Benefits of Progent's IT Support for Offices in Minnetonka
Progent's remote technical help services allow your Minnetonka company to have the benefits of immediate, enterprise-grade network support without the expense of managing an in-house IT staff. Your network will acquire greater strategic worth by being more reliable, efficient, and secure. Advantages to your business include:

  • Convenient virtual expansion of your local IT resources
    For most companies in Minnetonka or anywhere in Minnesota, nearby network support resources, whether made up of freelance consultants or an internal IT staff, can solve the majority of network issues. On the other hand, serious problems might spring up when your regular resources are overstretched or unavailable, and some trouble may involve technology that is unfamiliar to your onsite service personnel. In these cases, Progent's on-call support professionals give you a convenient, fast, and affordable solution to supplement your local help and to convey useful knowledge to improve your ability to deal with future issues locally.

  • Less Dependence on Individual Consultants
    For IT support, smaller businesses commonly rely on individual freelance service providers. Although freelance consultants carry less internal costs than larger service firms and can often charge marginally less, they are sometimes overextended, making it impossible to respond rapidly to crisis situations. If a freelance service provider is occupied with another customer, sick, on a trip, or in training, the absence of fallback help may force your business to wait for assistance during an IT crisis. As your company expands, system unavailability and trouble with vital applications are more costly. The budget you thought you were saving on a freelancer can be eaten up quickly by reduced productivity. Progent offers a reliable source of backup service experts to insure your network remains up and running.

  • Build a Solid Foundation for Seamless Expansion
    Businesses typically begin with an IT system implemented on a modest budget. Without a robust infrastructure, slap-dash repairs often get piled on top of an unstable foundation. As a company grows, reliability and scalability problems can impede the productivity of the business. These badly built environments require proper assessment, intelligent long-term planning, and extensive IT expertise to upgrade to a system infrastructure able to deliver the solid foundation to handle critical business demands and simplify future growth.

  • Interact with Problem Solvers Rather Than Technology Sellers
    Smaller offices need guidance and technical training to negotiate an ever more complex maze of technology options available for promoting business success and improving efficiency. Businesses do not need a network engineer who is motivated to sell a certain vendor's technology. IT consulting and product sales can lead to a scenario where the recommended solution is designed around a predetermined technology instead of the genuine requirements of a client. Progent eliminates these dilemmas by offering just services rather than products. This allows Progent to align IT consulting with the best interests of customers.

What Makes Progent Unique from Other Service Organizations?
Progent is a Microsoft Partner support company and Progent's staff size, depth of technical expertise, refined support tools, and understanding of corporate IT enable businesses to avoid the limitations of excessive dependence on smaller consulting firms, individual freelance service providers, or limited internal IT help.
