand, IT crises may spring up when your regular support personnel are too busy or unavailable, and some problems may be associated with technology that is beyond the scope of your local service personnel. In these instances, Progent's on-call service experts provide an easy, quick, and economical way to augment your local help and to transfer useful information to increase your ability to deal with future issues locally.

  • Less Reliance on Freelance Service Providers
    For IT maintenance, smaller companies commonly rely on individual freelance consultants. Although independent consultants carry smaller internal costs than larger consulting organizations and can afford to charge marginally less, they are sometimes stretched too thin, making it hard to respond quickly to urgent situations. If a freelance service provider is busy with another customer, ill, on a trip, or in class, the absence of fallback personnel may require your business to wait for assistance during an emergency. As your business grows, network downtime and problems with vital applications become more expensive. The budget you thought you were conserving on an independent can be eaten up quickly by lost productivity. Progent offers a dependable source of reserve service expertise to make sure your network remains available.

  • Build a Solid Basis for Seamless Growth
    Businesses typically start with an IT system created on a shoestring budget. Without a proper infrastructure, band-aid fixes can get piled onto a weak foundation. When a company grows, stability and expandability issues can hinder the productivity of the organization. Such badly designed environments need proper analysis, intelligent strategic planning, and broad-based IT knowledge to evolve to a system infrastructure that can provide the solid foundation to meet critical business demands and simplify future growth.

  • Work with Problem Solvers Instead of Product Vendors
    Smaller companies require guidance and technical training to negotiate an increasingly complicated maze of product options capable of promoting business success and enhancing efficiency. Businesses do not need a network engineer who is motivated to earn a commission on a specific vendor's technology. Network support and product sales can lead to a situation where the recommended solution is built around a profitable product instead of the genuine needs of a client. Progent avoids these conflicts by offering only services instead of products. This enables Progent to align IT expertise with the best interests of customers.

How Is Progent Unique from Other Service Firms?
Progent is a Microsoft Gold Certified Partner consulting firm and Progent's number of employees, depth of IT background, fine tuned remote support tools, and understanding of enterprise networking enable businesses to avoid the pitfalls of exclusive reliance on smaller consulting firms, independent freelance consultants, or over-stretched in-house resources.
