Advantages of Progent's IT Support for Organizations in Allen
Progent's remote IT consulting services enable your Allen business to experience the benefits of timely, enterprise-level IT support without the expense of managing a full-time IT organization. Your network will acquire added business value by being increasingly reliable, efficient, and protected. Benefits to your company include:

  • Convenient remote expansion of your local support resources
    With most offices in Allen and throughout Texas, local network support resources, whether represented by independent consultants or a full-time IT staff, can deal with the majority of technical problems. On the other hand, IT crises may 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 usual support personnel. In these instances, Progent's on-call service specialists offer a convenient, quick, and affordable way to augment your regular help and to convey valuable information to improve your ability to handle downstream problems in-house.

  • Reduced Reliance on Individual Consultants
    For network maintenance, smaller organizations commonly rely on individual freelance consultants. Although freelance consultants have smaller internal costs than larger consulting firms and can afford to charge lower rates, they are sometimes overextended, making it hard to respond quickly to crisis situations. If a freelance service provider is busy with another client, ill, on a trip, or in training, the lack of reserve help may require your company to go without help during an emergency. As your business grows, system unavailability and problems with critical software are more expensive. The budget you thought you were conserving on an independent can be consumed quickly by reduced productivity. Progent provides an on-call source of reserve support expertise to insure your network stays up and running.

  • Build a Solid Basis for Seamless Growth
    Organizations typically begin with an IT system implemented on a modest budget. Lacking a strong framework, slap-dash fixes can get piled onto an unstable foundation. When a network grows, stability and scalability problems can hinder the productivity of the organization. Such badly built systems need proper assessment, intelligent strategic planning, and extensive IT expertise to upgrade to a network architecture that can offer the stable foundation to handle vital business demands and ease downstream growth.

  • Interact with Problem Solvers Rather Than Technology Resellers
    Smaller businesses need advice and technical education to negotiate an ever more complicated array of product alternatives available for accelerating business success and enhancing efficiency. These companies do not need a network consultant who is trying to sell a certain vendor's products. Network consulting and product selling can lead to a situation where the recommended solution is built around a predetermined technology rather than the true requirements of a business. Progent eliminates these conflicts by offering only services instead of products. This enables Progent to align technical consulting with the best interests of clients.

How Is Progent Unique from Other Service Organizations?
Progent is a Microsoft Certified Partner consulting company and Progent's number of employees, depth of technical knowledge, fine tuned support tools, and understanding of enterprise networking enable businesses to avoid the pitfalls associated with exclusive dependence on smaller service firms, independent freelance consultants, or limited in-house IT help.
