Advantages of Progent's IT Support for Offices in Houston
Progent's online support services allow your Houston business to experience the benefits of immediate, enterprise-class IT support without the cost of managing a full-time IT staff. Your network will derive added business worth by being more available, productive, and secure. Benefits to your company include:

  • Convenient remote expansion of your on-site support resources
    For most organizations in Houston and throughout Texas, nearby network service resources, whether consisting of outside consultants or a full-time maintenance staff, can solve typical technical problems. On the other hand, serious problems may occur when local resources are too busy or absent, and some trouble may stem from IT products that is beyond the scope of your local support personnel. In these cases, Progent's on-call support professionals provide a convenient, fast, and budget-friendly way to augment your local resources and to transfer useful information to increase your capability to handle future problems in-house.

  • Less Dependence on Freelance Consultants
    For network maintenance, smaller businesses often rely on independent freelance consultants. Although freelance consultants have less overhead than big support organizations and can often charge lower rates, they are often overbooked, making it impossible to respond rapidly to crisis situations. If a freelance consultant is occupied with another client, sick, on a trip, or in class, the lack of reserve help may require your company to go without assistance during an IT crisis. As your network grows, system downtime and trouble with critical software are more expensive. The budget you thought you were saving on an independent can be eaten up fast by lost productivity. Progent offers an on-call source of backup service expertise to make sure your network stays available.

  • Create a Solid Foundation for Seamless Expansion
    Businesses often begin with an IT system created on a shoestring budget. Without a strong infrastructure, slap-dash repairs often get thrown onto a shaky foundation. As a company grows, stability and expandability problems can hinder the success of the business. These poorly built systems need careful assessment, intelligent long-term planning, and wide IT knowledge to evolve to a network architecture able to offer the solid foundation to handle vital business requirements and facilitate downstream growth.

  • Work with Problem Solvers Rather Than Product Vendors
    Smaller businesses need advice and technical training to negotiate an ever more complex array of technology alternatives capable of promoting business success and enhancing productivity. They hardly need a computer engineer who is motivated to sell a certain vendor's products. Network support and product selling can lead to a situation where the recommended solution is built around a predetermined technology instead of the true requirements of a business. Progent eliminates these conflicts of interest by offering only services instead of products. This enables Progent to match IT consulting with the real needs of clients.

How Is Progent Different from Other Service Firms?
Progent is a Microsoft Certified Partner support company and Progent's head count, breadth of IT background, refined remote support software, and understanding of enterprise networking enable companies to escape the pitfalls associated with excessive dependence on smaller service firms, individual freelance consultants, or over-stretched in-house IT help.
