Benefits of Progent's Network Help for Companies in Downers Grove
Progent's remote network troubleshooting services enable your Downers Grove company to have the benefits of immediate, enterprise-grade IT support without the expense of managing a full-time IT staff. Your information system will derive added strategic value by being more available, productive, and secure. Benefits to your company include:

  • Seamless remote expansion of your local support resources
    With most companies in Downers Grove or anywhere in Illinois, nearby computer service resources, whether consisting of outside consultants or an internal maintenance staff, can solve typical technical issues. However, major troubles may occur when local support personnel are overstretched or unavailable, and some problems may involve IT products that is beyond the scope of your onsite service people. In these instances, Progent's on-call support specialists provide a convenient, quick, and affordable solution to supplement your regular resources and to pass on useful information to increase your capability to handle downstream problems locally.

  • Reduced Reliance on Individual Consultants
    For network support, smaller offices often depend on independent freelance consultants. Although independent consultants carry less internal costs than big service firms and can afford to charge marginally less, they are occasionally stretched too thin, making it impossible to respond quickly to urgent situations. If a freelance consultant is busy with another customer, sick, on vacation, or in class, the absence of fallback help may force your company to wait for help during an IT crisis. As your network grows, system unavailability and problems with critical software are more expensive. The money you thought you were saving on a freelancer can be eaten up quickly by lost productivity. Progent offers a ready source of reserve service expertise to make sure your IT system remains available.

  • Create a Scalable Basis for Smooth Expansion
    Companies typically start with an information system created on a shoestring budget. Without a strong framework, slap-dash repairs can get piled on top of an unstable foundation. When a network grows, reliability and expandability issues can hinder the success of the organization. Such badly designed systems need careful assessment, smart strategic planning, and wide technical knowledge to upgrade to a system infrastructure able to provide the solid foundation to handle current business requirements and facilitate downstream growth.

  • Interact with Problem Solvers Rather Than Product Vendors
    Smaller businesses require advice and technical training to navigate through an increasingly complex array of technology options available for accelerating business success and improving productivity. Businesses hardly need a computer consultant who is trying to earn a commission on a certain vendor's products. IT consulting and product sales can lead to a scenario where the proposed solution is built around a predetermined technology rather than the true needs of a business. Progent avoids these conflicts of interest by offering only services rather than products. This enables Progent to match technical expertise with the real interests of customers.

How Is Progent Different from Other Service Organizations?
Progent is a Microsoft Partner support company and Progent's number of employees, depth of IT expertise, fine tuned remote support software, and familiarity with enterprise networking enable businesses to avoid the pitfalls associated with excessive dependence on smaller consulting organizations, independent freelance consultants, or limited internal IT help.
