In most IT environments, only a small percentage of Help Desk service requests are resolved on the first call. Consequently, clients rarely have a positive image of Help Desks. Progent's nationwide online remote support team is modeled on Progent's proven concept of the Help Desk as a solutions-driven group of service professionals who combine the expertise and efficiency of certified engineers with the tracking and reporting advantages of modern Help Desk technology. Whether your business wants immediate, one-time access to urgent online support, a dependable ongoing Help Desk service provider, a transparent extension of your in-house Help Desk, or consulting expertise for creating or improving your own Help Desk, Progent can provide a cost-effective solution.
