Advantages of Progent's Network Help for Organizations in Albuquerque New Mexico
Progent's online network troubleshooting services enable your Albuquerque business to realize the benefits of immediate, world-class network support without the expense of managing an in-house IT organization. Your network will acquire added strategic worth by being more available, efficient, and protected. Benefits to your company include:
- Convenient virtual expansion of your on-site IT resources
For most organizations in Albuquerque New Mexico, nearby computer support providers, whether made up of independent consultants or an in-house IT staff, can solve typical network problems. However, serious problems sometimes occur when local resources are overstretched or unavailable, and some problems may stem from technology that is beyond the scope of your local support technicians. In these situations, Progent's online support specialists give you a convenient, quick, and economical way to augment your local resources and to convey useful knowledge to increase your capability to deal with downstream problems locally.
- Less Reliance on Freelance Service Providers
For network support, smaller businesses often rely on individual freelance service providers. While independent service people carry smaller internal costs than larger consulting organizations and can afford to charge lower rates, they are occasionally overbooked, making it difficult to respond rapidly to urgent situations. If a freelance service provider is busy with another customer, sick, on a trip, or in training, the absence of backup help may force your business to go without assistance during an emergency. As your network expands, system downtime and trouble with critical applications become more costly. The budget you thought you were saving on a freelancer can be eaten up quickly by lost productivity. Progent offers a ready source of backup support expertise to make sure your IT system is always available.
- Build a Scalable Basis for Smooth Growth
Organizations typically start with an IT system implemented on a shoestring budget. Without a robust framework, band-aid fixes can get piled on top of a shaky foundation. When a network grows, stability and expandability problems can hinder the productivity of the organization. These poorly designed systems need careful analysis, smart strategic planning, and wide IT expertise to upgrade to a network infrastructure that can deliver the solid foundation to handle vital business requirements and simplify downstream growth.
- Interact with Solution Providers Instead of Product Sellers
Smaller offices need guidance and technical training to navigate through an ever more complex maze of product alternatives available for accelerating business growth and enhancing efficiency. Businesses do not need a network engineer who is motivated to sell a certain vendor's products. IT support and product sales can result in a scenario where the recommended
solution is built around a predetermined technology rather than the true needs of a client. Progent eliminates these conflicts of interest by offering only services instead of products. This allows Progent to match IT consulting with the best needs of clients.
What Makes Progent Different from Other Support Organizations?
Progent is a Microsoft Partner consulting firm and Progent's head count, depth of IT background, refined remote support tools, and familiarity with corporate IT allow businesses to avoid the pitfalls associated with exclusive dependence on smaller service firms, individual freelance service providers, or over-stretched internal IT help.
Progent stands out by offering:
How Does My Business Begin Receiving Remote Technical Support from Progent?
- Best Practices
Progentís staff of Microsoft and Cisco Premier Certified experts average more than ten years of hands-on professional experience, at the forefront of IT service, executing a broad range of IT tasks for an extensive mix of clients.

This guarantees that you get not just world-class technical skills, but also a support engineer with proven methods for using computer knowledge to resolve real-world IT problems rapidly.
- Value Pricing
Progent's pricing policy is to bill for phone service and on-site help by the minute. As a result, you are charged exclusively for received support. Progent does not demand a higher rate for off-hours or priority support, and inside California or in regions where Progent provides on-site support, Progent does not charge for travel except for emergency support where on-site work is less than 4 hours. In addition, Progent imposes no initialization charge and asks no retainer for services delivered during regular working hours. Many service firms demand large minimum fees or charge for every quarter hour or longer. Progent's fine granularity eliminates big bills for quick solutions so you will not be tempted to permit minor problems to stay unaddressed.
- Complete Documentation of IT Services
Progent has developed a comprehensive service reporting system that stores and formats detailed documentation for all delivered services. Unlike many independent consultants or small support firms who provide minimal documentation or details of services performed, each service provided by Progent is tracked by comprehensive documentation. Every Progent staff member has access to the service documentation sent by every consultant to each client. The discipline of documenting and organizing service activity allows more effective service and avoids a slew of typical misfortunes such as when a service client is virtually held hostage to a consultant who refuses to release the keys to the kingdom.
- 24x7 Server Monitoring with MS System Center Operations Manager
Progent is one of the only support firms to offer round-the-clock remote monitoring services based on Microsoft Operations Manager. Microsoft System Center Operations Manager causes your computer support to be anticipatory rather than reactive. By anticipating possible problems before they cause lost productivity, system monitoring can keep your information network from stressful and expensive service disruptions.
