Advantages of Progent's Network Help for Offices in Addison
Progent's remote IT consulting services enable your Addison company to enjoy the advantages of timely, expert network support without the expense of managing an in-house IT organization. Your network will acquire greater business value by becoming more available, efficient, and protected. Benefits to your company include:

  • Seamless virtual extension of your local IT resources
    For most offices in Addison or anywhere in Texas, nearby network service resources, whether made up of independent consultants or an in-house IT staff, can solve the majority of network problems. However, serious problems sometimes spring up when your regular resources are too busy or unavailable, and some problems may involve IT products that is beyond the scope of your onsite service people. In these instances, Progent's on-call support specialists provide an easy, fast, and budget-friendly solution to supplement your regular resources and to pass on useful knowledge to improve your ability to deal with future problems locally.

  • Reduced Reliance on Individual Service Providers
    For network support, smaller offices often depend on independent freelance service providers. Although independent consultants have smaller overhead than big support organizations and can afford to charge marginally less, they are often stretched too thin, making it impossible to respond quickly to crisis situations. If a freelance service provider is busy with another customer, sick, on a trip, or in training, the absence of reserve help may require your business to wait for help during an IT crisis. As your network grows, system unavailability and trouble with vital applications become more costly. The budget you thought you were saving on a freelancer can be consumed quickly by reduced productivity. Progent provides an on-call source of reserve support experts to make sure your network stays up and running.

  • Create a Scalable Foundation for Smooth Expansion
    Businesses typically start with an information architecture created on a modest budget. Without a strong infrastructure, slap-dash fixes can get thrown onto an unstable foundation. As a company grows, stability and expandability issues can hinder the success of the organization. Such poorly designed systems need careful assessment, smart long-term planning, and wide technical knowledge to upgrade to a system infrastructure able to offer the solid foundation to meet current business demands and ease future expansion.

  • Work with Solution Providers Rather Than Technology Resellers
    Smaller companies need advice and technical training to navigate through an ever more complicated maze of product options capable of promoting business success and enhancing efficiency. These companies hardly need a network consultant who is attempting to sell a certain vendor's technology. IT consulting and product sales can lead to a scenario where the recommended solution is built around a profitable technology rather than the genuine needs of a business. Progent eliminates these conflicts by selling only services instead of products. This enables Progent to align IT consulting with the best interests of customers.

What Makes Progent Different from Other Service Organizations?
Progent is a Microsoft Partner support firm and Progent's number of employees, depth of IT background, refined remote support tools, and familiarity with enterprise networking enable businesses to escape the pitfalls of excessive reliance on smaller service organizations, independent freelance consultants, or over-stretched in-house IT help.

The discipline of documenting and archiving service records results in more effective support and eliminates a variety of typical misfortunes such as when a service customer is virtually held hostage to a consultant who refuses to let go of the keys to the kingdom.

  • Automated Server Monitoring with MS Operations Manager
    Progent is one of the few consulting companies to offer round-the-clock remote monitoring services powered by Microsoft Operations Manager.
