Benefits of Progent's IT Support for Businesses in Fort Lauderdale
Progent's remote technical help services enable your Fort Lauderdale business to realize the advantages of timely, enterprise-level network support without the expense of managing an in-house IT organization. Your information system will derive added strategic value by becoming increasingly reliable, productive, and secure. Advantages to your business include:

  • Seamless virtual extension of your local IT resources
    With most organizations in Fort Lauderdale and throughout Florida, nearby computer service providers, whether represented by independent consultants or an in-house maintenance staff, can handle typical technical issues. On the other hand, IT crises can spring up when local support personnel are too busy or unavailable, and some problems may involve IT products that is beyond the scope of your onsite service technicians. In these instances, Progent's on-call support professionals provide a convenient, fast, and economical way to supplement your regular help and to convey valuable information to increase your ability to deal with downstream problems locally.

  • Reduced Reliance on Freelance Consultants
    For network support, smaller businesses often rely on independent freelance consultants. While independent consultants carry smaller internal costs than big consulting companies and can often charge marginally less, they are occasionally stretched too thin, making it impossible to respond quickly to crisis situations. If an independent consultant is busy with another client, sick, on vacation, or in class, the absence of backup personnel may require your company to wait for help during an emergency. As your network grows, network unavailability and trouble with vital software are more costly. The money you thought you were conserving on an independent can be eaten up fast by reduced productivity. Progent provides an on-call source of backup support experts to insure your network remains up and running.

  • Create a Scalable Basis for Seamless Growth
    Businesses typically start with an IT architecture created on a modest budget. Lacking a strong infrastructure, band-aid fixes can get piled onto a weak foundation. When a network grows, reliability and scalability issues can hinder the productivity of the business. Such badly designed systems require careful analysis, intelligent long-term planning, and extensive IT knowledge to upgrade to a system infrastructure able to provide the stable foundation to handle current business requirements and ease downstream growth.

  • Work with Solution Providers Rather Than Technology Sellers
    Smaller companies need advice and technical education to navigate through an increasingly complex maze of technology alternatives capable of accelerating business success and improving productivity. Businesses do not need a computer consultant who is attempting to sell a certain vendor's technology. Network consulting and product selling can lead to a situation where the recommended solution is built around a profitable technology instead of the genuine needs of a business. Progent eliminates these dilemmas by offering just services rather than products. This allows Progent to align IT expertise with the real needs of clients.

How Is Progent Different from Other Service Organizations?
Progent is a Microsoft Certified Partner support company and Progent's staff size, breadth of technical knowledge, refined support tools, and familiarity with enterprise networking enable businesses to avoid the pitfalls associated with exclusive dependence on smaller service organizations, independent freelance consultants, or over-stretched in-house resources.

Progent adds value by providing:

  • Best Practices
    Progentís staff of Microsoft and Cisco Premier consultants average longer than ten years of hands-on industry experience, in the trenches of network service, performing a wide range of technical projects for an extensive array of businesses.

This ensures that you get not just world-class technical help, but also a support engineer with proven approaches for using technical knowledge to repair real-world network problems rapidly.

  • Value Pricing
    Progent's pricing model is to bill for online support and on-site visits per minute. Consequently, you are invoiced only for delivered support. Progent does not impose a more expensive rate for off-hours or urgent service, and within California or in regions where Progent provides on-premises support, Progent does not charge for travel except for urgent calls where on-site time is less than four hours. Also, Progent applies no minimum fee and requires no monthly commitment for support services provided during regular working hours.

  • Full Documentation of Delivered Services
    Progent has developed a comprehensive service reporting system that records and organizes detailed documentation for all billed services. Unlike many independent consultants or small service firms who offer minimal documentation or details of tasks performed, each service provided by Progent is tracked by full documentation. Each Progent consultant has use of the support reports sent by each staff member to every customer. The discipline of documenting and archiving service records results in more effective service and eliminates a slew of typical misfortunes such as when a support client is virtually held captive to a consultant who refuses to let go of the keys to the kingdom.

  • Remote Network Monitoring with Microsoft System Center Operations Manager
    Progent is one of the few consulting firms to offer round-the-clock remote monitoring services powered by MS Operations Manager.
