Advantages of Progent's Network Help for Businesses in Akron
Progent's remote technical help services allow your Akron company to realize the advantages of timely, enterprise-grade network support without the expense of maintaining a full-time IT organization. Your network will acquire greater strategic value by being increasingly reliable, productive, and protected. Advantages to your business include:

  • Seamless virtual extension of your local IT resources
    For most businesses in Akron and throughout Ohio, local computer support resources, whether made up of independent consultants or an in-house IT staff, can resolve typical technical problems. However, IT crises might strike when local support personnel are too busy or unavailable, and some trouble may involve technology that is unfamiliar to your onsite service technicians. In these instances, Progent's online support professionals provide an easy, fast, and affordable solution to supplement your regular resources and to transfer valuable information to improve your ability to handle future problems locally.

  • Less Dependence on Individual Service Providers
    For network support, smaller organizations often rely on individual freelance consultants. Although independent service people carry less overhead than larger service firms and can afford to charge marginally less, they are occasionally stretched too thin, making it impossible to respond quickly to urgent situations. If an independent service provider is busy with another client, sick, on a trip, or in training, the absence of fallback help may require your business to wait for help during an emergency. As your network expands, system unavailability and problems with vital software are more expensive. The budget you thought you were saving on a freelancer can be consumed quickly by reduced productivity. Progent provides a reliable source of backup service experts to insure your IT system is always available.

  • Build a Solid Basis for Seamless Expansion
    Companies often start with an information architecture implemented on a modest budget. Without a robust infrastructure, slap-dash repairs often get thrown on top of a weak foundation. When a network grows, stability and scalability problems can impede the success of the business. Such poorly built systems need careful assessment, intelligent long-term planning, and extensive IT knowledge to evolve to a network infrastructure able to provide the solid foundation to meet current business requirements and facilitate downstream expansion.

  • Work with Problem Solvers Rather Than Technology Resellers
    Smaller offices need advice and technical training to navigate through an ever more complex maze of product options available for promoting business success and enhancing efficiency. Businesses do not need a network consultant who is trying to sell a certain vendor's products. IT consulting and product selling can lead to a situation where the proposed solution is built around a predetermined product rather than the genuine needs of a business. Progent eliminates these conflicts by offering only services rather than products. This allows Progent to match IT consulting with the real interests of customers.

How Is Progent Unique from Other Service Firms?
Progent is a Microsoft Gold Certified Partner consulting firm and Progent's staff size, breadth of technical expertise, fine tuned support tools, and familiarity with enterprise networking allow businesses to escape the pitfalls of exclusive reliance on smaller service firms, independent freelance service providers, or over-stretched internal resources.

Progent stands out by offering:

  • Proven Methodology
    Progentís staff of Microsoft and Cisco qualified consultants average more than a decade of hands-on professional experience, in the trenches of network service, performing a broad range of technical tasks for an extensive array of customers. Each Progent consultant shares a proven collection of personal best practices which are incorporated into company-wide leading practices training that Progent instills in its support personnel. This ensures that you get not just world-class IT skills, but also a support engineer with field-tested methods for applying computer knowledge to resolve real-world IT problems rapidly.

  • Value Pricing
    Progent's pricing model is to charge for phone support and in-person help by the minute. Consequently, you are invoiced only for received support. Progent does not demand a higher rate for after-hours or priority support, and within California or in areas where Progent provides on-site service, Progent does not charge for travel time except for urgent support where on-site work is less than four hours. Also, Progent imposes no startup fee and asks no retainer for services delivered during normal business hours. Many support organizations demand large minimum fees or charge for every quarter hour or longer. Progent's one-minute granularity avoids big bills for fast repairs so you won't be tempted to permit less critical problems to stay unaddressed.

  • Complete Documentation of Delivered Services
    Progent has created a sophisticated support reporting system that stores and formats complete documentation for all billed services. Unlike some freelance consultants or local support firms who provide minimal documentation or details of tasks performed, each service delivered by Progent is tracked by comprehensive documentation. Every Progent consultant has use of the support reports transmitted by every staff member to each client. The practice of documenting and organizing service records allows more effective service and avoids a slew of typical problems such as when a service customer is effectively held captive to a consultant who wonít release vital service information.

  • 24x7 Server Monitoring with MS Operations Manager
    Progent is one of the few consulting companies to offer 24x7 remote monitoring services powered by MS System Center Operations Manager. Microsoft Operations Manager allows your computer support to be proactive rather than reactive. By uncovering possible issues before they cause lost productivity, network monitoring can keep your information network from stressful and expensive availability losses.
