Advantages of Progent's IT Support for Businesses in Arlington
Progent's remote support services allow your Arlington business to experience the benefits of on-call, world-class IT support without the expense of managing an in-house IT organization. Your network will acquire greater strategic value by becoming increasingly available, efficient, and protected. Advantages to your business include:

  • Convenient remote expansion of your on-site support resources
    With most businesses in Arlington and throughout Texas, local network service providers, whether consisting of outside consultants or an in-house maintenance staff, can resolve typical technical issues. However, IT crises sometimes strike when your regular support personnel are too busy or unavailable, and some trouble may involve IT products that is unfamiliar to your local service technicians. In these situations, Progent's on-call service experts offer an easy, quick, and budget-friendly solution to augment your local resources and to convey useful information to improve your capability to handle downstream issues locally.

  • Reduced Reliance on Individual Service Providers
    For network maintenance, smaller offices often rely on independent freelance consultants. Although freelance consultants carry smaller internal costs than larger support companies and can afford to charge lower rates, they are often stretched too thin, making it impossible to respond quickly to crisis situations. If a freelance consultant is occupied with another client, sick, on vacation, or in class, the lack of fallback help may force your company to wait for help during an emergency. As your business grows, network downtime and trouble with critical software become more expensive. The budget you thought you were conserving on an independent can be eaten up quickly by lost productivity. Progent offers an on-call source of backup support expertise to make sure your network is always available.

  • Create a Scalable Basis for Smooth Growth
    Companies often begin with an IT architecture implemented on a modest budget. Without a scalable infrastructure, slap-dash fixes can get thrown onto a shaky foundation. As a company grows, stability and scalability issues can impede the success of the organization. Such poorly built systems need careful analysis, smart long-term planning, and wide IT knowledge to upgrade to a network infrastructure able to deliver the stable foundation to handle critical business requirements and facilitate future growth.

  • Work with Problem Solvers Instead of Product Sellers
    Smaller companies require guidance and technical training to negotiate an increasingly complicated array of product options available for promoting business growth and improving productivity. Businesses do not need a computer consultant who is attempting to resell a specific 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 needs of a client. Progent avoids these conflicts of interest by offering just services rather than products. This allows Progent to align technical expertise with the real needs of clients.

What Makes Progent Different from Other Service Firms?
Progent is a Microsoft Certified Partner consulting company and Progent's head count, depth of technical expertise, fine tuned remote support tools, and understanding of enterprise networking enable offices to escape the pitfalls associated with excessive dependence on smaller consulting firms, individual freelance consultants, or over-stretched internal IT help.

Progent adds value by offering:

  • Value Pricing

In addition, Progent applies no startup charge and asks no retainer for services provided during regular working hours. Many service firms impose large minimum payments or charge for each quarter hour or longer. Progent's one-minute granularity avoids large invoices for quick repairs so you won't be tempted to permit less critical problems to stay unaddressed.

  • Full Records of IT Services
    Progent has developed a sophisticated support reporting system that stores and formats complete documentation for all billed support activities. Unlike some independent consultants or local service firms who offer scant documentation or specifics of services done, each service delivered by Progent is accompanied by comprehensive documentation. Every Progent consultant has access to the service reports sent by each staff member to every customer. The practice of detailing and archiving service records allows more effective service and avoids a variety of typical misfortunes such as when a service client is effectively held hostage to a consultant who wonít let go of the keys to the kingdom.

  • Remote Network Monitoring with Microsoft System Center Operations Manager
    Progent is one of the few consulting firms to offer 24x7 remote monitoring services based on MS System Center Operations Manager. Microsoft System Center Operations Manager causes your network support to be anticipatory instead of reactive.
