Benefits of Progent's IT Support for Businesses in Brisbane Queensland
Progent's remote network troubleshooting services enable your Brisbane business to have the benefits of on-call, expert network support without the cost of managing a full-time IT staff. Your information system will derive greater strategic value by being more reliable, productive, and protected. Benefits to your business include:
- Convenient remote extension of your on-site support resources
For most organizations in Brisbane Queensland, nearby computer service providers, whether consisting of freelance consultants or an in-house IT staff, can solve the majority of technical issues. On the other hand, IT crises may strike when your regular resources are too busy or absent, and some problems may be associated with technology that is beyond the scope of your usual support personnel. In these situations, Progent's online support experts provide an easy, fast, and budget-friendly solution to augment your regular resources and to pass on valuable knowledge to increase your ability to resolve future problems in-house.
- Less Reliance on Individual Consultants
For network maintenance, smaller companies commonly rely on independent freelance service providers. While freelance service people carry smaller internal costs than larger consulting firms and can afford to charge lower rates, they are occasionally 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 class, the absence of fallback help may require your company to wait for assistance during an emergency. As your company grows, network downtime and problems with critical software become more expensive. The budget you thought you were conserving on an independent can be consumed quickly by lost productivity. Progent offers a dependable source of reserve support expertise to insure your network stays available.
- Build a Scalable Foundation for Seamless Expansion
Businesses typically begin with an IT system created on a modest budget. Without a robust infrastructure, band-aid repairs often get thrown on top of a weak foundation. As a network grows, reliability and scalability issues can hinder the productivity of the business. Such badly designed systems need careful assessment, smart strategic planning, and broad-based IT knowledge to upgrade to a system infrastructure able to provide the solid foundation to handle current business requirements and facilitate downstream expansion.
- Interact with Solution Providers Rather Than Technology Resellers
Smaller offices need guidance and technical training to navigate through an increasingly complex array of technology options capable of accelerating business success and enhancing productivity. They do not need a computer engineer who is motivated to resell a specific vendor's products. Network consulting and product selling can result in a scenario where the recommended
solution is designed around a predetermined product rather than the genuine requirements of a client. Progent avoids these conflicts by selling only services rather than products. This allows Progent to align technical consulting with the real needs of customers.
How Is Progent Unique from Other Support Firms?
Progent is a Microsoft Certified Partner consulting company and Progent's staff size, breadth of technical knowledge, refined support tools, and understanding of enterprise networking allow companies to avoid the limitations of exclusive reliance on smaller service organizations, individual freelance service providers, or over-stretched internal IT help.
Progent stands out by providing:

Progent's one-minute granularity eliminates big invoices for fast fixes so you will not be forced to allow less critical problems to fester.
- Full Documentation of Delivered Services
Progent has created a comprehensive service reporting system that records and formats detailed documentation for all delivered support activities. Unlike some independent consultants or local support organizations who provide scant documentation or details of tasks done, every service delivered by Progent is tracked by comprehensive documentation. Every Progent staff member has access to the service documentation transmitted by each consultant to every client. The discipline of documenting and archiving service activity allows more efficient service and avoids a slew of common misfortunes such as when a support customer is effectively held captive to a consultant who won't let go of vital service information.
- Remote Server Monitoring with Microsoft Operations Manager
