Advantages of Progent's Network Help for Offices in Austin Texas
Progent's remote IT consulting services allow your Austin company to realize the benefits of timely, enterprise-level network support without the expense of maintaining a full-time IT staff. Your information system will acquire greater business worth by becoming increasingly reliable, efficient, and protected. Benefits to your business include:
- Seamless virtual expansion of your on-site support resources
With most businesses in Austin Texas, local computer support resources, whether made up of independent consultants or a full-time maintenance staff, can resolve typical network problems. However, serious problems sometimes spring up when local resources are too busy or absent, and some problems may stem from IT products that is unfamiliar to your usual service personnel. In these cases, Progent's online support specialists provide an easy, fast, and affordable solution to augment your local resources and to pass on valuable knowledge to increase your capability to handle future problems in-house.
- Reduced Reliance on Freelance Service Providers
For network maintenance, smaller offices often depend on independent freelance consultants. Although independent service people have smaller internal costs than big consulting organizations and can afford to charge marginally less, they are occasionally overbooked, making it difficult to respond rapidly to urgent situations. If an independent consultant is busy with another customer, ill, on vacation, or in training, the absence of backup help may require your company to go without help during an IT crisis. As your network expands, system downtime and problems with vital software become more costly. The budget you thought you were saving on an independent can be consumed fast by reduced productivity. Progent offers a ready source of reserve support expertise to insure your IT system stays up and running.
- Create a Solid Foundation for Seamless Growth
Businesses often start with an IT architecture implemented on a shoestring budget. Without a robust infrastructure, band-aid repairs often get thrown onto a weak foundation. When a company grows, reliability and expandability problems can impede the success of the business. Such poorly designed systems require proper analysis, intelligent long-term planning, and wide IT knowledge to evolve to a network architecture able to deliver the solid foundation to handle vital business requirements and simplify downstream expansion.
- Work with Solution Providers Instead of Product Vendors
Smaller businesses need guidance and technical training to negotiate an increasingly complicated array of technology options capable of accelerating business success and improving efficiency. These companies do not need a computer consultant who is attempting to resell a specific vendor's products. Network support and product sales can lead to a situation where the proposed
solution is designed around a predetermined technology rather than the genuine needs of a client. Progent eliminates these conflicts of interest by offering just services rather than products. This allows Progent to match IT expertise with the real interests of clients.
How Is Progent Unique from Other Service Firms?
Progent is a Microsoft Partner support company and Progent's number of employees, breadth of technical expertise, refined remote support software, and understanding of corporate IT allow companies to escape the limitations associated with exclusive dependence on smaller service firms, individual freelance service providers, or limited internal IT help.
