Advantages of Progent's Network Help for Organizations in Minnetonka
Progent's online technical help services allow your Minnetonka organization to have the benefits of timely, enterprise-grade IT support without the expense of managing an in-house IT staff. Your information system will acquire added business worth by being more available, efficient, and secure. Benefits to your company include:

  • Convenient remote extension of your local support resources
    With most businesses in Minnetonka and throughout Minnesota, local network support resources, whether consisting of independent consultants or a full-time maintenance staff, can resolve typical network issues. However, major troubles may spring up when your regular support personnel are overstretched or absent, and some problems may stem from IT products that is unfamiliar to your onsite service personnel. In these cases, Progent's online service experts offer a convenient, fast, and affordable way to augment your regular help and to convey useful knowledge to increase your capability to deal with future problems in-house.

  • Less Reliance on Individual Service Providers
    For IT maintenance, smaller organizations often rely on individual freelance service providers. While freelance service people have less internal costs than big consulting companies and can often charge marginally less, they are occasionally overextended, making it impossible to respond rapidly to urgent situations. If an independent service provider is occupied with another customer, ill, on a trip, or in class, the lack of backup personnel may require your company to go without assistance during an IT crisis. As your company grows, network downtime and trouble with critical applications become more expensive. The budget you thought you were saving on an independent can be eaten up quickly by reduced productivity. Progent provides an on-call source of backup support expertise to insure your network is always available.

  • Create a Scalable Basis for Seamless Growth
    Businesses often start with an IT system created on a modest budget. Lacking a robust framework, band-aid repairs often get thrown onto a weak foundation. When a network grows, stability and scalability problems can hinder the productivity of the business. Such poorly built systems need proper assessment, smart long-term planning, and wide technical knowledge to upgrade to a network architecture able to provide the solid foundation to meet vital business demands and simplify future expansion.

  • Interact with Problem Solvers Instead of Product Vendors
    Smaller offices need guidance and technical training to navigate through an ever more complex array of product options capable of promoting business success and enhancing efficiency. Businesses hardly need a computer engineer who is attempting to sell a specific vendor's technology. Network consulting and product sales can result in a scenario where the proposed solution is designed around a predetermined technology rather than the true needs of a business. Progent avoids these conflicts of interest by selling only services instead of products. This enables Progent to align technical expertise with the real interests of customers.

How Is Progent Different from Other Support Firms?
Progent is a Microsoft Partner consulting company and Progent's staff size, breadth of technical background, fine tuned remote support tools, and familiarity with enterprise networking allow businesses to escape the pitfalls of exclusive dependence on smaller service organizations, independent freelance consultants, or limited in-house resources.
