Advantages of Progent's Network Help for Organizations in Detroit
Progent's online IT consulting services allow your Detroit company to realize the advantages of immediate, enterprise-grade network support without the expense of maintaining a full-time IT organization. Your information system will acquire added business value by becoming increasingly available, productive, and protected. Benefits to your company include:

  • Convenient remote extension of your local support resources
    With most offices in Detroit and throughout Michigan, local computer service resources, whether made up of outside consultants or an internal maintenance staff, can take care of typical technical problems. However, major troubles sometimes strike when local resources are overstretched or absent, and some problems may stem from IT products that is unfamiliar to your usual support people. In these cases, Progent's online support specialists give you an easy, quick, and affordable solution to augment your local resources and to transfer useful knowledge to increase your capability to deal with downstream problems in-house.

  • Less Reliance on Freelance Consultants
    For IT support, smaller businesses commonly depend on independent freelance service providers. While independent service people have smaller overhead than big support organizations and can afford to charge marginally less, they are occasionally stretched too thin, making it impossible to respond rapidly to urgent situations. If an independent consultant is busy with another customer, sick, on a trip, or in class, the absence of backup help may require your company to wait for help during an emergency. As your business expands, system unavailability and trouble with vital software become more expensive. The budget you thought you were saving on a freelancer can be eaten up fast by reduced productivity. Progent offers a dependable source of backup support expertise to make sure your network stays available.

  • Build a Solid Basis for Seamless Expansion
    Companies often start with an IT architecture created on a modest budget. Without a proper framework, slap-dash repairs can get thrown on top of a weak foundation. When a network grows, stability and expandability problems can hinder the success of the organization. These badly designed environments require proper analysis, intelligent strategic planning, and broad-based IT knowledge to evolve to a system architecture able to provide the stable foundation to meet vital business requirements and simplify downstream growth.

  • Interact with Solution Providers Instead of Product Vendors
    Smaller companies require advice and technical education to navigate through an increasingly complex maze of product options available for accelerating business success and enhancing productivity. They do not need a network engineer who is trying to sell a certain vendor's technology. Network support and product sales can lead to a scenario where the proposed solution is designed around a predetermined technology rather than the true needs of a business. Progent eliminates these dilemmas by selling just services rather than products. This enables Progent to match IT expertise with the best needs of clients.

Progent is a Microsoft Gold Certified Partner consulting firm and Progent's head count, range of technical background, fine tuned remote support software, and understanding of enterprise networking allow businesses to avoid the limitations of exclusive dependence on smaller consulting firms, individual freelance service providers, or over-stretched internal IT help.
