Benefits of Progent's Network Help for Companies in Atlanta
Progent's remote IT consulting services enable your Atlanta organization to realize the benefits of timely, world-class IT support without the cost of maintaining a full-time IT staff. Your network will acquire greater strategic worth by being increasingly reliable, productive, and secure. Advantages to your business include:

  • Convenient remote extension of your on-site support resources
    For most offices in Atlanta or anywhere in Georgia, local network support resources, whether made up of outside consultants or an in-house maintenance staff, can solve typical technical problems. However, IT crises can strike when local support personnel are overstretched or unavailable, and some trouble may stem from technology that is beyond the scope of your usual support personnel. In these situations, Progent's on-call service specialists provide an easy, quick, and affordable way to augment your local help and to pass on useful information to increase your capability to deal with downstream issues locally.

  • Less Dependence on Freelance Service Providers
    For IT support, smaller companies commonly depend on independent freelance consultants. While independent consultants carry smaller overhead than big support firms and can afford to charge marginally less, they are occasionally overextended, making it hard to respond quickly to crisis situations. If a freelance service provider is busy with another client, ill, on a trip, or in class, the lack of fallback personnel may require your business to go without assistance during an emergency. As your business expands, network unavailability and trouble with vital applications are more costly. The budget you thought you were conserving on a freelancer can be eaten up quickly by reduced productivity. Progent offers an on-call source of backup service expertise to insure your network is always available.

  • Create a Solid Foundation for Seamless Expansion
    Companies often start with an IT system created on a shoestring budget. Without a robust framework, slap-dash fixes can get thrown onto a weak foundation. As a company grows, reliability and scalability problems can hinder the success of the organization. These badly designed systems need careful assessment, smart strategic planning, and wide IT expertise to evolve to a network infrastructure able to provide the stable foundation to meet critical business demands and simplify future expansion.

  • Interact with Solution Providers Rather Than Technology Sellers
    Smaller businesses need advice and technical education to navigate through an ever more complex maze of product alternatives available for promoting business growth and enhancing efficiency. They hardly need a computer consultant who is motivated to resell a certain vendor's products. Network support and product selling can lead to a situation where the recommended solution is designed around a predetermined product rather than the true needs of a business. Progent eliminates these conflicts of interest by selling only services rather than products. This enables Progent to match IT consulting with the best interests of clients.

How Is Progent Different from Other Service Organizations?
Progent is a Microsoft Partner support company and Progent's staff size, depth of IT background, fine tuned support tools, and understanding of enterprise networking allow offices to avoid the pitfalls of excessive reliance on smaller consulting organizations, independent freelance service providers, or over-stretched in-house resources.

Progent stands out by offering:

Progent's one-minute granularity does away with large bills for fast fixes so you won't be tempted to allow simple problems to fester.

  • Complete Records of IT Services
    Progent has developed a sophisticated support reporting system that stores and organizes detailed documentation for all delivered support activities. Unlike many freelance consultants or small service firms who provide scant documentation or details of tasks performed, every service provided by Progent is accompanied by comprehensive documentation. Each Progent consultant has use of the service reports sent by each staff member to each customer. The discipline of detailing and archiving service records allows more effective support and avoids a slew of typical misfortunes such as when a support client is virtually held hostage to a consultant who refuses to let go of the keys to the kingdom.

  • 24x7 Network Monitoring with MS System Center Operations Manager
