Advantages of Progent's IT Support for Offices in Alpharetta
Progent's remote technical help services enable your Alpharetta company to have the advantages of timely, enterprise-level IT support without the cost of managing a full-time IT organization. Your network will acquire greater strategic value by becoming increasingly reliable, productive, and protected. Benefits to your business include:

  • Seamless remote expansion of your local support resources
    For most businesses in Alpharetta and throughout Georgia, nearby computer support providers, whether made up of freelance consultants or an in-house IT staff, can take care of typical network issues. However, serious problems may spring up when local resources are too busy or unavailable, and some problems may involve IT products that is unfamiliar to your onsite service people. In these cases, Progent's on-call support professionals offer a convenient, fast, and affordable way to augment your regular resources and to transfer useful information to increase your capability to resolve downstream issues locally.

  • Reduced Dependence on Individual Service Providers
    For network support, smaller offices commonly depend on independent freelance consultants. While freelance consultants carry smaller internal costs than big service firms and can afford to charge lower rates, they are often overbooked, making it difficult to respond quickly to crisis situations. If an independent service provider is busy with another customer, ill, on vacation, or in training, the lack of fallback help may force your company to wait for assistance during an IT crisis. As your network grows, system downtime and problems with vital software become more costly. The money you thought you were conserving on a freelancer can be eaten up fast by reduced productivity. Progent offers a ready source of backup support expertise to insure your IT system remains available.

  • Build a Scalable Foundation for Seamless Growth
    Organizations often start with an information system implemented on a modest budget. Lacking a scalable framework, band-aid fixes can get piled onto a weak foundation. When a company grows, reliability and scalability issues can hinder the success of the business. These poorly designed environments require careful analysis, smart strategic planning, and extensive IT knowledge to upgrade to a system architecture that can deliver the solid foundation to meet current business requirements and simplify future expansion.

  • Interact with Problem Solvers Instead of Product Sellers
    Smaller companies require advice and technical education to negotiate an ever more complex array of product options capable of promoting business success and enhancing productivity. Businesses do not need a computer engineer who is trying to earn a commission on a certain vendor's technology. IT support and product sales can result in a scenario where the proposed solution is designed around a predetermined technology rather than the true needs of a business. Progent avoids these conflicts by selling just services rather than products. This enables Progent to match IT expertise with the best interests of customers.

What Makes Progent Unique from Other Support Organizations?
Progent is a Microsoft Certified Partner support company and Progent's staff size, range of IT experience, fine tuned remote support software, and understanding of corporate IT enable businesses to escape the limitations associated with exclusive dependence on smaller service organizations, independent freelance consultants, or over-stretched internal IT help.
