Benefits of Progent's IT Support for Companies in Corpus Christi
Progent's remote support services enable your Corpus Christi business to have the benefits of on-call, world-class network support without the expense of managing an in-house IT organization. Your information system will acquire added strategic value by becoming more available, productive, and protected. Benefits to your company include:

  • Seamless virtual extension of your on-site IT resources
    For most businesses in Corpus Christi or anywhere in Texas, nearby computer service providers, whether consisting of outside consultants or an in-house IT staff, can solve typical technical issues. On the other hand, major troubles can occur when local resources are too busy or absent, and some trouble may stem from IT products that is beyond the scope of your local support personnel. In these cases, Progent's on-call service professionals give you a convenient, fast, and economical solution to supplement your local help and to pass on valuable knowledge to improve your capability to resolve future issues in-house.

  • Less Dependence on Freelance Service Providers
    For IT maintenance, smaller businesses commonly depend on individual freelance service providers. While freelance service people carry smaller overhead than larger consulting companies and can often charge lower rates, they are occasionally overbooked, making it impossible to respond quickly to crisis situations. If a freelance consultant is occupied with another client, sick, on vacation, or in class, the absence of reserve help may require your business to wait for assistance during an emergency. As your company expands, network unavailability and trouble with vital software become more costly. The budget you thought you were saving on an independent can be eaten up fast by reduced productivity. Progent offers a reliable source of backup service expertise to insure your IT system stays available.

  • Create a Scalable Basis for Seamless Growth
    Companies often start with an IT architecture created on a shoestring budget. Lacking a strong framework, band-aid repairs can get piled on top of an unstable foundation. When a network grows, reliability and expandability problems can impede the productivity of the business. These poorly built systems require proper analysis, smart long-term planning, and wide technical expertise to upgrade to a network infrastructure that can offer the solid foundation to meet critical business demands and facilitate downstream expansion.

  • Interact with Solution Providers Instead of Product Sellers
    Smaller companies require guidance and technical education to negotiate an ever more complicated array of technology alternatives capable of promoting business success and improving efficiency. Businesses hardly need a computer consultant who is motivated to earn a commission on a specific vendor's technology. Network support and product sales can lead to a scenario where the recommended solution is designed around a profitable product rather than the genuine requirements of a client. Progent eliminates these dilemmas by offering only services rather than products. This enables Progent to align technical consulting with the best interests of clients.

How Is Progent Different from Other Service Organizations?
Progent is a Microsoft Partner consulting firm and Progent's head count, range of IT expertise, fine tuned remote support software, and understanding of corporate IT enable companies to avoid the pitfalls associated with exclusive reliance on smaller service organizations, independent freelance consultants, or over-stretched internal resources.
