Advantages of Progent's Network Help for Organizations in Des Moines
Progent's online technical help services allow your Des Moines organization to experience the benefits of timely, expert network support without the cost of maintaining a full-time IT staff. Your network will derive greater business value by becoming increasingly reliable, efficient, and protected. Benefits to your company include:

  • Seamless remote extension of your local IT resources
    With most organizations in Des Moines and throughout Iowa, nearby network support resources, whether represented by freelance consultants or a full-time maintenance staff, can resolve typical technical problems. However, major troubles can occur when your regular support personnel are too busy or absent, and some problems may stem from technology that is unfamiliar to your onsite support technicians. In these instances, Progent's on-call support experts provide an easy, fast, and affordable way to augment your local resources and to transfer valuable knowledge to improve your capability to handle downstream issues locally.

  • Less Reliance on Freelance Consultants
    For IT maintenance, smaller organizations often rely on independent freelance consultants. While freelance service people have smaller internal costs than big support companies and can afford to charge marginally less, 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, ill, on vacation, or in class, the absence of fallback help may require your business to go without assistance during an IT crisis. As your business grows, system downtime and problems with vital software are more expensive. The money you thought you were conserving on an independent can be eaten up quickly by lost productivity. Progent offers a reliable source of backup support experts to insure your network stays up and running.

  • Build a Solid Foundation for Smooth Expansion
    Businesses often start with an information system created on a modest budget. Lacking a scalable infrastructure, slap-dash repairs often get piled onto a shaky foundation. When a company grows, stability and scalability issues can hinder the success of the business. Such poorly built systems need proper analysis, intelligent strategic planning, and broad-based IT knowledge to upgrade to a system infrastructure able to offer the solid foundation to meet critical business requirements and simplify future expansion.

  • Interact with Solution Providers Instead of Product Sellers
    Smaller companies need guidance and technical education to negotiate an ever more complex maze of technology options available for accelerating business success and improving productivity. Businesses do not need a computer engineer who is trying to earn a commission on a specific vendor's technology. Network consulting and product selling can lead to a situation where the proposed solution is built around a profitable product instead of the genuine needs of a client. Progent avoids these conflicts of interest by offering just services rather than products. This allows Progent to align technical expertise with the best interests of customers.

How Is Progent Unique from Other Support Organizations?
Progent is a Microsoft Partner consulting firm and Progent's head count, breadth of technical experience, refined support software, and familiarity with enterprise networking enable companies to escape the pitfalls associated with exclusive reliance on smaller consulting firms, independent freelance consultants, or over-stretched in-house IT help.

Progent adds value by offering:

In addition, Progent imposes no minimum charge and asks no retainer for services provided during regular working hours. Many service firms impose substantial minimum payments or charge for each quarter hour or longer. Progent's fine granularity avoids large bills for fast repairs so you won't be tempted to allow less critical problems to stay unaddressed.

  • Full Documentation of IT Services
    Progent has created a sophisticated service reporting system that stores and organizes detailed documentation for all delivered services. Unlike many independent consultants or small service firms who offer scant documentation or specifics of tasks performed, each service delivered by Progent is accompanied by full documentation. Each Progent staff member has use of the support reports sent by each staff member to each customer. The practice of detailing and archiving service records allows more effective service and eliminates a slew of common misfortunes such as when a service customer is virtually held hostage to a consultant who wonít release the keys to the kingdom.

  • Automated Server Monitoring with MS Operations Manager
    Progent is one of the only IT service companies to offer 24x7 system monitoring services based on Microsoft System Center Operations Manager.
