Advantages of Progent's Network Help for Offices in Columbus Ohio
Progent's remote network troubleshooting services enable your Columbus business to enjoy the benefits of on-call, enterprise-grade network support without the cost of managing an in-house IT organization. Your network will acquire added strategic worth by becoming more available, productive, and protected. Benefits to your company include:
- Convenient virtual expansion of your on-site IT resources
With most businesses in Columbus Ohio, local computer support resources, whether consisting of outside consultants or a full-time maintenance staff, can handle the majority of technical issues. However, serious problems may occur when your regular resources are overstretched or absent, 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 support professionals give you a convenient, fast, and economical way to supplement your regular resources and to convey useful knowledge to increase your ability to handle future problems in-house.
- Less Dependence on Freelance Service Providers
For IT support, smaller companies often rely on independent freelance service providers. While freelance consultants have less overhead than big support organizations and can often charge marginally less, they are sometimes overbooked, making it hard to respond rapidly to crisis situations. If a freelance service provider is occupied with another client, sick, on vacation, or in training, the absence of fallback personnel may require your business to go without help during an IT crisis. As your business grows, system downtime and trouble with vital applications become more expensive. The money you thought you were conserving on a freelancer can be consumed fast by reduced productivity. Progent provides a reliable source of reserve support expertise to make sure your network remains up and running.
- Build a Scalable Foundation for Smooth Growth
Organizations often start with an IT system created on a modest budget. Lacking a robust framework, band-aid fixes often get piled onto a shaky foundation. As a network grows, stability and expandability problems can hinder the productivity of the organization. Such badly designed systems require proper assessment, intelligent long-term planning, and broad-based IT knowledge to upgrade to a system architecture that can deliver the stable foundation to handle current business requirements and ease downstream growth.
- Interact with Problem Solvers Rather Than Product Vendors
Smaller offices need guidance and technical training to navigate through an increasingly complicated maze of technology alternatives available for accelerating business success and enhancing efficiency. These companies do not need a network engineer who is trying to earn a commission on a specific vendor's products. IT consulting and product sales can lead to a situation where the proposed
solution is built around a predetermined product instead of the true requirements of a client. Progent avoids these conflicts by offering just services rather than products. This enables Progent to match technical consulting with the best needs of clients.
How Is Progent Different from Other Support Organizations?
Progent is a Microsoft Partner consulting firm and Progent's number of employees, range of IT expertise, refined remote support tools, and understanding of enterprise networking allow businesses to escape the limitations of exclusive dependence on smaller consulting organizations, individual freelance consultants, or limited in-house resources.
Progent stands out by providing:
