Benefits of Progent's IT Support for Organizations in Fort Wayne
Progent's online support services allow your Fort Wayne business to realize the advantages of timely, enterprise-grade IT support without the cost of managing a full-time IT staff. Your network will acquire greater business worth by becoming increasingly reliable, efficient, and protected. Advantages to your business include:

  • Convenient virtual expansion of your on-site support resources
    With most businesses in Fort Wayne and throughout Indiana, local network service providers, whether consisting of independent consultants or an internal maintenance staff, can handle typical technical issues. On the other hand, IT crises may occur when local resources are too busy or absent, and some problems may be associated with technology that is unfamiliar to your usual service technicians. In these instances, Progent's online support experts offer a convenient, fast, and affordable solution to augment your regular help and to convey valuable information to increase your ability to resolve downstream problems in-house.

  • Reduced Reliance on Individual Service Providers
    For IT maintenance, smaller companies often depend on independent freelance service providers. Although independent service people have less overhead than larger service organizations and can often charge marginally less, they are often overextended, making it impossible to respond rapidly to crisis situations. If a freelance 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 help during an emergency. As your company grows, system downtime and problems with critical software become more costly. The budget you thought you were saving on a freelancer can be eaten up fast by lost productivity. Progent offers a ready source of backup service expertise to insure your IT system stays up and running.

  • Create a Solid Basis for Seamless Expansion
    Organizations often begin with an IT architecture implemented on a shoestring budget. Without a scalable framework, band-aid fixes often get thrown on top of a weak foundation. When a company grows, reliability and scalability issues can hinder the success of the business. These badly designed environments need careful analysis, smart long-term planning, and extensive IT expertise to evolve to a network architecture that can provide the solid foundation to handle critical business requirements and ease downstream growth.

  • Interact with Problem Solvers Rather Than Product Sellers
    Smaller businesses need guidance and technical training to negotiate an ever more complex maze of product alternatives capable of promoting business success and improving productivity. These companies do not need a computer consultant who is attempting to resell a certain vendor's technology. Network consulting and product selling can result in a situation where the recommended solution is built around a profitable technology instead of the genuine needs of a business. Progent avoids these conflicts by offering only services rather than products. This enables Progent to align technical consulting with the best needs of customers.

How Is Progent Unique from Other Service Firms?
Progent is a Microsoft Certified Partner support company and Progent's number of employees, depth of technical expertise, refined remote support tools, and understanding of corporate IT allow offices to avoid the pitfalls of exclusive dependence on smaller consulting organizations, individual freelance consultants, or limited in-house resources.

  • Information Transfer
    Progent practices knowledge transfer from Progent's consultants to customers. By teaching customers to deal with problems that are within their comfort zone, Progent can concentrate on offering high-value skills where Progent has little competition. Businesses who work with trusted freelance service providers or who maintain in-house support personnel benefit when Progent transfers information about critical technology and tested processes to make their IT environments more reliable, secure, and productive.
