Benefits of Progent's Network Help for Offices in Norfolk
Progent's online network troubleshooting services allow your Norfolk company to realize the advantages of on-call, enterprise-class network support without the expense of maintaining an in-house IT staff. Your information system will acquire added strategic value by becoming increasingly available, productive, and secure. Advantages to your business include:

  • Convenient remote expansion of your on-site support resources
    With most companies in Norfolk and throughout Virginia, local network support resources, whether represented by freelance consultants or an in-house maintenance staff, can resolve the majority of technical issues. However, major troubles sometimes occur when local resources are overstretched or absent, and some problems may be associated with technology that is beyond the scope of your local support technicians. In these cases, Progent's on-call service experts offer a convenient, quick, and budget-friendly solution to augment your regular help and to transfer valuable information to increase your ability to handle future issues locally.

  • Less Dependence on Individual Consultants
    For IT maintenance, smaller businesses often depend on individual freelance service providers. While freelance service people carry smaller internal costs than larger consulting firms and can often charge marginally less, they are sometimes stretched too thin, making it hard to respond rapidly to crisis situations. If an independent consultant is occupied with another client, sick, on a trip, or in training, the absence of fallback help may force your company to wait for assistance during an IT crisis. As your company expands, system downtime and trouble with vital software are more costly. The money you thought you were saving on an independent can be eaten up quickly by lost productivity. Progent provides a reliable source of reserve service experts to make sure your network is always up and running.

  • Create a Solid Basis for Seamless Growth
    Businesses typically begin with an information architecture implemented on a modest budget. Lacking a scalable framework, band-aid fixes often get piled on top of a weak foundation. When a network grows, stability and scalability problems can hinder the productivity of the business. These badly designed environments require careful analysis, smart strategic planning, and extensive technical knowledge to evolve to a system infrastructure that can deliver the stable foundation to handle current business requirements and facilitate future growth.

  • Work with Solution Providers Instead of Product Vendors
    Smaller businesses require advice and technical education to negotiate an increasingly complicated array of product options capable of promoting business success and enhancing efficiency. They do not need a network engineer who is attempting to sell a certain vendor's technology. IT consulting and product selling can lead to a situation where the proposed solution is built around a profitable product rather than the true requirements of a client. Progent avoids these dilemmas by selling only services rather than products. This allows Progent to align IT expertise with the real interests of clients.

How Is Progent Unique from Other Service Firms?
Progent is a Microsoft Gold Partner consulting company and Progent's staff size, range of technical experience, refined remote support tools, and understanding of enterprise networking enable companies to avoid the limitations associated with excessive dependence on smaller service firms, individual freelance service providers, or over-stretched in-house resources.

Progent stands out by providing:

  • Proven Methodology
    Progentís staff of Microsoft and Cisco qualified consultants average longer than ten years of real-world professional background, at the front lines of network support, performing a broad range of technical tasks for a large array of clients. Every Progent support professional shares a refined set of personal best practices which are incorporated into shared best practices training that Progent instills in its consulting team. This means that you get not only world-class technical skills, but also a consultant with proven approaches for applying computer knowledge to fix real-world IT problems rapidly.

  • Value Pricing
    Progent's pricing model is to charge for online service and on-premises visits per minute. Consequently, you are billed just for received support. Progent does not demand a more expensive rate for off-hours or urgent service, and within California or in areas where Progent provides on-premises support, Progent does not charge for travel time except for urgent support where on-site work is less than 4 hours. Also, Progent applies no minimum fee and asks no monthly commitment for services delivered during regular business hours. Many support firms demand substantial minimum fees or charge for every fifteen minutes or longer. Progent's fine granularity avoids large invoices for quick solutions so you will not be tempted to permit less critical problems to fester.

  • Complete Documentation of Delivered Services
    Progent has developed a sophisticated support reporting system that records and formats complete documentation for all billed support activities. Unlike many independent consultants or local support organizations who offer scant documentation or details of tasks performed, every service delivered by Progent is accompanied by comprehensive documentation. Each Progent staff member has use of the support reports transmitted by every staff member to each client. The discipline of detailing and archiving service activity results in more efficient support and eliminates a variety of common problems such as when a support client is effectively held captive to a consultant who refuses to release the keys to the kingdom.

  • Automated Network Monitoring with Microsoft Operations Manager
    Progent is one of the only IT service companies to provide 24x7 system monitoring services based on Microsoft System Center Operations Manager. Microsoft System Center Operations Manager allows your computer maintenance to be anticipatory instead of reactive. By uncovering potential problems before they result in lost productivity, system monitoring can save your information network from painful and expensive availability losses.
