Advantages of Progent's IT Support for Organizations in Alexandria
Progent's remote IT consulting services enable your Alexandria business to experience the advantages of on-call, enterprise-level IT support without the expense of maintaining a full-time IT organization. Your network will derive added strategic worth by becoming more available, productive, and protected. Advantages to your company include:

  • Seamless virtual expansion of your on-site support resources
    For most companies in Alexandria or anywhere in Virginia, local computer service resources, whether consisting of outside consultants or an in-house maintenance staff, can solve typical technical issues. On the other hand, major troubles sometimes spring up when your regular support personnel are too busy or absent, and some problems may involve technology that is beyond the scope of your onsite service personnel. In these instances, Progent's online service professionals offer an easy, quick, and economical way to augment your regular resources and to convey valuable knowledge to improve your capability to resolve future issues locally.

  • Less Dependence on Individual Consultants
    For IT maintenance, smaller organizations often rely on independent freelance consultants. While freelance service people carry smaller overhead than big support organizations and can afford to charge lower rates, they are often stretched too thin, making it impossible to respond rapidly to urgent situations. If a freelance consultant is busy with another customer, sick, on a trip, or in training, the lack of reserve help may require your business to wait for help during an IT crisis. As your business expands, network downtime and trouble with vital applications are more costly. The budget you thought you were conserving on a freelancer can be eaten up quickly by reduced productivity. Progent offers a ready source of backup service expertise to insure your network is always up and running.

  • Create a Scalable Basis for Smooth Expansion
    Organizations typically begin with an IT system created on a shoestring budget. Without a proper infrastructure, slap-dash repairs can get thrown on top of an unstable foundation. As a company grows, reliability and scalability issues can hinder the productivity of the organization. These poorly designed environments need proper assessment, smart strategic planning, and broad-based IT knowledge to evolve to a system infrastructure able to deliver the solid foundation to meet vital business demands and simplify future expansion.

  • Interact with Problem Solvers Rather Than Technology Vendors
    Smaller offices require guidance and technical education to negotiate an ever more complex maze of technology options available for promoting business success and enhancing productivity. These companies hardly need a network consultant who is motivated to sell a certain vendor's technology. Network consulting and product selling can lead to a situation where the proposed solution is designed around a profitable technology instead of the true requirements of a client. Progent eliminates these conflicts of interest by offering just services instead of products. This enables Progent to align technical expertise with the real interests of customers.

What Makes Progent Unique from Other Support Firms?
Progent is a Microsoft Certified Partner consulting firm and Progent's staff size, range of IT experience, fine tuned remote support software, and familiarity with corporate IT allow businesses to avoid the limitations of excessive dependence on smaller service firms, individual freelance consultants, or limited internal resources.

Progent adds value by offering:

  • Proven Methodology

This guarantees that you get not just world-class technical capability, but also a support engineer with proven methods for applying technical knowledge to repair real-world IT problems rapidly.

  • Value Pricing
    Progent's pricing model is to bill for online service and on-site visits by the minute. As a result, you are invoiced only for received support. Progent does not demand a higher rate for off-hours or emergency service, and within California or in regions where Progent offers on-premises service, Progent does not bill for travel except for urgent support where on-site work is less than 4 hours. In addition, Progent applies no initialization fee and asks no monthly commitment for support services provided during regular working hours. Many support firms demand substantial minimum fees or charge for every quarter hour or longer. Progent's fine granularity eliminates large bills for fast fixes so you won't be forced to allow simple problems to fester.

  • Complete Documentation of Delivered Services
    Progent has created a comprehensive support reporting system that stores and formats detailed documentation for all delivered services. Unlike many independent consultants or local support firms who provide scant documentation or specifics of tasks performed, every service provided by Progent is accompanied by comprehensive documentation. Each Progent staff member has access to the service documentation sent by every staff member to every customer. The discipline of detailing and archiving service activity allows more effective support and eliminates a variety of common problems such as when a support client is virtually held captive to a consultant who wonít let go of the keys to the kingdom.

  • 24x7 Server Monitoring with MS System Center Operations Manager
    Progent is one of the only consulting companies to offer round-the-clock network tracking services powered by Microsoft Operations Manager. MS Operations Manager allows your network support to be anticipatory instead of reactive.
