Advantages of Progent's IT Support for Offices in Corpus Christi
Progent's online technical help services enable your Corpus Christi business to have the advantages of on-call, world-class IT support without the cost of maintaining an in-house IT staff. Your information system will derive added business worth by becoming more available, productive, and protected. Advantages to your business include:

  • Convenient remote extension of your on-site IT resources
    For most businesses in Corpus Christi and throughout Texas, nearby network service providers, whether consisting of outside consultants or a full-time maintenance staff, can take care of the majority of network issues. On the other hand, major troubles can strike when local support personnel are overstretched or unavailable, and some problems may stem from IT products that is beyond the scope of your local service personnel. In these instances, Progent's online service specialists give you a convenient, quick, and affordable way to supplement your local help and to convey valuable information to increase your ability to resolve downstream issues in-house.

  • Reduced Reliance on Individual Service Providers
    For IT maintenance, smaller companies often depend on independent freelance service providers. Although independent consultants carry less overhead than big support companies and can often charge marginally less, they are sometimes stretched too thin, making it impossible to respond quickly to urgent situations. If a freelance consultant is occupied with another client, sick, on vacation, or in training, the absence of backup personnel may require your company to go without assistance during an emergency. As your network expands, system downtime and trouble with vital software are more costly. The money you thought you were conserving on an independent can be eaten up quickly by lost productivity. Progent provides an on-call source of backup support experts to insure your IT system remains up and running.

  • Create a Scalable Basis for Seamless Growth
    Businesses often start with an information system implemented on a modest budget. Lacking a scalable framework, slap-dash fixes can get piled on top of an unstable foundation. As a network grows, reliability and scalability problems can hinder the productivity of the organization. Such badly built systems need proper analysis, intelligent long-term planning, and broad-based technical knowledge to upgrade to a network architecture that can deliver the solid foundation to handle vital business demands and facilitate future growth.

  • Work with Problem Solvers Instead of Product Vendors
    Smaller offices need advice and technical education to navigate through an ever more complex array of product options capable of promoting business success and enhancing productivity. These companies do not need a network engineer who is trying to sell a specific vendor's products. IT consulting and product selling can lead to a scenario where the proposed solution is built around a profitable technology rather than the true requirements of a client. Progent eliminates these dilemmas by selling just services rather than products. This enables Progent to align IT consulting with the real interests of clients.

How Is Progent Unique from Other Support Organizations?
Progent is a Microsoft Partner consulting company and Progent's number of employees, breadth of IT experience, fine tuned support tools, and familiarity with enterprise networking enable companies to avoid the limitations of excessive reliance on smaller service organizations, independent freelance service providers, or over-stretched internal resources.

Progent stands out by providing:

  • Proven Methodology

This means that you get not just world-class technical capability, but also a consultant with proven methods for applying technical knowledge to solve real-world network problems efficiently.

  • Value Pricing
    Progent's pricing model is to charge for online service and on-site visits by the minute. As a result, you are invoiced just for delivered services.

In addition, Progent applies no minimum charge and requires no retainer for support services provided during normal working hours. Many support firms impose large minimum payments or charge for each fifteen minutes or longer. Progent's one-minute granularity avoids big bills for quick solutions so you won't be forced to allow simple problems to fester.

  • Full Documentation of Delivered Services
    Progent has created a sophisticated support reporting system that records and organizes detailed documentation for all billed services.

Each Progent consultant has use of the service documentation transmitted by each staff member to every customer. The practice of detailing and organizing service activity allows more efficient support and eliminates a slew of typical problems such as when a support client is virtually held captive to a consultant who wonít let go of the keys to the kingdom.

  • 24x7 Network Monitoring with Microsoft System Center Operations Manager
    Progent is one of the only support firms to offer 24x7 network tracking services based on Microsoft Operations Manager.
