How Your Fresno Business Can Contact Progent's Online Service Professionals
To contact Progent about urgent remote support with Windows, Apple macOS and OS X, or Linux/UNIX networks, visit Progent's Emergency Online Support, telephone 1-800-993-9400, or refer to Contact Progent. For organizations and new businesses in Fresno or throughout the state of California, Progent's phone-based computer support engineers can deliver effective and affordable system help the moment your organization has to have it. Long experience offering online technical assistance has earned Microsoft Partner status for Progent's consulting experts and has enabled Progent to acquire world-class troubleshooting capability and to fine tune remote connectivity tools to repair network problems quickly while eliminating the cost and lost time that comes with on-premises support calls.

Even if your Fresno office relies on a regular independent support technician or maintains an in-house IT staff that can deal with the majority of network issues, Progentís Microsoft certified consultants can still provide an easy and transparent remote extension of your on-site resources for situations when your regular service personnel either don't have the availability or the experience to solve unexpected network emergencies or particularly complex integration problems.

Benefits of Progent's Network Help for Offices in Fresno
Progent's remote technical help services allow your Fresno organization to have the benefits of timely, enterprise-grade network support without the expense of maintaining a full-time IT staff. Your network will acquire greater strategic worth by being increasingly reliable, efficient, and protected. Benefits to your company include:

  • Convenient virtual expansion of your local IT resources
    With most businesses in Fresno and throughout California, local computer service resources, whether made up of independent consultants or a full-time IT staff, can take care of typical network issues. However, serious problems might strike when your regular support personnel are overstretched or absent, and some problems may be associated with technology that is unfamiliar to your onsite support technicians. In these situations, Progent's online support specialists give you an easy, quick, and affordable way to augment your regular resources and to pass on useful information to improve your ability to deal with downstream issues locally.

  • Reduced Dependence on Individual Service Providers
    For network support, smaller offices commonly depend on independent freelance consultants. While independent service people carry smaller internal costs than larger consulting organizations and can often charge marginally less, they are occasionally stretched too thin, making it impossible to respond rapidly to crisis situations. If an independent consultant is busy with another customer, sick, on vacation, or in class, the lack of backup help may force your business to go without help during an emergency. As your business expands, system unavailability and trouble with critical applications become more costly. The budget you thought you were saving on an independent can be consumed quickly by lost productivity. Progent offers a reliable source of backup support experts to insure your network remains available.

  • Build a Solid Basis for Smooth Expansion
    Companies typically begin with an IT system implemented on a modest budget. Lacking a scalable infrastructure, band-aid fixes can get piled onto a shaky foundation. As a network grows, stability and expandability issues can hinder the success of the organization. Such badly designed environments need proper assessment, intelligent strategic planning, and extensive technical knowledge to evolve to a system infrastructure able to deliver the stable foundation to handle critical business requirements and ease future growth.

  • Work with Problem Solvers Rather Than Technology Vendors
    Smaller companies need advice and technical training to negotiate an ever more complicated maze of product options available for promoting business success and improving efficiency. Businesses hardly need a network consultant who is trying to resell a certain vendor's products. IT support and product selling can lead to a scenario where the recommended solution is built around a profitable product instead of the true requirements of a client. Progent eliminates these conflicts by selling only services rather than products. This enables Progent to align technical consulting with the best interests of clients.

What Makes Progent Unique from Other Support Firms?
Progent is a Microsoft Partner consulting company and Progent's number of employees, breadth of IT knowledge, refined support software, and understanding of enterprise networking allow businesses to avoid the pitfalls of excessive reliance on smaller service organizations, individual freelance service providers, or over-stretched internal resources.

Progent adds value by providing:

  • Proven Methodology
    Progentís staff of Microsoft and Cisco Premier Certified experts average more than ten years of hands-on industry background, in the trenches of IT support, performing a broad variety of technical projects for a large mix of customers.

This guarantees that you get not just expert technical capability, but also a support engineer with proven methods for applying technical knowledge to solve real-world IT problems quickly.

  • Value Pricing
    Progent's pricing policy is to bill for phone support and on-premises help by the minute. As a result, you are charged only for received services. Progent does not impose a more expensive rate for after-hours or urgent service, and within California or in areas where Progent provides on-site service, Progent does not charge for travel except for emergency support where on-site work is less than four hours. In addition, Progent imposes no initialization charge and requires no retainer for services delivered during normal working hours. Many service firms impose substantial minimum fees or charge for each fifteen minutes or longer. Progent's fine granularity avoids large invoices for fast repairs so you will not be tempted to allow less critical problems to fester.

  • Information Transfer
    Progent practices knowledge transfer from Progent's support experts to customers. By educating customers to resolve technical issues that are within their comfort zone, Progent can focus on delivering hard-to-find services where Progent faces little competition. Companies who utilize familiar freelance service providers or who maintain in-house support staffs benefit when Progent transfers knowledge about critical technology and tested processes to make their IT environments more reliable, protected, and productive.
