Benefits of Progent's IT Support for Businesses in Addison
Progent's remote network troubleshooting services enable your Addison company to have the benefits of timely, expert IT support without the expense of maintaining an in-house IT organization. Your information system will derive added business value by becoming more reliable, productive, and secure. Advantages to your business include:

  • Convenient remote expansion of your local support resources
    For most organizations in Addison and throughout Texas, local network support providers, whether made up of independent consultants or a full-time IT staff, can solve the majority of network problems. On the other hand, major troubles can strike when local resources are overstretched or absent, and some trouble may involve technology that is beyond the scope of your usual support people. In these cases, Progent's online service specialists provide a convenient, fast, and economical solution to augment your local resources and to transfer useful information to improve your ability to deal with future problems locally.

  • Less Dependence on Individual Consultants
    For IT maintenance, smaller companies often rely on independent freelance service providers. Although freelance consultants carry less internal costs than big service companies and can afford to charge marginally less, they are sometimes overextended, making it impossible to respond quickly to crisis situations. If a freelance consultant is occupied with another customer, sick, on vacation, or in class, the lack of backup personnel may force your company to go without help during an emergency. As your company expands, network downtime and problems with vital software are more costly. The budget you thought you were saving on a freelancer can be consumed quickly by reduced productivity. Progent offers a dependable source of reserve service experts to insure your IT system is always up and running.

  • Create a Solid Foundation for Smooth Expansion
    Businesses typically start with an information architecture implemented on a shoestring budget. Lacking a strong infrastructure, band-aid repairs can get piled onto a shaky foundation. As a company grows, reliability and expandability issues can hinder the productivity of the business. These badly designed systems require proper assessment, smart long-term planning, and broad-based technical expertise to evolve to a system architecture able to deliver the stable foundation to handle vital business requirements and facilitate future growth.

  • Interact with Problem Solvers Rather Than Technology Resellers
    Smaller businesses require guidance and technical education to negotiate an ever more complex array of technology options available for accelerating business growth and enhancing efficiency. They do not need a computer engineer who is attempting to earn a commission on a certain vendor's technology. IT support and product sales can lead to a scenario where the recommended solution is designed around a profitable product rather than the true needs of a client. Progent eliminates these dilemmas by selling just services instead of products. This allows Progent to align technical expertise with the real interests of clients.

How Is Progent Different from Other Support Organizations?
Progent is a Microsoft Certified Partner support company and Progent's staff size, breadth of IT background, refined support software, and familiarity with corporate IT enable offices to avoid the limitations of excessive dependence on smaller consulting organizations, individual freelance consultants, or limited internal IT help.

Progent adds value by providing:

  • Proven Methodology
    Progentís staff of Microsoft and Cisco Certified consultants average longer than ten years of hands-on professional experience, at the forefront of network service, executing a wide variety of technical tasks for a large mix of clients. Every Progent support professional shares a proven set of personal best practices which are incorporated into shared best practices training that Progent teaches its support personnel. This ensures that you get not just expert technical capability, but also a support engineer with field-tested methods for using technical knowledge to solve actual network problems rapidly.

  • Value Pricing
    Progent's pricing policy is to bill for online support and on-site visits per minute. As a result, you pay only for received support. Progent does not demand a more expensive rate for after-hours or priority support, and within California or in regions where Progent offers on-premises service, Progent does not bill for travel time except for emergency support where on-site work is less than 4 hours. In addition, Progent applies no minimum fee and requires no retainer for services delivered during regular business hours. Many service organizations impose substantial minimum fees or charge for every fifteen minutes or longer. Progent's one-minute granularity does away with large invoices for quick fixes so you won't be tempted to allow simple problems to fester.

  • Complete Records of IT Services
    Progent has developed a sophisticated service reporting system that stores and organizes detailed documentation for all delivered services. Unlike many freelance consultants or local service organizations who offer minimal documentation or specifics of services done, each service delivered by Progent is tracked by comprehensive documentation. Each Progent consultant has use of the service documentation sent by each staff member to every client. The practice of detailing and organizing support records allows more efficient service and eliminates a variety of typical problems such as when a support customer is effectively held hostage to a consultant who refuses to release the keys to the kingdom.

  • 24x7 Network Monitoring with MS System Center Operations Manager
    Progent is one of the only consulting firms to provide round-the-clock network tracking services based on Microsoft System Center Operations Manager. Microsoft System Center Operations Manager allows your network maintenance to be anticipatory rather than reactive. By revealing potential problems before they cause downtime, network monitoring can save your information network from painful and costly availability losses.
