Advantages of Progent's IT Support for Offices in Alpharetta
Progent's online network troubleshooting services enable your Alpharetta company to realize the advantages of immediate, enterprise-class network support without the expense of managing an in-house IT organization. Your network will acquire greater strategic worth by being increasingly reliable, productive, and protected. Advantages to your business include:

  • Convenient virtual extension of your on-site support resources
    With most offices in Alpharetta and throughout Georgia, nearby computer support resources, whether consisting of independent consultants or a full-time maintenance staff, can deal with the majority of network problems. However, IT crises may occur when your regular support personnel are overstretched or unavailable, and some problems may be associated with IT products that is unfamiliar to your onsite support people. In these situations, Progent's on-call service experts offer a convenient, quick, and budget-friendly way to augment your local help and to transfer valuable information to increase your capability to deal with future problems in-house.

  • Less Reliance on Individual Service Providers
    For IT maintenance, smaller offices often rely on independent freelance consultants. Although freelance service people carry less overhead than larger support firms and can often charge marginally less, they are occasionally overbooked, making it impossible to respond quickly to crisis situations. If a freelance service provider is occupied with another customer, sick, on a trip, or in class, the absence of backup help may force your company to wait for help during an emergency. As your company grows, network downtime and trouble with vital software become more expensive. The money you thought you were saving on an independent can be consumed fast by lost productivity. Progent offers a reliable source of backup service expertise to make sure your IT system stays available.

  • Create a Scalable Basis for Smooth Growth
    Organizations often start with an information system implemented on a shoestring budget. Without a scalable framework, slap-dash repairs can get piled on top of a shaky foundation. When a network grows, reliability and scalability problems can impede the productivity of the business. Such badly designed systems require proper assessment, smart strategic planning, and broad-based technical expertise to upgrade to a network infrastructure able to provide the solid foundation to meet vital business requirements and ease downstream expansion.

  • Interact with Solution Providers Instead of Technology Vendors
    Smaller organizations need advice and technical education to navigate through an ever more complex maze of technology options capable of promoting business success and improving efficiency. They do not need a network engineer who is trying to earn a commission on a certain vendor's technology. Network consulting and product selling can result in a scenario where the proposed solution is built 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 match technical consulting with the best interests of customers.

How Is Progent Different from Other Service Organizations?
Progent is a Microsoft Partner support company and Progent's staff size, range of IT knowledge, fine tuned remote support tools, and understanding of corporate IT allow businesses to avoid the limitations associated with excessive reliance on smaller service organizations, independent freelance consultants, or over-stretched internal IT help.

Progent adds value by offering:

  • Proven Methodology

  • Value Pricing
    Progent's pricing model is to bill for phone support and in-person visits by the minute. Consequently, you are invoiced only for received support.

Also, Progent imposes no service activation fee and asks no retainer for support services provided during regular working hours. Many support organizations demand substantial minimum payments or charge for each fifteen minutes or longer. Progent's one-minute granularity avoids large invoices for fast fixes so you won't be tempted to permit less critical problems to stay unaddressed.

  • Full Records of IT Services
    Progent has developed a comprehensive service reporting system that stores and organizes detailed documentation for all billed services. Unlike some freelance consultants or small service organizations who offer scant documentation or details of tasks performed, every service delivered by Progent is accompanied by full documentation. Every Progent staff member has access to the support documentation transmitted by every staff member to every client. The practice of detailing and organizing service activity results in more effective service and eliminates a variety of common problems such as when a support client is virtually held hostage to a consultant who refuses to release vital service information.

  • Remote Network Monitoring with MS System Center Operations Manager
