Advantages of Progent's IT Support for Offices in Austin
Progent's online technical help services allow your Austin company to realize the advantages of timely, world-class IT support without the expense of maintaining a full-time IT staff. Your information system will derive added strategic value by becoming increasingly available, productive, and protected. Benefits to your business include:

  • Seamless remote extension of your on-site support resources
    For most organizations in Austin and throughout Texas, nearby network service resources, whether consisting of outside consultants or an in-house IT staff, can resolve the majority of network issues. On the other hand, serious problems sometimes spring up when your regular resources are overstretched or unavailable, and some problems may be associated with technology that is beyond the scope of your local support people. In these instances, Progent's on-call support professionals provide a convenient, quick, and economical solution to augment your regular resources and to pass on useful information to improve your capability to resolve downstream problems in-house.

  • Reduced Reliance on Freelance Consultants
    For network maintenance, smaller businesses commonly depend on independent freelance service providers. While independent consultants have smaller internal costs than larger consulting firms and can often charge lower rates, they are often overbooked, making it hard to respond rapidly to urgent situations. If a freelance consultant is occupied with another customer, ill, on a trip, or in class, the absence of reserve help may force your business to wait for help during an IT crisis. As your network grows, network unavailability and trouble 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 dependable source of backup service expertise to make sure your IT system is always available.

  • Build a Scalable Basis for Smooth Growth
    Organizations often start with an information system created on a shoestring budget. Without a robust framework, slap-dash fixes can get thrown onto a weak foundation. When a company grows, reliability and scalability issues can impede the productivity of the organization. Such poorly designed systems need proper analysis, smart long-term planning, and wide IT knowledge to evolve to a network infrastructure that can offer the solid foundation to handle vital business requirements and simplify downstream expansion.

  • Work with Problem Solvers Rather Than Product Vendors
    Smaller organizations need guidance and technical education to negotiate an increasingly complicated array of product alternatives capable of accelerating business growth and enhancing productivity. They hardly need a computer consultant who is motivated to earn a commission on a specific vendor's products. IT support and product sales can result in a situation where the proposed solution is built around a profitable technology rather than the true needs of a business. Progent avoids these conflicts of interest by offering just services rather than products. This enables Progent to match IT consulting with the real needs of customers.

What Makes Progent Unique from Other Service Organizations?
Progent is a Microsoft Partner consulting company and Progent's staff size, range of technical experience, fine tuned remote support tools, and understanding of enterprise networking enable companies to avoid the limitations associated with exclusive reliance on smaller service firms, individual freelance service providers, or limited internal resources.

Progent adds value by offering:

  • Best Practices
    Progentís staff of Microsoft and Cisco Premier Certified experts average more than a decade of hands-on professional background, at the forefront of IT support, executing a broad range of technical projects for an extensive array of clients. Each Progent support professional shares a proven collection of personal best practices which are combined into shared leading practices standards that Progent instills in its support staff. This means that you get not only world-class IT help, but also a support engineer with proven methods for applying computer knowledge to repair real-world network problems rapidly.

  • Value Pricing
    Progent's pricing model is to charge for remote support and in-person visits per minute. As a result, you pay just for received services. Progent does not demand a more expensive rate for after-hours or priority service, and inside California or in regions where Progent offers in-person support, Progent does not charge for travel time except for emergency support where on-site time is less than 4 hours. Also, Progent applies no startup fee and asks no retainer for services provided during regular business hours. Many service firms demand large minimum fees or charge for each quarter hour or longer. Progent's one-minute granularity does away with large invoices for quick repairs so you won't be forced to allow minor problems to fester.

  • Knowledge Transfer
    Progent is committed to knowledge transfer from Progent's support experts to customers. By educating customers to resolve problems that are within their scope, Progent is able to concentrate on delivering hard-to-find services where Progent faces little competition. Businesses who utilize trusted independent consultants or who employ in-house support staffs benefit when Progent passes on knowledge about critical technology and tested methodologies to make their networks more reliable, secure, and productive.

  • Remote Server Monitoring with MS Operations Manager
    Progent is one of the only support firms to provide 24x7 system tracking services powered by MS Operations Manager. Microsoft Operations Manager allows your computer maintenance to be anticipatory rather than reactive. By revealing potential issues before they cause lost productivity, network monitoring can save your information network from painful and costly service losses.
