Benefits of Progent's Network Help for Businesses in Augusta-Richmond County

Your information system will derive added business value by being increasingly reliable, productive, and protected. Advantages to your company include:

  • Seamless remote extension of your on-site support resources
    With most businesses in Augusta-Richmond County or anywhere in Georgia, nearby computer support resources, whether made up of outside consultants or an internal maintenance staff, can handle the majority of network issues. On the other hand, IT crises might occur when your regular support personnel are too busy or absent, and some problems may be associated with IT products that is beyond the scope of your usual service technicians. In these cases, Progent's on-call service professionals offer a convenient, fast, and economical solution to augment your regular resources and to transfer useful knowledge to improve your capability to handle future problems locally.

  • Reduced Dependence on Individual Consultants
    For network maintenance, smaller companies commonly depend on independent freelance service providers. While independent service people have smaller overhead than big consulting firms and can often charge marginally less, they are often overextended, making it difficult to respond quickly to crisis situations. If an independent consultant is busy with another customer, sick, on vacation, or in class, the absence of fallback personnel may require your business to go without assistance during an emergency. As your business expands, network unavailability and problems with critical applications become more costly. The budget you thought you were conserving on a freelancer can be consumed quickly by lost productivity. Progent offers a reliable source of reserve support expertise to insure your network stays up and running.

  • Create a Scalable Basis for Smooth Growth
    Companies often begin with an information system implemented on a shoestring budget. Lacking a robust infrastructure, band-aid fixes can get thrown onto a weak foundation. When a company grows, stability and scalability problems can hinder the success of the business. Such badly built environments need proper analysis, smart long-term planning, and extensive IT expertise to upgrade to a network architecture able to offer the solid foundation to meet vital business demands and ease future expansion.

  • Interact with Solution Providers Instead of Product Resellers
    Smaller businesses need advice and technical training to navigate through an ever more complicated array of product alternatives capable of accelerating business growth and improving efficiency. These companies do not need a network consultant who is trying to earn a commission on a specific vendor's products. IT support and product sales can result in a scenario where the recommended solution is designed around a predetermined product instead of the true requirements of a business. Progent avoids these dilemmas by selling only services rather than products. This enables Progent to align technical expertise with the real needs of clients.

How Is Progent Different from Other Service Firms?
Progent is a Microsoft Partner support firm and Progent's head count, depth of IT knowledge, fine tuned remote support software, and familiarity with enterprise networking enable offices to avoid the pitfalls associated with excessive dependence on smaller service organizations, independent freelance consultants, or over-stretched in-house IT help.
