What pricing structure does Progent use for support services?
Progent's convenient by-the-minute engagement model requires no complicated contracts, retainers or invisible charges for standard service. Many consultants have minimum charges or other extra expenses that increase service costs. For online service from Progent during normal business hours, you pay only for the documented hours devoted to working on your problem. If it only requires a quarter of an hour to fix your problem, then you are charged only for a quarter of an hour. For scheduled on-premises support service booked more than one day ahead, you are billed only for the time when a Progent consultant is actually at your location solving your network. No extra onsite surcharges or travel expenses. Just Progent's competitive by-the-minute billing rate.
