Benefits of Progent's Network Help for Companies in Charlotte
Progent's remote support services allow your Charlotte organization to enjoy the benefits of immediate, world-class IT support without the expense of maintaining a full-time IT staff. Your network will acquire greater strategic value by becoming more reliable, productive, and secure. Benefits to your business include:

  • Convenient virtual extension of your local IT resources
    For most businesses in Charlotte or anywhere in North Carolina, local network support resources, whether represented by independent consultants or an internal IT staff, can handle typical network problems. However, serious problems can strike when local resources are too busy or absent, and some trouble may stem from technology that is unfamiliar to your local service technicians. In these cases, Progent's on-call service experts give you an easy, fast, and budget-friendly solution to supplement your local help and to pass on valuable knowledge to increase your capability to resolve future problems in-house.

  • Less Dependence on Freelance Consultants
    For IT support, smaller businesses commonly depend on individual freelance service providers. Although independent service people carry smaller overhead than larger support organizations and can afford to charge lower rates, they are often overextended, making it impossible to respond rapidly to urgent situations. If a freelance consultant is occupied with another client, ill, on vacation, or in class, the lack of reserve personnel may require your company to go without assistance during an emergency. As your business grows, system downtime and trouble with critical software become more costly. The money you thought you were conserving on an independent can be consumed quickly by lost productivity. Progent provides an on-call source of backup service expertise to insure your IT system remains up and running.

  • Build a Solid Basis for Seamless Growth
    Businesses often start with an information architecture created on a modest budget. Lacking a proper framework, band-aid repairs often get piled on top of a shaky foundation. When a network grows, reliability and scalability issues can impede the success of the organization. These poorly designed environments need careful assessment, smart long-term planning, and extensive IT knowledge to upgrade to a network infrastructure able to provide the solid foundation to handle critical business demands and facilitate future expansion.

  • Interact with Problem Solvers Rather Than Product Resellers
    Smaller organizations need guidance and technical training to navigate through an ever more complicated maze of technology alternatives available for promoting business success and enhancing efficiency. These companies do not need a network engineer who is motivated to sell a certain vendor's products. IT consulting and product sales can result in a scenario where the proposed solution is built around a predetermined technology instead of the true requirements of a client. Progent eliminates these conflicts of interest by selling only services instead of products. This allows Progent to match IT consulting with the best interests of customers.

How Is Progent Unique from Other Service Organizations?
Progent is a Microsoft Partner consulting company and Progent's head count, range of IT experience, refined support tools, and familiarity with enterprise networking enable businesses to escape the limitations associated with exclusive dependence on smaller consulting organizations, independent freelance service providers, or over-stretched in-house resources.

Progent adds value by providing:

  • Best Practices

  • Value Pricing

Progent's one-minute granularity avoids big invoices for quick solutions so you will not be forced to permit simple problems to stay unaddressed.

  • Information Transfer
    Progent is committed to knowledge transfer from Progent's consultants to customers. By educating clients to resolve technical issues that are within their scope, Progent is able to concentrate on providing hard-to-find skills where Progent faces few competitors.
