Benefits of Progent's IT Support for Businesses in Alpharetta
Progent's remote IT consulting services enable your Alpharetta company to realize the advantages of timely, enterprise-level IT support without the expense of maintaining a full-time IT staff. Your information system will acquire added strategic value by becoming more reliable, productive, and protected. Benefits to your business include:

  • Convenient remote extension of your on-site support resources
    With most organizations in Alpharetta or anywhere in Georgia, local network support resources, whether represented by freelance consultants or an internal maintenance staff, can handle typical technical issues. On the other hand, serious problems might occur when local support personnel are too busy or unavailable, and some trouble may stem from technology that is beyond the scope of your usual support personnel. In these instances, Progent's on-call service experts offer an easy, quick, and budget-friendly solution to augment your local help and to convey valuable information to increase your capability to resolve downstream problems locally.

  • Reduced Dependence on Individual Service Providers
    For IT maintenance, smaller businesses often rely on independent freelance consultants. Although independent service people carry smaller overhead than larger service companies and can afford to charge marginally less, they are occasionally overbooked, making it hard to respond rapidly to crisis situations. If an independent service provider is occupied with another client, sick, on a trip, or in training, the lack of fallback personnel may require your business to wait for assistance during an IT crisis. As your company expands, system downtime and trouble with vital software become more expensive. The budget you thought you were saving on an independent can be eaten up fast by lost productivity. Progent offers a reliable source of reserve service experts to make sure your network remains up and running.

  • Create a Scalable Basis for Seamless Expansion
    Companies often begin with an IT system implemented on a modest budget. Lacking a scalable framework, slap-dash repairs often get thrown onto a shaky foundation. When a company grows, reliability and scalability issues can hinder the success of the organization. These poorly built environments require careful assessment, smart long-term planning, and broad-based technical knowledge to upgrade to a network infrastructure that can provide the solid foundation to handle vital business demands and simplify future growth.

  • Interact with Problem Solvers Instead of Product Vendors
    Smaller companies require guidance and technical training to navigate through an ever more complicated array of technology options capable of accelerating business growth and enhancing efficiency. These companies hardly need a network consultant who is trying to sell a specific vendor's products. Network consulting and product selling can lead to a situation where the recommended solution is built around a predetermined product rather than the true needs of a business. Progent avoids these dilemmas by offering only services instead of products. This enables Progent to align IT consulting with the best needs of clients.

What Makes Progent Unique from Other Service Firms?
Progent is a Microsoft Partner consulting firm and Progent's number of employees, depth of IT background, fine tuned remote support tools, and understanding of corporate IT allow businesses to avoid the pitfalls associated with excessive reliance on smaller consulting firms, independent freelance consultants, or over-stretched in-house resources.

Progent stands out by providing:

  • Proven Methodology
    Progentís team of Microsoft and Cisco Certified consultants average longer than ten years of real-world industry background, in the trenches of IT support, performing a wide variety of IT projects for a large array of customers.

This means that you get not just world-class IT skills, but also a support engineer with field-tested methods for using computer knowledge to solve real-world network problems quickly.

  • Value Pricing
    Progent's pricing policy is to charge for phone support and on-premises visits by the minute. As a result, you are billed exclusively for delivered services. Progent does not demand a more expensive rate for after-hours or priority service, and within California or in regions where Progent offers on-premises service, Progent does not charge for travel time except for urgent support where on-site work is less than 4 hours. In addition, Progent applies no service activation fee and requires no retainer for services delivered during regular working hours. Many service organizations impose large minimum fees or charge for each quarter hour or longer. Progent's fine granularity eliminates big invoices for quick repairs so you will not be forced to permit less critical problems to stay unaddressed.

  • Knowledge Transfer
    Progent practices knowledge transfer from Progent's consultants to clients. By educating customers to handle problems that are within their scope, Progent can concentrate on offering hard-to-find skills where Progent has few competitors. Businesses who utilize familiar freelance consultants or who employ in-house IT staffs benefit when Progent passes on information about new technology and proven processes to make their networks more robust, secure, and efficient.

  • Automated Server Monitoring with MS System Center Operations Manager
    Progent is one of the only support companies to provide 24x7 system tracking services based on Microsoft System Center Operations Manager. Microsoft Operations Manager allows your network maintenance to be anticipatory rather than reactive. By anticipating potential issues before they result in downtime, network monitoring can save your information network from stressful and expensive service disruptions.
