Benefits of Progent's Network Help for Businesses in Downers Grove Illinois
Progent's online network troubleshooting services enable your Downers Grove company to experience the advantages of immediate, world-class network support without the cost of maintaining an in-house IT staff. Your network will acquire greater business worth by becoming increasingly available, productive, and secure. Benefits to your company include:
- Convenient remote extension of your local support resources
With most offices in Downers Grove Illinois, nearby computer support resources, whether made up of outside consultants or an internal IT staff, can handle the majority of network problems. On the other hand, serious problems might strike when your regular support personnel are too busy or unavailable, and some trouble may be associated with IT products that is unfamiliar to your onsite service people. In these cases, Progent's online service experts offer an easy, fast, and economical solution to supplement your local resources and to pass on useful knowledge to increase your capability to handle future issues in-house.
- Reduced Reliance on Freelance Consultants
For network support, smaller organizations often depend on individual freelance consultants. Although independent consultants have less overhead than big service companies and can often charge marginally less, they are sometimes overextended, making it difficult to respond rapidly to urgent situations. If an independent consultant is busy with another client, ill, on a trip, or in class, the lack of backup personnel may force your company to wait for assistance during an IT crisis. As your business expands, network downtime and trouble with critical applications become more costly. The budget you thought you were saving on an independent can be consumed fast by lost productivity. Progent provides a ready source of backup service expertise to make sure your IT system stays available.
- Build a Solid Foundation for Seamless Growth
Businesses often begin with an information architecture implemented on a modest budget. Lacking a strong framework, slap-dash fixes often get piled on top of an unstable foundation. When a company grows, stability and expandability problems can hinder the success of the organization. These badly designed systems require careful analysis, intelligent long-term planning, and extensive technical knowledge to evolve to a system infrastructure that can provide the stable foundation to handle critical business demands and ease downstream expansion.
- Work with Problem Solvers Instead of Product Vendors
Smaller companies need guidance and technical education to navigate through an increasingly complicated array of technology options available for accelerating business growth and enhancing efficiency. They do not need a network consultant who is motivated to sell a certain vendor's products. IT consulting and product selling can lead to a situation where the proposed
solution is built around a predetermined product rather than the genuine requirements of a business. Progent eliminates these conflicts of interest by offering only services rather than products. This allows Progent to match technical consulting with the best needs of clients.
How Is Progent Different from Other Service Firms?
Progent is a Microsoft Certified Partner consulting firm and Progent's number of employees, depth of technical experience, refined remote support tools, and familiarity with enterprise networking allow offices to escape the pitfalls associated with excessive dependence on smaller service firms, independent freelance service providers, or limited in-house resources.
Progent adds value by providing:
