Advantages of Progent's IT Support for Organizations in Louisville
Progent's online support services allow your Louisville organization to enjoy the advantages of immediate, world-class network support without the expense of maintaining a full-time IT organization. Your information system will acquire greater strategic worth by being increasingly available, efficient, and protected. Advantages to your company include:

  • Convenient virtual expansion of your on-site IT resources
    For most businesses in Louisville and throughout Kentucky, local network service providers, whether consisting of outside consultants or an internal maintenance staff, can handle the majority of network issues. However, serious problems can spring up when local support personnel are too busy or absent, and some trouble may involve IT products that is unfamiliar to your usual service people. In these instances, Progent's online support experts give you a convenient, fast, and economical way to augment your local resources and to convey valuable knowledge to increase your ability to handle future problems in-house.

  • Reduced Dependence on Individual Consultants
    For network support, smaller businesses commonly rely on independent freelance consultants. Although independent service people carry less overhead than big consulting firms and can afford to charge lower rates, they are occasionally overbooked, making it hard to respond quickly to crisis situations. If an independent consultant is occupied with another client, sick, on a trip, or in class, the absence of backup help may force your company to go without help during an emergency. As your network expands, system downtime and trouble with vital applications are more costly. The money you thought you were saving on a freelancer can be eaten up quickly by reduced productivity. Progent provides a ready source of reserve support experts to make sure your IT system remains up and running.

  • Build a Solid Foundation for Smooth Expansion
    Organizations often start with an information architecture created on a modest budget. Lacking a strong infrastructure, slap-dash fixes often get piled on top of a shaky foundation. When a company grows, stability and scalability issues can hinder the productivity of the business. Such poorly designed systems need proper assessment, intelligent long-term planning, and broad-based IT knowledge to upgrade to a network infrastructure able to offer the solid foundation to handle current business requirements and ease future expansion.

  • Work with Solution Providers Instead of Product Vendors
    Smaller organizations need advice and technical education to navigate through an increasingly complex array of product alternatives capable of accelerating business growth and enhancing productivity. Businesses hardly need a network engineer who is trying to earn a commission on a specific vendor's products. Network consulting and product selling can lead to a scenario where the recommended solution is built around a predetermined product rather than the true requirements of a business. Progent eliminates these conflicts of interest by selling just services rather than products. This enables Progent to align technical expertise with the best needs of customers.

What Makes Progent Different from Other Service Firms?
Progent is a Microsoft Partner support firm and Progent's head count, range of technical expertise, fine tuned remote support software, and understanding of enterprise networking allow businesses to escape the pitfalls associated with excessive dependence on smaller service firms, independent freelance service providers, or over-stretched internal resources.

Progent adds value by offering:

Also, Progent applies no startup charge and requires no retainer for support services delivered during regular working hours.

Progent's fine granularity eliminates big bills for fast fixes so you won't be tempted to allow less critical problems to fester.

  • Knowledge Transfer
    Progent practices knowledge transfer from Progent's consultants to customers.

Businesses who work with trusted freelance consultants or who maintain in-house support staffs benefit when Progent passes on knowledge about critical technology and tested methodologies to make their IT environments more reliable, protected, and productive.

  • Remote Network Monitoring with Microsoft Operations Manager
    Progent is one of the few IT service firms to provide round-the-clock system tracking services based on MS Operations Manager. MS Operations Manager causes your network maintenance to be anticipatory rather than reactive. By revealing possible problems before they result in downtime, system monitoring can keep your information network from stressful and costly availability losses.
