Benefits of Progent's IT Support for Businesses in Des Moines
Progent's online network troubleshooting services enable your Des Moines business to enjoy the advantages of on-call, enterprise-class IT support without the cost of maintaining a full-time IT staff. Your information system will acquire added business value by becoming more reliable, efficient, and protected. Benefits to your business include:

  • Seamless remote extension of your on-site support resources
    With most organizations in Des Moines or anywhere in Iowa, nearby computer service providers, whether made up of independent consultants or a full-time maintenance staff, can resolve typical technical issues. However, serious problems may spring up when local support personnel are too busy or unavailable, and some trouble may stem from technology that is unfamiliar to your onsite support people. In these situations, Progent's on-call support professionals give you an easy, quick, and economical solution to augment your regular help and to convey valuable information to improve your capability to resolve future problems in-house.

  • Reduced Dependence on Freelance Service Providers
    For IT maintenance, smaller businesses commonly rely on individual freelance consultants. Although freelance consultants carry less internal costs than larger consulting organizations and can often charge marginally less, they are often stretched too thin, making it difficult to respond quickly to urgent situations. If an independent service provider is occupied with another customer, sick, on a trip, or in training, the lack of backup help may force your company to wait for help during an emergency. As your network expands, network downtime and problems with critical software are more expensive. The money you thought you were saving on an independent can be consumed fast by reduced productivity. Progent provides a dependable source of backup support expertise to insure your IT system remains up and running.

  • Create a Scalable Basis for Smooth Expansion
    Companies typically start with an information system implemented on a modest budget. Without a proper framework, slap-dash repairs can get thrown on top of a shaky foundation. As a network grows, stability and expandability problems can hinder the productivity of the organization. These poorly designed systems need careful assessment, smart strategic planning, and extensive technical expertise to upgrade to a system infrastructure that can offer the stable foundation to handle vital business requirements and ease future expansion.

  • Interact with Problem Solvers Instead of Technology Vendors
    Smaller offices need advice and technical training to navigate through an increasingly complicated array of technology options available for accelerating business success and improving productivity. Businesses do not need a computer engineer who is trying to sell a certain vendor's products. Network support and product selling can result in a situation where the recommended solution is built around a profitable technology instead of the true requirements of a business. Progent avoids these dilemmas by selling only services instead of products. This enables Progent to align IT consulting with the real needs of clients.

What Makes Progent Unique from Other Service Firms?
Progent is a Microsoft Certified Partner support company and Progent's staff size, depth of IT experience, fine tuned support tools, and understanding of enterprise networking allow businesses to avoid the limitations of excessive reliance on smaller service organizations, individual freelance service providers, or limited in-house resources.
