Advantages of Progent's IT Support for Companies in Sarasota
Progent's remote support services enable your Sarasota company to experience the advantages of timely, enterprise-class IT support without the cost of managing an in-house IT staff. Your network will derive greater strategic value by being increasingly reliable, efficient, and protected. Benefits to your business include:

  • Seamless virtual expansion of your local IT resources
    For most businesses in Sarasota or anywhere in Florida, nearby computer service resources, whether consisting of freelance consultants or an in-house maintenance staff, can solve the majority of network problems. On the other hand, IT crises might spring up when local support personnel are too busy or unavailable, and some problems may stem from technology that is beyond the scope of your usual support people. In these cases, Progent's online support professionals give you an easy, quick, and budget-friendly solution to supplement your regular resources and to convey useful knowledge to increase your capability to deal with downstream issues in-house.

  • Reduced Reliance on Freelance Service Providers
    For network maintenance, smaller businesses often depend on individual freelance consultants. Although freelance service people carry smaller internal costs than big support companies and can afford to charge marginally less, they are sometimes overbooked, making it hard to respond quickly to crisis situations. If a freelance consultant is busy with another customer, ill, on vacation, or in class, the absence of fallback personnel may require your company to go without help during an IT crisis. As your business expands, network unavailability and trouble with critical software are more costly. The budget you thought you were conserving on a freelancer can be eaten up fast by reduced productivity. Progent provides a reliable source of backup service experts to insure your network remains available.

  • Build a Scalable Basis for Seamless Expansion
    Businesses often begin with an information architecture created on a modest budget. Without a scalable framework, slap-dash fixes can get thrown onto an unstable foundation. As a network grows, stability and scalability issues can impede the success of the organization. These poorly designed environments need proper analysis, intelligent strategic planning, and extensive IT expertise to evolve to a system infrastructure able to offer the stable foundation to meet current business demands and ease downstream growth.

  • Work with Problem Solvers Instead of Technology Vendors
    Smaller offices require guidance and technical training to negotiate an ever more complicated array of product options capable of accelerating business success and improving efficiency. Businesses hardly need a computer consultant who is attempting to resell a certain vendor's products. IT consulting and product sales can result in a situation where the proposed solution is built around a profitable product rather than the genuine requirements of a business. Progent avoids these dilemmas by offering just services instead of products. This allows Progent to match technical consulting with the best interests of clients.

How Is Progent Different from Other Service Organizations?
Progent is a Microsoft Partner support company and Progent's number of employees, breadth of IT background, refined support tools, and understanding of enterprise networking allow offices to avoid the pitfalls of exclusive dependence on smaller service firms, independent freelance consultants, or limited internal resources.

Progent adds value by providing:

Also, Progent imposes no initialization fee and requires no monthly commitment for services provided during normal working hours.

Progent's one-minute granularity avoids big invoices for quick fixes so you won't be tempted to allow simple problems to fester.

  • Information Transfer
    Progent practices knowledge transfer from Progent's consultants to customers. By educating clients to deal with problems that are within their comfort zone, Progent is able to concentrate on providing high-value skills where Progent has little competition. Businesses who utilize trusted freelance consultants or who employ in-house IT staffs benefit when Progent transfers knowledge about critical technology and proven processes to make their networks more reliable, protected, and productive.
