Advantages of Progent's Network Help for Companies in Chesapeake Virginia
Progent's online IT consulting services allow your Chesapeake company to experience the benefits of immediate, world-class IT support without the expense of managing an in-house IT staff. Your information system will acquire added strategic worth by becoming increasingly reliable, productive, and secure. Advantages to your company include:
- Convenient virtual extension of your local IT resources
With most companies in Chesapeake Virginia, local network support providers, whether represented by outside consultants or an in-house IT staff, can solve typical network problems. However, IT crises may occur when local resources are overstretched or unavailable, and some trouble may involve IT products that is unfamiliar to your usual support people. In these instances, Progent's online service experts offer a convenient, quick, and affordable way to augment your regular help and to pass on valuable knowledge to increase your capability to deal with downstream problems in-house.
- Less Dependence on Freelance Consultants
For network support, smaller businesses often rely on individual freelance service providers. While independent service people have less internal costs than big support firms and can often charge lower rates, they are often overbooked, making it hard to respond rapidly to crisis situations. If a freelance consultant is busy with another customer, ill, on a trip, or in class, the absence of fallback personnel may force your company to wait for assistance during an emergency. As your business expands, system downtime and problems with critical applications become more expensive. The budget you thought you were saving on an independent can be eaten up fast by reduced productivity. Progent provides a reliable source of backup support experts to insure your network is always up and running.
- Build a Scalable Foundation for Seamless Growth
Companies typically start with an IT system created on a shoestring budget. Without a robust framework, band-aid fixes can get thrown on top of a shaky foundation. As a network grows, reliability and expandability problems can hinder the productivity of the business. Such badly designed environments require careful assessment, smart strategic planning, and extensive technical knowledge to upgrade to a network architecture that can offer the solid foundation to meet critical business requirements and facilitate future expansion.
- Interact with Problem Solvers Rather Than Product Sellers
Smaller offices need guidance and technical education to negotiate an increasingly complex array of technology options capable of promoting business success and enhancing efficiency. They do not need a computer consultant who is attempting to earn a commission on a certain vendor's products. Network consulting and product selling can lead to a scenario where the recommended
solution is designed around a profitable product instead of the true requirements of a business. Progent eliminates these conflicts of interest by offering just services rather than products. This allows Progent to match technical expertise with the real interests of customers.
How Is Progent Different from Other Support Organizations?
Progent is a Microsoft Certified Partner support company and Progent's staff size, breadth of IT background, refined remote support software, and understanding of enterprise networking enable companies to escape the pitfalls of excessive reliance on smaller consulting firms, individual freelance consultants, or limited in-house resources.
Progent stands out by providing:

- Value Pricing
Progent's pricing model is to bill for phone support and on-premises help per minute. Consequently, you are billed just for delivered support. Progent does not impose a more expensive rate for off-hours or urgent service, and inside California or in regions where Progent offers in-person support, Progent does not charge for travel time except for emergency calls where on-site time is less than 4 hours. In addition, Progent imposes no minimum fee and asks no monthly commitment for support services delivered during normal business hours. Many support firms impose substantial minimum fees or charge for every quarter hour or longer. Progent's fine granularity avoids big bills for quick fixes so you won't be forced to permit minor problems to fester.
- Complete Records of Delivered Services
Progent has created a sophisticated support reporting system that records and formats complete documentation for all delivered services. Unlike many freelance consultants or local support organizations who offer minimal documentation or specifics of tasks performed, each service provided by Progent is accompanied by full documentation. Each Progent consultant has use of the service reports sent by every staff member to every client. The discipline of documenting and archiving service activity allows more effective service and eliminates a variety of typical problems such as when a support client is effectively held captive to a consultant who won't let go of vital service information.
- Remote Server Monitoring with MS Operations Manager
Progent is one of the few consulting firms to offer 24x7 remote monitoring services based on Microsoft Operations Manager. Microsoft Operations Manager allows your network maintenance to be anticipatory rather than reactive. By anticipating potential issues before they cause lost productivity, network monitoring can keep your IT network from stressful and costly service disruptions.
