Benefits of Progent's Network Help for Offices in Edmonton Alberta
Progent's online technical help services allow your Edmonton business to experience the advantages of immediate, enterprise-level IT support without the expense of maintaining an in-house IT staff. Your network will acquire greater business value by becoming increasingly available, productive, and protected. Advantages to your company include:
- Convenient virtual extension of your on-site support resources
For most businesses in Edmonton Alberta, nearby computer support providers, whether represented by freelance consultants or an internal maintenance staff, can handle the majority of technical issues. On the other hand, serious problems can spring up when your regular support personnel are too busy or absent, and some trouble may be associated with technology that is beyond the scope of your local service people. In these cases, Progent's on-call support specialists provide an easy, quick, and economical way to augment your local resources and to transfer valuable knowledge to increase your capability to handle future problems in-house.
- Reduced Reliance on Freelance Service Providers
For IT support, smaller businesses commonly depend on independent freelance service providers. Although independent service people carry smaller overhead than big consulting organizations and can afford to charge lower rates, they are sometimes overextended, making it hard to respond rapidly to crisis situations. If an independent consultant is busy with another client, sick, on a trip, or in training, the lack of reserve help may require your business to wait for assistance during an IT crisis. As your network grows, network downtime and trouble with critical software become more expensive. The money you thought you were saving on an independent can be consumed fast by reduced productivity. Progent provides a ready source of reserve support expertise to make sure your network stays available.
- Create a Solid Basis for Seamless Expansion
Companies often begin with an IT architecture implemented on a shoestring budget. Without a proper infrastructure, band-aid repairs often get thrown on top of a shaky foundation. As a network grows, stability and scalability problems can hinder the productivity of the business. These poorly built environments need proper analysis, smart long-term planning, and wide technical knowledge to evolve to a network infrastructure that can deliver the stable foundation to handle critical business demands and simplify future growth.
- Interact with Solution Providers Rather Than Technology Sellers
Smaller companies need guidance and technical training to navigate through an increasingly complicated array of product options available for promoting business growth and enhancing efficiency. These companies hardly need a computer engineer who is trying to resell a certain vendor's technology. Network consulting and product selling can result in a scenario where the proposed
solution is designed around a profitable technology rather than the true needs of a business. Progent avoids these conflicts by offering just services rather than products. This allows Progent to match technical consulting with the best interests of customers.
What Makes Progent Different from Other Support Firms?
Progent is a Microsoft Partner support company and Progent's head count, breadth of IT knowledge, fine tuned support tools, and understanding of enterprise networking enable offices to avoid the limitations associated with exclusive dependence on smaller consulting organizations, individual freelance service providers, or over-stretched internal IT help.
Progent stands out by offering:
