Advantages of Progent's IT Support for Companies in Cleveland Ohio
Progent's online network troubleshooting services enable your Cleveland organization to realize the advantages of immediate, enterprise-grade network support without the expense of maintaining a full-time IT organization. Your network will derive added strategic value by becoming increasingly reliable, productive, and secure. Advantages to your business include:
- Seamless remote extension of your local IT resources
For most companies in Cleveland Ohio, nearby computer support resources, whether consisting of independent consultants or an internal maintenance staff, can handle typical technical issues. However, major troubles might spring up when your regular support personnel are overstretched or unavailable, and some trouble may be associated with IT products that is unfamiliar to your usual support technicians. In these cases, Progent's online service experts provide an easy, fast, and budget-friendly way to augment your regular help and to convey valuable information to increase your ability to handle downstream problems in-house.
- Less Dependence on Individual Service Providers
For network support, smaller offices commonly depend on independent freelance service providers. While independent consultants have smaller internal costs than big consulting firms and can afford to charge lower rates, they are sometimes overbooked, making it impossible to respond rapidly to crisis situations. If an independent consultant is occupied with another customer, sick, on a trip, or in training, the lack of backup personnel may force your business to go without assistance during an IT crisis. As your business expands, network unavailability and problems with critical software become more expensive. The budget you thought you were conserving on a freelancer can be eaten up fast by lost productivity. Progent provides an on-call source of backup support experts to make sure your network stays available.
- Build a Scalable Foundation for Seamless Growth
Organizations often begin with an IT system implemented on a modest budget. Without a proper framework, band-aid repairs can get thrown on top of a shaky foundation. When a network grows, stability and expandability problems can hinder the productivity of the business. Such poorly designed environments need careful assessment, intelligent strategic planning, and wide IT expertise to evolve to a system infrastructure able to deliver the solid foundation to meet vital business requirements and ease downstream growth.
- Interact with Solution Providers Instead of Product Vendors
Smaller companies require advice and technical education to navigate through an ever more complex maze of technology alternatives available for promoting business success and improving efficiency. Businesses hardly need a computer engineer who is attempting to earn a commission on a certain vendor's products. Network support and product selling can result in a scenario where the recommended
solution is designed around a profitable technology rather than the true requirements of a business. Progent avoids these conflicts of interest by selling only services rather than products. This allows Progent to match IT expertise with the best interests of clients.
How Is Progent Different from Other Service Organizations?
Progent is a Microsoft Partner consulting company and Progent's number of employees, depth of technical expertise, fine tuned remote support software, and understanding of corporate IT allow offices to avoid the pitfalls associated with excessive reliance on smaller service firms, independent freelance service providers, or over-stretched internal resources.
Progent stands out by providing:
