Even if your Dallas business has a regular independent consultant or employs an in-house organization that know how to handle the majority of network issues, Progentís Microsoft certified consultants are available to provide an easy and seamless virtual expansion of your on-site resources for situations when your usual service personnel either lack the time or the experience to solve sudden system emergencies or especially challenging integration problems.

Advantages of Progent's IT Support for Offices in Dallas
Progent's remote network troubleshooting services allow your Dallas company to experience the benefits of immediate, enterprise-class network support without the cost of managing an in-house IT organization. Your information system will acquire greater strategic value by becoming more reliable, efficient, and secure. Advantages to your business include:

  • Seamless virtual expansion of your local IT resources
    With most businesses in Dallas or anywhere in Texas, nearby computer support resources, whether made up of freelance consultants or an internal maintenance staff, can deal with the majority of technical issues. On the other hand, major troubles might strike when your regular resources are overstretched or unavailable, and some trouble may involve IT products that is beyond the scope of your usual support people. In these cases, Progent's on-call support experts offer an easy, quick, and economical solution to supplement your local resources and to pass on useful information to increase your capability to handle downstream issues in-house.

  • Less Dependence on Individual Consultants
    For network maintenance, smaller businesses often depend on individual freelance service providers. Although freelance consultants carry smaller internal costs than larger consulting organizations and can often charge lower rates, they are often stretched too thin, making it hard to respond rapidly to urgent situations. If an independent consultant is busy with another customer, sick, on vacation, or in training, the absence of reserve personnel may require your business to go without assistance during an emergency. As your network grows, system downtime and trouble with critical applications are more expensive. The money you thought you were conserving on an independent can be eaten up quickly by reduced productivity. Progent provides an on-call source of backup support expertise to insure your IT system stays up and running.

  • Build a Solid Foundation for Seamless Growth
    Organizations often begin with an information system implemented on a modest budget. Lacking a strong infrastructure, slap-dash repairs can get piled on top of an unstable foundation. When a network grows, reliability and expandability problems can impede the success of the organization. These poorly designed systems need proper assessment, intelligent strategic planning, and broad-based IT knowledge to upgrade to a system infrastructure able to deliver the stable foundation to meet critical business requirements and ease future expansion.

  • Work with Solution Providers Instead of Product Sellers
    Smaller businesses require advice and technical education to navigate through an increasingly complicated array of technology options capable of accelerating business growth and improving productivity. These companies do not need a network consultant who is attempting to resell a certain vendor's technology. Network support and product sales can result in a scenario where the recommended solution is built around a profitable product instead of the genuine requirements of a client. Progent avoids these dilemmas by offering just services rather than products. This allows Progent to align technical consulting with the best needs of clients.

How Is Progent Unique from Other Support Organizations?
Progent is a Microsoft Partner consulting company and Progent's number of employees, range of technical background, fine tuned remote support software, and familiarity with corporate IT allow businesses to escape the limitations associated with excessive dependence on smaller service firms, individual freelance consultants, or limited in-house IT help.

Progent stands out by providing:

  • Best Practices
    Progentís staff of Microsoft and Cisco Premier consultants average longer than a decade of hands-on industry experience, in the trenches of network support, performing a broad range of technical tasks for a large mix of customers. Every Progent consultant shares a proven set of personal best practices which are incorporated into shared leading practices standards that Progent teaches its consulting personnel. This means that you get not just expert technical help, but also a consultant with field-tested approaches for using computer knowledge to resolve real-world IT problems efficiently.

  • Value Pricing
    Progent's pricing policy is to charge for online support and on-site help by the minute. As a result, you are billed just for delivered services. Progent does not demand a more expensive rate for off-hours or emergency support, and inside California or in areas where Progent provides in-person service, Progent does not charge for travel time except for urgent support where on-site time is less than four hours. In addition, Progent applies no service activation fee and asks no retainer for support services provided during normal business hours. Many service firms demand substantial minimum fees or charge for every quarter hour or longer. Progent's one-minute granularity avoids large invoices for fast solutions so you won't be forced to permit simple problems to fester.

  • Knowledge Transfer
    Progent practices knowledge transfer from Progent's consultants to customers. By teaching customers to resolve technical issues that are within their scope, Progent is able to focus on offering hard-to-find skills where Progent has few competitors. Companies who work with familiar freelance service providers or who maintain internal IT staffs benefit when Progent passes on knowledge about critical technology and tested processes to make their networks more reliable, protected, and productive.

  • Remote Network Monitoring with MS Operations Manager
    Progent is one of the few support firms to provide round-the-clock remote monitoring services powered by Microsoft Operations Manager. Microsoft Operations Manager allows your network maintenance to be anticipatory instead of reactive. By uncovering potential problems before they cause lost productivity, network monitoring can keep your information network from stressful and costly service losses.
