Benefits of Progent's IT Support for Companies in Austin
Progent's remote technical help services enable your Austin business to experience the benefits of immediate, enterprise-grade network support without the expense of maintaining an in-house IT staff. Your information system will derive added business value by being more available, productive, and secure. Benefits to your business include:

  • Seamless remote extension of your on-site IT resources
    With most offices in Austin or anywhere in Texas, local computer service providers, whether represented by independent consultants or an internal maintenance staff, can resolve typical network issues. On the other hand, IT crises sometimes spring up when local support personnel are overstretched or unavailable, and some problems may involve IT products that is beyond the scope of your usual service people. In these instances, Progent's online support professionals give you an easy, quick, and budget-friendly solution to augment your regular help and to convey valuable information to increase your capability to handle future issues in-house.

  • Less Reliance on Freelance Service Providers
    For network maintenance, smaller offices commonly depend on individual freelance service providers. While freelance consultants carry less overhead than big support firms and can afford to charge lower rates, they are occasionally stretched too thin, making it difficult to respond rapidly to crisis situations. If an independent consultant is occupied with another customer, sick, on vacation, or in training, the absence of backup help may force your business to go without assistance during an emergency. As your network expands, system downtime and trouble with critical applications are more expensive. The budget you thought you were saving on an independent can be eaten up fast by reduced productivity. Progent offers a dependable source of reserve service expertise to insure your network is always up and running.

  • Build a Solid Basis for Smooth Growth
    Organizations typically start with an information system created on a modest budget. Without a scalable framework, band-aid fixes often get thrown on top of a weak foundation. When a company grows, reliability and expandability issues can hinder the success of the business. Such badly designed systems need proper assessment, intelligent long-term planning, and extensive technical knowledge to upgrade to a network architecture that can deliver the solid foundation to handle vital business requirements and simplify future expansion.

  • Work with Solution Providers Rather Than Technology Resellers
    Smaller companies need guidance and technical education to negotiate an ever more complicated array of product options available for accelerating business growth and enhancing productivity. Businesses do not need a network engineer who is trying to resell a specific vendor's products. IT support and product sales can lead to a situation where the proposed solution is designed around a predetermined product instead of the true requirements of a business. Progent avoids these dilemmas by selling just services instead of products. This enables Progent to align IT expertise with the real interests of clients.

What Makes Progent Different from Other Service Firms?
Progent is a Microsoft Partner consulting firm and Progent's staff size, range of IT expertise, fine tuned remote support tools, and familiarity with corporate IT enable offices to avoid the limitations associated with exclusive reliance on smaller service firms, independent freelance service providers, or limited in-house resources.
