Advantages of Progent's IT Support for Organizations in Charlotte
Progent's remote network troubleshooting services allow your Charlotte organization to enjoy the benefits of on-call, enterprise-class network support without the cost of managing a full-time IT staff. Your network will derive added business value by being increasingly reliable, efficient, and protected. Advantages to your company include:

  • Seamless virtual extension of your on-site support resources
    With most organizations in Charlotte and throughout North Carolina, nearby computer service resources, whether represented by independent consultants or an in-house IT staff, can take care of the majority of technical issues. On the other hand, serious problems might strike when your regular resources are overstretched or absent, and some problems may be associated with IT products that is beyond the scope of your local service personnel. In these cases, Progent's on-call support experts offer a convenient, quick, and affordable solution to augment your local resources and to convey useful information to improve your ability to handle downstream issues locally.

  • Reduced Dependence on Individual Consultants
    For network maintenance, smaller offices often rely on independent freelance service providers. While freelance service people have smaller internal costs than big consulting organizations and can afford to charge marginally less, they are sometimes overextended, making it impossible to respond rapidly to crisis situations. If an independent service provider is occupied with another client, sick, on a trip, or in class, the lack of reserve help may require your business to go without help during an emergency. As your business expands, system unavailability and problems with vital software are more expensive. The money you thought you were saving on a freelancer can be consumed quickly by lost productivity. Progent provides a ready source of backup service experts to insure your network is always available.

  • Create a Solid Foundation for Seamless Growth
    Companies typically begin with an information architecture created on a modest budget. Lacking a strong framework, slap-dash repairs often get piled onto a weak foundation. As a company grows, stability and expandability issues can impede the success of the organization. Such badly designed systems require proper assessment, smart long-term planning, and extensive IT knowledge to evolve to a system architecture able to provide the stable foundation to meet critical business demands and facilitate downstream expansion.

  • Work with Problem Solvers Rather Than Technology Vendors
    Smaller offices require guidance and technical education to negotiate an ever more complex array of product options available for promoting business growth and improving productivity. These companies hardly need a network consultant who is attempting to earn a commission on a certain vendor's technology. IT support and product sales can result in a scenario where the recommended solution is designed around a profitable product rather than the true requirements of a business. Progent eliminates these dilemmas by offering only services instead of products. This enables Progent to match technical expertise with the best needs of clients.

How Is Progent Different from Other Service Firms?
Progent is a Microsoft Partner support firm and Progent's number of employees, depth of IT experience, refined support software, and understanding of enterprise networking enable companies to avoid the pitfalls associated with excessive dependence on smaller service organizations, individual freelance service providers, or limited internal IT help.
