How Your Baton Rouge Business Can Contact Progent's Remote Service Experts
To get in touch with Progent about emergency remote assistance with Microsoft Windows, macOS and OS X, or Linux/UNIX computer systems, visit Progent's Emergency Remote Help, telephone 1-800-993-9400, or go to Contact Progent. For offices and new businesses in Baton Rouge or throughout the state of Louisiana, Progent's phone-based network support specialists are ready to provide professional and affordable IT support the moment your business has to have it. More than 15 years of providing remote technical assistance has led to Microsoft Partner status for Progent's team of engineers and has enabled Progent to acquire world-class troubleshooting capability and to fine tune online access technology to fix computer problems quickly while avoiding the expense and lost productivity associated with on-site service calls.

Even if your Baton Rouge office has a regular freelance support technician or maintains a full time organization that know how to handle common computer issues, Progentís Microsoft certified engineers can offer an easy and transparent virtual extension of your on-site resources for situations when your regular IT support personnel either lack the bandwidth or the expertise to address sudden network crises or especially complicated integration projects.

Advantages of Progent's Network Help for Offices in Baton Rouge
Progent's online network troubleshooting services enable your Baton Rouge organization to realize the benefits of on-call, expert IT support without the expense of maintaining an in-house IT organization. Your information system will derive added business value by being more available, efficient, and secure. Benefits to your company include:

  • Seamless remote expansion of your local support resources
    With most companies in Baton Rouge and throughout Louisiana, nearby computer support providers, whether represented by outside consultants or an internal IT staff, can handle typical network issues. However, IT crises sometimes strike when your regular resources are overstretched or absent, and some problems may stem from technology that is beyond the scope of your onsite support technicians. In these situations, Progent's on-call support specialists give you an easy, fast, and budget-friendly way to augment your regular resources and to convey valuable information to increase your ability to deal with future problems in-house.

  • Reduced Dependence on Freelance Service Providers
    For network support, smaller businesses often depend on independent freelance service providers. While independent consultants carry less internal costs than larger support organizations and can often charge marginally less, they are often stretched too thin, making it impossible to respond rapidly to urgent situations. If a freelance consultant is occupied with another customer, ill, on vacation, or in class, the lack of fallback personnel may require your company to wait for assistance during an emergency. As your company grows, network unavailability and problems with critical applications are more costly. The budget you thought you were conserving on a freelancer can be eaten up quickly by lost productivity. Progent offers a reliable source of backup service experts to make sure your IT system is always up and running.

  • Create a Solid Basis for Smooth Growth
    Companies typically start with an information system created on a modest budget. Lacking a scalable infrastructure, slap-dash fixes often get piled onto a weak foundation. When a network grows, stability and scalability issues can hinder the productivity of the business. Such badly built systems require careful assessment, smart long-term planning, and extensive technical knowledge to evolve to a network architecture able to provide the stable foundation to handle vital business demands and facilitate downstream growth.

  • Interact with Problem Solvers Rather Than Product Vendors
    Smaller companies need guidance and technical education to navigate through an increasingly complicated array of technology options available for promoting business growth and improving productivity. Businesses hardly need a network engineer who is attempting to earn a commission on a specific vendor's technology. IT consulting and product sales can result in a scenario where the recommended solution is built around a profitable technology rather than the genuine requirements of a business. Progent avoids these dilemmas by selling just services instead of products. This allows Progent to align IT consulting with the best needs of customers.

What Makes Progent Unique from Other Service Organizations?
Progent is a Microsoft Certified Partner support firm and Progent's head count, range of IT background, fine tuned remote support tools, and understanding of corporate IT allow offices to escape the pitfalls of exclusive dependence on smaller service firms, independent freelance service providers, or limited internal resources.

Progent stands out by providing:

  • Best Practices
    Progentís staff of Microsoft and Cisco Certified experts average longer than ten years of hands-on industry experience, at the front lines of network service, performing a wide range of technical tasks for an extensive array of customers.

This ensures that you get not just expert IT skills, but also a support engineer with proven approaches for applying technical knowledge to repair actual network problems quickly.

  • Value Pricing
    Progent's pricing policy is to bill for remote support and on-site visits per minute. Consequently, you are invoiced only for received services. Progent does not impose a higher rate for off-hours or emergency support, and inside California or in regions where Progent offers on-premises support, Progent does not bill for travel time except for urgent support where on-site time is less than four hours. Also, Progent applies no startup fee and asks no retainer for support services delivered during regular working hours. Many support firms demand large minimum payments or charge for every fifteen minutes or longer. Progent's one-minute granularity eliminates big invoices for quick solutions so you won't be forced to permit less critical problems to fester.

  • Information Transfer
    Progent practices knowledge transfer from Progent's consultants to customers. By educating clients to deal with technical issues that are within their scope, Progent is able to focus on offering hard-to-find skills where Progent has little competition. Businesses who work with trusted freelance consultants or who employ in-house support staffs benefit when Progent transfers information about critical technology and proven methodologies to make their IT environments more robust, protected, and productive.

  • Remote Network Monitoring with MS Operations Manager
    Progent is one of the only IT service firms to offer round-the-clock network monitoring services powered by Microsoft System Center Operations Manager.
