Advantages of Progent's Network Help for Offices in Arlington
Progent's online network troubleshooting services allow your Arlington business to enjoy the advantages of timely, enterprise-level IT support without the cost of managing a full-time IT organization. Your network will acquire added strategic value by becoming increasingly reliable, productive, and secure. Advantages to your company include:

  • Seamless virtual expansion of your on-site support resources
    With most companies in Arlington and throughout Texas, nearby network support resources, whether consisting of independent consultants or a full-time IT staff, can deal with typical network issues. On the other hand, serious problems sometimes strike when your regular resources are too busy or unavailable, and some problems may stem from IT products that is beyond the scope of your onsite support technicians. In these instances, Progent's online service professionals give you a convenient, quick, and affordable way to augment your local help and to convey valuable knowledge to improve your ability to deal with downstream problems in-house.

  • Less Reliance on Individual Consultants
    For network maintenance, smaller organizations commonly depend on independent freelance service providers. Although freelance consultants have smaller overhead than big consulting companies and can afford to charge lower rates, they are occasionally overbooked, making it difficult to respond rapidly to crisis situations. If an independent service provider is busy with another customer, sick, on vacation, or in training, the lack of reserve help may force your business to go without assistance during an emergency. As your business expands, system downtime and trouble with critical applications become more expensive. The budget you thought you were saving on a freelancer can be eaten up quickly by lost productivity. Progent provides an on-call source of reserve support experts to insure your IT system is always available.

  • Create a Solid Foundation for Seamless Growth
    Businesses typically begin with an IT architecture implemented on a shoestring budget. Without a strong framework, slap-dash fixes often get thrown onto an unstable foundation. When a network grows, stability and expandability issues can impede the productivity of the business. These poorly built environments need proper assessment, intelligent strategic planning, and broad-based technical expertise to upgrade to a network architecture able to provide the stable foundation to meet current business demands and ease downstream growth.

  • Work with Problem Solvers Instead of Product Resellers
    Smaller offices need guidance and technical education to negotiate an increasingly complex array of product options capable of promoting business growth and improving productivity. Businesses hardly need a computer consultant who is attempting to resell a specific vendor's technology. IT support and product selling can result in a situation where the proposed solution is designed around a predetermined technology instead of the genuine requirements of a client. Progent eliminates these dilemmas by selling only services rather than products. This enables Progent to match technical consulting with the best interests of clients.

How Is Progent Different from Other Support Firms?
Progent is a Microsoft Certified Partner consulting firm and Progent's head count, depth of IT expertise, refined support software, and understanding of enterprise networking allow businesses to escape the limitations associated with excessive dependence on smaller service organizations, independent freelance consultants, or over-stretched in-house resources.

The discipline of detailing and archiving service records results in more efficient support and avoids a slew of common misfortunes such as when a support customer is effectively held captive to a consultant who wonít let go of the keys to the kingdom.
