Advantages of Progent's Network Help for Organizations in Knoxville
Progent's online IT consulting services allow your Knoxville organization to realize the benefits of timely, world-class network support without the expense of managing an in-house IT organization. Your network will derive added business value by being more available, efficient, and secure. Advantages to your business include:

  • Convenient remote expansion of your on-site IT resources
    With most organizations in Knoxville and throughout Tennessee, local network service resources, whether made up of freelance consultants or a full-time IT staff, can solve the majority of network problems. On the other hand, major troubles might strike when local support personnel are too busy or absent, and some problems may be associated with IT products that is unfamiliar to your usual service technicians. In these situations, Progent's on-call support specialists offer a convenient, quick, and affordable solution to supplement your regular resources and to pass on valuable information to improve your ability to handle future problems in-house.

  • Less Reliance on Freelance Consultants
    For network maintenance, smaller offices often depend on independent freelance service providers. While independent consultants have smaller overhead than larger service organizations and can often charge marginally less, they are occasionally overbooked, making it difficult to respond quickly to crisis situations. If a freelance service provider is occupied with another customer, sick, on a trip, or in training, the lack of backup personnel may require your company to wait for help during an emergency. As your business grows, network downtime and trouble with critical applications are more expensive. The budget you thought you were saving on a freelancer can be eaten up quickly by lost productivity. Progent offers an on-call source of reserve support experts to make sure your network is always available.

  • Build a Scalable Basis for Seamless Expansion
    Companies typically begin with an IT architecture created on a shoestring budget. Lacking a scalable infrastructure, band-aid fixes often get thrown onto a weak foundation. As a company grows, stability and expandability problems can impede the productivity of the business. Such poorly designed environments need proper assessment, intelligent long-term planning, and broad-based technical knowledge to upgrade to a network architecture that can offer the solid foundation to meet current business requirements and facilitate downstream growth.

  • Interact with Solution Providers Instead of Product Resellers
    Smaller organizations require guidance and technical training to negotiate an ever more complicated maze of technology alternatives capable of promoting business success and enhancing productivity. Businesses do not need a computer consultant who is trying to sell a specific vendor's technology. Network consulting and product sales can lead to a scenario where the recommended solution is designed around a profitable product instead of the genuine requirements of a business. Progent eliminates these dilemmas by offering only services rather than products. This enables Progent to match technical consulting with the real needs of clients.

What Makes Progent Different from Other Service Organizations?
Progent is a Microsoft Certified Partner consulting company and Progent's staff size, breadth of technical background, refined support software, and familiarity with enterprise networking enable businesses to avoid the limitations associated with exclusive reliance on smaller service organizations, individual freelance consultants, or limited in-house resources.
