Benefits of Progent's Network Help for Offices in Allen
Progent's online network troubleshooting services enable your Allen company to realize the benefits of immediate, enterprise-level network support without the cost of maintaining an in-house IT organization. Your network will acquire added business value by becoming more reliable, productive, and protected. Benefits to your business include:

  • Convenient virtual expansion of your on-site support resources
    For most businesses in Allen or anywhere in Texas, local network service resources, whether made up of outside consultants or a full-time maintenance staff, can deal with the majority of network problems. On the other hand, IT crises may strike when local resources are overstretched or absent, and some problems may be associated with technology that is beyond the scope of your local support technicians. In these cases, Progent's on-call support professionals offer an easy, quick, and affordable solution to augment your regular help and to pass on valuable knowledge to improve your ability to deal with downstream issues locally.

  • Less Reliance on Freelance Consultants
    For network support, smaller offices often depend on independent freelance service providers. Although independent service people have less internal costs than larger support organizations and can afford to charge lower rates, they are sometimes overbooked, making it hard to respond quickly to urgent situations. If an independent consultant is occupied with another client, sick, on vacation, or in training, the absence of reserve personnel may require your company to wait for assistance during an emergency. As your company grows, system unavailability and trouble with critical software become more expensive. The budget you thought you were saving on a freelancer can be consumed fast by lost productivity. Progent provides a reliable source of backup support experts to make sure your network is always up and running.

  • Build a Solid Basis for Smooth Growth
    Businesses often start with an information architecture created on a modest budget. Lacking a proper infrastructure, slap-dash fixes can get thrown onto an unstable foundation. When a network grows, reliability and expandability issues can impede the success of the organization. These badly designed systems require proper assessment, smart strategic planning, and wide IT knowledge to evolve to a network infrastructure able to provide the solid foundation to meet vital business demands and simplify future growth.

  • Work with Solution Providers Instead of Technology Sellers
    Smaller offices require advice and technical education to negotiate an ever more complex array of product options capable of accelerating business success and improving efficiency. Businesses hardly need a network consultant who is trying to resell a certain vendor's products. Network consulting and product selling can result in a situation where the proposed solution is built around a profitable technology rather than the genuine requirements of a client. Progent avoids these dilemmas by selling only services rather than products. This enables Progent to match IT consulting with the real interests of customers.

What Makes Progent Unique from Other Service Organizations?
Progent is a Microsoft Partner consulting firm and Progent's staff size, breadth of IT expertise, refined support software, and understanding of corporate IT allow offices to avoid the pitfalls of exclusive reliance on smaller consulting firms, independent freelance service providers, or over-stretched internal resources.
