Advantages of Progent's IT Support for Offices in Jacksonville
Progent's remote technical help services allow your Jacksonville company to realize the benefits of on-call, enterprise-level IT support without the expense of managing an in-house IT organization. Your information system will acquire greater strategic value by becoming increasingly available, productive, and secure. Advantages to your company include:
- Convenient virtual extension of your on-site support resources
With most companies in Jacksonville and throughout Florida, nearby network service providers, whether consisting of freelance consultants or an internal IT staff, can handle typical technical issues. On the other hand, IT crises may strike when local support personnel are overstretched or unavailable, and some problems may be associated with IT products that is beyond the scope of your onsite support personnel. In these instances, Progent's on-call service professionals offer a convenient, quick, and budget-friendly solution to augment your local resources and to convey useful knowledge to improve your ability to handle future problems locally.
- Less Dependence on Freelance Service Providers
For network support, smaller companies often rely on individual freelance service providers. While freelance consultants carry less internal costs than big support firms and can afford to charge lower rates, they are often overextended, making it impossible to respond rapidly to urgent situations. If a freelance service provider is occupied with another client, sick, on vacation, or in training, the lack of fallback personnel may require your business to wait for help during an IT crisis. As your business expands, network downtime and problems with vital applications become more costly. The money you thought you were conserving on a freelancer can be consumed quickly by reduced productivity. Progent provides an on-call source of reserve service expertise to make sure your network stays available.
- Create a Scalable Basis for Smooth Growth
Businesses often start with an information system implemented on a modest budget. Lacking a strong infrastructure, band-aid repairs often get piled onto a shaky foundation. As a network grows, stability and scalability problems can hinder the productivity of the business. These poorly designed systems need careful assessment, smart long-term planning, and extensive IT expertise to evolve to a system infrastructure that can offer the stable foundation to meet current business demands and simplify future expansion.
- Interact with Solution Providers Rather Than Technology Resellers
Smaller businesses require advice and technical training to negotiate an ever more complex maze of product options available for promoting business success and improving efficiency. They do not need a computer engineer who is attempting to sell a specific vendor's technology. IT consulting and product sales can result in a scenario where the recommended
solution is designed around a predetermined product rather than the true requirements of a client. Progent eliminates these conflicts by selling only services instead of products. This allows Progent to match IT expertise with the real needs of clients.

Progent is a Microsoft Gold Partner support company and Progent's head count, breadth of IT background, refined remote support software, and understanding of enterprise networking allow businesses to escape the limitations associated with exclusive reliance on smaller consulting firms, individual freelance service providers, or limited in-house IT help.
