Advantages of Progent's Network Help for Businesses in Charlotte
Progent's online network troubleshooting services enable your Charlotte organization to experience the advantages of on-call, enterprise-level network support without the expense of managing a full-time IT staff. Your information system will derive greater business worth by becoming increasingly reliable, productive, and protected. Benefits to your company include:

  • Seamless remote expansion of your on-site support resources
    For most offices in Charlotte and throughout North Carolina, nearby computer support providers, whether made up of freelance consultants or an internal maintenance staff, can deal with typical network issues. However, major troubles may spring up when your regular resources are too busy or absent, and some problems may be associated with IT products that is unfamiliar to your local support technicians. In these instances, Progent's online support experts provide a convenient, quick, and budget-friendly way to augment your local help and to convey useful information to increase your ability to resolve downstream problems locally.

  • Reduced Reliance on Freelance Consultants
    For network maintenance, smaller offices often depend on independent freelance service providers. While freelance consultants carry smaller internal costs than big consulting firms and can often charge lower rates, they are sometimes stretched too thin, making it hard to respond rapidly to crisis situations. If a freelance consultant is busy with another client, ill, on vacation, or in training, the lack of fallback help may force your company to go without assistance during an IT crisis. As your network expands, system downtime and problems with critical software become more costly. The money you thought you were saving on an independent can be consumed quickly by reduced productivity. Progent offers an on-call source of reserve support expertise to insure your IT system remains available.

  • Create a Scalable Foundation for Seamless Growth
    Businesses often begin with an IT system created on a shoestring budget. Without a scalable infrastructure, band-aid fixes often get thrown on top of an unstable foundation. When a company grows, stability and expandability problems can impede the productivity of the organization. These badly designed environments require proper assessment, smart strategic planning, and extensive technical expertise to upgrade to a network infrastructure able to provide the stable foundation to meet current business demands and facilitate future growth.

  • Work with Solution Providers Rather Than Product Sellers
    Smaller businesses require advice and technical training to navigate through an ever more complex array of technology alternatives capable of accelerating business success and improving efficiency. These companies hardly need a network engineer who is motivated to earn a commission on a certain vendor's products. Network consulting and product sales can result in a scenario where the proposed solution is built around a predetermined product rather than the genuine needs of a client. Progent eliminates these dilemmas by selling only services rather than products. This enables Progent to match IT consulting with the real needs of customers.

How Is Progent Different from Other Service Firms?
Progent is a Microsoft Partner consulting company and Progent's number of employees, breadth of IT knowledge, fine tuned support software, and understanding of enterprise networking allow offices to avoid the pitfalls associated with exclusive reliance on smaller service organizations, independent freelance consultants, or over-stretched internal IT help.
