Benefits of Progent's Network Help for Offices in Chicago Illinois
Progent's online support services allow your Chicago organization to experience the advantages of timely, enterprise-class network support without the expense of maintaining an in-house IT staff. Your network will acquire greater strategic value by becoming increasingly available, productive, and protected. Advantages to your company include:
- Convenient virtual expansion of your on-site IT resources
With most organizations in Chicago Illinois, local network service resources, whether represented by independent consultants or a full-time maintenance staff, can solve typical network problems. On the other hand, major troubles can spring up when your regular support personnel are too busy or unavailable, and some trouble may be associated with technology that is beyond the scope of your onsite service personnel. In these cases, Progent's on-call service specialists offer an easy, fast, and economical solution to augment your local help and to convey valuable information to increase your capability to handle future problems locally.
- Less Reliance on Individual Service Providers
For network support, smaller businesses commonly rely on individual freelance consultants. While independent consultants carry less overhead than big support organizations and can often charge marginally less, they are sometimes overbooked, making it impossible to respond rapidly to crisis situations. If an independent consultant is occupied with another customer, ill, on a trip, or in training, the lack of fallback help may require your company to go without assistance during an IT crisis. As your company grows, system unavailability and problems with vital software are more costly. The money you thought you were conserving on an independent can be eaten up quickly by reduced productivity. Progent provides a reliable source of backup support experts to make sure your IT system is always up and running.
- Build a Scalable Foundation for Smooth Expansion
Companies often begin with an information architecture created on a modest budget. Without a strong framework, slap-dash repairs can get piled onto an unstable foundation. As a network grows, stability and scalability issues can hinder the success of the organization. These poorly built systems need proper analysis, smart long-term planning, and broad-based IT knowledge to evolve to a network infrastructure able to deliver the solid foundation to handle current business requirements and facilitate downstream expansion.
- Interact with Solution Providers Rather Than Technology Sellers
Smaller businesses require guidance and technical training to navigate through an ever more complicated array of technology alternatives capable of accelerating business growth and improving productivity. These companies hardly need a network consultant who is motivated to earn a commission on a certain vendor's technology. Network consulting and product sales can lead to a scenario where the proposed
solution is built around a profitable technology rather than the true needs of a client. Progent eliminates these dilemmas by offering only services instead of products. This enables Progent to match IT expertise with the best needs of clients.
What Makes Progent Unique from Other Support Firms?
Progent is a Microsoft Certified Partner support firm and Progent's head count, range of technical background, fine tuned remote support software, and understanding of corporate IT allow offices to escape the pitfalls associated with excessive reliance on smaller service firms, independent freelance service providers, or over-stretched internal resources.
