Benefits of Progent's Network Help for Offices in Augusta-Richmond County
Progent's online IT consulting services enable your Augusta-Richmond County business to experience the advantages of timely, expert IT support without the cost of maintaining a full-time IT organization. Your information system will acquire added strategic value by being more available, efficient, and secure. Advantages to your business include:
- Seamless remote expansion of your on-site support resources
For most offices in Augusta-Richmond County and throughout Georgia, local network support resources, whether made up of independent consultants or an in-house IT staff, can deal with the majority of technical issues. On the other hand, IT crises might occur when your regular support personnel are too busy or unavailable, and some trouble may be associated with technology that is beyond the scope of your usual support technicians. In these situations, Progent's on-call support specialists give you a convenient, quick, and affordable way to supplement your regular resources and to convey useful information to improve your ability to resolve downstream issues locally.
- Less Dependence on Freelance Service Providers
For IT maintenance, smaller organizations commonly rely on individual freelance consultants. Although freelance consultants carry less internal costs than larger support organizations and can afford to charge marginally less, they are often overextended, making it hard to respond quickly to urgent situations. If an independent consultant is busy with another client, ill, on vacation, or in class, the lack of backup personnel may force your company to go without assistance during an IT crisis. As your network grows, network downtime and trouble with vital software become more costly. The money you thought you were saving on an independent can be consumed quickly by reduced productivity. Progent provides a ready source of reserve support expertise to insure your IT system remains available.
- Create a Solid Basis for Seamless Growth
Businesses typically start with an information system created on a shoestring budget. Lacking a robust framework, band-aid repairs can get thrown onto a shaky foundation. When a network grows, reliability and scalability problems can impede the productivity of the organization. These poorly built environments need careful analysis, intelligent long-term planning, and broad-based technical knowledge to evolve to a system architecture that can deliver the solid foundation to meet vital business requirements and ease future growth.
- Work with Problem Solvers Rather Than Technology Sellers
Smaller offices need guidance and technical training to navigate through an increasingly complex array of technology options available for promoting business growth and enhancing efficiency. Businesses do not need a network consultant who is motivated to sell a certain vendor's products. IT support and product sales can result in a scenario where the recommended
solution is designed around a predetermined technology rather than the genuine requirements of a business. Progent eliminates these conflicts of interest by offering only services instead of products. This allows Progent to match technical consulting with the real needs of clients.
What Makes Progent Different from Other Support Firms?
Progent is a Microsoft Certified Partner support company and Progent's head count, depth of technical experience, refined remote support software, and familiarity with enterprise networking enable offices to avoid the limitations associated with exclusive reliance on smaller service firms, individual freelance consultants, or limited in-house IT help.
Progent adds value by providing:
How Does My Business Begin Receiving Online Network Support from Progent?
- Best Practices
Progentís staff of Microsoft and Cisco Certified consultants average longer than a decade of hands-on professional experience, at the front lines of network service, executing a wide range of technical tasks for an extensive array of businesses.

This ensures that you get not just expert IT help, but also a consultant with field-tested methods for using technical knowledge to fix actual network problems rapidly.
- Value Pricing
Progent's pricing policy is to charge for online support and on-premises help per minute. Consequently, you are charged just for received support. Progent does not impose a higher rate for off-hours or priority service, and inside California or in regions where Progent offers on-site support, Progent does not charge for travel except for urgent support where on-site time is less than 4 hours. Also, Progent applies no startup charge and requires no monthly commitment for services delivered during regular business hours. Many service organizations demand substantial minimum fees or charge for each quarter hour or longer. Progent's fine granularity eliminates large invoices for fast fixes so you will not be forced to permit simple problems to stay unaddressed.
- Full Documentation of IT Services
Progent has developed a sophisticated service reporting system that records and organizes complete documentation for all delivered services. Unlike many freelance consultants or local support firms who provide minimal documentation or specifics of services performed, every service provided by Progent is tracked by full documentation. Each Progent staff member has use of the service documentation transmitted by every consultant to every client. The discipline of documenting and organizing support records results in more effective service and avoids a slew of common misfortunes such as when a service customer is effectively held captive to a consultant who wonít release the keys to the kingdom.
- Remote Server Monitoring with MS Operations Manager
Progent is one of the few IT service firms to provide 24x7 network tracking services based on Microsoft System Center Operations Manager.
