Advantages of Progent's Network Help for Businesses in Plano Texas
Progent's remote technical help services allow your Plano organization to have the advantages of immediate, enterprise-level network support without the expense of managing an in-house IT organization. Your information system will derive added business worth by being increasingly available, efficient, and secure. Advantages to your business include:
- Convenient remote expansion of your on-site IT resources
For most companies in Plano Texas, nearby network support providers, whether represented by freelance consultants or a full-time IT staff, can deal with typical technical problems. However, serious problems can strike when your regular support personnel are overstretched or absent, and some problems may stem from IT products that is unfamiliar to your usual support personnel. In these situations, Progent's on-call support specialists give you a convenient, quick, and budget-friendly way to augment your regular help and to convey valuable knowledge to improve your capability to deal with future issues in-house.
- Less Dependence on Freelance Consultants
For IT support, smaller companies often depend on individual freelance consultants. While freelance service people have smaller internal costs than big consulting firms and can often charge lower rates, they are sometimes stretched too thin, making it impossible to respond rapidly to crisis situations. If a freelance consultant is busy with another customer, sick, on a trip, or in class, the absence of backup help may force your business to wait for help during an emergency. As your business expands, network unavailability and trouble with vital applications are more costly. The budget you thought you were conserving on an independent can be eaten up quickly by reduced productivity. Progent provides a ready source of backup support expertise to insure your IT system is always up and running.
- Create a Scalable Basis for Smooth Growth
Organizations often start with an information architecture created on a modest budget. Without a scalable infrastructure, band-aid fixes can get piled onto a weak foundation. When a company grows, reliability and expandability problems can impede the productivity of the organization. Such badly built systems require proper analysis, smart long-term planning, and broad-based IT expertise to upgrade to a network infrastructure able to deliver the stable foundation to meet vital business demands and facilitate downstream expansion.
- Work with Problem Solvers Rather Than Technology Sellers
Smaller organizations need guidance and technical education to negotiate an ever more complicated array of technology alternatives available for accelerating business success and enhancing efficiency. These companies hardly need a network engineer who is trying to earn a commission on a certain vendor's technology. Network support and product sales can result in 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 offering only services rather than products. This allows Progent to align technical expertise with the best needs of clients.
What Makes Progent Different from Other Service Firms?
Progent is a Microsoft Certified Partner support company and Progent's number of employees, breadth of technical knowledge, fine tuned support software, and understanding of enterprise networking allow businesses to avoid the pitfalls of exclusive dependence on smaller service firms, individual freelance service providers, or over-stretched in-house IT help.
