Benefits of Progent's Network Help for Businesses in Lexington-Fayette
Progent's online support services allow your Lexington-Fayette business to realize the benefits of immediate, world-class IT support without the expense of managing an in-house IT staff. Your information system will acquire added business value by being more available, efficient, and secure. Advantages to your business include:

  • Convenient remote extension of your on-site support resources
    With most companies in Lexington-Fayette and throughout Kentucky, local computer support providers, whether consisting of independent consultants or a full-time IT staff, can deal with typical technical issues. However, major troubles may spring up when your regular support personnel are overstretched or unavailable, and some trouble may be associated with IT products that is beyond the scope of your onsite support personnel. In these instances, Progent's on-call support professionals give you an easy, quick, and budget-friendly way to supplement your regular resources and to transfer valuable information to increase your ability to handle future problems in-house.

  • Less Reliance on Individual Consultants
    For network maintenance, smaller offices often rely on independent freelance service providers. While independent consultants have smaller internal costs than big consulting firms and can often charge lower rates, they are sometimes overextended, making it difficult to respond rapidly to urgent situations. If a freelance service provider is occupied with another customer, sick, on vacation, or in training, the absence of fallback help may force your company to wait for assistance during an IT crisis. As your network grows, network downtime and trouble with critical applications become more expensive. 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 experts to make sure your network is always up and running.

  • Create a Scalable Foundation for Smooth Growth
    Businesses often start with an IT system implemented on a modest budget. Without a strong infrastructure, slap-dash fixes often get thrown on top of a weak foundation. When a network grows, reliability and scalability issues can impede the success of the business. Such poorly designed systems require careful assessment, smart strategic planning, and broad-based technical expertise to upgrade to a network infrastructure able to deliver the stable foundation to meet current business requirements and facilitate downstream expansion.

  • Work with Solution Providers Rather Than Product Vendors
    Smaller companies require advice and technical training to negotiate an increasingly complicated array of product alternatives capable of promoting business success and improving productivity. Businesses do not need a network engineer who is motivated to resell a certain vendor's technology. Network consulting and product selling can lead to a situation where the recommended solution is built around a predetermined product rather than the true requirements of a client. Progent avoids these dilemmas by offering only services rather than products. This enables Progent to align technical consulting with the best needs of customers.

What Makes Progent Unique from Other Support Organizations?
Progent is a Microsoft Partner support company and Progent's staff size, range of technical background, refined remote support software, and understanding of corporate IT enable companies to avoid the pitfalls associated with exclusive reliance on smaller consulting firms, individual freelance consultants, or over-stretched internal resources.

  • Remote Server Monitoring with Microsoft Operations Manager
