Advantages of Progent's IT Support for Organizations in Fort Lauderdale
Progent's remote support services allow your Fort Lauderdale organization to enjoy the benefits of timely, expert network support without the expense of maintaining an in-house IT organization. Your network will acquire added strategic value by being increasingly available, productive, and protected. Benefits to your business include:

  • Seamless virtual extension of your local support resources
    For most organizations in Fort Lauderdale and throughout Florida, local computer service providers, whether made up of freelance consultants or a full-time IT staff, can solve the majority of network problems. On the other hand, serious problems may strike when local support personnel are too busy or absent, and some problems may stem from technology that is beyond the scope of your local support technicians. In these instances, Progent's online service professionals offer an easy, fast, and budget-friendly way to supplement your local resources and to convey valuable information to improve your ability to resolve future problems in-house.

  • Reduced Reliance on Freelance Consultants
    For IT support, smaller offices commonly depend on independent freelance service providers. While independent service people carry less internal costs than big consulting companies and can afford to charge lower rates, they are occasionally overextended, making it hard to respond rapidly to urgent situations. If an independent service provider is occupied with another client, sick, on a trip, or in training, the lack of fallback personnel may require your company to wait for assistance during an emergency. As your company grows, system unavailability and problems with critical software become more expensive. The budget you thought you were saving on a freelancer can be consumed fast by reduced productivity. Progent offers a dependable source of reserve service experts to make sure your network stays up and running.

  • Create a Scalable Basis for Smooth Expansion
    Companies typically start with an information architecture implemented on a modest budget. Without a scalable infrastructure, slap-dash repairs can get thrown on top of a weak foundation. As a network grows, stability and scalability problems can impede the success of the organization. Such badly built systems require careful analysis, smart strategic planning, and broad-based technical expertise to evolve to a system infrastructure able to offer the solid foundation to handle vital business requirements and facilitate future expansion.

  • Work with Problem Solvers Rather Than Product Vendors
    Smaller organizations need advice and technical training to navigate through an ever more complex maze of product alternatives capable of accelerating business success and enhancing productivity. Businesses do not need a network consultant who is trying to sell a specific vendor's technology. Network consulting and product selling can lead to a situation where the recommended solution is designed around a predetermined technology instead of the genuine requirements of a client. Progent eliminates these dilemmas by selling just services rather than products. This enables Progent to match IT consulting with the real interests of clients.

How Is Progent Different from Other Support Firms?
Progent is a Microsoft Partner consulting firm and Progent's staff size, breadth of IT expertise, fine tuned remote support tools, and understanding of enterprise networking enable businesses to escape the pitfalls associated with excessive reliance on smaller service organizations, individual freelance service providers, or limited in-house IT help.
