Advantages of Progent's IT Support for Organizations in Garland
Progent's online technical help services allow your Garland business to enjoy the benefits of on-call, enterprise-grade IT support without the cost of managing an in-house IT organization. Your network will derive added business worth by being more reliable, productive, and protected. Benefits to your business include:

  • Seamless virtual extension of your on-site IT resources
    For most organizations in Garland or anywhere in Texas, local network support providers, whether consisting of freelance consultants or an in-house IT staff, can deal with typical network issues. On the other hand, major troubles might strike when local resources are overstretched or unavailable, and some trouble may be associated with IT products that is unfamiliar to your usual support personnel. In these cases, Progent's on-call support specialists offer an easy, fast, and economical way to supplement your local help and to transfer valuable information to improve your capability to handle future issues locally.

  • Less Dependence on Freelance Consultants
    For network maintenance, smaller offices commonly depend on individual freelance consultants. Although freelance consultants carry less internal costs than big support firms and can afford to charge lower rates, they are often stretched too thin, making it difficult to respond quickly to urgent situations. If an independent consultant is occupied with another client, ill, on a trip, or in training, the absence of reserve personnel may force your company to go without help during an IT crisis. As your company expands, network downtime and trouble with critical applications become more costly. The budget you thought you were conserving on an independent can be eaten up quickly by lost productivity. Progent offers a dependable source of reserve service experts to make sure your network stays up and running.

  • Build a Solid Foundation for Smooth Growth
    Businesses often start with an information system created on a shoestring budget. Lacking a proper framework, slap-dash fixes can get thrown onto a weak foundation. As a company grows, stability and scalability issues can hinder the productivity of the organization. Such poorly designed systems need careful analysis, intelligent long-term planning, and broad-based IT expertise to upgrade to a network infrastructure able to deliver the solid foundation to meet critical business demands and ease future expansion.

  • Interact with Problem Solvers Rather Than Technology Sellers
    Smaller offices require advice and technical education to negotiate an increasingly complex maze of product options capable of promoting business success and improving efficiency. Businesses do not need a network engineer who is trying to resell a specific vendor's technology. IT consulting and product selling can lead to a scenario where the recommended solution is designed around a profitable product rather than the genuine requirements of a client. Progent eliminates these conflicts of interest by offering just services instead of products. This allows Progent to match technical consulting with the best interests of clients.

How Is Progent Unique from Other Service Organizations?
Progent is a Microsoft Partner consulting company and Progent's staff size, breadth of IT background, refined support software, and understanding of enterprise networking enable businesses to avoid the pitfalls of exclusive reliance on smaller service firms, independent freelance service providers, or limited internal resources.

  • Full Documentation of IT Services
    Progent has created a comprehensive support reporting system that stores and organizes complete documentation for all billed services. Unlike some freelance consultants or small support organizations who provide minimal documentation or details of services done, every service provided by Progent is tracked by full documentation. Every Progent staff member has use of the service documentation sent by each consultant to every customer. The practice of documenting and archiving service activity results in more efficient support and eliminates a slew of typical misfortunes such as when a support client is virtually held hostage to a consultant who wonít release vital service information.

  • Remote Server Monitoring with MS System Center Operations Manager
    Progent is one of the few consulting firms to offer 24x7 network monitoring services based on Microsoft Operations Manager.
