Advantages of Progent's Network Help for Companies in Addison
Progent's remote IT consulting services enable your Addison business to have the benefits of timely, expert IT support without the expense of maintaining an in-house IT organization. Your information system will derive added business value by becoming increasingly available, efficient, and secure. Advantages to your business include:

  • Seamless remote extension of your local support resources
    With most organizations in Addison and throughout Texas, nearby network service resources, whether consisting of independent consultants or a full-time maintenance staff, can handle typical network issues. On the other hand, IT crises might spring up when your regular support personnel are too busy or absent, and some problems may be associated with technology that is unfamiliar to your local support people. In these cases, Progent's on-call support specialists give you a convenient, quick, and budget-friendly solution to augment your regular resources and to pass on useful information to improve your capability to resolve future issues locally.

  • Less Reliance on Freelance Service Providers
    For IT support, smaller businesses often depend on independent freelance service providers. Although freelance service people have smaller overhead than larger service organizations and can often charge lower rates, they are sometimes overbooked, making it difficult to respond quickly to urgent situations. If a freelance service provider is busy with another client, sick, on a trip, or in training, the lack of backup help may require your business to go without help during an IT crisis. As your business grows, system unavailability and trouble with vital software become more expensive. The money you thought you were conserving on a freelancer can be consumed quickly by lost productivity. Progent offers a ready source of backup service expertise to make sure your IT system stays up and running.

  • Create a Scalable Basis for Smooth Expansion
    Businesses often start with an information architecture created on a modest budget. Lacking a proper framework, slap-dash repairs often get piled onto a weak foundation. As a network grows, stability and expandability problems can hinder the productivity of the business. Such badly built environments require proper analysis, intelligent long-term planning, and extensive IT knowledge to upgrade to a network architecture able to provide the solid foundation to handle critical business demands and simplify downstream expansion.

  • Work with Solution Providers Rather Than Product Resellers
    Smaller offices need advice and technical education to negotiate an increasingly complicated array of technology alternatives capable of accelerating business growth and improving efficiency. Businesses do not need a computer engineer who is trying to earn a commission on a specific vendor's technology. IT consulting and product selling can lead to a scenario where the proposed solution is designed around a predetermined technology rather than the genuine requirements of a business. Progent avoids these conflicts of interest by offering only services instead of products. This enables Progent to align IT consulting with the real interests of clients.

What Makes Progent Unique from Other Support Organizations?
Progent is a Microsoft Certified Partner support firm and Progent's number of employees, depth of technical experience, fine tuned remote support software, and understanding of corporate IT allow businesses to escape the pitfalls of excessive dependence on smaller consulting organizations, independent freelance service providers, or limited in-house resources.

Progent adds value by providing:

  • Value Pricing
    Progent's pricing model is to bill for remote service and in-person visits by the minute. Consequently, you pay just for received support.

Also, Progent applies no initialization charge and asks no retainer for support services delivered during regular business hours. Many service firms impose large minimum fees or charge for every quarter hour or longer. Progent's fine granularity avoids large bills for fast solutions so you will not be tempted to allow minor problems to stay unaddressed.

  • Full Records of Delivered Services
    Progent has developed a comprehensive service reporting system that stores and organizes complete documentation for all billed services. Unlike some freelance consultants or local service organizations who offer minimal documentation or specifics of tasks done, every service provided by Progent is tracked by comprehensive documentation. Every Progent consultant has use of the support reports transmitted by every consultant to every client. The discipline of documenting and organizing support records results in more efficient support and avoids a slew of common misfortunes such as when a support customer is effectively held captive to a consultant who wonít release vital service information.

  • 24x7 Server Monitoring with MS Operations Manager
    Progent is one of the only support companies to offer 24x7 remote monitoring services powered by Microsoft Operations Manager.
