Benefits of Progent's Network Help for Organizations in Irving
Progent's online IT consulting services enable your Irving business to realize the advantages of on-call, world-class IT support without the cost of maintaining an in-house IT staff. Your network will acquire greater business worth by becoming increasingly reliable, efficient, and protected. Benefits to your business include:

  • Convenient virtual expansion of your local IT resources
    With most businesses in Irving or anywhere in Texas, local computer service resources, whether consisting of independent consultants or a full-time IT staff, can deal with typical network issues. However, major troubles may spring up when local resources are overstretched or absent, and some problems may involve IT products that is beyond the scope of your local support technicians. In these cases, Progent's on-call service professionals offer a convenient, quick, and budget-friendly way to augment your local resources and to convey valuable information to improve your ability to resolve future problems in-house.

  • Less Reliance on Individual Consultants
    For IT support, smaller offices commonly rely on individual freelance consultants. While independent consultants carry smaller overhead than big service firms and can often charge lower rates, they are occasionally overbooked, making it difficult to respond quickly to urgent situations. If a freelance service provider is busy with another customer, ill, on a trip, or in training, the lack of reserve personnel may force your company to wait for help during an IT crisis. As your business grows, system downtime and problems with critical applications are more expensive. The money you thought you were conserving on a freelancer can be eaten up quickly by lost productivity. Progent offers a reliable source of backup service expertise to make sure your network remains up and running.

  • Create a Solid Basis for Seamless Expansion
    Businesses often begin with an IT architecture implemented on a modest budget. Lacking a proper framework, slap-dash repairs can get piled on top of a shaky foundation. As a network grows, stability and scalability problems can impede the productivity of the business. These badly built environments need careful analysis, intelligent strategic planning, and extensive technical expertise to evolve to a network architecture able to deliver the solid foundation to meet critical business demands and ease downstream expansion.

  • Interact with Problem Solvers Rather Than Technology Sellers
    Smaller businesses need advice and technical education to navigate through an increasingly complex maze of technology alternatives capable of promoting business growth and improving productivity. Businesses hardly need a network engineer who is motivated to sell a certain vendor's technology. Network support and product sales can lead to a situation where the proposed solution is built around a profitable technology instead of the true requirements of a client. Progent eliminates these conflicts by offering just services rather than products. This allows Progent to match IT consulting with the best interests of clients.

How Is Progent Different from Other Service Organizations?
Progent is a Microsoft Certified Partner consulting firm and Progent's head count, range of IT experience, refined remote support software, and understanding of enterprise networking allow offices to escape the limitations associated with excessive reliance on smaller consulting firms, individual freelance service providers, or over-stretched in-house resources.

Progent adds value by offering:

  • Best Practices
    Progentís team of Microsoft and Cisco Premier Certified experts average longer than ten years of hands-on professional experience, at the front lines of network service, performing a wide variety of technical projects for a large mix of businesses.

  • Value Pricing

Progent does not impose a higher rate for after-hours or priority support, and inside California or in regions where Progent provides in-person support, Progent does not charge for travel except for urgent calls where on-site time is less than 4 hours. Also, Progent applies no service activation charge and asks no monthly commitment for support services delivered during regular business hours. Many support firms impose substantial minimum fees or charge for each fifteen minutes or longer. Progent's one-minute granularity does away with large bills for quick repairs so you won't be tempted to allow less critical problems to stay unaddressed.

  • Information Transfer
    Progent practices knowledge transfer from Progent's consultants to customers. By educating clients to handle technical issues that are within their comfort zone, Progent can concentrate on delivering high-value services where Progent has few competitors. Businesses who work with familiar independent service providers or who employ in-house support staffs benefit when Progent passes on knowledge about critical technology and tested processes to make their IT environments more reliable, protected, and productive.
