Benefits of Progent's Network Help for Businesses in Philadelphia
Progent's remote IT consulting services allow your Philadelphia company to experience the benefits of immediate, world-class network support without the expense of maintaining a full-time IT staff. Your information system will derive added business value by becoming more reliable, productive, and secure. Benefits to your company include:

  • Convenient remote extension of your local IT resources
    With most organizations in Philadelphia and throughout Pennsylvania, local network support resources, whether consisting of independent consultants or an internal maintenance staff, can take care of typical network problems. However, major troubles sometimes occur when your regular resources are overstretched or absent, and some trouble may involve IT products that is beyond the scope of your usual service personnel. In these situations, Progent's online support professionals give you an easy, fast, and economical way to supplement your regular help and to convey valuable knowledge to increase your capability to deal with downstream problems locally.

  • Reduced Dependence on Individual Service Providers
    For IT maintenance, smaller organizations often rely on independent freelance service providers. Although freelance service people have smaller internal costs than big consulting companies and can afford to charge marginally less, they are occasionally stretched too thin, making it hard to respond rapidly to crisis situations. If a freelance consultant is occupied with another customer, sick, on a trip, or in training, the absence of fallback personnel may force your business to wait for help during an emergency. As your network grows, system downtime and problems with vital software are more costly. The budget you thought you were saving on a freelancer can be consumed fast by reduced productivity. Progent provides a reliable source of reserve service expertise to insure your IT system remains up and running.

  • Build a Solid Basis for Smooth Expansion
    Companies typically start with an information architecture created on a modest budget. Lacking a strong framework, slap-dash fixes can get piled on top of a weak foundation. As a company grows, stability and scalability issues can hinder the success of the business. These poorly built systems need careful assessment, smart strategic planning, and extensive technical expertise to evolve to a network architecture able to offer the solid foundation to meet critical business demands and ease downstream growth.

  • Interact with Problem Solvers Instead of Product Resellers
    Smaller organizations require guidance and technical training to navigate through an ever more complicated maze of product alternatives capable of promoting business success and improving efficiency. These companies hardly need a network engineer who is attempting to sell a specific vendor's products. IT support and product sales can lead to a scenario where the proposed solution is built around a profitable product instead of the true requirements of a business. Progent eliminates these dilemmas by selling only services rather than products. This enables Progent to match technical expertise with the best interests of clients.

How Is Progent Different from Other Service Organizations?
Progent is a Microsoft Partner support company and Progent's staff size, range of IT background, fine tuned support tools, and familiarity with corporate IT allow companies to avoid the pitfalls of excessive dependence on smaller consulting firms, individual freelance consultants, or limited internal resources.

  • Full Documentation of IT Services
    Progent has developed a comprehensive service reporting system that records and formats detailed documentation for all billed services. Unlike many freelance consultants or local service firms who offer scant documentation or details of tasks done, every service delivered by Progent is tracked by full documentation. Each Progent consultant has access to the service documentation transmitted by every consultant to every customer. The practice of detailing and organizing service records allows more efficient service and avoids a slew of typical misfortunes such as when a support customer is effectively held captive to a consultant who wonít let go of vital service information.

  • 24x7 Network Monitoring with MS System Center Operations Manager
