Advantages of Progent's Network Help for Organizations in Wichita
Progent's remote technical help services allow your Wichita business to enjoy the advantages of timely, expert IT support without the expense of maintaining an in-house IT organization. Your network will derive added business value by being more reliable, productive, and secure. Advantages to your company include:

  • Seamless remote expansion of your on-site IT resources
    For most companies in Wichita or anywhere in Kansas, nearby network service providers, whether represented by outside consultants or a full-time IT staff, can deal with typical technical issues. On the other hand, major troubles sometimes occur when local resources are overstretched or unavailable, and some problems may be associated with technology that is beyond the scope of your local support technicians. In these cases, Progent's online support specialists offer an easy, quick, and economical solution to supplement your regular resources and to convey valuable information to increase your ability to resolve downstream issues in-house.

  • Reduced Reliance on Individual Service Providers
    For network maintenance, smaller offices commonly rely on individual freelance service providers. Although freelance service people carry smaller overhead than larger support firms and can afford to charge lower rates, they are often stretched too thin, making it difficult to respond rapidly to urgent situations. If a freelance consultant is occupied with another client, sick, on vacation, or in training, the lack of reserve personnel may require your business to wait for assistance during an emergency. As your company grows, system downtime and problems with vital software are more costly. The budget you thought you were conserving on a freelancer can be consumed fast by lost productivity. Progent offers a dependable source of backup support experts to make sure your network remains available.

  • Create a Solid Basis for Seamless Expansion
    Companies typically start with an IT architecture implemented on a shoestring budget. Without a scalable infrastructure, band-aid repairs can get thrown on top of a weak foundation. When a network grows, stability and expandability problems can impede the success of the organization. Such poorly built systems require careful assessment, smart long-term planning, and extensive IT knowledge to evolve to a network infrastructure able to provide the stable foundation to handle current business demands and simplify future growth.

  • Interact with Solution Providers Rather Than Product Resellers
    Smaller offices require advice and technical education to navigate through an ever more complex maze of technology alternatives capable of accelerating business growth and improving productivity. They hardly need a network engineer who is motivated to resell a certain vendor's technology. Network support and product sales can lead to a scenario where the proposed solution is built around a profitable product instead of the true requirements of a client. Progent avoids these dilemmas by selling just services rather than products. This enables Progent to align technical expertise with the best needs of clients.

How Is Progent Unique from Other Support Organizations?
Progent is a Microsoft Certified Partner consulting firm and Progent's number of employees, range of technical expertise, fine tuned support tools, and familiarity with enterprise networking enable offices to avoid the limitations associated with excessive dependence on smaller consulting organizations, independent freelance consultants, or limited internal resources.
