Advantages of Progent's Network Help for Offices in Downers Grove Illinois
Progent's remote network troubleshooting services enable your Downers Grove organization to have the benefits of on-call, enterprise-grade network support without the expense of managing a full-time IT staff. Your network will derive added business value by becoming increasingly available, efficient, and secure. Advantages to your company include:
- Seamless virtual expansion of your local support resources
For most companies in Downers Grove Illinois, local network service resources, whether represented by outside consultants or a full-time IT staff, can deal with typical network problems. However, serious problems can spring up when local support personnel are too busy or unavailable, and some problems may be associated with technology that is beyond the scope of your usual support personnel. In these cases, Progent's online support specialists offer an easy, quick, and economical way to augment your regular help and to pass on valuable knowledge to improve your ability to resolve downstream problems locally.
- Reduced Reliance on Individual Service Providers
For IT support, smaller offices often depend on individual freelance consultants. While freelance service people have smaller internal costs than larger service firms and can often charge lower rates, they are sometimes overextended, making it impossible to respond quickly to crisis situations. If an independent service provider is busy with another client, ill, on vacation, or in training, the absence of backup personnel may force your business to wait for help during an emergency. As your company grows, system unavailability and trouble with vital software are more expensive. The budget you thought you were conserving on a freelancer can be eaten up quickly by reduced productivity. Progent provides a dependable source of reserve support experts to insure your IT system remains available.
- Build a Scalable Basis for Seamless Growth
Companies often begin with an IT architecture created on a modest budget. Without a proper framework, band-aid fixes can get thrown onto an unstable foundation. When a network grows, reliability and scalability issues can hinder the success of the organization. Such poorly designed environments require careful assessment, intelligent strategic planning, and wide technical expertise to evolve to a network architecture able to deliver the stable foundation to meet critical business requirements and simplify downstream growth.
- Work with Solution Providers Instead of Technology Resellers
Smaller companies need guidance and technical training to negotiate an ever more complex maze of product alternatives capable of promoting business growth and enhancing productivity. These companies do not need a computer engineer who is motivated to sell a certain vendor's technology. Network consulting and product sales can result in a scenario where the recommended
solution is built around a predetermined technology rather than the true requirements of a client. Progent eliminates these dilemmas by offering just services rather than products. This allows Progent to align technical expertise with the best interests of clients.
How Is Progent Unique from Other Service Firms?
Progent is a Microsoft Partner support company and Progent's staff size, range of IT experience, fine tuned support tools, and familiarity with enterprise networking enable businesses to avoid the limitations associated with excessive reliance on smaller service firms, individual freelance service providers, or over-stretched internal IT help.
