Advantages of Progent's Network Help for Companies in Baton Rouge
Progent's remote network troubleshooting services enable your Baton Rouge business to experience the benefits of immediate, expert IT support without the expense of managing a full-time IT staff. Your network will acquire added business value by becoming increasingly reliable, efficient, and protected. Advantages to your business include:

  • Seamless virtual extension of your local IT resources
    With most offices in Baton Rouge and throughout Louisiana, local network service providers, whether consisting of outside consultants or a full-time IT staff, can handle the majority of technical issues. On the other hand, IT crises may spring up when local support personnel are too busy or unavailable, and some problems may involve IT products that is beyond the scope of your onsite service personnel. In these cases, Progent's on-call service professionals offer a convenient, quick, and affordable way to augment your local resources and to convey valuable knowledge to improve your capability to resolve future issues locally.

  • Less Reliance on Individual Consultants
    For network support, smaller organizations commonly depend on individual freelance service providers. While independent service people carry smaller internal costs than big consulting companies and can afford to charge lower rates, they are sometimes overbooked, making it hard to respond rapidly to urgent situations. If a freelance service provider is busy with another client, sick, on a trip, or in class, the lack of backup personnel may force your company to wait for assistance during an IT crisis. As your network grows, system unavailability and trouble with vital applications become more costly. The budget you thought you were conserving on an independent can be consumed quickly by reduced productivity. Progent provides a reliable source of backup support expertise to make sure your IT system stays available.

  • Create a Solid Foundation for Smooth Growth
    Organizations typically begin with an IT system implemented on a modest budget. Without a strong infrastructure, slap-dash repairs often get piled onto an unstable foundation. As a company grows, reliability and scalability issues can impede the productivity of the organization. These poorly designed environments need proper assessment, intelligent long-term planning, and broad-based technical knowledge to evolve to a system architecture able to deliver the solid foundation to meet critical business requirements and ease future growth.

  • Work with Problem Solvers Rather Than Technology Resellers
    Smaller companies need guidance and technical training to navigate through an ever more complicated array of technology options available for promoting business growth and enhancing productivity. Businesses do not need a computer consultant who is attempting to sell a certain vendor's products. Network support and product selling can lead to a scenario where the recommended solution is built around a profitable product instead of the genuine requirements of a client. Progent eliminates these conflicts of interest by selling only services rather than products. This enables Progent to match technical expertise with the real interests of customers.

Progent is a Microsoft Certified Partner support firm and Progent's number of employees, range of IT background, fine tuned remote support software, and familiarity with corporate IT allow businesses to escape the limitations associated with excessive reliance on smaller service firms, individual freelance service providers, or limited internal IT help.
