Benefits of Progent's Network Help for Offices in Mobile
Progent's remote network troubleshooting services allow your Mobile organization to realize the benefits of immediate, expert IT support without the expense of maintaining a full-time IT organization. Your information system will derive added business value by becoming increasingly available, efficient, and secure. Benefits to your business include:

  • Seamless remote expansion of your on-site IT resources
    With most companies in Mobile or anywhere in Alabama, local computer support resources, whether made up of outside consultants or an internal maintenance staff, can solve typical network problems. On the other hand, major troubles may spring up when local support personnel are overstretched or absent, and some trouble may be associated with IT products that is beyond the scope of your local service people. In these cases, Progent's online support experts give you a convenient, quick, and budget-friendly way to supplement your local help and to pass on valuable knowledge to increase your capability to deal with future issues in-house.

  • Reduced Dependence on Freelance Service Providers
    For network maintenance, smaller companies often rely on individual freelance consultants. While freelance consultants have smaller overhead than larger service companies and can often charge marginally less, they are occasionally stretched too thin, making it hard to respond quickly to urgent situations. If a freelance consultant is occupied with another customer, sick, on vacation, or in training, the absence of backup help may require your business to go without assistance during an IT crisis. As your network grows, network downtime and trouble with vital software become more costly. The money you thought you were saving on a freelancer can be eaten up quickly by reduced productivity. Progent offers a dependable source of reserve service experts to insure your IT system remains up and running.

  • Create a Solid Basis for Smooth Expansion
    Organizations typically start with an information system implemented on a modest budget. Without a proper infrastructure, slap-dash fixes can get piled onto a shaky foundation. When a company grows, stability and scalability issues can hinder the productivity of the organization. These poorly built systems need careful analysis, intelligent strategic planning, and wide technical knowledge to evolve to a system infrastructure that can offer the solid foundation to handle vital business demands and simplify future expansion.

  • Work with Problem Solvers Instead of Product Sellers
    Smaller organizations require advice and technical training to navigate through an ever more complicated array of product options capable of accelerating business success and improving productivity. They do not need a network consultant who is trying to sell a specific vendor's technology. IT support and product sales can result in a scenario where the proposed solution is designed around a profitable technology rather than the true needs of a business. Progent eliminates these dilemmas by selling just services instead of products. This allows Progent to match IT consulting with the best interests of customers.

How Is Progent Different from Other Support Organizations?
Progent is a Microsoft Partner support company and Progent's number of employees, range of technical knowledge, fine tuned remote support software, and familiarity with enterprise networking allow businesses to escape the limitations of exclusive reliance on smaller service organizations, independent freelance consultants, or limited in-house IT help.
