Benefits of Progent's IT Support for Offices in Plano
Progent's remote IT consulting services allow your Plano organization to have the advantages of on-call, enterprise-grade IT support without the expense of maintaining an in-house IT staff. Your network will derive added strategic worth by becoming increasingly reliable, productive, and secure. Benefits to your business include:

  • Convenient remote expansion of your local IT resources
    For most companies in Plano or anywhere in Texas, local computer service resources, whether made up of independent consultants or an in-house maintenance staff, can solve typical network issues. However, serious problems might spring up when your regular support personnel are overstretched or unavailable, and some trouble may be associated with technology that is unfamiliar to your onsite service technicians. In these instances, Progent's online service specialists offer a convenient, quick, and affordable solution to supplement your regular help and to transfer valuable knowledge to improve your ability to resolve future problems in-house.

  • Reduced Dependence on Individual Consultants
    For IT maintenance, smaller companies commonly rely on independent freelance service providers. Although independent consultants have smaller overhead than larger service firms and can often charge lower rates, they are often overbooked, making it impossible to respond quickly to urgent situations. If a freelance consultant is occupied with another customer, sick, on vacation, or in training, the absence of backup help may require your company to go without assistance during an IT crisis. As your company grows, network unavailability and problems with vital applications become more expensive. The budget you thought you were saving on a freelancer can be consumed quickly by reduced productivity. Progent provides a dependable source of reserve support expertise to make sure your IT system remains available.

  • Build a Scalable Foundation for Seamless Growth
    Organizations typically start with an IT architecture created on a modest budget. Lacking a robust framework, band-aid repairs can get piled onto a weak foundation. When a network grows, stability and scalability issues can hinder the success of the organization. These poorly built environments need careful assessment, intelligent strategic planning, and extensive IT expertise to evolve to a system infrastructure able to offer the solid foundation to meet current business demands and ease downstream expansion.

  • Interact with Solution Providers Instead of Technology Resellers
    Smaller offices require advice and technical education to negotiate an increasingly complicated array of technology alternatives available for accelerating business growth and enhancing productivity. These companies do not need a network consultant who is attempting to resell a specific vendor's products. IT support and product sales can lead to a situation where the proposed solution is designed around a profitable technology instead of the genuine requirements of a client. Progent avoids these dilemmas by offering just services rather than products. This enables Progent to align technical consulting with the real needs of customers.

How Is Progent Unique from Other Support Firms?
Progent is a Microsoft Partner support company and Progent's number of employees, range of technical experience, fine tuned support software, and familiarity with corporate IT enable offices to avoid the pitfalls associated with exclusive reliance on smaller service organizations, individual freelance consultants, or limited in-house resources.

Progent adds value by offering:

Also, Progent applies no minimum fee and requires no monthly commitment for services provided during regular business hours.

  • Knowledge Transfer
    Progent practices knowledge transfer from Progent's consultants to clients.

Businesses who utilize familiar freelance consultants or who employ in-house support staffs benefit when Progent passes on information about critical technology and proven processes to make their IT environments more reliable, protected, and efficient.
