Benefits of Progent's Network Help for Organizations in Shreveport
Progent's online network troubleshooting services enable your Shreveport organization to experience the benefits of timely, enterprise-class network support without the expense of maintaining a full-time IT staff. Your information system will derive greater strategic value by becoming more reliable, efficient, and secure. Benefits to your company include:

  • Convenient remote extension of your on-site support resources
    With most businesses in Shreveport and throughout Louisiana, local network service providers, whether represented by outside consultants or an in-house IT staff, can deal with the majority of network problems. However, serious problems can occur when local support personnel are overstretched or unavailable, and some problems may be associated with IT products that is beyond the scope of your onsite support personnel. In these cases, Progent's online service professionals offer a convenient, quick, and budget-friendly solution to supplement your regular help and to transfer useful knowledge to increase your ability to handle future problems locally.

  • Reduced Reliance on Freelance Consultants
    For network support, smaller offices often depend on independent freelance service providers. While independent consultants carry smaller overhead than larger consulting organizations and can afford to charge marginally less, they are occasionally overbooked, making it impossible to respond quickly to urgent situations. If a freelance consultant is busy with another client, sick, on a trip, or in training, the lack of backup personnel may force your business to wait for assistance during an emergency. As your business grows, network downtime and trouble with vital applications become more expensive. The budget you thought you were saving on a freelancer can be eaten up fast by lost productivity. Progent provides a ready source of backup service expertise to make sure your IT system is always available.

  • Create a Solid Basis for Smooth Expansion
    Companies typically start with an IT system implemented on a modest budget. Lacking a scalable infrastructure, band-aid fixes often get piled onto a weak foundation. As a network grows, stability and expandability problems can impede the productivity of the business. Such poorly built environments require proper analysis, smart strategic planning, and wide technical expertise to upgrade to a network architecture that can deliver the stable foundation to meet critical business demands and simplify downstream growth.

  • Work with Solution Providers Instead of Technology Resellers
    Smaller organizations need advice and technical training to navigate through an increasingly complex maze of product alternatives available for promoting business growth and enhancing productivity. These companies do not need a network consultant who is motivated to earn a commission on a specific vendor's technology. IT consulting and product sales can lead to a situation where the recommended solution is designed around a predetermined technology rather than the true requirements of a client. Progent eliminates these dilemmas by selling just services rather than products. This enables Progent to match technical expertise with the best interests of clients.

How Is Progent Unique from Other Service Firms?
Progent is a Microsoft Certified Partner consulting company and Progent's head count, breadth of IT background, fine tuned remote support tools, and familiarity with corporate IT allow companies to avoid the pitfalls associated with exclusive dependence on smaller consulting firms, independent freelance consultants, or over-stretched in-house resources.
