For remote support during normal working hours, you only pay for the time spent resolving your issue. If it only requires ten minutes to resolve your issue, then you are only billed for ten minutes. For regularly scheduled onsite service work booked more than twenty-four hours in advance, you are charged exclusively for the time when Progent's team member is actually onsite solving your problems. Just Progent's competitive per-minute rate. For urgent same-day on-site service calls, you may be charged for our expertís travel time, but never an increased emergency rate.
