Benefits of Progent's Network Help for Offices in Downers Grove
Progent's remote technical help services enable your Downers Grove business to have the benefits of timely, world-class network support without the cost of maintaining an in-house IT organization. Your information system will derive greater strategic worth by becoming more available, efficient, and protected. Advantages to your business include:

  • Seamless remote expansion of your local support resources
    For most offices in Downers Grove and throughout Illinois, local network support providers, whether represented by independent consultants or an internal IT staff, can deal with typical network issues. On the other hand, serious problems can spring up when local support personnel are too busy or absent, and some trouble may stem from technology that is unfamiliar to your usual service technicians. In these cases, Progent's online support specialists give you a convenient, quick, and budget-friendly way to augment your regular resources and to pass on useful knowledge to improve your ability to deal with future issues in-house.

  • Reduced Reliance on Freelance Service Providers
    For network maintenance, smaller businesses commonly depend on individual freelance service providers. While freelance service people carry smaller overhead than larger service firms and can afford to charge marginally less, they are often overbooked, making it hard to respond rapidly to crisis situations. If a freelance service provider is occupied with another client, ill, on a trip, or in training, the absence of fallback help may require your company to go without help during an emergency. As your network grows, system unavailability and problems with critical applications are more expensive. The budget you thought you were saving on an independent can be consumed fast by lost productivity. Progent offers a reliable source of reserve service experts to make sure your network stays available.

  • Build a Solid Foundation for Seamless Growth
    Businesses often start with an information architecture created on a modest budget. Lacking a robust framework, band-aid repairs often get thrown onto an unstable foundation. As a network grows, reliability and scalability issues can impede the productivity of the business. These poorly built systems need careful analysis, intelligent long-term planning, and wide IT knowledge to evolve to a network infrastructure that can provide the solid foundation to meet current business demands and simplify downstream growth.

  • Work with Problem Solvers Rather Than Technology Resellers
    Smaller companies require guidance and technical training to navigate through an ever more complex maze of technology options capable of promoting business success and enhancing productivity. They hardly need a computer engineer who is trying to resell a certain vendor's technology. Network consulting and product sales can lead to a scenario where the proposed solution is built around a predetermined technology instead of the true requirements of a business. Progent eliminates these conflicts of interest by selling only services rather than products. This allows Progent to align IT consulting with the real interests of customers.

What Makes Progent Unique from Other Support Organizations?
Progent is a Microsoft Partner consulting firm and Progent's number of employees, range of technical expertise, fine tuned remote support software, and familiarity with corporate IT allow businesses to escape the limitations associated with exclusive dependence on smaller service firms, independent freelance service providers, or over-stretched in-house resources.

  • Value Pricing
    Progent's pricing policy is to bill for phone service and in-person help per minute. As a result, you are charged only for received services.

Also, Progent applies no minimum fee and requires no monthly commitment for services provided during normal business hours. Many support firms impose large minimum fees or charge for every fifteen minutes or longer. Progent's one-minute granularity eliminates large bills for quick fixes so you won't be tempted to allow minor problems to stay unaddressed.

  • Information Transfer
    Progent practices knowledge transfer from Progent's consultants to clients.

Companies who utilize familiar freelance consultants or who maintain internal IT personnel benefit when Progent transfers knowledge about critical technology and proven methodologies to make their IT environments more robust, protected, and efficient.
