Benefits of Progent's Network Help for Offices in Houston
Progent's online support services allow your Houston organization to experience the benefits of timely, expert network support without the cost of managing a full-time IT staff. Your information system will derive greater strategic value by being increasingly reliable, efficient, and secure. Benefits to your company include:

  • Seamless virtual expansion of your local IT resources
    With most businesses in Houston and throughout Texas, local network support providers, whether represented by freelance consultants or an internal IT staff, can resolve the majority of network issues. On the other hand, IT crises can strike when local support personnel are too busy or unavailable, and some trouble may stem from IT products that is unfamiliar to your usual support personnel. In these cases, Progent's on-call support professionals offer a convenient, quick, and budget-friendly solution to augment your regular resources and to transfer useful information to improve your capability to handle downstream issues in-house.

  • Less Dependence on Individual Service Providers
    For network support, smaller organizations commonly rely on independent freelance service providers. Although freelance service people carry less internal costs than larger service firms and can afford to charge lower rates, they are often overextended, making it difficult to respond rapidly to urgent situations. If an independent consultant is busy with another customer, sick, on a trip, or in class, the lack of backup personnel may require your company to go without help during an emergency. As your company expands, system downtime and trouble with vital software become more costly. The budget you thought you were conserving on a freelancer can be eaten up quickly by lost productivity. Progent offers a dependable source of backup service experts to make sure your IT system stays available.

  • Create a Solid Basis for Seamless Expansion
    Organizations often begin with an IT system implemented on a modest budget. Lacking a scalable framework, slap-dash fixes often get thrown on top of a shaky foundation. When a network grows, stability and expandability issues can hinder the success of the organization. These badly designed environments require careful assessment, intelligent strategic planning, and extensive IT expertise to evolve to a network infrastructure able to offer the stable foundation to handle critical business demands and facilitate downstream growth.

  • Work with Solution Providers Rather Than Product Resellers
    Smaller companies require guidance and technical training to navigate through an increasingly complicated array of product alternatives available for accelerating business success and enhancing productivity. They do not need a computer consultant who is attempting to sell a specific vendor's products. Network consulting and product selling can result in a scenario where the recommended solution is designed around a predetermined product rather than the genuine requirements of a business. Progent eliminates these conflicts by selling only services rather than products. This enables Progent to align technical consulting with the real interests of clients.

What Makes Progent Different from Other Service Organizations?
Progent is a Microsoft Partner consulting firm and Progent's head count, breadth of IT expertise, refined support tools, and understanding of corporate IT allow companies to avoid the pitfalls associated with exclusive reliance on smaller consulting firms, individual freelance consultants, or limited internal resources.
