Benefits of Progent's Network Help for Companies in Atlanta Georgia
Progent's remote technical help services enable your Atlanta organization to experience the benefits of timely, world-class IT support without the expense of managing a full-time IT organization. Your network will acquire greater strategic value by being increasingly reliable, productive, and secure. Advantages to your business include:
- Convenient remote extension of your local support resources
For most offices in Atlanta Georgia, local network service resources, whether represented by freelance consultants or an internal IT staff, can solve typical network problems. However, serious problems sometimes strike when your regular resources are too busy or unavailable, and some trouble may be associated with IT products that is beyond the scope of your local service people. In these instances, Progent's online service professionals provide a convenient, fast, and economical way to augment your local resources and to convey useful knowledge to improve your ability to handle downstream issues locally.
- Reduced Reliance on Individual Service Providers
For network maintenance, smaller companies often depend on independent freelance service providers. Although freelance service people have smaller internal costs than big service companies and can afford to charge marginally less, they are occasionally overextended, making it difficult to respond rapidly to urgent situations. If a freelance consultant is busy with another client, sick, on a trip, or in class, the lack of backup personnel may force your company to wait for assistance during an IT crisis. As your network grows, system downtime and trouble with vital applications are more expensive. The money you thought you were saving on an independent can be consumed quickly by lost productivity. Progent offers a ready source of reserve service expertise to make sure your network stays up and running.
- Build a Solid Foundation for Smooth Expansion
Businesses typically start with an information system implemented on a shoestring budget. Lacking a scalable framework, band-aid fixes can get thrown on top of a weak foundation. When a network grows, reliability and expandability problems can impede the productivity of the organization. Such poorly built systems need proper assessment, smart strategic planning, and broad-based IT expertise to upgrade to a system architecture that can deliver the stable foundation to handle vital business requirements and simplify downstream expansion.
- Work with Solution Providers Instead of Product Vendors
Smaller businesses need guidance and technical education to negotiate an ever more complex array of product options capable of promoting business growth and improving productivity. These companies hardly need a network consultant who is motivated to earn a commission on a certain vendor's technology. Network support and product sales can lead to a situation where the proposed
solution is designed around a predetermined product rather than the genuine requirements of a business. Progent avoids these conflicts by selling only services rather than products. This allows Progent to align IT consulting with the best needs of customers.
What Makes Progent Unique from Other Support Organizations?
Progent is a Microsoft Certified Partner consulting company and Progent's head count, range of technical expertise, fine tuned remote support tools, and understanding of enterprise networking allow offices to escape the pitfalls of excessive reliance on smaller consulting organizations, independent freelance service providers, or over-stretched internal resources.
Progent adds value by offering:
