Advantages of Progent's IT Support for Businesses in Houston
Progent's remote IT consulting services allow your Houston company to have the advantages of immediate, enterprise-grade network support without the expense of managing a full-time IT organization. Your information system will acquire greater strategic value by becoming more available, productive, and protected. Advantages to your company include:
- Seamless virtual expansion of your local IT resources
For most companies in Houston or anywhere in Texas, local computer support providers, whether represented by outside consultants or a full-time IT staff, can take care of typical network issues. However, IT crises can occur when your regular support personnel are overstretched or absent, and some problems may involve technology that is unfamiliar to your onsite support personnel. In these cases, Progent's on-call support professionals offer an easy, fast, and economical way to supplement your regular resources and to pass on useful knowledge to improve your capability to resolve future issues in-house.
- Less Reliance on Freelance Consultants
For network maintenance, smaller companies commonly depend on individual freelance service providers. While independent consultants have less internal costs than big support companies and can often charge marginally less, they are sometimes stretched too thin, making it difficult to respond rapidly to crisis situations. If a freelance consultant is occupied with another customer, ill, on a trip, or in training, the lack of backup help may force your company to wait for help during an emergency. As your company expands, network unavailability and problems with vital applications become more expensive. The money you thought you were saving on an independent can be eaten up fast by reduced productivity. Progent offers a reliable source of reserve service expertise to insure your IT system remains up and running.
- Build a Scalable Foundation for Smooth Expansion
Companies often begin with an IT system created on a shoestring budget. Without a robust infrastructure, band-aid fixes often get thrown on top of an unstable foundation. As a network grows, stability and expandability issues can impede the productivity of the business. Such badly designed systems require proper assessment, smart strategic planning, and broad-based IT expertise to evolve to a system architecture that can deliver the solid foundation to handle current business demands and simplify downstream expansion.
- Interact with Problem Solvers Instead of Technology Sellers
Smaller companies require guidance and technical education to negotiate an increasingly complicated maze of technology options capable of accelerating business growth and enhancing productivity. They do not need a network engineer who is attempting to earn a commission on a certain vendor's products. IT support and product sales can lead to a scenario where the proposed
solution is designed around a predetermined product instead of the genuine requirements of a client. Progent avoids these conflicts of interest by offering just services instead of products. This allows Progent to align technical consulting with the best interests of clients.
What Makes Progent Unique from Other Support Organizations?
Progent is a Microsoft Certified Partner support company and Progent's head count, range of IT background, refined support software, and understanding of enterprise networking enable companies to escape the limitations of exclusive dependence on smaller service firms, independent freelance service providers, or limited internal IT help.
Progent adds value by providing:
