Advantages of Progent's Network Help for Businesses in Augusta-Richmond County
Progent's online support services allow your Augusta-Richmond County business to have the advantages of immediate, world-class network support without the cost of managing an in-house IT organization. Your network will derive added strategic worth by becoming more available, productive, and protected. Advantages to your company include:

  • Convenient remote expansion of your local IT resources
    With most businesses in Augusta-Richmond County and throughout Georgia, nearby network support resources, whether consisting of independent consultants or a full-time IT staff, can take care of the majority of network issues. However, serious problems sometimes occur when local resources are overstretched or absent, and some problems may stem from IT products that is beyond the scope of your local support people. In these situations, Progent's on-call support professionals offer an easy, fast, and affordable way to supplement your regular help and to pass on valuable knowledge to improve your ability to resolve downstream issues locally.

  • Less Dependence on Individual Consultants
    For network maintenance, smaller businesses often rely on independent freelance consultants. While freelance consultants have smaller internal costs than big support organizations and can often charge lower rates, they are sometimes overextended, making it hard to respond rapidly to urgent situations. If an independent consultant is busy with another customer, sick, on a trip, or in class, the lack of backup personnel may force your company to go without assistance during an IT crisis. As your business expands, network unavailability and trouble with critical software are more expensive. The budget you thought you were conserving on an independent can be consumed fast by lost productivity. Progent offers an on-call source of reserve service expertise to make sure your network is always available.

  • Build a Solid Foundation for Smooth Expansion
    Companies often start with an information architecture implemented on a modest budget. Without a scalable framework, band-aid fixes often get thrown on top of an unstable foundation. As a company grows, stability and scalability problems can hinder the productivity of the business. These badly designed systems require proper assessment, intelligent long-term planning, and broad-based IT expertise to upgrade to a network infrastructure able to offer the stable foundation to handle vital business demands and simplify downstream growth.

  • Work with Solution Providers Rather Than Technology Vendors
    Smaller businesses require advice and technical training to navigate through an increasingly complex array of technology alternatives capable of accelerating business success and enhancing efficiency. Businesses do not need a network consultant who is attempting to resell a specific vendor's products. IT support and product selling can result in a situation where the proposed solution is built around a profitable product rather than the true requirements of a client. Progent avoids these dilemmas by offering only services rather than products. This allows Progent to match IT consulting with the real interests of customers.

What Makes Progent Different from Other Support Organizations?
Progent is a Microsoft Partner support company and Progent's head count, range of IT experience, refined support software, and familiarity with enterprise networking allow businesses to escape the pitfalls of exclusive dependence on smaller service organizations, individual freelance service providers, or over-stretched internal resources.

  • Automated Network Monitoring with MS Operations Manager
    Progent is one of the only support companies to provide round-the-clock system monitoring services powered by MS Operations Manager.
