Benefits of Progent's Network Help for Companies in Allen
Progent's online IT consulting services allow your Allen company to realize the advantages of on-call, expert network support without the expense of managing an in-house IT organization. Your information system will acquire added business worth by being increasingly reliable, productive, and secure. Benefits to your business include:

  • Seamless virtual expansion of your local support resources
    With most businesses in Allen or anywhere in Texas, local computer service resources, whether represented by freelance consultants or an internal IT staff, can take care of the majority of technical issues. However, major troubles sometimes occur when local resources are too busy or unavailable, and some trouble may stem from IT products that is unfamiliar to your local service personnel. In these instances, Progent's online service professionals give you a convenient, fast, and budget-friendly solution to augment your local resources and to pass on useful information to improve your capability to handle future issues locally.

  • Less Dependence on Freelance Service Providers
    For network maintenance, smaller offices often depend on independent freelance service providers. Although independent consultants carry less internal costs than larger support firms and can afford to charge lower rates, they are sometimes overbooked, making it difficult to respond rapidly to urgent situations. If an independent consultant is occupied with another client, ill, on a trip, or in class, the lack of backup help may force your company to go without assistance during an emergency. As your business grows, system downtime and trouble with vital software become more expensive. The budget you thought you were conserving on an independent can be consumed fast by reduced productivity. Progent offers a ready source of reserve service expertise to insure your network is always available.

  • Build a Solid Foundation for Seamless Growth
    Businesses often begin with an IT system implemented on a modest budget. Without a scalable framework, slap-dash repairs can get thrown on top of an unstable foundation. As a company grows, stability and scalability issues can impede the productivity of the organization. These poorly built systems require proper assessment, smart strategic planning, and wide technical expertise to evolve to a system architecture able to deliver the stable foundation to meet current business demands and simplify future expansion.

  • Work with Solution Providers Instead of Product Sellers
    Smaller organizations need advice and technical education to navigate through an ever more complex maze of technology alternatives capable of accelerating business success and improving productivity. These companies do not need a network consultant who is attempting to earn a commission on a certain vendor's products. Network consulting and product selling can lead to a scenario where the recommended solution is built around a predetermined product rather than the true needs of a client. Progent eliminates these conflicts of interest by selling just services instead of products. This allows Progent to align IT consulting with the best interests of clients.

What Makes Progent Unique from Other Service Firms?
Progent is a Microsoft Partner consulting company and Progent's staff size, depth of technical expertise, refined support software, and familiarity with enterprise networking enable companies to escape the pitfalls associated with exclusive dependence on smaller service firms, independent freelance consultants, or limited in-house IT help.
