Benefits of Progent's Network Help for Offices in Schaumburg
Progent's remote network troubleshooting services enable your Schaumburg business to experience the advantages of on-call, enterprise-grade IT support without the expense of maintaining a full-time IT staff. Your network will derive added strategic worth by becoming more reliable, efficient, and secure. Advantages to your business include:

  • Convenient virtual expansion of your local IT resources
    For most companies in Schaumburg or anywhere in Illinois, local network service resources, whether consisting of freelance consultants or an in-house IT staff, can take care of the majority of technical problems. However, serious problems can spring up when local support personnel are too busy or unavailable, and some trouble may stem from IT products that is unfamiliar to your usual support personnel. In these instances, Progent's online service experts offer an easy, fast, and economical way to augment your regular resources and to transfer useful knowledge to increase your capability to resolve future issues locally.

  • Reduced Dependence on Freelance Service Providers
    For IT support, smaller organizations often rely on individual freelance service providers. While freelance service people have less internal costs than big support companies and can afford to charge marginally less, they are occasionally overbooked, making it impossible to respond quickly to crisis situations. If a freelance service provider is occupied with another customer, ill, on vacation, or in class, the lack of reserve help may require your company to go without help during an IT crisis. As your company expands, system unavailability and problems with critical applications are more expensive. The money you thought you were conserving on a freelancer can be consumed fast by lost productivity. Progent provides a ready source of reserve service experts to make sure your network stays up and running.

  • Create a Solid Basis for Smooth Expansion
    Companies often start with an IT system created on a modest budget. Without a scalable infrastructure, band-aid repairs often get piled onto an unstable foundation. When a company grows, reliability and scalability issues can impede the success of the organization. Such poorly built environments need proper assessment, intelligent strategic planning, and extensive technical knowledge to evolve to a network architecture able to offer the stable foundation to handle critical business requirements and facilitate future expansion.

  • Interact with Problem Solvers Instead of Product Resellers
    Smaller organizations need advice and technical education to negotiate an increasingly complex array of technology options available for promoting business success and enhancing productivity. Businesses hardly need a computer engineer who is trying to earn a commission on a specific vendor's products. IT consulting and product selling can lead to a situation where the proposed solution is designed around a predetermined technology rather than the true requirements of a client. Progent eliminates these conflicts by selling just services instead of products. This allows Progent to align technical expertise with the real needs of customers.

What Makes Progent Different from Other Service Organizations?
Progent is a Microsoft Certified Partner support company and Progent's head count, breadth of IT experience, refined remote support tools, and familiarity with enterprise networking enable companies to avoid the limitations associated with exclusive reliance on smaller service firms, individual freelance consultants, or limited internal IT help.
