Advantages of Progent's Network Help for Organizations in Grand Rapids
Progent's online network troubleshooting services enable your Grand Rapids business to have the advantages of timely, enterprise-grade IT support without the expense of managing an in-house IT staff. Your information system will acquire greater strategic worth by becoming more reliable, efficient, and secure. Advantages to your business include:
- Seamless virtual expansion of your local support resources
With most businesses in Grand Rapids or anywhere in Michigan, local network support providers, whether represented by outside consultants or an internal maintenance staff, can handle the majority of network problems. However, major troubles sometimes spring up when your regular resources are too busy or unavailable, and some problems may be associated with technology that is unfamiliar to your local service personnel. In these situations, Progent's online support experts offer an easy, fast, and economical way to augment your regular resources and to transfer valuable information to improve your ability to resolve downstream problems locally.
- Reduced Dependence on Freelance Consultants
For IT maintenance, smaller offices commonly rely on independent freelance service providers. While freelance consultants carry less overhead than big support firms and can afford to charge marginally less, they are sometimes stretched too thin, making it difficult to respond rapidly to crisis situations. If a freelance service provider is occupied with another client, sick, on vacation, or in training, the lack of fallback help may force your business to go without assistance during an emergency. As your business grows, network downtime and trouble with critical applications are more costly. The money you thought you were saving on an independent can be consumed quickly by lost productivity. Progent provides a dependable source of reserve service experts to insure your IT system remains available.
- Create a Scalable Foundation for Smooth Growth
Companies often begin with an information architecture implemented on a shoestring budget. Lacking a robust infrastructure, slap-dash fixes often get piled onto an unstable foundation. When a network grows, stability and scalability issues can hinder the success of the organization. These badly designed environments need careful analysis, smart long-term planning, and broad-based IT expertise to upgrade to a system architecture that can deliver the stable foundation to handle current business requirements and facilitate downstream growth.
- Work with Problem Solvers Instead of Technology Sellers
Smaller offices require advice and technical training to navigate through an increasingly complex array of product alternatives available for accelerating business success and improving efficiency. Businesses hardly need a computer engineer who is motivated to earn a commission on a specific vendor's technology. Network support and product selling can result in a scenario where the recommended
solution is built around a predetermined product instead of the genuine needs of a business. Progent eliminates these conflicts of interest by selling just services rather than products. This allows Progent to align technical expertise with the best needs of clients.
How Is Progent Different from Other Service Firms?
Progent is a Microsoft Partner support firm and Progent's number of employees, depth of technical experience, fine tuned remote support tools, and familiarity with enterprise networking enable businesses to avoid the pitfalls associated with excessive reliance on smaller service organizations, independent freelance service providers, or limited in-house IT help.
Progent adds value by providing:
