Benefits of Progent's Network Help for Offices in Des Moines
Progent's online technical help services allow your Des Moines organization to enjoy the advantages of timely, enterprise-level network support without the expense of maintaining an in-house IT organization. Your information system will derive added business value by being more available, efficient, and secure. Advantages to your business include:

  • Seamless remote expansion of your local support resources
    With most companies in Des Moines and throughout Iowa, nearby computer support resources, whether represented by independent consultants or an in-house maintenance staff, can resolve the majority of network problems. On the other hand, serious problems sometimes strike when your regular support personnel are overstretched or absent, and some trouble may involve IT products that is beyond the scope of your local service technicians. In these instances, Progent's online service professionals provide a convenient, quick, and affordable way to augment your local help and to transfer valuable knowledge to increase your ability to deal with downstream issues locally.

  • Less Dependence on Individual Service Providers
    For network support, smaller companies commonly depend on individual freelance service providers. Although independent service people carry smaller internal costs than larger consulting companies and can afford to charge marginally less, they are occasionally overbooked, making it impossible to respond quickly to urgent situations. If an independent service provider is occupied with another client, sick, on a trip, or in training, the lack of backup personnel may require your company to go without assistance during an IT crisis. As your business grows, network downtime and trouble with vital applications become more costly. The budget you thought you were conserving on an independent can be consumed quickly by reduced productivity. Progent offers an on-call source of reserve service expertise to insure your IT system remains up and running.

  • Build a Scalable Basis for Seamless Expansion
    Organizations typically start with an information architecture created on a shoestring budget. Without a scalable framework, slap-dash fixes often get thrown onto a shaky foundation. When a company grows, reliability and scalability issues can hinder the productivity of the business. Such badly built systems need proper analysis, smart strategic planning, and broad-based IT expertise to upgrade to a network infrastructure that can deliver the solid foundation to handle vital business requirements and ease future expansion.

  • Interact with Solution Providers Rather Than Product Sellers
    Smaller offices require advice and technical training to negotiate an increasingly complicated maze of technology alternatives available for promoting business growth and enhancing productivity. They hardly need a computer engineer who is motivated to earn a commission on a specific vendor's products. Network support and product selling can result in a scenario where the recommended solution is built around a profitable product instead of the true requirements of a business. Progent eliminates these conflicts by selling only services instead of products. This enables Progent to match IT consulting with the real needs of customers.

How Is Progent Different from Other Support Organizations?
Progent is a Microsoft Certified Partner support company and Progent's head count, breadth of technical expertise, fine tuned remote support tools, and understanding of corporate IT enable businesses to avoid the pitfalls of excessive dependence on smaller service firms, independent freelance consultants, or limited internal IT help.
