Advantages of Progent's Network Help for Companies in Detroit
Progent's remote network troubleshooting services enable your Detroit business to experience the benefits of immediate, enterprise-level IT support without the expense of maintaining an in-house IT staff. Your network will acquire greater business value by being increasingly reliable, efficient, and secure. Advantages to your company include:

  • Seamless virtual expansion of your local support resources
    For most businesses in Detroit and throughout Michigan, nearby computer service providers, whether consisting of freelance consultants or an in-house maintenance staff, can take care of the majority of network problems. On the other hand, IT crises might strike when your regular support personnel are overstretched or absent, and some problems may stem from IT products that is unfamiliar to your local support technicians. In these situations, Progent's on-call support professionals give you a convenient, quick, and budget-friendly solution to augment your regular resources and to pass on valuable information to increase your capability to resolve downstream issues in-house.

  • Less Reliance on Freelance Service Providers
    For IT support, smaller offices commonly depend on individual freelance service providers. Although freelance service people have smaller overhead than larger consulting firms and can afford to charge lower rates, they are sometimes overbooked, making it impossible to respond quickly to crisis situations. If a freelance service provider is occupied with another customer, ill, on vacation, or in class, the absence of backup help may force your company to wait for help during an IT crisis. As your company grows, system unavailability and problems with critical applications become more costly. The money you thought you were conserving on an independent can be eaten up quickly by lost productivity. Progent offers an on-call source of reserve service experts to insure your IT system remains up and running.

  • Build a Scalable Basis for Seamless Expansion
    Organizations typically start with an IT system created on a shoestring budget. Without a strong infrastructure, slap-dash fixes often get thrown on top of an unstable foundation. When a network grows, stability and expandability problems can hinder the success of the business. Such badly designed environments need proper assessment, intelligent long-term planning, and broad-based technical expertise to evolve to a network infrastructure able to provide the stable foundation to handle vital business requirements and facilitate future growth.

  • Work with Problem Solvers Rather Than Product Vendors
    Smaller businesses need advice and technical education to negotiate an increasingly complex maze of product options available for accelerating business growth and enhancing productivity. They hardly need a network consultant who is trying to sell a certain vendor's technology. Network consulting and product selling can lead to a scenario where the proposed solution is built around a predetermined product rather than the true requirements of a client. Progent avoids these conflicts of interest by selling only services rather than products. This enables Progent to match IT consulting with the best interests of clients.

How Is Progent Different from Other Support Organizations?
Progent is a Microsoft Partner consulting firm and Progent's number of employees, range of technical knowledge, fine tuned support tools, and understanding of enterprise networking enable businesses to escape the pitfalls associated with exclusive dependence on smaller service organizations, independent freelance consultants, or over-stretched in-house resources.
