Benefits of Progent's Network Help for Businesses in Tacoma
Progent's remote technical help services allow your Tacoma business to realize the advantages of timely, enterprise-grade network support without the cost of maintaining an in-house IT organization. Your network will derive greater strategic value by being more available, productive, and protected. Advantages to your company include:

  • Convenient remote extension of your local IT resources
    For most companies in Tacoma or anywhere in Washington, nearby network service resources, whether represented by independent consultants or an internal maintenance staff, can deal with the majority of technical issues. On the other hand, major troubles might spring up when your regular resources are overstretched or unavailable, and some problems may stem from technology that is unfamiliar to your usual service personnel. In these cases, Progent's online support experts give you an easy, quick, and budget-friendly solution to supplement your regular help and to pass on valuable knowledge to improve your ability to resolve future problems in-house.

  • Reduced Reliance on Individual Service Providers
    For network maintenance, smaller offices often depend on individual freelance consultants. Although independent service people carry smaller overhead than big service organizations and can afford to charge marginally less, they are often overextended, making it impossible to respond quickly to urgent situations. If a freelance service provider is busy with another customer, ill, on a trip, or in class, the absence of backup help may require your business to go without help during an IT crisis. As your company expands, network unavailability and trouble with vital software become more costly. The money you thought you were conserving on an independent can be consumed fast by lost productivity. Progent offers a dependable source of backup support experts to insure your IT system stays up and running.

  • Build a Solid Foundation for Smooth Expansion
    Organizations often start with an information architecture created on a shoestring budget. Without a strong framework, slap-dash repairs can get thrown onto a shaky foundation. As a network grows, reliability and scalability issues can impede the success of the organization. These poorly designed environments require careful analysis, intelligent long-term planning, and extensive technical expertise to evolve to a network infrastructure that can provide the solid foundation to handle current business demands and ease future expansion.

  • Interact with Solution Providers Rather Than Technology Vendors
    Smaller offices need guidance and technical training to negotiate an increasingly complicated maze of product alternatives available for promoting business success and improving productivity. They do not need a network engineer who is attempting to sell a specific vendor's products. IT consulting and product selling can result in a scenario where the recommended solution is designed around a predetermined technology instead of the true needs of a business. Progent eliminates these conflicts by selling only services instead of products. This allows Progent to align IT consulting with the real needs of clients.

What Makes Progent Different from Other Support Organizations?
Progent is a Microsoft Certified Partner support company and Progent's head count, range of technical background, refined remote support tools, and understanding of corporate IT enable businesses to escape the pitfalls of exclusive dependence on smaller consulting organizations, individual freelance service providers, or over-stretched internal resources.

Progent stands out by providing:

  • Proven Methodology
    Progentís staff of Microsoft and Cisco qualified experts average more than a decade of hands-on industry background, at the front lines of network support, performing a wide variety of technical tasks for an extensive array of customers. Each Progent consultant shares a proven collection of personal best practices which are combined into shared best practices training that Progent teaches its support personnel. This ensures that you get not only expert IT help, but also a consultant with field-tested approaches for using computer knowledge to resolve real-world IT problems efficiently.

  • Value Pricing
    Progent's pricing model is to bill for online service and on-premises help by the minute. As a result, you are invoiced only for delivered services. Progent does not impose a more expensive rate for off-hours or priority service, and within California or in regions where Progent offers in-person service, Progent does not charge for travel except for emergency calls where on-site work is less than 4 hours. Also, Progent imposes no service activation fee and asks no monthly commitment for services provided during regular business hours. Many service firms demand large minimum fees or charge for each quarter hour or longer. Progent's fine granularity does away with large bills for fast repairs so you won't be forced to allow less critical problems to stay unaddressed.

  • Complete Records of Delivered Services
    Progent has developed a comprehensive service reporting system that stores and formats detailed documentation for all billed services. Unlike many independent consultants or small support organizations who offer minimal documentation or specifics of services performed, each service provided by Progent is tracked by comprehensive documentation. Every Progent consultant has use of the service documentation sent by each staff member to every client. The practice of detailing and organizing service activity allows more efficient service and avoids a slew of common problems such as when a service client is effectively held hostage to a consultant who refuses to let go of the keys to the kingdom.

  • Automated Server Monitoring with Microsoft Operations Manager
    Progent is one of the few IT service firms to provide round-the-clock remote monitoring services powered by MS System Center Operations Manager. MS Operations Manager allows your network support to be proactive rather than reactive. By revealing possible problems before they cause lost productivity, network monitoring can keep your IT network from painful and expensive service disruptions.
