Advantages of Progent's IT Support for Organizations in Alpharetta
Progent's remote technical help services allow your Alpharetta company to have the advantages of timely, enterprise-grade network support without the expense of maintaining an in-house IT organization. Your network will acquire greater strategic worth by becoming more reliable, efficient, and protected. Advantages to your business include:

  • Seamless virtual expansion of your local IT resources
    For most organizations in Alpharetta and throughout Georgia, nearby network service providers, whether represented by independent consultants or an in-house maintenance staff, can resolve the majority of network problems. However, major troubles may occur when your regular resources are overstretched or unavailable, and some trouble may be associated with IT products that is beyond the scope of your usual service people. In these instances, Progent's on-call support specialists provide an easy, fast, and affordable solution to augment your local resources and to pass on valuable information to improve your capability to resolve future issues locally.

  • Reduced Reliance on Individual Consultants
    For network support, smaller organizations commonly rely on independent freelance consultants. Although freelance consultants carry smaller overhead than larger service firms and can afford to charge marginally less, they are often stretched too thin, making it impossible to respond rapidly to crisis situations. If an independent service provider is occupied with another client, sick, on a trip, or in class, the absence of backup personnel may require your company to wait for help during an emergency. As your network expands, network unavailability and trouble with critical applications become more expensive. The budget you thought you were conserving on an independent can be consumed fast by lost productivity. Progent offers an on-call source of backup service experts to make sure your IT system stays available.

  • Build a Solid Foundation for Seamless Growth
    Businesses often begin with an information architecture created on a shoestring budget. Lacking a robust infrastructure, slap-dash repairs often get thrown onto a weak foundation. As a company grows, reliability and expandability problems can impede the success of the organization. Such badly designed systems require careful assessment, smart long-term planning, and broad-based technical knowledge to evolve to a network architecture that can offer the solid foundation to handle current business demands and facilitate downstream growth.

  • Interact with Problem Solvers Rather Than Product Resellers
    Smaller companies require guidance and technical education to navigate through an increasingly complicated maze of product options capable of promoting business success and improving efficiency. Businesses do not need a computer consultant who is trying to earn a commission on a specific vendor's technology. Network consulting and product selling can lead to a situation where the recommended solution is built around a profitable product instead of the genuine needs of a business. Progent eliminates these dilemmas by offering only services rather than products. This enables Progent to match IT expertise with the real needs of clients.

What Makes Progent Unique from Other Support Firms?
Progent is a Microsoft Partner support company and Progent's staff size, breadth of technical experience, fine tuned remote support software, and understanding of enterprise networking allow companies to escape the limitations associated with exclusive dependence on smaller consulting firms, independent freelance service providers, or over-stretched in-house resources.
