Advantages of Progent's IT Support for Companies in Garland
Progent's online technical help services enable your Garland business to enjoy the benefits of timely, expert network support without the cost of maintaining an in-house IT organization. Your network will acquire added strategic worth by being increasingly reliable, efficient, and secure. Benefits to your business include:

  • Seamless virtual extension of your on-site IT resources
    For most companies in Garland or anywhere in Texas, local computer service resources, whether consisting of independent consultants or an in-house IT staff, can deal with typical network problems. However, serious problems can spring up when local resources are too busy or absent, and some trouble may be associated with technology that is beyond the scope of your local service technicians. In these instances, Progent's online support professionals offer an easy, quick, and economical way to augment your regular help and to pass on valuable knowledge to improve your capability to resolve future problems in-house.

  • Reduced Dependence on Freelance Consultants
    For network support, smaller businesses often depend on independent freelance consultants. Although freelance service people carry smaller internal costs than big consulting firms and can often charge lower rates, they are sometimes stretched too thin, making it hard to respond quickly to crisis situations. If a freelance service provider is occupied with another customer, ill, on vacation, or in training, the lack of backup personnel may force your company to go without help during an IT crisis. As your business expands, network downtime and problems with critical applications become more costly. The budget you thought you were saving on an independent can be consumed quickly by reduced productivity. Progent provides a ready source of backup support experts to insure your IT system is always up and running.

  • Build a Solid Basis for Seamless Growth
    Companies often begin with an information architecture implemented on a shoestring budget. Lacking a proper infrastructure, slap-dash fixes can get thrown on top of a weak foundation. When a network grows, stability and scalability problems can hinder the success of the organization. Such badly built systems need proper assessment, intelligent long-term planning, and wide IT knowledge to evolve to a network infrastructure able to provide the solid foundation to meet critical business demands and ease future growth.

  • Interact with Problem Solvers Rather Than Technology Vendors
    Smaller companies need guidance and technical training to navigate through an increasingly complex maze of product options available for accelerating business growth and enhancing efficiency. These companies hardly need a network engineer who is trying to earn a commission on a certain vendor's technology. IT support and product selling can result in a situation where the proposed solution is built around a profitable technology instead of the true requirements of a business. Progent avoids these dilemmas by selling just services instead of products. This allows Progent to match technical consulting with the best interests of clients.

What Makes Progent Different from Other Support Organizations?
Progent is a Microsoft Certified Partner consulting company and Progent's head count, breadth of technical knowledge, fine tuned support software, and familiarity with enterprise networking allow businesses to avoid the limitations associated with excessive dependence on smaller consulting firms, individual freelance service providers, or over-stretched in-house resources.
