Your network will derive added strategic worth by becoming more available, efficient, and protected. Benefits to your business include:
- Convenient remote expansion of your on-site support resources
For most businesses in Grand Rapids and throughout Michigan, nearby network support providers, whether represented by independent consultants or an in-house maintenance staff, can handle the majority of network problems. However, serious problems may spring up when your regular resources are overstretched or absent, and some problems may stem from IT products that is beyond the scope of your onsite support technicians. In these instances, Progent's on-call service experts offer an easy, quick, and affordable solution to supplement your local resources and to pass on valuable knowledge to increase your capability to deal with downstream problems locally.
- Less Reliance on Individual Service Providers
For network support, smaller businesses commonly rely on independent freelance consultants. Although independent service people carry less internal costs than larger support companies and can afford to charge marginally less, they are often overbooked, making it difficult to respond quickly to crisis situations. If a freelance consultant is busy with another client, sick, on a trip, or in training, the lack of fallback personnel may require your business to go without help during an emergency. As your network grows, network unavailability and problems with critical software are more costly. The budget you thought you were conserving on a freelancer can be eaten up fast by lost productivity. Progent offers an on-call source of reserve support expertise to make sure your network stays available.
- Create a Scalable Foundation for Smooth Expansion
Businesses often start with an information architecture created on a modest budget. Without a scalable infrastructure, band-aid fixes can get thrown onto a shaky foundation. When a company grows, reliability and scalability problems can hinder the success of the organization. These poorly built systems need careful analysis, intelligent long-term planning, and wide technical expertise to evolve to a network infrastructure that can deliver the solid foundation to handle current business demands and facilitate future expansion.
- Interact with Problem Solvers Instead of Technology Vendors
Smaller businesses require advice and technical education to navigate through an increasingly complicated maze of technology options available for accelerating business growth and improving efficiency. These companies do not need a computer consultant who is motivated to resell a specific vendor's products. IT consulting and product selling can lead to a scenario where the recommended
solution is designed around a profitable 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 technical consulting with the best interests of clients.
What Makes Progent Different from Other Support Firms?
Progent is a Microsoft Certified Partner consulting firm and Progent's number of employees, depth of technical experience, fine tuned remote support software, and familiarity with enterprise networking enable businesses to escape the limitations of exclusive dependence on smaller service firms, individual freelance consultants, or limited internal IT help.
