Advantages of Progent's IT Support for Companies in Appleton
Progent's online technical help services allow your Appleton company to experience the benefits of immediate, enterprise-class IT support without the cost of managing a full-time IT staff. Your information system will acquire greater business value by becoming more available, efficient, and protected. Advantages to your business include:

  • Seamless remote extension of your local IT resources
    With most companies in Appleton or anywhere in Wisconsin, local network support resources, whether consisting of outside consultants or a full-time IT staff, can handle typical technical problems. However, major troubles can occur when your regular support personnel are overstretched or absent, and some trouble may stem from technology that is unfamiliar to your usual support people. In these cases, Progent's on-call support experts provide a convenient, fast, and economical way to supplement your regular help and to convey valuable knowledge to improve your ability to handle future issues in-house.

  • Reduced Dependence on Freelance Consultants
    For IT maintenance, smaller offices commonly depend on independent freelance consultants. While freelance service people have smaller internal costs than larger service firms and can often charge lower rates, they are occasionally stretched too thin, making it impossible to respond rapidly to crisis situations. If an independent service provider is occupied with another customer, sick, on vacation, or in class, the absence of backup personnel may require your company to wait for help during an IT crisis. As your company expands, system unavailability and problems with vital software become more expensive. The budget you thought you were saving on a freelancer can be consumed quickly by lost productivity. Progent provides an on-call source of backup service expertise to make sure your network is always available.

  • Create a Scalable Basis for Smooth Expansion
    Organizations typically start with an IT system implemented on a shoestring budget. Lacking a scalable framework, band-aid repairs can get piled on top of a weak foundation. As a network grows, reliability and expandability problems can hinder the success of the business. These poorly designed environments require careful assessment, smart long-term planning, and wide technical knowledge to evolve to a network architecture that can provide the stable foundation to meet critical business requirements and facilitate future growth.

  • Work with Solution Providers Instead of Technology Sellers
    Smaller organizations need advice and technical education to navigate through an increasingly complex maze of technology alternatives available for accelerating business growth and improving efficiency. They hardly need a network engineer who is motivated to resell a certain vendor's products. 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 business. Progent eliminates these dilemmas by offering just services rather than products. This enables Progent to align technical consulting with the best interests of clients.

How Is Progent Unique from Other Service Firms?
Progent is a Microsoft Certified Partner consulting firm and Progent's staff size, breadth of technical expertise, refined support tools, and understanding of corporate IT enable companies to avoid the pitfalls associated with exclusive dependence on smaller service organizations, individual freelance consultants, or limited in-house resources.
