Benefits of Progent's Network Help for Businesses in Atlanta
Progent's online network troubleshooting services allow your Atlanta company to enjoy the benefits of on-call, expert IT support without the expense of maintaining an in-house IT staff. Your information system will derive added strategic value by being more available, productive, and protected. Benefits to your company include:

  • Seamless virtual expansion of your local IT resources
    With most companies in Atlanta and throughout Georgia, local computer service resources, whether consisting of outside consultants or an in-house maintenance staff, can solve the majority of network problems. However, serious problems can occur when your regular resources are too busy or absent, and some problems may involve technology that is unfamiliar to your onsite service technicians. In these situations, Progent's online support professionals provide an easy, quick, and budget-friendly solution to supplement your local help and to transfer valuable knowledge to improve your ability to resolve future problems locally.

  • Less Reliance on Individual Consultants
    For IT support, smaller offices often depend on individual freelance service providers. Although freelance consultants have less overhead than big service companies and can afford to charge marginally less, they are sometimes overbooked, making it impossible to respond rapidly to crisis situations. If a freelance consultant is busy with another customer, sick, on vacation, or in class, the absence of reserve help may force your company to go without help during an IT crisis. As your business grows, system unavailability and problems with critical applications are more costly. The money you thought you were conserving on an independent can be consumed quickly by reduced productivity. Progent provides an on-call source of reserve support experts to make sure your network remains up and running.

  • Build a Solid Basis for Smooth Growth
    Businesses typically begin with an IT system created on a shoestring budget. Without a scalable infrastructure, slap-dash repairs often get piled on top of a shaky foundation. When a network grows, stability and scalability problems can hinder the productivity of the business. Such badly designed systems require careful analysis, smart strategic planning, and wide IT knowledge to upgrade to a network architecture able to deliver the solid foundation to meet critical business demands and simplify downstream expansion.

  • Interact with Solution Providers Instead of Product Vendors
    Smaller offices require advice and technical education to navigate through an ever more complex maze of product options capable of accelerating business growth and improving productivity. They do not need a computer engineer who is motivated to resell a certain vendor's technology. Network consulting and product sales can lead to a scenario where the recommended solution is designed around a profitable technology rather than the genuine needs of a business. Progent avoids these conflicts of interest by offering just services instead of products. This allows Progent to align IT expertise with the best needs of customers.

How Is Progent Different from Other Support Firms?
Progent is a Microsoft Partner consulting firm and Progent's head count, depth of IT knowledge, fine tuned support software, and familiarity with corporate IT allow offices to avoid the limitations associated with exclusive reliance on smaller service organizations, independent freelance consultants, or over-stretched in-house resources.

Progent adds value by providing:

  • Best Practices
    Progentís staff of Microsoft and Cisco Premier Certified consultants average more than a decade of real-world professional experience, at the forefront of IT service, executing a wide range of technical projects for a large array of clients. Every Progent support professional shares a refined collection of personal best practices which are combined into shared leading practices training that Progent teaches its support team. This guarantees that you get not just world-class IT help, but also a support engineer with proven approaches for using technical knowledge to resolve actual IT problems rapidly.

  • Value Pricing
    Progent's pricing policy is to bill for online service and on-premises visits per minute. As a result, you pay just for received support. Progent does not impose a more expensive rate for after-hours or priority service, and inside California or in areas where Progent provides in-person service, Progent does not charge for travel time except for emergency calls where on-site work is less than 4 hours. In addition, Progent imposes no startup charge and asks no retainer for services delivered during regular business hours. Many support organizations impose substantial minimum payments or charge for every quarter hour or longer. Progent's one-minute granularity does away with big invoices for fast repairs so you will not be forced to permit minor problems to fester.

  • Full Documentation of Delivered Services
    Progent has developed a comprehensive support reporting system that records and formats detailed documentation for all billed support activities. Unlike some freelance consultants or local service organizations who offer scant documentation or details of tasks done, each service delivered by Progent is tracked by full documentation. Each Progent staff member has use of the support reports sent by each consultant to every customer. The discipline of documenting and organizing support records results in more effective service and avoids a variety of typical problems such as when a service customer is virtually held captive to a consultant who refuses to let go of vital service information.

  • Automated Network Monitoring with Microsoft Operations Manager
    Progent is one of the only consulting companies to offer round-the-clock remote monitoring services powered by Microsoft Operations Manager. Microsoft Operations Manager causes your computer support to be proactive instead of reactive. By anticipating possible issues before they cause lost productivity, network monitoring can save your information network from stressful and expensive service disruptions.
