Advantages of Progent's IT Support for Organizations in Corpus Christi
Progent's remote IT consulting services allow your Corpus Christi business to enjoy the advantages of timely, expert IT support without the expense of managing an in-house IT organization. Your network will acquire greater strategic worth by being increasingly available, efficient, and protected. Benefits to your business include:

  • Convenient virtual extension of your local support resources
    For most businesses in Corpus Christi or anywhere in Texas, local computer support providers, whether represented by independent consultants or an internal maintenance staff, can take care of typical technical issues. On the other hand, major troubles can occur when your regular resources are overstretched or unavailable, and some trouble may stem from technology that is beyond the scope of your usual service technicians. In these situations, Progent's on-call support professionals give you a convenient, quick, and economical solution to augment your regular help and to convey valuable knowledge to improve your capability to resolve downstream problems locally.

  • Reduced Dependence on Freelance Service Providers
    For IT support, smaller organizations commonly depend on individual freelance service providers. Although freelance consultants carry less internal costs than larger consulting firms and can often charge lower rates, they are occasionally overextended, making it hard to respond quickly to urgent situations. If an independent consultant is busy with another client, sick, on vacation, or in class, the lack of fallback help may force your company to wait for assistance during an emergency. As your business grows, system unavailability and trouble with vital applications are more expensive. The money you thought you were saving on a freelancer can be eaten up fast by reduced productivity. Progent offers an on-call source of reserve service expertise to insure your IT system stays up and running.

  • Create a Solid Foundation for Seamless Expansion
    Businesses typically start with an information system implemented on a shoestring budget. Without a proper infrastructure, band-aid repairs can get piled onto a shaky foundation. As a network grows, stability and scalability issues can hinder the success of the organization. These poorly built systems need careful assessment, intelligent strategic planning, and broad-based technical knowledge to evolve to a network infrastructure able to offer the stable foundation to handle vital business requirements and facilitate future expansion.

  • Interact with Problem Solvers Instead of Technology Resellers
    Smaller organizations need advice and technical training to navigate through an increasingly complicated array of product alternatives capable of accelerating business growth and enhancing efficiency. These companies hardly need a computer consultant who is attempting to earn a commission on a certain vendor's technology. IT support and product sales can result in a situation where the proposed solution is built around a predetermined product instead of the genuine needs of a business. Progent avoids these conflicts of interest by selling only services rather than products. This enables Progent to align technical consulting with the real needs of customers.

How Is Progent Unique from Other Support Organizations?
Progent is a Microsoft Certified Partner support firm and Progent's head count, breadth of technical experience, refined support software, and understanding of enterprise networking enable businesses to escape the pitfalls associated with exclusive dependence on smaller service firms, independent freelance service providers, or limited in-house resources.

Progent stands out by providing:

  • Best Practices
    Progentís team of Microsoft and Cisco Certified experts average more than ten years of real-world industry background, in the trenches of network support, executing a broad variety of technical tasks for a large mix of businesses. Each Progent support professional shares a proven set of personal best practices which are combined into company-wide best practices training that Progent teaches its consulting team. This ensures that you get not only world-class IT skills, but also a consultant with proven approaches for applying technical knowledge to fix actual IT problems quickly.

  • Value Pricing
    Progent's pricing policy is to bill for phone service and in-person visits by the minute. As a result, you pay only for received support. Progent does not demand a more expensive rate for off-hours or urgent support, and inside California or in areas where Progent offers on-premises support, Progent does not charge for travel time except for emergency calls where on-site time is less than 4 hours. In addition, Progent applies no initialization charge and requires no retainer for services delivered during normal working hours. Many service firms demand substantial minimum payments or charge for each fifteen minutes or longer. Progent's one-minute granularity eliminates big bills for fast repairs so you will not be tempted to allow less critical problems to stay unaddressed.

  • Full Documentation of Delivered Services
    Progent has created a sophisticated support reporting system that records and formats complete documentation for all delivered support activities. Unlike some independent consultants or local support firms who offer scant documentation or details of services done, every service provided by Progent is tracked by full documentation. Each Progent consultant has use of the support reports sent by each staff member to each client. The practice of documenting and organizing service records results in more effective support and avoids a slew of typical problems such as when a service client is virtually held captive to a consultant who refuses to let go of vital service information.

  • Remote Server Monitoring with MS Operations Manager
    Progent is one of the few IT service companies to offer round-the-clock system monitoring services based on Microsoft Operations Manager. Microsoft Operations Manager allows your network support to be proactive rather than reactive. By anticipating potential issues before they cause lost productivity, system monitoring can save your information network from stressful and costly service disruptions.
