Advantages of Progent's IT Support for Offices in Reno
Progent's remote IT consulting services allow your Reno organization to have the benefits of on-call, enterprise-class network support without the expense of maintaining an in-house IT staff. Your network will derive added strategic worth by being more available, efficient, and secure. Advantages to your business include:

  • Seamless remote extension of your local IT resources
    With most organizations in Reno and throughout Nevada, local computer service providers, whether consisting of freelance consultants or a full-time maintenance staff, can take care of typical technical problems. On the other hand, IT crises may strike when local resources are too busy or unavailable, and some trouble may stem from IT products that is unfamiliar to your usual service people. In these instances, Progent's online service experts provide an easy, quick, and budget-friendly solution to augment your local help and to pass on useful knowledge to increase your ability to handle downstream issues in-house.

  • Less Dependence on Individual Consultants
    For network support, smaller companies often depend on individual freelance consultants. While independent service people have smaller internal costs than big service firms and can afford to charge lower rates, they are often overextended, making it difficult to respond quickly to urgent situations. If an independent service provider is busy with another customer, sick, on a trip, or in training, the absence of backup help may require your business to go without help during an IT crisis. As your company grows, system downtime and problems with vital software become more expensive. The money you thought you were saving on a freelancer can be eaten up fast by reduced productivity. Progent provides an on-call source of reserve service expertise to make sure your network stays available.

  • Build a Scalable Basis for Seamless Expansion
    Companies typically start with an IT architecture implemented on a modest budget. Lacking a scalable infrastructure, slap-dash repairs often get piled on top of an unstable foundation. As a company grows, reliability and expandability issues can impede the productivity of the business. These poorly built environments need careful assessment, intelligent strategic planning, and broad-based IT expertise to upgrade to a network infrastructure able to deliver the stable foundation to handle vital business demands and simplify future growth.

  • Work with Solution Providers Rather Than Technology Resellers
    Smaller businesses need advice and technical education to negotiate an ever more complex maze of technology options capable of accelerating business success and improving efficiency. Businesses do not need a network engineer who is motivated to earn a commission on a certain vendor's technology. Network support and product selling can lead to a scenario where the proposed solution is built around a predetermined product instead of the genuine needs of a business. Progent eliminates these conflicts of interest by selling only services rather than products. This enables Progent to match IT consulting with the real needs of customers.

What Makes Progent Unique from Other Service Organizations?
Progent is a Microsoft Partner consulting company and Progent's staff size, breadth of technical knowledge, refined support tools, and understanding of corporate IT enable businesses to escape the limitations associated with excessive reliance on smaller service firms, independent freelance service providers, or limited internal IT help.
