Advantages of Progent's IT Support for Organizations in Huntsville
Progent's remote IT consulting services enable your Huntsville organization to enjoy the advantages of on-call, enterprise-class IT support without the cost of maintaining a full-time IT staff. Your information system will derive added strategic value by being increasingly reliable, productive, and secure. Benefits to your company include:

  • Seamless virtual expansion of your local support resources
    With most companies in Huntsville and throughout Alabama, nearby network service resources, whether consisting of freelance consultants or an internal maintenance staff, can take care of the majority of technical problems. On the other hand, major troubles sometimes occur when your regular resources are too busy or unavailable, and some problems may stem from technology that is unfamiliar to your local service people. In these instances, Progent's online support specialists give you a convenient, quick, and economical way to supplement your local resources and to transfer useful information to increase your capability to handle downstream problems in-house.

  • Reduced Dependence on Individual Consultants
    For network maintenance, smaller organizations commonly depend on independent freelance service providers. Although independent service people have smaller internal costs than big consulting companies and can often charge lower rates, they are often stretched too thin, making it difficult to respond quickly to urgent situations. If an independent consultant is busy with another client, ill, on a trip, or in class, the lack of reserve help may force your business to wait for assistance during an emergency. As your company expands, network unavailability and problems with vital software are more expensive. The money you thought you were saving on a freelancer can be consumed fast by lost productivity. Progent provides a dependable source of reserve service expertise to make sure your IT system is always available.

  • Create a Scalable Basis for Smooth Growth
    Businesses typically begin with an IT system created on a modest budget. Without a robust framework, band-aid repairs often get thrown on top of a weak foundation. When a company grows, stability and expandability problems can hinder the success of the business. Such badly designed systems require careful analysis, intelligent long-term planning, and wide IT knowledge to evolve to a system architecture that can deliver the stable foundation to handle vital business requirements and ease downstream expansion.

  • Interact with Solution Providers Rather Than Product Vendors
    Smaller companies need advice and technical education to negotiate an ever more complicated array of technology options capable of accelerating business growth and improving efficiency. Businesses do not need a network consultant who is motivated to earn a commission on a specific vendor's technology. IT support and product sales can lead to a scenario where the recommended solution is built around a predetermined product instead of the true needs of a business. Progent avoids these conflicts by selling just services rather than products. This allows Progent to align technical consulting with the real interests of clients.

How Is Progent Unique from Other Support Firms?
Progent is a Microsoft Partner consulting firm and Progent's staff size, breadth of technical expertise, refined remote support software, and understanding of enterprise networking enable companies to avoid the pitfalls of excessive reliance on smaller consulting organizations, individual freelance service providers, or limited internal resources.
