Advantages of Progent's Network Help for Companies in Des Moines
Progent's online technical help services allow your Des Moines company to experience the advantages of on-call, enterprise-grade IT support without the cost of maintaining an in-house IT organization. Your information system will derive added strategic worth by becoming increasingly available, efficient, and secure. Benefits to your business include:

  • Convenient remote extension of your local support resources
    With most companies in Des Moines and throughout Iowa, local computer support resources, whether represented by outside consultants or an internal IT staff, can resolve typical network issues. However, IT crises can occur when local support personnel are too busy or unavailable, and some problems may stem from IT products that is beyond the scope of your local support people. In these instances, Progent's on-call service specialists provide a convenient, fast, and economical way to supplement your local resources and to transfer useful information to increase your ability to resolve future issues in-house.

  • Reduced Dependence on Freelance Consultants
    For IT maintenance, smaller businesses often rely on independent freelance service providers. Although independent service people carry less internal costs than big consulting companies and can often charge lower rates, they are often overbooked, making it impossible to respond quickly to urgent situations. If a freelance service provider is busy with another client, sick, on vacation, or in class, the lack of reserve help may require your company to go without help during an IT crisis. As your business grows, system downtime and problems with critical applications are more expensive. The money you thought you were conserving on an independent can be eaten up fast by reduced productivity. Progent offers a reliable source of reserve service experts to make sure your IT system stays available.

  • Create a Solid Foundation for Smooth Expansion
    Companies typically start with an information architecture implemented on a shoestring budget. Lacking a strong infrastructure, band-aid repairs can get piled on top of a weak foundation. When a network grows, stability and scalability problems can impede the success of the organization. Such badly built systems require proper analysis, smart long-term planning, and extensive technical expertise to evolve to a network architecture able to provide the solid foundation to meet critical business requirements and facilitate future growth.

  • Work with Problem Solvers Rather Than Product Vendors
    Smaller businesses require guidance and technical training to negotiate an increasingly complicated maze of product alternatives available for accelerating business growth and improving efficiency. They hardly need a network consultant who is motivated to sell a certain vendor's products. Network consulting and product selling can result in a scenario where the proposed solution is built around a predetermined technology rather than the genuine requirements of a business. Progent eliminates these dilemmas by selling only services instead of products. This allows Progent to match technical consulting with the real interests of clients.

Progent is a Microsoft Certified Partner support company and Progent's staff size, breadth of technical knowledge, refined support tools, and familiarity with corporate IT allow companies to escape the limitations associated with exclusive dependence on smaller consulting firms, independent freelance service providers, or over-stretched internal IT help.
