Even if your Irving business relies on a regular independent support technician or employs an in-house organization that can handle common network issues, Progentís Microsoft and Cisco certified consultants can still offer an easy and seamless remote extension of your on-site resources for situations when your usual IT support personnel either lack the availability or the experience to resolve unexpected system emergencies or particularly complicated integration problems.

Benefits of Progent's IT Support for Organizations in Irving
Progent's online technical help services enable your Irving organization to have the benefits of immediate, expert IT support without the cost of maintaining an in-house IT staff. Your network will acquire added strategic value by being increasingly available, productive, and secure. Advantages to your business include:

  • Seamless remote extension of your on-site IT resources
    With most offices in Irving or anywhere in Texas, nearby computer support resources, whether represented by independent consultants or an internal maintenance staff, can solve the majority of network issues. On the other hand, IT crises can strike when your regular resources are overstretched or absent, and some trouble may stem from technology that is unfamiliar to your usual service technicians. In these cases, Progent's online support specialists give you a convenient, quick, and budget-friendly solution to supplement your local resources and to pass on useful knowledge to improve your capability to resolve future issues in-house.

  • Reduced Dependence on Individual Service Providers
    For network support, smaller businesses commonly depend on independent freelance consultants. While independent service people carry less overhead than larger service organizations and can afford to charge marginally less, they are sometimes stretched too thin, making it difficult to respond quickly to urgent situations. If a freelance consultant is busy with another client, ill, on a trip, or in training, the absence of fallback personnel may force your company to wait for help during an IT crisis. As your business grows, system downtime and trouble with vital applications are more expensive. The budget you thought you were conserving on an independent can be consumed fast by lost productivity. Progent provides a reliable source of reserve support experts to make sure your network stays up and running.

  • Create a Solid Foundation for Seamless Expansion
    Organizations often begin with an information architecture implemented on a shoestring budget. Lacking a strong framework, slap-dash fixes can get thrown onto a weak foundation. When a network grows, reliability and scalability issues can hinder the success of the organization. These badly designed systems need careful assessment, intelligent long-term planning, and extensive technical knowledge to evolve to a network infrastructure able to offer the stable foundation to meet current business requirements and ease downstream expansion.

  • Work with Solution Providers Rather Than Product Vendors
    Smaller organizations require guidance and technical education to navigate through an increasingly complex maze of technology options available for accelerating business growth and enhancing efficiency. These companies do not need a network engineer who is motivated to sell a certain vendor's products. Network consulting and product sales can result in a situation where the recommended solution is built around a profitable technology instead of the true requirements of a business. Progent avoids these conflicts by selling just services rather than products. This allows Progent to align IT expertise with the best interests of customers.

What Makes Progent Different from Other Support Firms?
Progent is a Microsoft Certified Partner support firm and Progent's head count, breadth of technical expertise, fine tuned remote support software, and familiarity with enterprise networking enable offices to escape the limitations of excessive reliance on smaller consulting firms, independent freelance service providers, or over-stretched in-house IT help.

Progent adds value by providing:

  • Best Practices
    Progentís staff of Microsoft and Cisco Certified experts average longer than ten years of real-world professional background, at the front lines of IT service, performing a broad variety of technical projects for a large mix of clients.

This ensures that you get not only world-class technical skills, but also a consultant with proven approaches for applying computer knowledge to solve real-world network problems efficiently.

  • Value Pricing
    Progent's pricing policy is to bill for online service and on-premises visits per minute. Consequently, you pay exclusively for received support. Progent does not demand a higher rate for after-hours or emergency service, and inside California or in regions where Progent offers in-person service, Progent does not charge for travel time except for urgent calls where on-site time is less than four hours. In addition, Progent applies no initialization charge and asks no monthly commitment for support services delivered during regular working hours. Many service organizations demand substantial minimum fees or charge for each quarter hour or longer. Progent's fine granularity does away with big bills for quick repairs so you won't be forced to permit less critical problems to stay unaddressed.

  • Knowledge Transfer
    Progent practices knowledge transfer from Progent's support experts to clients. By educating clients to deal with problems that are within their comfort zone, Progent is able to focus on providing high-value services where Progent has few competitors. Businesses who utilize familiar independent consultants or who employ in-house support staffs benefit when Progent passes on knowledge about new technology and tested processes to make their IT environments more robust, secure, and productive.

  • 24x7 Network Monitoring with Microsoft Operations Manager
    Progent is one of the only IT service companies to provide round-the-clock system tracking services based on Microsoft System Center Operations Manager.
