Benefits of Progent's Network Help for Organizations in Madison
Progent's online technical help services allow your Madison organization to enjoy the advantages of timely, expert network support without the expense of managing a full-time IT organization. Your information system will derive added strategic worth by becoming increasingly reliable, efficient, and protected. Advantages to your company include:
- Seamless virtual extension of your local IT resources
With most companies in Madison and throughout Wisconsin, local network service providers, whether represented by independent consultants or an internal IT staff, can handle the majority of network issues. On the other hand, serious problems sometimes strike when your regular resources are overstretched or unavailable, and some problems may be associated with technology that is beyond the scope of your local service technicians. In these situations, Progent's online support professionals provide a convenient, quick, and budget-friendly way to supplement your local resources and to pass on useful information to increase your ability to resolve future problems in-house.
- Less Dependence on Freelance Service Providers
For network maintenance, smaller organizations often rely on individual freelance service providers. Although independent consultants have less internal costs than big consulting companies and can often charge marginally less, they are often stretched too thin, making it difficult to respond quickly to crisis situations. If an independent service provider is busy with another client, ill, on a trip, or in training, the absence of backup help may force your business to wait for help during an emergency. As your company grows, network unavailability and trouble with vital software are more expensive. The money you thought you were conserving on a freelancer can be consumed fast by reduced productivity. Progent offers an on-call source of backup support experts to insure your network stays available.
- Build a Scalable Foundation for Smooth Growth
Businesses often start with an IT architecture created on a shoestring budget. Lacking a strong framework, band-aid fixes often get piled on top of a weak foundation. When a company grows, stability and scalability problems can impede the success of the organization. These badly built environments require careful assessment, smart strategic planning, and broad-based IT knowledge to upgrade to a network infrastructure able to deliver the stable foundation to meet vital business requirements and ease downstream expansion.
- Work with Solution Providers Instead of Product Vendors
Smaller companies require advice and technical training to negotiate an increasingly complicated maze of technology alternatives available for accelerating business success and improving productivity. Businesses do not need a network consultant who is attempting to earn a commission on a specific vendor's technology. IT consulting and product sales can result in a scenario where the proposed
solution is designed around a predetermined product instead of 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 needs of clients.
How Is Progent Different from Other Support Firms?
Progent is a Microsoft Gold Partner support firm and Progent's number of employees, breadth of IT experience, refined support tools, and familiarity with enterprise networking enable companies to avoid the pitfalls of exclusive reliance on smaller service organizations, independent freelance consultants, or limited in-house resources.
Progent adds value by offering:
