Benefits of Progent's Network Help for Businesses in Anchorage
Progent's online network troubleshooting services allow your Anchorage business to enjoy the advantages of immediate, enterprise-grade network support without the cost of managing an in-house IT organization. Your information system will acquire greater business value by becoming more available, efficient, and secure. Benefits to your business include:

  • Convenient virtual expansion of your on-site support resources
    For most organizations in Anchorage and throughout Alaska, local network support providers, whether consisting of freelance consultants or an in-house maintenance staff, can solve typical technical issues. On the other hand, IT crises may strike when your regular support personnel are overstretched or unavailable, and some trouble may be associated with IT products that is beyond the scope of your local service technicians. In these instances, Progent's on-call service professionals offer an easy, fast, and affordable way to supplement your local help and to convey valuable information to increase your ability to handle downstream issues locally.

  • Less Dependence on Individual Consultants
    For network support, smaller businesses commonly depend on independent freelance consultants. Although independent consultants have smaller internal costs than big consulting firms and can often charge lower rates, they are often overbooked, making it difficult to respond quickly to crisis situations. If an independent consultant is occupied with another client, sick, on vacation, or in class, the lack of reserve personnel may force your company to go without help during an emergency. As your company expands, system downtime and trouble with critical applications become more costly. The money you thought you were saving on a freelancer can be consumed quickly by reduced productivity. Progent offers an on-call source of backup service expertise to insure your network stays available.

  • Build a Scalable Foundation for Smooth Expansion
    Businesses typically begin with an IT architecture created on a shoestring budget. Without a proper framework, slap-dash repairs often get piled on top of a weak foundation. When a company grows, reliability and scalability problems can impede the productivity of the business. These poorly designed systems need proper assessment, intelligent strategic planning, and broad-based technical knowledge to upgrade to a network infrastructure that can deliver the solid foundation to meet current business requirements and ease downstream growth.

  • Interact with Problem Solvers Rather Than Technology Vendors
    Smaller companies need advice and technical education to negotiate an ever more complicated array of product alternatives capable of accelerating business success and enhancing productivity. These companies do not need a computer consultant who is attempting to resell a specific vendor's technology. IT support and product sales can lead to a situation where the proposed solution is designed around a predetermined technology instead of the true requirements of a client. Progent avoids these dilemmas by offering just services rather than products. This allows Progent to match technical expertise with the best interests of clients.

How Is Progent Unique from Other Service Firms?
Progent is a Microsoft Partner consulting company and Progent's staff size, breadth of IT experience, refined remote support tools, and understanding of corporate IT allow offices to avoid the limitations associated with excessive reliance on smaller consulting firms, independent freelance consultants, or over-stretched in-house IT help.

Progent adds value by offering:

  • Proven Methodology
    Progentís staff of Microsoft and Cisco Certified experts average longer than a decade of real-world industry experience, at the front lines of IT service, executing a broad variety of technical tasks for an extensive array of businesses. Every Progent consultant shares a refined set of personal best practices which are combined into shared best practices standards that Progent teaches its consulting staff. This guarantees that you get not only world-class IT capability, but also a support engineer with proven approaches for applying technical knowledge to solve real-world network problems quickly.

  • Value Pricing
    Progent's pricing model is to charge for remote service and in-person visits per minute. As a result, you are invoiced only for delivered services. Progent does not demand a higher rate for off-hours or priority support, and within California or in areas 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. Also, Progent imposes no minimum charge and asks no retainer for support services provided during regular working hours. Many support firms impose large minimum payments or charge for every quarter hour or longer. Progent's one-minute granularity does away with big invoices for fast solutions so you won't be tempted to permit minor problems to stay unaddressed.

  • Complete Records of IT Services
    Progent has created a comprehensive support reporting system that records and organizes complete documentation for all delivered services. Unlike many independent consultants or small service organizations who provide minimal documentation or specifics of services performed, each service delivered by Progent is tracked by comprehensive documentation. Every Progent staff member has use of the support reports transmitted by every consultant to every client. The practice of detailing and organizing support activity allows more efficient service and eliminates a slew of common problems such as when a support customer is effectively held captive to a consultant who refuses to release the keys to the kingdom.

  • 24x7 Network Monitoring with Microsoft System Center Operations Manager
    Progent is one of the few support companies to offer round-the-clock network tracking services based on MS Operations Manager. MS System Center Operations Manager allows your network maintenance to be proactive rather than reactive. By anticipating potential problems before they cause downtime, system monitoring can save your IT network from painful and costly availability disruptions.
