Benefits of Progent's IT Support for Organizations in Fort Collins
Progent's remote support services allow your Fort Collins business to have the benefits of on-call, expert IT support without the cost of managing an in-house IT staff. Your information system will acquire added business worth by being increasingly reliable, productive, and secure. Advantages to your company include:

  • Seamless remote extension of your local support resources
    With most companies in Fort Collins or anywhere in Colorado, local computer support providers, whether consisting of freelance consultants or a full-time maintenance staff, can take care of the majority of network problems. However, major troubles might strike when your regular resources are overstretched or unavailable, and some trouble may be associated with technology that is beyond the scope of your onsite support people. In these situations, Progent's online service specialists give you a convenient, fast, and affordable way to augment your regular help and to pass on valuable knowledge to increase your ability to resolve downstream issues in-house.

  • Reduced Reliance on Individual Consultants
    For network maintenance, smaller companies often depend on individual freelance consultants. Although independent consultants have smaller overhead than big service organizations and can often charge lower rates, they are sometimes overextended, making it impossible to respond rapidly to urgent situations. If a freelance service provider is busy with another customer, sick, on vacation, or in class, the absence of reserve help may require your company to wait for assistance during an emergency. As your business grows, system downtime and trouble with critical applications become more costly. The budget you thought you were saving on a freelancer can be eaten up quickly by reduced productivity. Progent provides a ready source of backup support expertise to insure your network remains available.

  • Create a Solid Basis for Smooth Expansion
    Businesses typically begin with an IT system created on a shoestring budget. Without a strong framework, band-aid repairs often get thrown on top of a shaky foundation. When a network grows, reliability and scalability problems can hinder the productivity of the organization. Such badly built environments require careful analysis, intelligent strategic planning, and extensive IT expertise to upgrade to a system architecture able to provide the solid foundation to handle vital business requirements and ease future expansion.

  • Interact with Problem Solvers Rather Than Technology Vendors
    Smaller companies need advice and technical training to negotiate an ever more complex maze of product options available for accelerating business growth and improving productivity. Businesses do not need a computer engineer who is trying to earn a commission on a specific vendor's products. Network consulting and product selling can result in a situation where the proposed solution is designed around a profitable technology instead of the true needs of a business. Progent eliminates these conflicts of interest by offering only services instead of products. This allows Progent to align IT expertise with the real needs of clients.

What Makes Progent Different from Other Support Firms?
Progent is a Microsoft Certified Partner consulting company and Progent's head count, breadth of technical knowledge, fine tuned remote support software, and understanding of enterprise networking allow businesses to avoid the limitations associated with exclusive reliance on smaller service firms, independent freelance consultants, or over-stretched in-house resources.

Progent stands out by offering:

  • Best Practices
    Progentís staff of Microsoft and Cisco Premier Certified consultants average more than a decade of hands-on industry background, in the trenches of network support, performing a wide variety of IT projects for a large array of businesses. Every Progent consultant shares a refined set of personal best practices which are incorporated into company-wide best practices standards that Progent instills in its support personnel. This ensures that you get not just world-class IT skills, but also a consultant with proven methods for applying technical knowledge to fix real-world IT problems efficiently.

  • Value Pricing
    Progent's pricing policy is to charge for online support and on-premises help per minute. Consequently, you owe only for received services. Progent does not demand a more expensive rate for off-hours or emergency service, and inside California or in regions where Progent provides on-site service, Progent does not charge for travel except for emergency support where on-site time is less than four hours. In addition, Progent imposes no initialization charge and asks no monthly commitment for services provided during regular working hours. Many support firms impose large minimum fees or charge for each fifteen minutes or longer. Progent's one-minute granularity avoids large bills for fast solutions so you won't be forced to allow minor problems to fester.

  • Complete Records of Delivered Services
    Progent has created a sophisticated support reporting system that records and formats complete documentation for all delivered services. Unlike some independent consultants or small service firms who provide scant documentation or specifics of tasks performed, each service provided by Progent is tracked by comprehensive documentation. Each Progent consultant has access to the service documentation transmitted by each consultant to each client. The practice of documenting and organizing support records allows more effective support and eliminates a slew of typical problems such as when a service client is effectively held captive to a consultant who refuses to let go of vital service information.

  • 24x7 Server Monitoring with MS Operations Manager
    Progent is one of the few consulting firms to offer 24x7 network monitoring services based on MS Operations Manager. Microsoft Operations Manager causes your computer maintenance to be anticipatory rather than reactive. By anticipating potential issues before they result in lost productivity, network monitoring can keep your information network from stressful and expensive service disruptions.
