Benefits of Progent's Network Help for Offices in Durham
Progent's remote network troubleshooting services allow your Durham organization to experience the benefits of on-call, enterprise-level IT support without the cost of managing an in-house IT organization. Your network will derive added business worth by becoming increasingly reliable, efficient, and protected. Benefits to your company include:

  • Seamless remote expansion of your local IT resources
    For most offices in Durham and throughout North Carolina, local network service resources, whether consisting of freelance consultants or a full-time maintenance staff, can solve typical technical issues. On the other hand, serious problems might spring up when your regular support personnel are too busy or unavailable, and some problems may involve IT products that is beyond the scope of your local support personnel. In these cases, Progent's online service professionals offer a convenient, fast, and budget-friendly way to supplement your regular resources and to convey useful information to increase your capability to resolve future problems locally.

  • Reduced Dependence on Freelance Service Providers
    For network support, smaller companies commonly depend on independent freelance service providers. Although freelance consultants have smaller overhead than big consulting organizations and can often charge marginally less, they are occasionally overbooked, making it hard to respond quickly to urgent situations. If a freelance service provider is busy with another client, ill, on vacation, or in training, the absence of reserve personnel may require your company to wait for assistance during an emergency. As your business grows, system unavailability and trouble with vital applications are more costly. The budget you thought you were saving on an independent can be consumed fast by reduced productivity. Progent provides a dependable source of reserve service expertise to make sure your IT system is always available.

  • Build a Solid Foundation for Smooth Growth
    Organizations typically begin with an information architecture implemented on a modest budget. Without a strong framework, slap-dash repairs can get piled on top of a weak foundation. When a company grows, reliability and expandability problems can impede the success of the organization. These poorly designed environments need proper analysis, smart long-term planning, and extensive technical knowledge to upgrade to a network architecture that can provide the solid foundation to handle critical business demands and simplify downstream expansion.

  • Work with Solution Providers Rather Than Technology Resellers
    Smaller offices require advice and technical education to navigate through an ever more complicated maze of technology alternatives available for accelerating business growth and enhancing productivity. These companies do not need a network engineer who is attempting to resell a certain vendor's technology. Network support and product sales can result in a scenario where the proposed solution is built around a predetermined product rather than the genuine requirements of a client. Progent avoids these conflicts of interest by selling only services rather than products. This allows Progent to match IT expertise with the best interests of clients.

How Is Progent Different from Other Support Organizations?
Progent is a Microsoft Gold Partner consulting company and Progent's number of employees, breadth of IT knowledge, refined remote support tools, and understanding of enterprise networking allow offices to escape the limitations associated with excessive reliance on smaller service organizations, independent freelance service providers, or limited in-house IT help.

Also, Progent applies no service activation fee and asks no monthly commitment for support services provided during regular working hours. Many support organizations demand substantial minimum payments or charge for each quarter hour or longer.

  • Knowledge Transfer
    Progent practices knowledge transfer from Progent's consultants to clients.
