Advantages of Progent's IT Support for Organizations in Louisville
Progent's online IT consulting services allow your Louisville organization to experience the advantages of timely, enterprise-grade network support without the cost of maintaining a full-time IT staff. Your information system will derive added business worth by becoming more reliable, efficient, and protected. Benefits to your business include:

  • Convenient virtual extension of your on-site support resources
    With most businesses in Louisville and throughout Kentucky, local network support resources, whether represented by outside consultants or a full-time maintenance staff, can handle typical network problems. On the other hand, major troubles might spring up when local support personnel are overstretched or unavailable, and some problems may be associated with IT products that is unfamiliar to your local support personnel. In these cases, Progent's online support specialists provide an easy, quick, and budget-friendly solution to augment your regular help and to transfer useful knowledge to improve your capability to deal with future issues locally.

  • Reduced Dependence on Freelance Service Providers
    For network support, smaller businesses often depend on individual freelance consultants. While independent service people carry smaller overhead than larger consulting firms and can often charge marginally less, they are occasionally overbooked, making it impossible to respond quickly to crisis situations. If an independent consultant is busy with another customer, ill, on a trip, or in class, the lack of reserve personnel may force your company to wait for help during an IT crisis. As your network expands, system downtime and problems with vital applications become more expensive. The budget you thought you were conserving on an independent can be consumed fast by lost productivity. Progent provides a ready source of backup service expertise to make sure your IT system is always up and running.

  • Build a Solid Basis for Smooth Expansion
    Businesses often start with an information system created on a modest budget. Lacking a strong framework, slap-dash fixes can get thrown onto a shaky foundation. When a company grows, stability and expandability issues can impede the success of the organization. Such badly designed environments need careful analysis, smart strategic planning, and broad-based technical knowledge to upgrade to a network architecture able to deliver the stable foundation to meet critical business demands and simplify downstream growth.

  • Interact with Solution Providers Rather Than Product Sellers
    Smaller companies require advice and technical training to navigate through an ever more complex array of product alternatives available for accelerating business success and enhancing efficiency. Businesses hardly need a computer engineer who is motivated to resell a specific vendor's products. Network consulting and product sales can result in a scenario where the recommended solution is designed around a predetermined product instead of the genuine requirements of a business. Progent eliminates these dilemmas by offering just services instead of products. This allows Progent to align IT expertise with the best needs of clients.
