For small office computer networks located in the state of Ohio, Progent's Microsoft and Cisco certified technical experts can deliver online assistance and troubleshooting to solve your network issues quickly and affordably. Progent has acquired enterprise-class expertise, sophisticated tools, and support knowledge bases to troubleshoot and repair network problems while avoiding the high cost and time delays associated with onsite service visits.

If your Ohio company is located beyond the larger urban areas such as Columbus, Cleveland, Cincinnati, Toledo, Akron, or Dayton, your nearby computer support options may be limited in skills, or unavailable during an emergency. This results in a office network that is unpredictable or causing productivity loss due to technical problems continuing for too long. Progentís group of network professionals average more than 12 years of real-world industry experience, in the trenches of network support, performing a large variety of technical tasks for a extensive range of clients. This means you get not only the technical know how needed for the job, but a professional with demonstrated methods for applying that expertise to provide cost effective network solutions.

The Progent Test Lab at the Herakles/QTS Internet Data Center
The Progent Test and Training Lab at the QTS Data Center in Sacramento can be used for testing line-of-business applications, developing cost-effective system upgrade methodologies, assessing and tuning performance, planning or validating disaster recovery strategies, mitigating compatibility issues, and establishing training environments for new technologies. For Progent clients who lack adequate internal resources to configure proper pilot systems, the lab cuts capital outlay and engineering risk and helps keep vital network initiatives on schedule.

Simple Engagement and Billing Structure
Progent's simple per-minute billing policy requires no complicated contracts, retainers or hidden charges. Many other support companies have minimum billable time or other additional charges that drive up support costs. For remote support during normal business hours, you only get billed for the actual time spent working on your problem. If it only requires ten minutes to solve your issue, then you are only billed for ten minutes. For advance scheduled on-site service work booked more than twenty-four hours in advance, you are billed exclusively for the time when Progent's expert is actually on premises solving your problems. Just Progent's value priced by-the-minute rate. For urgent same-day on-site service calls, you may be billed for our engineerís travel time, but not a higher emergency rate. Because Progent has a large pool of engineers located within the entire Northern California service territory, an available engineer is usually close by to help. Progent can in addition dispatch on-premises support to most zip codes in the U.S. within 24 hours of answering a service request. Progent's remote support group has provided help to small companies in every state (Refer to Progent's customer testimonials.)
