Benefits of Progent's IT Support for Businesses in Lexington-Fayette
Progent's remote network troubleshooting services allow your Lexington-Fayette business to experience the advantages of on-call, enterprise-class network support without the cost of maintaining an in-house IT staff. Your network will acquire greater strategic worth by becoming increasingly available, productive, and protected. Advantages to your company include:

  • Convenient virtual extension of your local support resources
    For most organizations in Lexington-Fayette or anywhere in Kentucky, nearby network service providers, whether represented by outside consultants or an internal IT staff, can solve typical network issues. On the other hand, serious problems sometimes spring up when your regular resources are too busy or unavailable, and some trouble may stem from IT products that is unfamiliar to your local service technicians. In these instances, Progent's online service experts give you an easy, fast, and budget-friendly way to augment your regular resources and to pass on useful information to increase your capability to resolve downstream issues locally.

  • Less Reliance on Individual Service Providers
    For IT support, smaller businesses often depend on individual freelance consultants. Although freelance consultants carry smaller internal costs than larger consulting organizations and can afford to charge marginally less, they are occasionally stretched too thin, making it difficult to respond quickly to urgent situations. If an independent consultant is busy with another customer, sick, on a trip, or in training, the lack of backup help may require your business to wait for help during an emergency. As your company grows, system unavailability and trouble with critical applications are more costly. The money you thought you were saving on a freelancer can be eaten up fast by reduced productivity. Progent provides a reliable source of reserve service expertise to make sure your IT system stays up and running.

  • Build a Solid Basis for Smooth Growth
    Businesses often start with an IT architecture created on a modest budget. Lacking a scalable framework, band-aid repairs often get piled on top of a shaky foundation. As a company grows, stability and expandability problems can impede the success of the organization. These badly built systems need proper assessment, intelligent strategic planning, and extensive technical expertise to upgrade to a network infrastructure that can offer the solid foundation to handle current business requirements and facilitate downstream growth.

  • Work with Problem Solvers Rather Than Product Vendors
    Smaller offices need guidance and technical training to navigate through an increasingly complicated maze of product options capable of accelerating business growth and enhancing efficiency. They hardly need a computer engineer who is attempting to sell a certain vendor's products. IT support and product selling can lead to a scenario where the recommended solution is built around a profitable technology instead of the genuine needs of a client. Progent avoids these conflicts by selling just services rather than products. This enables Progent to match IT consulting with the best interests of customers.

How Is Progent Different from Other Service Organizations?
Progent is a Microsoft Partner support firm and Progent's head count, breadth of technical expertise, fine tuned remote support tools, and familiarity with corporate IT allow businesses to avoid the pitfalls of excessive dependence on smaller consulting firms, independent freelance consultants, or over-stretched internal IT help.
