Advantages of Progent's IT Support for Organizations in Addison
Progent's remote IT consulting services allow your Addison business to experience the benefits of timely, world-class network support without the cost of managing an in-house IT staff. Your information system will acquire added strategic worth by becoming increasingly reliable, productive, and secure. Benefits to your business include:

  • Seamless remote extension of your on-site IT resources
    For most organizations in Addison and throughout Texas, local computer support resources, whether consisting of outside consultants or a full-time maintenance staff, can deal with the majority of technical issues. On the other hand, IT crises might strike when your regular support personnel are too busy or unavailable, and some problems may be associated with IT products that is beyond the scope of your onsite support technicians. In these cases, Progent's on-call support experts offer an easy, fast, and affordable way to supplement your regular resources and to pass on valuable knowledge to increase your ability to handle downstream issues in-house.

  • Reduced Reliance on Freelance Service Providers
    For network support, smaller organizations commonly rely on independent freelance consultants. Although freelance consultants have smaller overhead than larger consulting firms and can often charge lower rates, they are sometimes overbooked, making it difficult to respond quickly to urgent situations. If a freelance consultant is busy with another client, sick, on vacation, or in training, the lack of backup help may force your company to go without assistance during an emergency. As your network grows, network downtime and trouble with critical software are more costly. The money you thought you were saving on a freelancer can be consumed fast by reduced productivity. Progent provides a ready source of reserve service expertise to insure your IT system remains up and running.

  • Create a Solid Basis for Seamless Expansion
    Businesses typically start with an IT architecture implemented on a modest budget. Lacking a proper infrastructure, band-aid fixes can get thrown on top of a shaky foundation. When a network grows, stability and expandability issues can hinder the productivity of the organization. Such poorly built environments require careful analysis, intelligent strategic planning, and wide IT knowledge to upgrade to a network infrastructure able to provide the stable foundation to meet current business requirements and simplify downstream expansion.

  • Work with Problem Solvers Rather Than Product Sellers
    Smaller businesses need guidance and technical education to negotiate an ever more complicated array of technology alternatives capable of promoting business success and enhancing efficiency. They do not need a computer consultant who is trying to sell a specific vendor's products. Network support and product selling can result in a situation where the recommended solution is built around a predetermined technology instead of the genuine requirements of a business. Progent avoids these conflicts by offering only services rather than products. This allows Progent to match technical expertise with the real needs of clients.

What Makes Progent Unique from Other Support Organizations?
Progent is a Microsoft Partner support company and Progent's staff size, range of technical expertise, fine tuned support tools, and familiarity with enterprise networking enable companies to escape the pitfalls associated with excessive reliance on smaller service firms, individual freelance service providers, or over-stretched in-house IT help.
