Benefits of Progent's Network Help for Organizations in Detroit
Progent's remote network troubleshooting services enable your Detroit business to experience the benefits of immediate, enterprise-class network support without the cost of maintaining a full-time IT staff. Your network will acquire added business value by becoming more available, efficient, and protected. Benefits to your company include:

  • Convenient virtual expansion of your local support resources
    For most offices in Detroit and throughout Michigan, nearby network support resources, whether made up of independent consultants or a full-time maintenance staff, can handle the majority of technical problems. However, serious problems can occur when your regular resources are overstretched or absent, and some trouble may stem from IT products that is beyond the scope of your usual support personnel. In these cases, Progent's online service professionals offer an easy, quick, and budget-friendly solution to augment your regular resources and to transfer valuable information to increase your capability to deal with downstream problems locally.

  • Reduced Dependence on Freelance Consultants
    For network support, smaller organizations commonly depend on independent freelance service providers. Although freelance service people have smaller overhead than larger consulting organizations and can often charge lower rates, they are often stretched too thin, making it impossible to respond rapidly to crisis situations. If a freelance consultant is occupied with another customer, ill, on a trip, or in class, the lack of reserve help may force your company to wait for assistance during an emergency. As your company expands, network unavailability and problems with vital software are more expensive. The budget you thought you were conserving on a freelancer can be consumed fast by reduced productivity. Progent provides a dependable source of backup service experts to make sure your IT system is always up and running.

  • Build a Solid Foundation for Seamless Growth
    Companies typically begin with an IT architecture implemented on a shoestring budget. Lacking a proper infrastructure, band-aid repairs often get thrown onto a shaky foundation. When a network grows, reliability and scalability problems can hinder the success of the organization. These badly designed environments need proper analysis, intelligent long-term planning, and extensive technical expertise to upgrade to a network architecture that can provide the solid foundation to meet vital business demands and simplify downstream expansion.

  • Interact with Solution Providers Instead of Technology Resellers
    Smaller businesses need advice and technical training to navigate through an increasingly complex maze of product options available for accelerating business success and improving productivity. These companies do not need a computer consultant who is motivated to resell a specific vendor's products. IT consulting and product selling can result in a situation where the recommended solution is built around a predetermined technology instead of the genuine requirements of a business. Progent eliminates these conflicts by offering just services instead of products. This enables Progent to align technical expertise with the best needs of clients.

How Is Progent Different from Other Support Firms?
Progent is a Microsoft Partner support company and Progent's head count, depth of IT knowledge, refined support software, and familiarity with corporate IT enable companies to escape the pitfalls associated with exclusive dependence on smaller service firms, individual freelance service providers, or limited in-house resources.

  • Full Records of IT Services
