Benefits of Progent's Network Help for Companies in Chicago Illinois
Progent's online network troubleshooting services allow your Chicago organization to realize the benefits of on-call, enterprise-class IT support without the expense of managing a full-time IT staff. Your information system will derive added business worth by being more reliable, efficient, and secure. Benefits to your company include:
- Convenient remote expansion of your local IT resources
With most companies in Chicago Illinois, nearby network service resources, whether consisting of freelance consultants or an in-house IT staff, can resolve the majority of network issues. However, major troubles may spring up when local resources are too busy or absent, and some trouble may be associated with technology that is beyond the scope of your usual support technicians. In these cases, Progent's online support experts offer a convenient, fast, and budget-friendly solution to augment your local help and to transfer useful information to increase your ability to handle downstream problems in-house.
- Less Reliance on Freelance Consultants
For IT maintenance, smaller organizations often depend on independent freelance consultants. While independent consultants have less overhead than larger support companies and can afford to charge lower rates, they are occasionally overextended, making it difficult to respond quickly to crisis situations. If a freelance consultant is occupied with another client, sick, on a trip, or in class, the lack of reserve help may force your company to wait for assistance during an IT crisis. As your business expands, system unavailability and problems with vital applications are more expensive. The money you thought you were conserving on a freelancer can be eaten up fast by reduced productivity. Progent offers a ready source of reserve service experts to make sure your network remains available.
- Create a Scalable Foundation for Smooth Growth
Organizations typically begin with an IT architecture implemented on a shoestring budget. Lacking a strong infrastructure, slap-dash repairs often get piled onto a shaky foundation. As a company grows, stability and expandability issues can hinder the success of the organization. Such badly designed systems require proper analysis, intelligent strategic planning, and extensive IT expertise to upgrade to a network infrastructure that can provide the solid foundation to meet current business requirements and simplify downstream expansion.
- Interact with Solution Providers Instead of Technology Vendors
Smaller offices need advice and technical education to navigate through an increasingly complex maze of product options capable of promoting business growth and enhancing efficiency. These companies do not need a network engineer who is motivated to resell a specific vendor's products. IT support and product selling can lead to a scenario where the recommended
solution is built around a predetermined technology rather than the true requirements of a business. Progent eliminates these dilemmas by offering only services rather than products. This enables Progent to align IT expertise with the real needs of customers.
How Is Progent Unique from Other Service Firms?
Progent is a Microsoft Partner consulting company and Progent's number of employees, depth of IT background, fine tuned support software, and understanding of corporate IT allow companies to escape the limitations associated with excessive dependence on smaller service firms, individual freelance service providers, or over-stretched internal resources.
Progent stands out by offering:

- Full Documentation of Delivered Services
Progent has created a comprehensive service reporting system that stores and formats complete documentation for all delivered support activities. Unlike many freelance consultants or local support organizations who provide scant documentation or specifics of tasks performed, every service delivered by Progent is accompanied by comprehensive documentation. Each Progent consultant has use of the service documentation transmitted by every consultant to every customer. The practice of detailing and organizing service activity allows more effective support and avoids a slew of typical problems such as when a service customer is effectively held hostage to a consultant who refuses to release vital service information.
