Benefits of Progent's Network Help for Organizations in Scottsdale
Progent's online IT consulting services enable your Scottsdale organization to have the benefits of timely, enterprise-level network support without the expense of managing an in-house IT organization. Your information system will acquire added business value by becoming more available, efficient, and protected. Benefits to your business include:

  • Seamless remote expansion of your local support resources
    With most offices in Scottsdale or anywhere in Arizona, nearby network support providers, whether consisting of freelance consultants or an in-house IT staff, can solve the majority of network issues. However, major troubles can strike when local support personnel are too busy or absent, and some trouble may stem from IT products that is beyond the scope of your usual service people. In these instances, Progent's on-call support experts offer an easy, quick, and budget-friendly solution to supplement your regular resources and to convey useful information to increase your capability to resolve downstream problems in-house.

  • Reduced Reliance on Individual Consultants
    For IT support, smaller organizations commonly rely on individual freelance service providers. While freelance consultants have less overhead than big consulting companies and can afford to charge lower rates, they are occasionally overbooked, making it hard to respond quickly to urgent situations. If a freelance service provider is occupied with another customer, ill, on vacation, or in training, the lack of reserve help may require your company to wait for help during an emergency. As your network expands, system unavailability and problems with critical applications become more costly. The budget you thought you were conserving on a freelancer can be eaten up fast by lost productivity. Progent provides an on-call source of reserve support expertise to insure your network remains up and running.

  • Create a Solid Basis for Smooth Growth
    Organizations often begin with an IT architecture created on a modest budget. Without a proper framework, slap-dash fixes often get piled on top of a weak foundation. As a company grows, stability and scalability issues can impede the success of the organization. These badly built systems need careful assessment, intelligent long-term planning, and broad-based technical knowledge to upgrade to a network infrastructure able to deliver the stable foundation to handle current business requirements and ease future growth.

  • Interact with Solution Providers Rather Than Technology Vendors
    Smaller businesses require guidance and technical training to navigate through an ever more complex array of product options available for accelerating business success and improving productivity. These companies do not need a network consultant who is attempting to resell a certain vendor's technology. IT consulting and product selling can result in a situation where the recommended solution is designed around a profitable product rather than the true needs of a client. Progent eliminates these conflicts of interest by selling just services rather than products. This allows Progent to match IT expertise with the real needs of customers.

What Makes Progent Unique from Other Support Firms?
Progent is a Microsoft Partner consulting firm and Progent's number of employees, depth of technical expertise, refined remote support tools, and familiarity with enterprise networking enable companies to avoid the pitfalls of excessive reliance on smaller consulting organizations, independent freelance consultants, or over-stretched in-house IT help.

  • Full Records of IT Services

Each Progent consultant has access to the support reports sent by every consultant to each customer. The discipline of documenting and archiving service activity results in more effective service and avoids a slew of typical misfortunes such as when a service client is virtually held captive to a consultant who refuses to let go of the keys to the kingdom.

  • Automated Network Monitoring with MS Operations Manager
    Progent is one of the only support companies to offer round-the-clock remote monitoring services powered by MS System Center Operations Manager.
