Benefits of Progent's IT Support for Offices in Baton Rouge
Progent's online network troubleshooting services allow your Baton Rouge business to enjoy the benefits of on-call, enterprise-grade IT support without the expense of maintaining an in-house IT staff. Your network will acquire added business value by becoming more reliable, productive, and secure. Advantages to your company include:

  • Convenient remote extension of your local support resources
    With most companies in Baton Rouge or anywhere in Louisiana, local network support resources, whether consisting of independent consultants or an in-house maintenance staff, can solve typical network issues. On the other hand, major troubles sometimes strike when local support personnel are overstretched or absent, and some trouble may involve technology that is unfamiliar to your onsite support personnel. In these instances, Progent's on-call service specialists give you a convenient, fast, and economical solution to supplement your regular resources and to convey valuable information to increase your capability to resolve future issues in-house.

  • Less Reliance on Freelance Consultants
    For IT maintenance, smaller businesses commonly rely on individual freelance consultants. While freelance service people carry less internal costs than big service organizations and can afford to charge lower rates, they are occasionally stretched too thin, making it hard to respond quickly to urgent situations. If an independent consultant is occupied with another client, ill, on vacation, or in training, the lack of fallback help may require your company to wait for help during an emergency. As your network grows, system downtime and problems with vital applications become more costly. The budget you thought you were conserving on an independent can be consumed fast by lost productivity. Progent provides a dependable source of reserve service experts to make sure your network remains up and running.

  • Create a Scalable Basis for Smooth Expansion
    Businesses often begin with an information system implemented on a shoestring budget. Without a strong framework, band-aid fixes often get thrown onto a shaky foundation. When a network grows, stability and expandability issues can impede the success of the business. Such badly designed environments need careful assessment, smart strategic planning, and extensive technical knowledge to evolve to a network architecture able to provide the solid foundation to meet current business demands and simplify future growth.

  • Interact with Problem Solvers Rather Than Product Resellers
    Smaller companies need guidance and technical training to navigate through an ever more complex maze of technology alternatives available for accelerating business growth and enhancing efficiency. These companies hardly need a network consultant who is motivated to resell a specific vendor's technology. IT support and product sales can result in a scenario where the recommended solution is designed around a profitable technology instead of the genuine requirements of a business. Progent eliminates these conflicts of interest by selling just services rather than products. This enables Progent to match IT expertise with the real needs of customers.

What Makes Progent Unique from Other Service Firms?
Progent is a Microsoft Certified Partner support firm and Progent's number of employees, depth of IT knowledge, fine tuned support software, and understanding of enterprise networking enable companies to avoid the limitations of excessive reliance on smaller service organizations, independent freelance service providers, or limited internal resources.

Progent adds value by offering:

  • Proven Methodology
    Progentís staff of Microsoft and Cisco Certified experts average longer than a decade of hands-on industry experience, in the trenches of network support, executing a wide variety of technical tasks for a large mix of clients.

  • Value Pricing
    Progent's pricing model is to charge for remote support and on-site visits by the minute. Consequently, you are charged only for delivered services. Progent does not demand a higher rate for after-hours or priority service, and within California or in regions where Progent offers on-premises support, Progent does not charge for travel except for emergency calls where on-site time is less than four hours. In addition, Progent imposes no initialization charge and asks no monthly commitment for services delivered during regular working hours. Many support organizations impose large minimum fees or charge for each quarter hour or longer. Progent's fine granularity does away with large bills for fast repairs so you won't be forced to allow minor problems to fester.

  • Complete Documentation of Delivered Services
    Progent has developed a comprehensive service reporting system that stores and organizes detailed documentation for all billed support activities. Unlike many independent consultants or local service organizations who offer minimal documentation or specifics of tasks performed, each service delivered by Progent is accompanied by full documentation. Every Progent consultant has access to the support documentation transmitted by every staff member to each client. The practice of detailing and organizing support activity results in more effective service and eliminates a variety of common problems such as when a support customer is virtually held hostage to a consultant who refuses to release vital service information.

  • Automated Network Monitoring with MS Operations Manager
    Progent is one of the few IT service companies to provide round-the-clock system monitoring services powered by MS Operations Manager. Microsoft System Center Operations Manager causes your computer support to be anticipatory instead of reactive. By uncovering potential issues before they cause lost productivity, network monitoring can keep your information network from stressful and costly service losses.
