Benefits of Progent's Network Help for Companies in Plano
Progent's online support services enable your Plano business to have the advantages of timely, enterprise-level IT support without the expense of maintaining an in-house IT staff. Your network will acquire greater strategic worth by becoming more reliable, efficient, and secure. Advantages to your company include:

  • Convenient virtual expansion of your on-site IT resources
    With most organizations in Plano and throughout Texas, nearby network support providers, whether made up of independent consultants or a full-time maintenance staff, can handle typical technical problems. On the other hand, major troubles can strike when local support personnel are too busy or unavailable, and some problems may stem from IT products that is beyond the scope of your onsite service personnel. In these situations, Progent's on-call support experts offer a convenient, fast, and affordable solution to augment your local help and to convey useful information to increase your ability to resolve downstream issues in-house.

  • Reduced Dependence on Freelance Service Providers
    For network maintenance, smaller businesses often depend on independent freelance consultants. Although independent service people carry smaller internal costs than larger consulting companies and can often charge lower rates, they are sometimes overextended, making it difficult to respond rapidly to urgent situations. If an independent consultant is occupied with another client, sick, on vacation, or in training, the lack of fallback help may force your company to wait for help during an emergency. As your company grows, system downtime and trouble with vital 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 reserve support experts to make sure your IT system remains available.

  • Create a Solid Basis for Smooth Growth
    Businesses typically start with an IT architecture created on a modest budget. Lacking a robust infrastructure, slap-dash fixes often get piled onto a shaky foundation. As a network grows, reliability and expandability problems can impede the success of the business. These badly built systems need proper assessment, smart strategic planning, and broad-based technical expertise to evolve to a network architecture able to deliver the stable foundation to meet current business requirements and simplify downstream growth.

  • Interact with Problem Solvers Instead of Product Resellers
    Smaller businesses need guidance and technical education to negotiate an ever more complex array of product options available for promoting business growth and enhancing productivity. These companies hardly need a network engineer who is trying to earn a commission on a certain vendor's products. IT support and product sales can lead to a scenario where the recommended solution is built around a predetermined product instead of the true requirements of a client. Progent avoids these conflicts by selling just services rather than products. This enables Progent to match IT expertise with the real interests of customers.

What Makes Progent Different from Other Service Firms?
Progent is a Microsoft Certified Partner consulting firm and Progent's staff size, depth of IT experience, refined remote support software, and understanding of enterprise networking allow companies to avoid the limitations of excessive dependence on smaller consulting firms, independent freelance service providers, or limited internal IT help.
