Benefits of Progent's Network Help for Offices in Baton Rouge
Progent's online IT consulting services enable your Baton Rouge organization to realize the benefits of immediate, enterprise-level IT support without the expense of maintaining an in-house IT staff. Your information system will derive greater strategic worth by becoming more reliable, efficient, and secure. Advantages to your business include:

  • Convenient virtual expansion of your on-site IT resources
    For most companies in Baton Rouge or anywhere in Louisiana, local network service providers, whether consisting of freelance consultants or a full-time IT staff, can take care of the majority of technical problems. On the other hand, major troubles sometimes spring up when your regular resources are overstretched or absent, and some trouble may be associated with technology that is unfamiliar to your usual support people. In these situations, Progent's on-call service specialists provide a convenient, fast, and economical way to augment your regular resources and to convey useful information to improve your ability to resolve future problems locally.

  • Less Dependence on Freelance Service Providers
    For IT maintenance, smaller businesses commonly rely on individual freelance service providers. Although independent service people have smaller internal costs than big support firms and can often charge lower rates, they are often overbooked, making it impossible to respond quickly to urgent situations. If an independent service provider is occupied with another customer, sick, on vacation, or in class, the absence of backup personnel may force your business to go without help during an emergency. As your business grows, network unavailability and problems with vital applications become more costly. The money you thought you were conserving on an independent can be eaten up quickly by reduced productivity. Progent offers a reliable source of reserve service experts to insure your IT system is always available.

  • Create a Scalable Foundation for Seamless Expansion
    Companies typically begin with an information system created on a shoestring budget. Without a scalable framework, band-aid repairs often get thrown onto a weak foundation. When a company grows, reliability and expandability problems can hinder the productivity of the business. These badly designed systems need proper analysis, intelligent long-term planning, and wide IT expertise to upgrade to a system infrastructure able to provide the stable foundation to meet current business requirements and facilitate downstream expansion.

  • Interact with Problem Solvers Rather Than Technology Sellers
    Smaller companies require advice and technical education to navigate through an increasingly complicated maze of product options available for accelerating business growth and improving productivity. They hardly need a network engineer who is attempting to sell a specific vendor's technology. Network consulting and product sales can result in a situation where the recommended solution is designed around a predetermined technology instead of the genuine needs of a client. Progent avoids these conflicts by selling just services rather than products. This allows Progent to match technical consulting with the real needs of customers.

How Is Progent Unique from Other Service Firms?
Progent is a Microsoft Partner consulting company and Progent's head count, range of technical knowledge, fine tuned remote support software, and understanding of enterprise networking allow businesses to escape the pitfalls of excessive dependence on smaller consulting organizations, individual freelance service providers, or limited internal resources.

  • Value Pricing

In addition, Progent imposes no startup charge and requires no monthly commitment for support services provided during normal working hours. Many service firms impose large minimum payments or charge for every fifteen minutes or longer. Progent's one-minute granularity does away with big bills for fast solutions so you won't be tempted to allow minor problems to fester.

  • Knowledge Transfer
    Progent practices knowledge transfer from Progent's consultants to customers. By teaching customers to deal with technical issues that are within their comfort zone, Progent is able to concentrate on offering high-value services where Progent faces few competitors. Companies who work with familiar freelance service providers or who employ internal support personnel benefit when Progent passes on information about critical technology and proven processes to make their IT environments more reliable, secure, and productive.
