Advantages of Progent's Network Help for Companies in Colorado Springs
Progent's remote IT consulting services enable your Colorado Springs business to experience the benefits of timely, enterprise-class IT support without the expense of managing an in-house IT staff. Your information system will derive greater strategic value by becoming more reliable, productive, and secure. Advantages to your business include:

  • Convenient remote extension of your on-site IT resources
    With most businesses in Colorado Springs or anywhere in Colorado, local computer service providers, whether made up of freelance consultants or an in-house maintenance staff, can solve the majority of network problems. However, IT crises can strike when local support personnel are overstretched or unavailable, and some trouble may stem from technology that is unfamiliar to your onsite support technicians. In these instances, Progent's on-call service professionals provide a convenient, quick, and budget-friendly way to supplement your regular resources and to pass on useful knowledge to increase your capability to handle downstream issues locally.

  • Reduced Dependence on Individual Consultants
    For network support, smaller companies commonly depend on independent freelance consultants. Although freelance consultants have less overhead than larger consulting firms and can afford to charge lower rates, they are occasionally stretched too thin, making it difficult to respond quickly to urgent situations. If a freelance service provider is busy with another customer, sick, on a trip, or in class, the lack of backup personnel may force your company to wait for assistance during an IT crisis. As your network expands, system downtime and trouble with vital applications become more expensive. The budget you thought you were saving on an independent can be consumed fast by lost productivity. Progent provides a ready source of backup support experts to make sure your IT system is always up and running.

  • Build a Scalable Basis for Smooth Growth
    Companies often start with an IT system created on a shoestring budget. Lacking a robust infrastructure, band-aid fixes can get thrown on top of an unstable foundation. When a network grows, stability and scalability issues can impede the success of the business. These poorly built systems need careful assessment, intelligent long-term planning, and extensive IT expertise to evolve to a network architecture able to deliver the stable foundation to meet current business requirements and ease downstream expansion.

  • Work with Solution Providers Rather Than Technology Sellers
    Smaller businesses require advice and technical training to negotiate an ever more complex array of product options available for accelerating business growth and improving efficiency. These companies hardly need a computer engineer who is motivated to sell a specific vendor's technology. Network support and product sales can result in a situation where the proposed solution is built around a profitable technology instead of the genuine requirements of a client. Progent avoids these dilemmas by selling only services instead of products. This enables Progent to align IT expertise with the best needs of clients.

How Is Progent Unique from Other Support Organizations?
Progent is a Microsoft Partner consulting firm and Progent's staff size, breadth of IT experience, refined support tools, and familiarity with corporate IT allow companies to avoid the limitations of exclusive reliance on smaller consulting firms, individual freelance consultants, or over-stretched internal resources.

Progent stands out by offering:

  • Best Practices
    Progentís staff of Microsoft and Cisco Premier experts average more than ten years of hands-on professional background, in the trenches of network support, executing a broad range of IT tasks for a large array of clients. Every Progent consultant shares a refined collection of personal best practices which are combined into shared leading practices training that Progent instills in its consulting personnel. This ensures that you get not only expert IT help, but also a support engineer with proven approaches for using technical knowledge to fix actual IT problems quickly.

  • Value Pricing
    Progent's pricing policy is to bill for phone service and in-person visits per minute. As a result, you are invoiced just for delivered services. Progent does not demand a higher rate for off-hours or priority service, and within California or in regions where Progent provides on-premises support, Progent does not bill for travel time except for urgent support where on-site work is less than four hours. In addition, Progent imposes no service activation charge and asks no retainer for support services provided during normal business hours. Many support organizations demand large minimum fees or charge for each quarter hour or longer. Progent's fine granularity avoids big bills for fast repairs so you will not be tempted to permit simple problems to stay unaddressed.

  • Full Documentation of IT Services
    Progent has created a comprehensive support reporting system that records and formats detailed documentation for all billed services. Unlike many independent consultants or local support organizations who offer scant documentation or specifics of services done, each service delivered by Progent is tracked by comprehensive documentation. Every Progent staff member has use of the service reports sent by every staff member to every customer. The discipline of detailing and archiving service activity results in more effective support and eliminates a variety of typical misfortunes such as when a service client is effectively held hostage to a consultant who wonít release vital service information.

  • 24x7 Network Monitoring with Microsoft Operations Manager
    Progent is one of the few IT service firms to offer round-the-clock network monitoring services powered by Microsoft Operations Manager. MS Operations Manager allows your computer support to be proactive instead of reactive. By uncovering potential issues before they result in downtime, network monitoring can keep your IT network from stressful and expensive service losses.
