Benefits of Progent's Network Help for Offices in Corpus Christi
Progent's remote technical help services allow your Corpus Christi organization to have the benefits of immediate, enterprise-class IT support without the expense of managing a full-time IT organization. Your information system will acquire added strategic value by being more available, efficient, and protected. Benefits to your business include:

  • Seamless remote extension of your on-site IT resources
    For most businesses in Corpus Christi or anywhere in Texas, nearby computer support providers, whether represented by outside consultants or a full-time IT staff, can resolve the majority of network problems. However, major troubles might spring up when your regular resources are too busy or absent, and some trouble may stem from IT products that is beyond the scope of your usual support technicians. In these situations, Progent's on-call support specialists offer a convenient, fast, and economical way to augment your regular resources and to convey useful information to improve your ability to resolve downstream problems locally.

  • Reduced Dependence on Individual Consultants
    For IT support, smaller companies often depend on independent freelance consultants. Although independent service people carry smaller internal costs than larger consulting organizations and can often charge marginally less, they are sometimes overbooked, making it impossible to respond rapidly to urgent situations. If a freelance consultant is busy with another client, sick, on a trip, or in training, the absence of reserve personnel may require your business to go without help during an emergency. As your network grows, system downtime and problems with critical applications are more costly. The money you thought you were conserving on an independent can be consumed fast by lost productivity. Progent offers a dependable source of reserve service experts to make sure your IT system is always available.

  • Build a Scalable Basis for Seamless Growth
    Companies typically start with an IT architecture created on a shoestring budget. Without a scalable infrastructure, slap-dash repairs can get piled on top of a weak foundation. As a network grows, reliability and scalability issues can impede the success of the business. Such badly built systems need proper analysis, intelligent strategic planning, and extensive technical knowledge to upgrade to a system infrastructure that can offer the solid foundation to handle critical business requirements and facilitate future expansion.

  • Work with Solution Providers Instead of Product Resellers
    Smaller offices require advice and technical education to negotiate an increasingly complicated array of technology options available for promoting business success and improving efficiency. Businesses hardly need a network consultant who is attempting to earn a commission on a specific vendor's technology. Network consulting and product sales can result in a scenario where the recommended solution is designed around a predetermined technology instead of the true needs of a business. Progent avoids these conflicts by selling only services rather than products. This allows Progent to match technical expertise with the real interests of clients.

How Is Progent Different from Other Support Organizations?
Progent is a Microsoft Certified Partner consulting firm and Progent's head count, depth of technical experience, refined remote support tools, and understanding of enterprise networking allow companies to escape the limitations of exclusive reliance on smaller service organizations, independent freelance service providers, or limited internal resources.

Progent adds value by providing:

  • Best Practices
    Progentís team of Microsoft and Cisco Premier Certified consultants average more than ten years of real-world industry background, at the forefront of IT support, performing a broad range of technical projects for a large mix of businesses. Each Progent consultant shares a refined collection of personal best practices which are incorporated into shared best practices standards that Progent instills in its support team. This means that you get not just world-class technical help, but also a consultant with field-tested approaches for applying computer knowledge to solve real-world IT problems efficiently.

  • Value Pricing
    Progent's pricing model is to bill for remote support and on-site visits by the minute. As a result, you are charged exclusively for received services. Progent does not impose a higher rate for off-hours or emergency support, and inside California or in areas where Progent offers in-person service, Progent does not charge for travel except for emergency support where on-site time is less than 4 hours. In addition, Progent imposes no startup fee and requires no retainer for services provided during regular business hours. Many service firms demand large minimum payments or charge for each fifteen minutes or longer. Progent's fine granularity does away with large invoices for fast repairs so you won't be tempted to permit less critical problems to fester.

  • Complete Records of Delivered Services
    Progent has created a sophisticated service reporting system that records and organizes detailed documentation for all delivered support activities. Unlike some freelance consultants or small service firms who provide minimal documentation or specifics of services done, every service delivered by Progent is accompanied by full documentation. Every Progent staff member has access to the service reports transmitted by every staff member to every client. The practice of detailing and archiving support records allows more effective support and avoids a slew of typical misfortunes such as when a service customer is virtually held captive to a consultant who refuses to let go of the keys to the kingdom.

  • Automated Network Monitoring with Microsoft System Center Operations Manager
    Progent is one of the only support companies to provide 24x7 system tracking services powered by MS System Center Operations Manager. Microsoft Operations Manager causes your computer maintenance to be anticipatory rather than reactive. By uncovering potential problems before they cause downtime, network monitoring can save your information network from stressful and expensive availability disruptions.
