Because of this, Progent's service reports are a vital aspect of Progent's policy of knowledge transfer to clients. Another benefit of Progent's service documentation policy is that your organization can more sensibly establish an in-house network services group if and when it appears to be more cost effective to do so.

  • Progent's simple by-the-minute billing model requires no complex contracts, retainers or hidden fees.

If it only takes ten minutes to solve your problem, then you are only billed for ten minutes. For regularly scheduled onsite service work booked more than 24 hours in advance, you pay only for the time when a Progent expert is actually onsite working on your issues. Just Progent's competitive by-the-minute rate. For emergency same-day onsite service calls, you might have to pay for our consultant's travel time, but not an increased emergency rate. Because Progent maintains a large pool of expert consultants located within the entire Northern California service territory, an available expert is usually close by to assist. Progent can also provide on-premises technical support to the majority of zip codes in the U.S. within 24 hours of receiving a service call.
