Benefits of Progent's IT Support for Organizations in Plano
Progent's online network troubleshooting services allow your Plano business to realize the advantages of timely, enterprise-grade IT support without the expense of maintaining an in-house IT staff. Your information system will acquire greater business worth by becoming more reliable, productive, and secure. Benefits to your business include:

  • Seamless remote expansion of your on-site support resources
    With most companies in Plano and throughout Texas, local computer support providers, whether consisting of independent consultants or an internal maintenance staff, can handle typical network issues. However, serious problems can spring up when local resources are overstretched or absent, and some trouble may stem from technology that is beyond the scope of your onsite service personnel. In these cases, Progent's on-call service specialists offer a convenient, quick, and economical way to supplement your local help and to pass on useful knowledge to increase your ability to deal with downstream problems locally.

  • Reduced Dependence on Individual Service Providers
    For network maintenance, smaller organizations commonly depend on independent freelance consultants. Although freelance consultants have smaller internal costs than big service firms and can often charge lower rates, they are occasionally overbooked, making it impossible to respond rapidly to crisis situations. If an independent consultant is occupied with another client, sick, on a trip, or in training, the lack of backup help may force your business to go without assistance during an emergency. As your company grows, system unavailability and problems with critical applications become more expensive. The budget you thought you were saving on a freelancer can be eaten up fast by reduced productivity. Progent offers an on-call source of reserve support expertise to make sure your network remains available.

  • Build a Scalable Basis for Seamless Growth
    Businesses typically begin with an information architecture created on a shoestring budget. Lacking a robust infrastructure, slap-dash fixes often get piled on top of a shaky foundation. When a company grows, stability and expandability issues can hinder the productivity of the business. These badly designed systems need careful assessment, smart strategic planning, and wide technical expertise to upgrade to a system architecture able to offer the solid foundation to handle critical business requirements and simplify future growth.

  • Work with Problem Solvers Rather Than Technology Resellers
    Smaller offices need advice and technical education to negotiate an ever more complex maze of product alternatives available for promoting business growth and enhancing efficiency. Businesses do not need a network engineer who is trying to resell a certain vendor's technology. IT support and product selling can lead to a scenario where the proposed solution is built around a profitable product rather than the true requirements of a client. Progent avoids these conflicts of interest by selling just services rather than products. This enables Progent to match IT consulting with the real interests of clients.

How Is Progent Unique from Other Support Firms?
Progent is a Microsoft Certified Partner consulting company and Progent's staff size, breadth of IT knowledge, fine tuned support software, and familiarity with corporate IT allow companies to escape the pitfalls of exclusive dependence on smaller service organizations, independent freelance consultants, or limited internal resources.
