Benefits of Progent's IT Support for Companies in Appleton Wisconsin
Progent's remote IT consulting services allow your Appleton company to experience the benefits of timely, world-class IT support without the expense of maintaining an in-house IT staff. Your information system will acquire greater business value by being increasingly reliable, productive, and protected. Benefits to your company include:
- Convenient remote expansion of your on-site IT resources
With most offices in Appleton Wisconsin, nearby computer support providers, whether made up of independent consultants or a full-time maintenance staff, can resolve typical network issues. On the other hand, IT crises might occur when local support personnel are too busy or unavailable, and some problems may involve technology that is unfamiliar to your local service people. In these cases, Progent's online service specialists provide an easy, quick, and affordable way to supplement your regular help and to pass on useful information to increase your ability to resolve downstream issues locally.
- Reduced Dependence on Freelance Service Providers
For IT maintenance, smaller businesses often rely on individual freelance service providers. Although independent consultants have less overhead than larger support companies and can often charge lower rates, they are occasionally stretched too thin, making it hard to respond rapidly to urgent situations. If an independent service provider is occupied with another customer, sick, on a trip, or in class, the absence of reserve personnel may force your company to go without assistance during an emergency. As your company grows, system unavailability and trouble with vital applications become more expensive. The money you thought you were conserving on a freelancer can be consumed fast by reduced productivity. Progent offers a ready source of backup service expertise to make sure your network remains available.
- Create a Solid Basis for Smooth Growth
Businesses often start with an IT architecture created on a modest budget. Without a scalable framework, slap-dash fixes often get thrown onto a weak foundation. When a network grows, stability and expandability problems can impede the success of the organization. Such badly built systems require proper assessment, smart long-term planning, and wide technical knowledge to upgrade to a network infrastructure able to deliver the stable foundation to meet current business demands and ease downstream expansion.
- Work with Problem Solvers Rather Than Product Sellers
Smaller organizations require guidance and technical education to negotiate an increasingly complicated maze of product options capable of promoting business growth and improving efficiency. Businesses hardly need a computer engineer who is attempting to earn a commission on a specific vendor's technology. IT support and product selling can result in a situation where the recommended
solution is designed around a predetermined technology instead of the genuine requirements of a client. Progent eliminates these conflicts of interest by selling only services rather than products. This enables Progent to align technical expertise with the best needs of clients.
What Makes Progent Different from Other Support Firms?
Progent is a Microsoft Partner support company and Progent's head count, depth of IT experience, fine tuned support software, and familiarity with corporate IT enable businesses to avoid the pitfalls of exclusive reliance on smaller service organizations, individual freelance consultants, or over-stretched in-house resources.
