Benefits of Progent's Network Help for Organizations in Southlake
Progent's remote support services allow your Southlake business to enjoy the benefits of immediate, enterprise-grade IT support without the expense of managing a full-time IT organization. Your information system will derive added business worth by becoming increasingly reliable, productive, and protected. Benefits to your business include:

  • Convenient virtual expansion of your local IT resources
    For most organizations in Southlake or anywhere in Texas, nearby computer service providers, whether consisting of freelance consultants or an internal IT staff, can solve the majority of network problems. However, IT crises can occur when local resources are overstretched or unavailable, and some trouble may be associated with IT products that is unfamiliar to your usual support technicians. In these instances, Progent's online service specialists provide a convenient, quick, and affordable solution to augment your regular help and to transfer valuable knowledge to improve your capability to resolve downstream problems locally.

  • Less Dependence on Individual Service Providers
    For network support, smaller businesses often rely on individual freelance service providers. Although independent consultants carry less overhead than larger support companies and can afford to charge lower rates, they are sometimes overbooked, making it impossible to respond quickly to crisis situations. If a freelance service provider is busy with another customer, ill, on a trip, or in class, the lack of fallback personnel may require your business to go without assistance during an IT crisis. As your network expands, network unavailability and trouble with vital software become more expensive. The budget you thought you were saving on a freelancer can be consumed fast by reduced productivity. Progent offers a dependable source of reserve service experts to make sure your IT system remains available.

  • Build a Solid Basis for Seamless Growth
    Companies typically begin with an information system created on a modest budget. Lacking a proper infrastructure, slap-dash fixes can get piled onto a shaky foundation. When a company grows, reliability and scalability issues can impede the success of the organization. These poorly built systems require proper analysis, intelligent long-term planning, and extensive technical knowledge to evolve to a system infrastructure able to deliver the solid foundation to meet vital business demands and facilitate downstream expansion.

  • Work with Problem Solvers Rather Than Technology Sellers
    Smaller companies need guidance and technical education to negotiate an increasingly complicated maze of product alternatives available for promoting business growth and improving productivity. They do not need a computer consultant who is attempting to resell a certain vendor's products. IT consulting and product selling can lead to a situation where the proposed solution is built around a profitable product rather than the true needs of a business. Progent eliminates these conflicts of interest by selling only services rather than products. This enables Progent to align IT expertise with the real needs of customers.

What Makes Progent Different from Other Service Firms?
Progent is a Microsoft Partner consulting company and Progent's number of employees, depth of technical expertise, refined support tools, and understanding of enterprise networking enable businesses to escape the pitfalls associated with exclusive dependence on smaller service firms, individual freelance service providers, or over-stretched in-house IT help.

  • Information Transfer
    Progent is committed to knowledge transfer from Progent's support experts to clients.
