Benefits of Progent's IT Support for Offices in Virginia Beach
Progent's online network troubleshooting services allow your Virginia Beach business to have the benefits of timely, world-class network support without the expense of managing a full-time IT organization. Your information system will derive greater strategic value by becoming more available, productive, and secure. Benefits to your business include:

  • Convenient remote extension of your local IT resources
    With most businesses in Virginia Beach and throughout Virginia, nearby network service providers, whether consisting of freelance consultants or an internal maintenance staff, can take care of typical technical problems. On the other hand, major troubles sometimes spring up when your regular support personnel are too busy or absent, and some problems may stem from technology that is beyond the scope of your onsite support personnel. In these cases, Progent's on-call service professionals offer an easy, quick, and affordable way to augment your regular help and to transfer useful information to improve your ability to handle downstream issues in-house.

  • Reduced Reliance on Freelance Service Providers
    For network support, smaller businesses often rely on independent freelance consultants. While independent service people have smaller overhead than big support firms and can often charge marginally less, they are occasionally overbooked, making it hard to respond quickly to crisis situations. If a freelance consultant is busy with another client, sick, on a trip, or in class, the absence of fallback help may force your company to go without help during an emergency. As your company grows, system unavailability and problems with vital applications are more expensive. The budget you thought you were saving on an independent can be consumed fast by lost productivity. Progent provides a dependable source of reserve support expertise to make sure your network stays available.

  • Build a Scalable Basis for Seamless Expansion
    Businesses often start with an information architecture implemented on a shoestring budget. Lacking a scalable infrastructure, band-aid fixes often get thrown on top of a shaky foundation. When a network grows, reliability and expandability issues can hinder the productivity of the organization. Such poorly designed systems need careful assessment, smart strategic planning, and broad-based technical knowledge to upgrade to a network architecture able to provide the solid foundation to meet current business demands and facilitate downstream growth.

  • Work with Solution Providers Instead of Technology Sellers
    Smaller offices need advice and technical education to navigate through an ever more complicated array of technology options available for promoting business success and improving productivity. Businesses hardly need a network consultant who is motivated to resell a specific vendor's technology. Network support and product selling can lead to a scenario where the recommended solution is designed around a profitable technology instead of the genuine needs of a business. Progent eliminates these conflicts by selling just services instead of products. This allows Progent to match technical consulting with the best needs of customers.

How Is Progent Different from Other Service Organizations?
Progent is a Microsoft Certified Partner consulting firm and Progent's head count, depth of technical knowledge, refined support tools, and familiarity with enterprise networking enable companies to escape the pitfalls of exclusive dependence on smaller consulting firms, independent freelance service providers, or over-stretched in-house resources.

  • Complete Records of IT Services
    Progent has created a sophisticated service reporting system that records and organizes complete documentation for all billed support activities. Unlike many independent consultants or small support firms who provide scant documentation or specifics of services done, each service delivered by Progent is accompanied by comprehensive documentation. Each Progent staff member has use of the service reports transmitted by every staff member to each customer. The discipline of detailing and archiving service activity allows more efficient support and eliminates a variety of typical misfortunes such as when a support client is effectively held hostage to a consultant who refuses to release vital service information.

  • 24x7 Network Monitoring with MS System Center Operations Manager
    Progent is one of the only IT service firms to offer 24x7 remote tracking services powered by MS Operations Manager.
