Advantages of Progent's IT Support for Companies in Chicago Illinois
Progent's remote IT consulting services enable your Chicago business to enjoy the advantages of timely, expert IT support without the expense of maintaining a full-time IT staff. Your network will acquire greater business value by being increasingly reliable, efficient, and protected. Advantages to your business include:
- Convenient remote extension of your local IT resources
With most companies in Chicago Illinois, local computer support resources, whether made up of independent consultants or an internal IT staff, can resolve typical technical problems. However, serious problems may spring up when your regular support personnel are overstretched or absent, and some problems may involve technology that is unfamiliar to your local service people. In these cases, Progent's online support specialists offer an easy, quick, and budget-friendly way to supplement your local resources and to pass on valuable knowledge to increase your capability to deal with future issues in-house.
- Reduced Dependence on Individual Service Providers
For network maintenance, smaller offices commonly depend on individual freelance service providers. While freelance service people carry less internal costs than big support companies and can afford to charge lower rates, they are often overbooked, making it difficult to respond rapidly to urgent situations. If a freelance consultant is occupied with another client, sick, on a trip, or in training, the absence of reserve help may force your business to wait for help during an emergency. As your network expands, network unavailability and problems with critical software are more costly. The budget you thought you were saving on an independent can be consumed quickly by reduced productivity. Progent provides a reliable source of backup service experts to insure your network is always up and running.
- Build a Solid Foundation for Seamless Expansion
Companies often begin with an IT architecture created on a modest budget. Lacking a scalable framework, band-aid fixes can get piled onto a weak foundation. As a company grows, reliability and scalability problems can hinder the success of the organization. These badly designed systems need proper analysis, smart long-term planning, and broad-based IT knowledge to upgrade to a system architecture able to provide the solid foundation to handle current business demands and simplify downstream expansion.
- Work with Solution Providers Rather Than Product Resellers
Smaller businesses require guidance and technical education to negotiate an increasingly complicated array of technology alternatives available for accelerating business success and enhancing productivity. They do not need a network consultant who is attempting to resell a specific vendor's technology. IT consulting and product selling can lead to a situation where the recommended
solution is built around a predetermined product rather than the genuine needs 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 real needs of customers.
How Is Progent Unique from Other Support Firms?
Progent is a Microsoft Certified Partner support firm and Progent's head count, breadth of IT experience, refined support software, and understanding of enterprise networking allow offices to avoid the limitations of exclusive dependence on smaller service organizations, independent freelance consultants, or over-stretched in-house resources.
Progent adds value by offering:
