Advantages of Progent's Network Help for Companies in Augusta-Richmond County
Progent's online support services enable your Augusta-Richmond County business to experience the advantages of on-call, expert IT support without the expense of maintaining an in-house IT organization. Your network will acquire added business worth by being more available, efficient, and protected. Advantages to your company include:

  • Seamless virtual extension of your local support resources
    With most companies in Augusta-Richmond County and throughout Georgia, local network support resources, whether made up of independent consultants or an in-house maintenance staff, can take care of the majority of network problems. On the other hand, IT crises might occur when local resources are overstretched or unavailable, and some problems may involve IT products that is beyond the scope of your onsite support technicians. In these instances, Progent's on-call support professionals provide a convenient, quick, and affordable way to augment your local resources and to convey valuable knowledge to increase your capability to resolve future issues in-house.

  • Reduced Dependence on Individual Service Providers
    For IT support, smaller organizations often rely on individual freelance service providers. While independent service people carry less overhead than larger consulting companies and can often charge marginally less, they are sometimes overextended, making it difficult to respond rapidly to urgent situations. If an independent consultant is occupied with another client, sick, on vacation, or in class, the absence of fallback help may require your business to wait for assistance during an IT crisis. As your company expands, system downtime and problems with critical software are more costly. The money you thought you were saving on an independent can be eaten up quickly by lost productivity. Progent provides a ready source of reserve service expertise to insure your network stays available.

  • Build a Solid Foundation for Smooth Expansion
    Organizations typically start with an IT architecture created on a modest budget. Lacking a scalable infrastructure, slap-dash repairs often get thrown onto a weak foundation. As a network grows, reliability and scalability issues can hinder the productivity of the organization. Such badly built environments require careful analysis, intelligent strategic planning, and wide IT expertise to upgrade to a network infrastructure that can provide the solid foundation to handle vital business demands and simplify downstream growth.

  • Work with Solution Providers Instead of Technology Vendors
    Smaller businesses need advice and technical training to navigate through an increasingly complex maze of technology alternatives available for promoting business success and enhancing efficiency. These companies do not need a computer engineer who is motivated to resell a certain vendor's technology. Network consulting and product selling can result in a scenario where the recommended solution is designed around a predetermined technology rather than the genuine needs of a client. Progent eliminates these conflicts of interest by offering only services rather than products. This allows Progent to align technical consulting with the best needs of clients.

What Makes Progent Unique from Other Service Organizations?
Progent is a Microsoft Partner support company and Progent's number of employees, depth of technical expertise, fine tuned support tools, and understanding of corporate IT enable companies to avoid the limitations associated with excessive dependence on smaller service organizations, individual freelance consultants, or over-stretched internal resources.

Progent stands out by providing:

  • Proven Methodology
    Progentís team of Microsoft and Cisco Certified experts average longer than a decade of real-world professional background, in the trenches of IT support, executing a broad range of technical tasks for an extensive array of clients.

  • Value Pricing

Also, Progent imposes no service activation fee and asks no monthly commitment for services provided during regular working hours. Many support firms demand large minimum fees or charge for every quarter hour or longer. Progent's one-minute granularity eliminates big invoices for fast solutions so you won't be forced to permit simple problems to stay unaddressed.

  • Complete Records of IT Services
    Progent has created a sophisticated support reporting system that records and organizes detailed documentation for all delivered services. Unlike some independent consultants or small support firms who provide minimal documentation or specifics of tasks performed, every service delivered by Progent is accompanied by comprehensive documentation. Each Progent consultant has use of the service documentation transmitted by every staff member to each client. The practice of detailing and organizing support records results in more efficient service and eliminates a slew of common problems such as when a support client is virtually held captive to a consultant who refuses to release the keys to the kingdom.

  • Automated Network Monitoring with Microsoft System Center Operations Manager
    Progent is one of the only support companies to offer 24x7 system monitoring services based on MS Operations Manager.
