Traditional delivery of IT support services to small businesses is based on the efforts of a local on-site consultant on whom a client company relies for virtually all network assistance. This on-site model is fraught with problems due to the absence of a complementary remote support organization. Many issues that could be resolved immediately via a skilled team of remote support engineers are often unnecessarily prolonged while waiting for a local consultant to show up in person. The resulting losses in productivity are often compounded by a cost structure that typically requires minimum on-site charges that can turn a 10-minute problem into a 2-hour expense. Progent's business model of billing by the minute and charging only for service actually delivered allows Progent's remote support experts to solve hundreds of small problems daily at the lowest possible cost. Further, the confidence of having ready access to a large team of technical professionals opens the door to a new realm of powerful IT solutions that many small organizations might otherwise shy away from for fear of having inadequate support resources.
