Advantages of Progent's IT Support for Businesses in Boise
Progent's online network troubleshooting services allow your Boise organization to realize the advantages of on-call, enterprise-grade IT support without the cost of managing a full-time IT staff. Your information system will acquire added strategic worth by being increasingly reliable, productive, and protected. Advantages to your business include:

  • Convenient remote expansion of your local IT resources
    For most organizations in Boise or anywhere in Idaho, nearby computer service providers, whether made up of outside consultants or an internal IT staff, can solve typical technical issues. On the other hand, IT crises may spring up when local support personnel are too busy or absent, and some problems may involve technology that is unfamiliar to your local support personnel. In these cases, Progent's on-call service specialists offer a convenient, quick, and budget-friendly solution to supplement your regular help and to pass on useful knowledge to improve your capability to handle downstream issues locally.

  • Less Reliance on Individual Consultants
    For IT maintenance, smaller offices often rely on individual freelance service providers. Although freelance service people carry smaller internal costs than larger consulting companies and can afford to charge lower rates, they are occasionally stretched too thin, making it difficult to respond rapidly to urgent situations. If a freelance consultant is occupied with another client, sick, on vacation, or in training, the lack of reserve help may require your company to go without help during an emergency. As your network expands, network downtime and problems with vital applications are more expensive. The budget you thought you were conserving on an independent can be consumed quickly by reduced productivity. Progent offers an on-call source of reserve service expertise to make sure your IT system remains available.

  • Build a Scalable Basis for Smooth Expansion
    Companies often start with an IT architecture implemented on a modest budget. Lacking a scalable framework, band-aid fixes can get piled onto an unstable foundation. When a company grows, reliability and scalability problems can impede the productivity of the organization. Such badly designed systems require proper assessment, intelligent long-term planning, and wide IT expertise to evolve to a network infrastructure able to deliver the stable foundation to handle current business demands and ease downstream expansion.

  • Interact with Problem Solvers Instead of Product Resellers
    Smaller organizations need advice and technical training to navigate through an ever more complex maze of product options capable of promoting business growth and enhancing productivity. They do not need a computer engineer who is motivated to sell a specific vendor's technology. Network consulting and product selling can lead to a scenario where the proposed solution is built around a profitable product instead of the genuine requirements of a business. Progent avoids these conflicts by selling just services rather than products. This enables Progent to match IT expertise with the real needs of clients.

How Is Progent Unique from Other Support Organizations?
Progent is a Microsoft Partner consulting company and Progent's staff size, breadth of technical knowledge, refined remote support software, and understanding of enterprise networking allow offices to escape the pitfalls of exclusive reliance on smaller consulting firms, independent freelance consultants, or limited internal resources.

Progent adds value by offering:

  • Best Practices
    Progentís team of Microsoft and Cisco qualified consultants average longer than a decade of real-world professional background, in the trenches of IT support, executing a wide range of IT projects for an extensive array of customers. Each Progent consultant shares a proven collection of personal best practices which are incorporated into shared best practices training that Progent instills in its support team. This ensures that you get not only expert IT help, but also a consultant with proven approaches for applying computer knowledge to repair real-world IT problems quickly.

  • Value Pricing
    Progent's pricing model is to bill for remote service and on-premises help per minute. As a result, you are invoiced exclusively for delivered services. Progent does not demand a higher rate for after-hours or priority service, and within California or in areas where Progent provides in-person service, Progent does not bill for travel except for emergency calls where on-site time is less than 4 hours. In addition, Progent applies no minimum charge and asks no retainer for services provided during regular business hours. Many service organizations impose large minimum fees or charge for each quarter hour or longer. Progent's fine granularity avoids large invoices for fast fixes so you will not be forced to permit minor problems to fester.

  • Knowledge Transfer
    Progent practices knowledge transfer from Progent's support experts to customers. By educating customers to handle technical issues that are within their scope, Progent can focus on delivering hard-to-find skills where Progent has little competition. Companies who utilize familiar freelance service providers or who employ internal IT staffs benefit when Progent passes on knowledge about new technology and tested methodologies to make their networks more robust, protected, and efficient.

  • Automated Network Monitoring with Microsoft System Center Operations Manager
    Progent is one of the few support firms to provide round-the-clock network tracking services powered by Microsoft System Center Operations Manager. Microsoft System Center Operations Manager causes your computer maintenance to be proactive instead of reactive. By uncovering possible issues before they cause downtime, network monitoring can save your IT network from painful and expensive service losses.
