  • Convenient remote extension of your on-site IT resources
    With most businesses in Lexington-Fayette or anywhere in Kentucky, nearby network support resources, whether made up of freelance consultants or an internal maintenance staff, can resolve the majority of technical problems. However, major troubles may spring up when local resources are too busy or unavailable, and some problems may stem from technology that is beyond the scope of your usual support personnel. In these cases, Progent's online support specialists provide a convenient, quick, and economical solution to augment your local resources and to pass on valuable knowledge to increase your capability to handle future problems locally.

  • Reduced Dependence on Individual Service Providers
    For IT maintenance, smaller offices commonly rely on independent freelance consultants. While independent consultants have less internal costs than big consulting organizations and can afford to charge lower rates, they are sometimes overextended, making it difficult to respond rapidly to urgent situations. If a freelance consultant is busy with another customer, ill, on vacation, or in training, the absence of reserve personnel may force your business to go without assistance during an IT crisis. As your network expands, system unavailability and trouble with critical applications are more expensive. The money you thought you were conserving on a freelancer can be eaten up fast by reduced productivity. Progent provides a ready source of backup support experts to insure your IT system remains up and running.

  • Build a Scalable Foundation for Smooth Growth
    Organizations typically start with an IT architecture implemented on a shoestring budget. Lacking a proper framework, slap-dash repairs often get piled onto a weak foundation. As a company grows, stability and scalability issues can hinder the success of the organization. These poorly built systems require careful assessment, intelligent long-term planning, and extensive IT knowledge to upgrade to a system architecture able to deliver the solid foundation to meet vital business demands and facilitate future expansion.

  • Work with Solution Providers Rather Than Product Sellers
    Smaller offices need advice and technical training to navigate through an increasingly complicated maze of product options available for promoting business growth and enhancing productivity. Businesses hardly need a computer consultant who is trying to sell a certain vendor's technology. IT support and product selling can result in a situation where the proposed solution is designed around a profitable technology instead of the genuine requirements of a client. Progent eliminates these dilemmas by offering just services rather than products. This enables Progent to match IT expertise with the real needs of clients.

How Is Progent Different from Other Support Organizations?
Progent is a Microsoft Certified Partner consulting company and Progent's number of employees, breadth of technical background, fine tuned support tools, and understanding of corporate IT enable offices to avoid the pitfalls associated with exclusive reliance on smaller service organizations, independent freelance consultants, or limited in-house IT help.
