Benefits of Progent's IT Support for Companies in Allentown
Progent's remote network troubleshooting services allow your Allentown organization to have the advantages of timely, enterprise-level IT support without the cost of managing an in-house IT organization. Your network will acquire added business value by becoming increasingly reliable, efficient, and protected. Benefits to your company include:

  • Seamless virtual expansion of your on-site IT resources
    For most organizations in Allentown and throughout Pennsylvania, nearby network service providers, whether consisting of outside consultants or a full-time IT staff, can deal with the majority of network issues. However, IT crises can spring up when your regular resources are too busy or absent, and some problems may involve technology that is unfamiliar to your local support people. In these instances, Progent's online support experts provide an easy, fast, and economical solution to augment your regular help and to pass on useful information to improve your capability to deal with downstream issues locally.

  • Reduced Reliance on Freelance Consultants
    For network maintenance, smaller organizations often rely on individual freelance service providers. Although freelance consultants carry smaller overhead than big support companies and can often charge marginally less, they are occasionally stretched too thin, making it impossible to respond rapidly to urgent situations. If a freelance service provider is occupied with another client, sick, on a trip, or in class, the lack of backup help may require your company to wait for assistance during an IT crisis. As your network grows, network unavailability and problems with vital applications are more costly. The budget you thought you were saving on an independent can be consumed quickly by reduced productivity. Progent provides a reliable source of reserve support expertise to make sure your IT system stays up and running.

  • Build a Scalable Basis for Seamless Growth
    Companies often start with an information system implemented on a shoestring budget. Lacking a proper framework, slap-dash repairs often get thrown on top of a weak foundation. When a network grows, stability and expandability problems can impede the productivity of the organization. Such badly designed systems need careful assessment, smart long-term planning, and broad-based IT expertise to upgrade to a system architecture that can deliver the stable foundation to meet vital business requirements and ease downstream growth.

  • Work with Solution Providers Rather Than Product Vendors
    Smaller companies need guidance and technical education to negotiate an increasingly complicated array of product options capable of promoting business success and improving efficiency. Businesses do not need a computer consultant who is motivated to earn a commission on a certain vendor's technology. IT consulting and product selling can lead to a scenario where the recommended solution is designed around a predetermined technology rather than the genuine needs of a business. Progent avoids these dilemmas by offering only services instead of products. This enables Progent to align IT consulting with the real interests of customers.

How Is Progent Unique from Other Support Firms?
Progent is a Microsoft Partner support company and Progent's staff size, range of IT knowledge, fine tuned remote support software, and understanding of enterprise networking allow offices to escape the pitfalls associated with excessive dependence on smaller service firms, individual freelance service providers, or limited internal resources.

  • Value Pricing
    Progent's pricing policy is to bill for online service and in-person help per minute. As a result, you are billed just for received services. Progent does not demand a more expensive rate for after-hours or emergency service, and within California or in regions where Progent provides on-premises support, Progent does not bill for travel time except for emergency calls where on-site work is less than 4 hours. Also, Progent applies no initialization charge and requires no monthly commitment for services delivered during normal working hours. Many support firms impose substantial minimum payments or charge for each quarter hour or longer. Progent's one-minute granularity does away with large invoices for fast solutions so you won't be tempted to permit minor problems to stay unaddressed.

  • Information Transfer
    Progent practices knowledge transfer from Progent's support experts to clients. By teaching customers to deal with technical issues that are within their comfort zone, Progent is able to concentrate on delivering high-value services where Progent has little competition.

  • Automated Network Monitoring with MS Operations Manager
    Progent is one of the only support firms to provide 24x7 remote tracking services based on MS System Center Operations Manager.
