Benefits of Progent's IT Support for Companies in Plano Texas
Progent's online IT consulting services enable your Plano company to enjoy the benefits of timely, world-class IT support without the expense of managing an in-house IT organization. Your information system will acquire greater business worth by being more reliable, productive, and protected. Advantages to your company include:
- Convenient remote extension of your on-site IT resources
For most organizations in Plano Texas, nearby computer support resources, whether represented by freelance consultants or a full-time IT staff, can take care of typical technical issues. On the other hand, IT crises may strike when your regular resources are too busy or absent, and some trouble may be associated with IT products that is unfamiliar to your onsite service people. In these situations, Progent's online support experts provide an easy, quick, and affordable way to augment your regular help and to transfer useful information to increase your capability to handle downstream problems in-house.
- Reduced Reliance on Individual Service Providers
For network maintenance, smaller businesses commonly depend on individual freelance service providers. Although independent service people carry less internal costs than big service firms and can afford to charge marginally less, they are occasionally overextended, making it hard to respond rapidly to crisis situations. If a freelance consultant is busy with another client, ill, on a trip, or in class, the absence of reserve help may force your company to wait for help during an emergency. As your business grows, system downtime and problems with critical applications become more costly. The budget you thought you were saving on an independent can be eaten up quickly by lost productivity. Progent offers an on-call source of backup service expertise to make sure your network remains available.
- Build a Solid Foundation for Smooth Growth
Businesses typically begin with an IT architecture created on a shoestring budget. Without a robust infrastructure, band-aid fixes can get piled onto a weak foundation. As a network grows, stability and scalability problems can impede the productivity of the organization. These poorly designed systems need careful analysis, smart strategic planning, and wide technical knowledge to evolve to a system architecture that can deliver the solid foundation to handle vital business demands and simplify downstream expansion.
- Work with Problem Solvers Instead of Technology Sellers
Smaller companies need guidance and technical education to navigate through an increasingly complex array of product alternatives capable of promoting business success and enhancing productivity. These companies hardly need a network engineer who is motivated to earn a commission on a certain vendor's products. Network support and product sales can lead to a situation where the recommended
solution is built around a predetermined technology instead of the genuine needs of a client. Progent eliminates these dilemmas by offering just services rather than products. This enables Progent to align technical consulting with the real needs of clients.
How Is Progent Unique from Other Support Organizations?
Progent is a Microsoft Certified Partner support firm and Progent's head count, depth of technical expertise, refined support tools, and understanding of corporate IT enable businesses to escape the limitations associated with exclusive dependence on smaller service firms, individual freelance service providers, or limited in-house IT help.
Progent adds value by providing:
