Benefits of Progent's IT Support for Offices in Atlanta Georgia
Progent's online network troubleshooting services allow your Atlanta company to experience the advantages of immediate, expert IT support without the cost of maintaining an in-house IT staff. Your information system will derive added strategic worth by becoming increasingly reliable, efficient, and protected. Advantages to your business include:
- Seamless remote extension of your on-site IT resources
For most businesses in Atlanta Georgia, local computer support resources, whether consisting of freelance consultants or an in-house maintenance staff, can handle the majority of technical issues. On the other hand, IT crises sometimes occur when local resources are overstretched or unavailable, and some problems may stem from technology that is beyond the scope of your local service personnel. In these instances, Progent's online support professionals provide a convenient, fast, and affordable way to supplement your local help and to pass on useful knowledge to increase your capability to handle downstream issues locally.
- Less Reliance on Freelance Service Providers
For IT maintenance, smaller organizations often rely on independent freelance service providers. Although freelance service people have less overhead than larger consulting companies and can often charge lower rates, they are sometimes overbooked, making it difficult to respond quickly to urgent situations. If an independent consultant is busy with another customer, ill, on vacation, or in class, the lack of backup personnel may force your business to go without help during an emergency. As your network expands, system unavailability and trouble with critical software are more costly. The budget you thought you were saving on a freelancer can be consumed fast by reduced productivity. Progent offers a dependable source of backup service expertise to insure your IT system is always available.
- Create a Solid Basis for Smooth Growth
Companies often start with an information system created on a shoestring budget. Without a robust framework, slap-dash repairs often get piled on top of a shaky foundation. As a network grows, stability and expandability problems can impede the success of the organization. These badly built systems require careful assessment, intelligent long-term planning, and broad-based IT knowledge to upgrade to a network infrastructure that can deliver the solid foundation to meet vital business requirements and simplify downstream expansion.
- Work with Solution Providers Rather Than Technology Sellers
Smaller businesses require advice and technical education to navigate through an increasingly complicated maze of product options capable of accelerating business growth and improving productivity. These companies hardly need a computer engineer who is attempting to earn a commission on a specific vendor's technology. Network support and product selling can result in a scenario where the proposed
solution is built around a predetermined product instead of the genuine requirements of a client. Progent avoids these conflicts of interest by selling only services instead of products. This allows Progent to align IT consulting with the real interests of customers.
How Is Progent Unique from Other Support Organizations?
Progent is a Microsoft Certified Partner support firm and Progent's number of employees, range of technical expertise, fine tuned remote support tools, and understanding of corporate IT allow businesses to escape the limitations associated with exclusive reliance on smaller service organizations, individual freelance consultants, or limited in-house IT help.
Progent adds value by offering:
