Benefits of Progent's Network Help for Organizations in Columbus Ohio
Progent's remote support services enable your Columbus organization to have the benefits of immediate, world-class IT support without the cost of maintaining an in-house IT staff. Your network will acquire greater strategic value by being increasingly available, efficient, and protected. Benefits to your company include:
- Seamless virtual expansion of your on-site support resources
For most offices in Columbus Ohio, local computer service providers, whether represented by independent consultants or an in-house IT staff, can resolve the majority of technical issues. On the other hand, serious problems can strike when your regular support personnel are overstretched or unavailable, and some problems may stem from IT products that is unfamiliar to your local service personnel. In these cases, Progent's online service professionals provide a convenient, fast, and affordable way to augment your regular help and to transfer valuable knowledge to increase your capability to deal with future problems in-house.
- Less Dependence on Individual Service Providers
For IT support, smaller organizations commonly depend on independent freelance consultants. While independent consultants have less internal costs than larger consulting organizations and can afford to charge lower rates, they are occasionally overbooked, making it impossible to respond quickly to urgent situations. If a freelance service provider is occupied with another client, sick, on vacation, or in class, the lack of fallback help may force your company to go without assistance during an emergency. As your business grows, network unavailability and problems with critical applications are more expensive. The budget you thought you were saving on an independent can be consumed quickly by lost productivity. Progent provides an on-call source of reserve support experts to make sure your IT system remains up and running.
- Create a Scalable Foundation for Seamless Expansion
Organizations typically start with an IT architecture created on a modest budget. Without a proper framework, band-aid fixes often get piled on top of a shaky foundation. As a company grows, reliability and expandability issues can hinder the success of the business. These poorly designed environments require proper analysis, intelligent strategic planning, and broad-based IT knowledge to upgrade to a system architecture that can deliver the solid foundation to meet vital business requirements and simplify future expansion.
- Interact with Problem Solvers Instead of Technology Sellers
Smaller businesses require guidance and technical education to negotiate an increasingly complicated array of product alternatives available for promoting business success and improving efficiency. Businesses do not need a computer engineer who is attempting to earn a commission on a specific vendor's products. Network consulting and product sales can lead to a situation where the recommended
solution is built around a predetermined technology rather than the true requirements of a client. Progent avoids these conflicts by selling just services rather than products. This allows Progent to align technical consulting with the best interests of clients.
How Is Progent Different from Other Support Organizations?
Progent is a Microsoft Certified Partner support firm and Progent's number of employees, depth of technical background, refined remote support tools, and understanding of enterprise networking allow businesses to avoid the limitations of exclusive reliance on smaller consulting organizations, independent freelance consultants, or limited internal IT help.
Progent adds value by offering:
