Benefits of Progent's IT Support for Organizations in Augusta-Richmond County
Progent's online support services allow your Augusta-Richmond County business to realize the advantages of timely, enterprise-level IT support without the cost of maintaining an in-house IT organization. Your information system will acquire added business worth by being more reliable, productive, and secure. Advantages to your company include:

  • Convenient remote expansion of your on-site support resources
    With most organizations in Augusta-Richmond County or anywhere in Georgia, local network service providers, whether represented by freelance consultants or an internal IT staff, can solve the majority of technical issues. However, major troubles might strike when local resources are overstretched or unavailable, and some trouble may stem from technology that is beyond the scope of your onsite service technicians. In these situations, Progent's online service professionals offer an easy, quick, and affordable solution to supplement your local resources and to convey valuable information to increase your capability to deal with future issues in-house.

  • Less Reliance on Freelance Consultants
    For network maintenance, smaller businesses often depend on independent freelance consultants. While freelance service people have smaller overhead than larger support companies and can afford to charge marginally less, they are occasionally overbooked, making it impossible to respond rapidly to urgent situations. If a freelance consultant is occupied with another client, ill, on a trip, or in training, the lack of fallback personnel may force your company to go without help during an emergency. As your network expands, network downtime and trouble with critical software are more expensive. The money you thought you were saving on an independent can be eaten up quickly by lost productivity. Progent provides an on-call source of backup support experts to insure your IT system remains up and running.

  • Build a Scalable Basis for Smooth Expansion
    Businesses often start with an information system created on a shoestring budget. Without a robust framework, band-aid fixes often get piled on top of an unstable foundation. When a network grows, stability and expandability issues can hinder the productivity of the organization. These badly built systems need proper analysis, intelligent long-term planning, and broad-based technical knowledge to evolve to a network infrastructure able to deliver the solid foundation to handle current business requirements and facilitate downstream growth.

  • Work with Problem Solvers Instead of Product Vendors
    Smaller organizations need advice and technical education to negotiate an increasingly complicated array of technology options capable of promoting business growth and enhancing efficiency. Businesses hardly need a computer engineer who is trying to sell a certain vendor's products. Network consulting and product selling can result in a scenario where the recommended solution is designed around a predetermined technology instead of the true needs of a business. Progent eliminates these conflicts by selling just services rather than products. This allows Progent to match IT consulting with the real needs of customers.

How Is Progent Unique from Other Support Firms?
Progent is a Microsoft Partner support firm and Progent's number of employees, depth of IT experience, fine tuned support software, and familiarity with corporate IT allow businesses to escape the limitations of excessive reliance on smaller consulting firms, independent freelance consultants, or limited in-house resources.
