Benefits of Progent's Network Help for Offices in Boise
Progent's remote technical help services enable your Boise organization to have the advantages of on-call, enterprise-grade IT support without the expense of maintaining an in-house IT staff. Your information system will derive greater business value by becoming more available, productive, and protected. Advantages to your business include:

  • Seamless remote extension of your on-site IT resources
    With most organizations in Boise and throughout Idaho, nearby network service resources, whether represented by outside consultants or a full-time IT staff, can take care of the majority of technical issues. On the other hand, major troubles may spring up when local resources are too busy or unavailable, and some trouble may involve IT products that is beyond the scope of your local service people. In these instances, Progent's on-call support professionals offer a convenient, quick, and economical way to augment your regular resources and to transfer valuable knowledge to increase your ability to resolve downstream issues in-house.

  • Reduced Dependence on Individual Service Providers
    For network maintenance, smaller companies often rely on independent freelance service providers. While independent service people carry less overhead than larger service firms and can often charge marginally less, they are occasionally overbooked, making it hard to respond rapidly to urgent situations. If an independent service provider is occupied with another client, sick, on a trip, or in class, the absence of reserve help may force your company to go without help during an IT crisis. As your network grows, system downtime and trouble with vital software are more costly. The money you thought you were saving on an independent can be consumed quickly by lost productivity. Progent provides a ready source of reserve support expertise to insure your network remains up and running.

  • Build a Scalable Basis for Smooth Growth
    Companies typically start with an IT system implemented on a shoestring budget. Without a scalable infrastructure, slap-dash fixes often get thrown onto a shaky foundation. When a company grows, stability and expandability problems can impede the success of the business. Such poorly built environments require careful analysis, intelligent strategic planning, and broad-based IT knowledge to evolve to a network architecture that can provide the solid foundation to handle critical business demands and facilitate future expansion.

  • Work with Solution Providers Rather Than Technology Resellers
    Smaller offices need advice and technical training to navigate through an increasingly complicated array of technology alternatives capable of accelerating business success and improving efficiency. Businesses hardly need a network engineer who is motivated to earn a commission on a certain vendor's technology. Network consulting and product sales can lead to a situation where the proposed solution is built around a predetermined product rather than the true requirements of a client. Progent eliminates these conflicts by offering just services instead of products. This allows Progent to align IT consulting with the best needs of clients.

How Is Progent Unique from Other Service Organizations?
Progent is a Microsoft Certified Partner consulting firm and Progent's head count, depth of IT expertise, refined support tools, and familiarity with corporate IT allow companies to avoid the limitations of excessive reliance on smaller consulting firms, independent freelance consultants, or limited in-house IT help.

Progent adds value by providing:

  • Proven Methodology
    Progentís staff of Microsoft and Cisco certified experts average more than ten years of hands-on professional experience, at the front lines of network support, executing a wide range of technical tasks for an extensive mix of businesses.

This guarantees that you get not just expert IT help, but also a consultant with field-tested approaches for applying technical knowledge to resolve real-world network problems efficiently.

  • Value Pricing
    Progent's pricing model is to bill for phone service and on-site help per minute. As a result, you are charged only for delivered support. Progent does not demand a higher rate for off-hours or priority support, and inside California or in regions where Progent offers in-person service, Progent does not charge for travel time except for emergency calls where on-site work is less than 4 hours. In addition, Progent imposes no startup fee and asks no retainer for support services provided during normal working hours. Many service organizations impose large minimum fees or charge for every quarter hour or longer. Progent's fine granularity eliminates big bills for quick fixes so you won't be forced to permit simple problems to stay unaddressed.

  • Knowledge Transfer
    Progent practices knowledge transfer from Progent's support experts to customers. By teaching clients to resolve technical issues that are within their scope, Progent is able to focus on providing high-value skills where Progent has few competitors. Businesses who work with familiar independent service providers or who employ in-house IT staffs benefit when Progent passes on knowledge about critical technology and tested processes to make their networks more robust, protected, and efficient.

  • Automated Server Monitoring with Microsoft Operations Manager
    Progent is one of the only IT service firms to provide 24x7 system tracking services based on Microsoft Operations Manager. MS Operations Manager allows your network maintenance to be proactive rather than reactive.
