Benefits of Progent's Network Help for Companies in Mobile
Progent's online technical help services enable your Mobile organization to realize the benefits of immediate, enterprise-class IT support without the cost of managing an in-house IT staff. Your information system will acquire greater strategic value by becoming increasingly available, efficient, and secure. Advantages to your business include:

  • Convenient remote expansion of your on-site support resources
    For most offices in Mobile and throughout Alabama, nearby network service resources, whether represented by outside consultants or an internal maintenance staff, can deal with the majority of technical problems. On the other hand, IT crises sometimes occur when your regular support personnel are too busy or unavailable, and some trouble may stem from technology that is beyond the scope of your onsite support personnel. In these instances, Progent's on-call support specialists offer a convenient, quick, and economical solution to augment your regular resources and to convey useful knowledge to increase your capability to handle future problems locally.

  • Reduced Reliance on Freelance Consultants
    For IT maintenance, smaller offices commonly depend on individual freelance consultants. While independent service people carry smaller internal costs than larger service firms and can often charge marginally less, they are occasionally stretched too thin, making it hard to respond rapidly to crisis situations. If an independent service provider is busy with another customer, ill, on a trip, or in class, the absence of fallback personnel may force your company to wait for assistance during an emergency. As your company expands, network unavailability and problems with critical software are more expensive. The money you thought you were conserving on an independent can be consumed fast by lost productivity. Progent provides a ready source of reserve support experts to insure your network stays available.

  • Create a Solid Foundation for Smooth Growth
    Organizations typically start with an information system created on a modest budget. Without a scalable framework, slap-dash fixes often get piled on top of a weak foundation. As a company grows, reliability and scalability problems can hinder the success of the business. These badly built environments require careful analysis, intelligent long-term planning, and wide technical knowledge to evolve to a network infrastructure able to offer the stable foundation to meet critical business demands and ease future expansion.

  • Interact with Problem Solvers Instead of Technology Sellers
    Smaller companies need advice and technical training to negotiate an ever more complex array of technology alternatives available for accelerating business success and improving productivity. They hardly need a network consultant who is trying to resell a certain vendor's products. Network support and product selling can result in a situation where the recommended solution is built around a profitable technology rather than the genuine needs of a business. Progent avoids these dilemmas by offering just services rather than products. This enables Progent to align IT expertise with the real needs of customers.

What Makes Progent Different from Other Support Firms?
Progent is a Microsoft Certified Partner support firm and Progent's number of employees, breadth of IT expertise, refined support software, and understanding of enterprise networking allow businesses to avoid the pitfalls associated with excessive reliance on smaller service firms, independent freelance service providers, or over-stretched in-house resources.

  • Information Transfer
    Progent practices knowledge transfer from Progent's support experts to clients. By educating clients to handle technical issues that are within their comfort zone, Progent is able to focus on offering high-value skills where Progent faces little competition.
