Benefits of Progent's Network Help for Companies in Clearwater
Progent's online IT consulting services allow your Clearwater company to realize the advantages of immediate, enterprise-grade IT support without the expense of maintaining a full-time IT staff. Your network will acquire greater business value by being more reliable, productive, and protected. Advantages to your company include:

  • Seamless remote expansion of your on-site support resources
    For most businesses in Clearwater and throughout Florida, local network service resources, whether represented by independent consultants or a full-time IT staff, can solve the majority of network issues. However, IT crises sometimes occur when local support personnel are overstretched or unavailable, and some problems may involve technology that is beyond the scope of your usual support technicians. In these instances, Progent's on-call service specialists provide a convenient, fast, and budget-friendly way to supplement your local help and to convey valuable knowledge to increase your capability to resolve future problems locally.

  • Reduced Dependence on Individual Service Providers
    For IT support, smaller organizations commonly rely on independent freelance service providers. While independent service people have smaller internal costs than big consulting organizations and can afford to charge marginally less, they are often overextended, making it hard to respond rapidly to crisis situations. If a freelance service provider is occupied with another customer, sick, on a trip, or in class, the absence of reserve personnel may force your business to go without assistance during an IT crisis. As your company expands, system unavailability and trouble with critical software are more costly. The budget you thought you were conserving on a freelancer can be eaten up fast by lost productivity. Progent offers a ready source of reserve service expertise to insure your IT system stays up and running.

  • Create a Scalable Basis for Seamless Growth
    Companies typically start with an IT system implemented on a modest budget. Without a scalable framework, slap-dash repairs can get thrown on top of an unstable foundation. When a network grows, stability and scalability issues can hinder the productivity of the organization. These badly built systems need careful assessment, intelligent strategic planning, and wide IT expertise to upgrade to a network infrastructure that can offer the stable foundation to handle vital business demands and simplify downstream growth.

  • Work with Solution Providers Instead of Technology Resellers
    Smaller companies require guidance and technical training to navigate through an ever more complex array of technology alternatives capable of promoting business success and enhancing efficiency. These companies hardly need a network engineer who is attempting to resell a specific vendor's technology. Network support and product sales can lead to a scenario where the proposed solution is built around a predetermined product rather than the true needs of a client. Progent eliminates these conflicts of interest by offering just services rather than products. This allows Progent to match IT expertise with the best needs of clients.

What Makes Progent Unique from Other Service Firms?
Progent is a Microsoft Certified Partner support firm and Progent's head count, breadth of IT experience, fine tuned remote support tools, and understanding of enterprise networking enable offices to escape the pitfalls of exclusive dependence on smaller consulting organizations, independent freelance service providers, or over-stretched internal resources.
