Advantages of Progent's IT Support for Offices in Birmingham Alabama
Progent's online network troubleshooting services enable your Birmingham company to experience the benefits of immediate, enterprise-class IT support without the cost of managing a full-time IT staff. Your information system will acquire greater business value by becoming increasingly reliable, efficient, and secure. Benefits to your company include:
- Convenient virtual extension of your local support resources
For most offices in Birmingham Alabama, local network service resources, whether represented by freelance consultants or an in-house maintenance staff, can resolve typical network issues. However, serious problems might occur when your regular support personnel are overstretched or unavailable, and some problems may be associated with IT products that is unfamiliar to your onsite support technicians. In these instances, Progent's on-call support specialists give you an easy, fast, and budget-friendly solution to augment your local help and to convey useful knowledge to increase your ability to deal with downstream problems in-house.
- Reduced Reliance on Individual Service Providers
For IT support, smaller offices often rely on independent freelance service providers. While freelance service people have smaller internal costs than larger consulting companies and can afford to charge lower rates, they are often overextended, making it difficult to respond quickly to urgent situations. If a freelance consultant is occupied with another client, ill, on a trip, or in training, the lack of reserve personnel may force your company to wait for help during an emergency. As your company grows, network downtime and problems with vital applications are more costly. The money you thought you were conserving on a freelancer can be eaten up fast by lost productivity. Progent offers a ready source of backup support expertise to make sure your network is always available.
- Build a Solid Basis for Smooth Expansion
Businesses often begin with an IT architecture implemented on a modest budget. Without a proper framework, slap-dash repairs can get piled onto a weak foundation. As a company grows, stability and scalability problems can impede the success of the organization. These badly built systems need proper assessment, intelligent strategic planning, and extensive technical expertise to evolve to a system architecture that can provide the solid foundation to handle critical business requirements and ease downstream growth.
- Interact with Problem Solvers Rather Than Product Resellers
Smaller companies need advice and technical training to negotiate an increasingly complicated array of product options capable of accelerating business growth and enhancing productivity. Businesses hardly need a computer engineer who is motivated to resell a certain vendor's products. IT support and product sales can lead to a scenario where the recommended
solution is designed around a profitable technology rather than the genuine requirements of a business. Progent avoids these conflicts by selling just services rather than products. This enables Progent to align technical consulting with the best interests of customers.
What Makes Progent Different from Other Service Organizations?
Progent is a Microsoft Partner support firm and Progent's staff size, range of IT expertise, refined remote support software, and familiarity with corporate IT allow offices to escape the limitations of exclusive dependence on smaller consulting firms, individual freelance service providers, or limited in-house IT help.
