Advantages of Progent's IT Support for Offices in Southfield
Progent's online network troubleshooting services allow your Southfield company to realize the advantages of on-call, enterprise-class IT support without the cost of maintaining an in-house IT organization. Your network will derive greater strategic value by being more reliable, productive, and protected. Advantages to your company include:

  • Convenient virtual extension of your local support resources
    For most offices in Southfield and throughout Michigan, local computer service resources, whether made up of outside consultants or a full-time IT staff, can take care of the majority of technical problems. However, major troubles sometimes spring up when your regular resources are too busy or absent, and some trouble may be associated with IT products that is beyond the scope of your usual service personnel. In these cases, Progent's online service specialists provide a convenient, quick, and economical solution to supplement your local help and to convey useful knowledge to improve your capability to handle downstream issues locally.

  • Less Reliance on Freelance Service Providers
    For network maintenance, smaller businesses commonly depend on individual freelance consultants. While independent consultants have smaller internal costs than larger service companies and can afford to charge lower rates, they are often overextended, making it impossible to respond quickly to urgent situations. If a freelance service provider is busy with another customer, sick, on vacation, or in class, the absence of reserve personnel may force your business to wait for assistance during an IT crisis. As your network grows, system downtime and problems with critical applications become more expensive. The budget you thought you were saving on a freelancer can be eaten up quickly by reduced productivity. Progent offers a reliable source of reserve support experts to make sure your IT system is always up and running.

  • Build a Scalable Foundation for Smooth Expansion
    Businesses typically begin with an IT system implemented on a modest budget. Without a scalable framework, band-aid repairs can get thrown onto a weak foundation. When a network grows, stability and expandability problems can hinder the productivity of the organization. Such badly designed environments require careful analysis, intelligent long-term planning, and extensive technical expertise to evolve to a network infrastructure that can deliver the stable foundation to meet critical business demands and simplify downstream growth.

  • Work with Problem Solvers Rather Than Technology Vendors
    Smaller organizations require guidance and technical education to navigate through an increasingly complicated maze of product options capable of accelerating business success and enhancing productivity. They do not need a network engineer who is attempting to resell a certain vendor's technology. IT support and product sales can lead to a scenario where the proposed solution is built around a profitable technology rather than the genuine needs of a client. Progent eliminates these conflicts by offering just services rather than products. This allows Progent to align technical expertise with the best interests of clients.

How Is Progent Different from Other Service Firms?
Progent is a Microsoft Certified Partner consulting firm and Progent's staff size, range of technical experience, refined remote support tools, and familiarity with enterprise networking enable businesses to escape the pitfalls of excessive dependence on smaller service organizations, individual freelance consultants, or limited internal IT help.
