Advantages of Progent's IT Support for Businesses in Augusta-Richmond County
Progent's remote IT consulting services enable your Augusta-Richmond County organization to experience the benefits of immediate, expert IT support without the cost of managing a full-time IT staff. Your network will acquire greater business value by being increasingly reliable, efficient, and secure. Benefits to your business include:

  • Convenient remote extension of your local IT resources
    With most organizations in Augusta-Richmond County or anywhere in Georgia, nearby computer support resources, whether made up of independent consultants or an in-house maintenance staff, can handle the majority of network issues. On the other hand, IT crises might strike when local support personnel are overstretched or unavailable, and some problems may involve IT products that is unfamiliar to your local service people. In these instances, Progent's on-call service specialists give you an easy, fast, and budget-friendly solution to augment your local resources and to convey useful information to improve your capability to resolve downstream problems locally.

  • Reduced Dependence on Freelance Service Providers
    For IT maintenance, smaller offices commonly depend on individual freelance consultants. While independent service people carry less overhead than big service firms and can afford to charge lower rates, they are often overextended, making it hard to respond rapidly to urgent situations. If an independent consultant is occupied with another client, ill, on a trip, or in training, the absence of fallback help may force your company to wait for help during an emergency. As your company expands, network unavailability and problems with vital software become more costly. The budget you thought you were conserving on an independent can be consumed fast by reduced productivity. Progent provides a dependable source of backup support expertise to make sure your network is always up and running.

  • Create a Solid Foundation for Seamless Expansion
    Companies typically begin with an information architecture created on a modest budget. Lacking a proper infrastructure, band-aid fixes can get piled onto an unstable foundation. As a network grows, reliability and scalability issues can hinder the success of the organization. These poorly built systems require proper assessment, smart strategic planning, and extensive IT knowledge to upgrade to a system infrastructure that can offer the stable foundation to meet vital business requirements and facilitate future expansion.

  • Work with Solution Providers Instead of Product Vendors
    Smaller offices need advice and technical education to negotiate an ever more complicated maze of technology options capable of accelerating business success and improving productivity. Businesses hardly need a network consultant who is attempting to sell a certain vendor's products. IT support and product sales can lead to a scenario where the recommended solution is designed around a predetermined product instead of the true requirements of a client. Progent eliminates these conflicts of interest by offering just services rather than products. This enables Progent to match technical consulting with the real needs of clients.

What Makes Progent Different from Other Support Organizations?
Progent is a Microsoft Partner support firm and Progent's number of employees, range of technical background, fine tuned support tools, and understanding of enterprise networking allow businesses to escape the pitfalls associated with excessive dependence on smaller consulting firms, independent freelance service providers, or limited internal resources.
