Advantages of Progent's IT Support for Offices in Dayton Ohio
Progent's remote IT consulting services allow your Dayton company to enjoy the advantages of on-call, enterprise-level IT support without the expense of maintaining a full-time IT staff. Your network will acquire greater business value by becoming increasingly available, efficient, and protected. Benefits to your business include:
- Convenient remote extension of your local support resources
With most companies in Dayton Ohio, local network support resources, whether consisting of independent consultants or a full-time IT staff, can resolve the majority of network problems. On the other hand, major troubles may spring up when your regular resources are too busy or absent, and some problems may involve IT products that is unfamiliar to your usual support personnel. In these situations, Progent's online service specialists offer an easy, quick, and budget-friendly solution to augment your regular resources and to convey useful information to increase your ability to resolve downstream issues locally.
- Less Dependence on Individual Service Providers
For IT support, smaller companies commonly rely on individual freelance consultants. Although freelance consultants carry less overhead than larger service organizations and can afford to charge marginally less, they are often overextended, making it difficult to respond rapidly to crisis situations. If an independent service provider is occupied with another client, sick, on vacation, or in class, the absence of backup personnel may require your company to wait for help during an IT crisis. As your company expands, system unavailability and problems with vital software are more costly. The budget you thought you were conserving on an independent can be consumed fast by lost productivity. Progent provides an on-call source of reserve support expertise to make sure your network stays up and running.
- Create a Scalable Basis for Seamless Growth
Companies typically start with an information system created on a shoestring budget. Lacking a scalable framework, band-aid fixes often get thrown on top of an unstable foundation. When a network grows, stability and scalability issues can hinder the success of the organization. Such poorly built environments need proper analysis, smart strategic planning, and broad-based IT expertise to evolve to a network infrastructure able to deliver the solid foundation to meet current business demands and simplify future growth.
- Work with Problem Solvers Rather Than Product Sellers
Smaller businesses require advice and technical education to navigate through an ever more complicated maze of technology options capable of promoting business growth and enhancing productivity. These companies do not need a network engineer who is motivated to resell a certain vendor's technology. IT consulting and product sales can lead to a scenario where the recommended
solution is designed around a profitable product instead of the true needs of a business. Progent eliminates these conflicts by offering only services rather than products. This enables Progent to align IT expertise with the real interests of customers.
What Makes Progent Unique from Other Service Organizations?
Progent is a Microsoft Partner consulting company and Progent's staff size, breadth of IT expertise, fine tuned remote support tools, and familiarity with enterprise networking allow offices to avoid the pitfalls associated with excessive dependence on smaller service organizations, independent freelance consultants, or limited internal resources.
