Benefits of Progent's IT Support for Businesses in Columbus Ohio
Progent's remote IT consulting services enable your Columbus business to experience the benefits of immediate, enterprise-grade network support without the cost of maintaining a full-time IT staff. Your information system will acquire greater business value by becoming increasingly reliable, productive, and secure. Benefits to your business include:
- Convenient remote extension of your on-site IT resources
With most organizations in Columbus Ohio, local computer support resources, whether represented by freelance consultants or a full-time IT staff, can deal with typical network problems. On the other hand, serious problems sometimes occur when local resources are overstretched or absent, and some trouble may involve IT products that is beyond the scope of your local support personnel. In these situations, Progent's online service experts give you an easy, fast, and economical way to supplement your local help and to pass on useful information to improve your capability to deal with future problems locally.
- Less Dependence on Freelance Consultants
For network support, smaller offices commonly rely on individual freelance consultants. Although independent service people have less internal costs than big support firms and can often charge lower rates, they are often stretched too thin, making it hard to respond rapidly to crisis situations. If an independent consultant is occupied with another client, sick, on vacation, or in class, the lack of backup help may require your business to wait for assistance during an IT crisis. As your company expands, network downtime and problems with critical software become more expensive. The budget you thought you were saving on a freelancer can be eaten up fast by reduced productivity. Progent provides a dependable source of backup service expertise to make sure your IT system stays up and running.
- Create a Solid Foundation for Smooth Expansion
Businesses typically start with an information architecture created on a shoestring budget. Lacking a scalable infrastructure, slap-dash fixes often get piled on top of a weak foundation. When a network grows, reliability and scalability problems can impede the productivity of the organization. These badly designed environments need careful assessment, intelligent strategic planning, and broad-based IT expertise to evolve to a network infrastructure able to deliver the stable foundation to meet current business requirements and ease future growth.
- Interact with Solution Providers Instead of Technology Vendors
Smaller businesses require advice and technical training to navigate through an increasingly complicated maze of product alternatives available for promoting business growth and enhancing productivity. Businesses hardly need a network engineer who is trying to earn a commission on a specific vendor's products. IT consulting and product sales can result in a scenario where the recommended
solution is designed around a profitable technology instead of the true needs of a client. Progent avoids these dilemmas by selling just services rather than products. This allows Progent to match IT expertise with the best needs of customers.
How Is Progent Different from Other Support Firms?
Progent is a Microsoft Partner support company and Progent's number of employees, depth of IT background, fine tuned remote support tools, and familiarity with enterprise networking allow companies to avoid the pitfalls of excessive reliance on smaller service organizations, individual freelance consultants, or over-stretched internal IT help.
Progent stands out by providing:

- Value Pricing
Progent's pricing policy is to charge for remote support and on-site visits per minute. As a result, you are invoiced only for delivered services. Progent does not demand a more expensive rate for off-hours or urgent support, and inside California or in areas where Progent provides in-person support, Progent does not bill for travel time except for emergency calls where on-site time is less than 4 hours. In addition, Progent applies no startup fee and asks no monthly commitment for support services delivered during normal business hours. Many support firms demand substantial minimum fees or charge for each fifteen minutes or longer. Progent's one-minute granularity does away with large invoices for fast solutions so you won't be tempted to permit simple problems to stay unaddressed.
- Full Documentation of Delivered Services
Progent has created a sophisticated service reporting system that records and organizes detailed documentation for all billed support activities. Unlike some independent consultants or small support organizations who provide minimal documentation or details of tasks performed, every service delivered by Progent is tracked by full documentation. Each Progent staff member has use of the service reports transmitted by every consultant to every customer. The discipline of detailing and organizing service activity allows more effective support and avoids a slew of common misfortunes such as when a support customer is virtually held hostage to a consultant who refuses to release vital service information.
- 24x7 Server Monitoring with Microsoft Operations Manager
Progent is one of the few IT service firms to offer round-the-clock system tracking services powered by MS Operations Manager. MS System Center Operations Manager causes your computer maintenance to be anticipatory instead of reactive. By revealing possible problems before they cause downtime, network monitoring can save your information network from painful and expensive service disruptions.
