Advantages of Progent's IT Support for Companies in Tampa
Progent's online support services enable your Tampa business to enjoy the benefits of timely, enterprise-class network support without the expense of managing a full-time IT organization. Your network will acquire greater business worth by being increasingly available, productive, and protected. Benefits to your company include:

  • Convenient virtual expansion of your on-site support resources
    With most companies in Tampa and throughout Florida, nearby network service resources, whether made up of freelance consultants or an in-house maintenance staff, can solve the majority of technical problems. However, serious problems sometimes occur when your regular resources are overstretched or unavailable, and some trouble may involve IT products that is unfamiliar to your local service personnel. In these cases, Progent's online service experts offer an easy, quick, and budget-friendly solution to supplement your local help and to transfer valuable information to improve your ability to resolve future problems locally.

  • Reduced Reliance on Individual Service Providers
    For IT maintenance, smaller businesses commonly rely on individual freelance service providers. While independent consultants carry smaller internal costs than big support firms and can afford to charge lower rates, they are occasionally stretched too thin, making it hard to respond rapidly to urgent situations. If an independent consultant is busy with another customer, sick, on a trip, or in class, the absence of fallback help may require your company to wait for help during an IT crisis. As your network expands, system unavailability and trouble with critical applications become more expensive. The budget you thought you were conserving on a freelancer can be consumed quickly by reduced productivity. Progent provides an on-call source of backup service expertise to insure your IT system stays up and running.

  • Create a Scalable Foundation for Seamless Expansion
    Organizations typically begin with an information system created on a modest budget. Lacking a robust infrastructure, band-aid repairs often get piled onto a weak foundation. As a network grows, stability and expandability issues can hinder the success of the business. Such poorly designed systems require proper assessment, smart long-term planning, and broad-based technical knowledge to upgrade to a system infrastructure that can offer the solid foundation to meet critical business demands and ease future growth.

  • Work with Problem Solvers Rather Than Product Sellers
    Smaller organizations need advice and technical education to negotiate an ever more complicated array of technology alternatives capable of promoting business growth and improving efficiency. These companies hardly need a network engineer who is motivated to sell a specific vendor's technology. Network support and product selling can result in a situation where the proposed solution is designed around a predetermined technology rather than the genuine requirements of a business. Progent eliminates these conflicts of interest by selling only services rather than products. This allows Progent to align technical consulting with the best interests of clients.

What Makes Progent Different from Other Support Firms?
Progent is a Microsoft Gold Certified Partner support company and Progent's staff size, depth of technical background, refined remote support software, and familiarity with corporate IT allow companies to escape the pitfalls associated with excessive reliance on smaller consulting organizations, individual freelance consultants, or limited in-house resources.

Progent stands out by offering:

  • Proven Methodology
    Progentís team of Microsoft and Cisco qualified consultants average longer than ten years of real-world professional experience, at the front lines of network service, executing a broad range of IT tasks for a large array of customers.

This guarantees that you get not only world-class IT capability, but also a consultant with field-tested methods for applying computer knowledge to repair actual network problems rapidly.

  • Value Pricing
    Progent's pricing policy is to charge for online support and on-site help per minute. As a result, you pay just for delivered support. Progent does not demand a more expensive rate for off-hours or emergency service, and within California or in areas where Progent offers in-person service, Progent does not charge for travel except for urgent support where on-site time is less than four hours. Also, Progent applies no minimum charge and requires no monthly commitment for services delivered during normal working hours. Many service organizations demand large minimum payments or charge for every fifteen minutes or longer. Progent's one-minute granularity does away with big bills for quick repairs so you will not be forced to allow minor problems to stay unaddressed.

  • Information Transfer
    Progent practices knowledge transfer from Progent's support experts to customers. By teaching clients to handle technical issues that are within their scope, Progent is able to concentrate on offering high-value skills where Progent has few competitors. Businesses who utilize trusted freelance service providers or who maintain in-house IT staffs benefit when Progent transfers information about new technology and tested methodologies to make their IT environments more reliable, secure, and productive.
