Staffing and managing an internal Help Desk Call Center that can provide timely and effective desktop support is beyond the budgets of most small businesses. Even large organizations often find that their in-house Call Centers spend more time tracking problems than solving them. When this situation exists, the real cost of each incident is high both because of the time spent by the support staff and the productivity lost by the worker who reported the problem. Progent's Help Desk outsourcing services are results driven and can cut support costs, reduce management hassle, and improve productivity.
Progent's Help Desk Outsourcing Support Services are designed especially for small businesses who need immediate access to a Help Desk Call Center with expert phone support and full escalation capability but who have to work within a limited IT budget. Key features of Progent's Help Desk Outsourcing Support Services include:
Fully Staffed Call Center for desktop PCs provides you with fast access to Microsoft-certified engineers who can provide urgent technical support or advanced consulting services. Progent's seasoned remote support engineers have the knowledge and experience to resolve most problems on the first call, saving you time and money and maximizing your productivity.
Remote Desktop Access permits Progent's technical support specialists to have control of a client's desktop computer so that an engineer is virtually sitting in front of your PC while talking to you and troubleshooting your problem. This saves time identifying and correcting problems and verifying results.
Baseline Assessment is a recommended service that allows Progent to inventory and document desktop configuration, network infrastructure, and application environment in order to provide Progent's Call Center staff with useful background information for solving problems and improving desktop efficiency.
Prioritization and Escalation expertise allows Progent's Call Center staff to determine which desktop problems are central rather than dependent and to apply technical resources cost effectively to resolve reported issues. The availability of a broad range of application and system experts, including Cisco-certified CCIE network engineers, allows Progent to fix even the toughest problem.
24x7 Online Support is available through Progent's affordably priced Extended Hours Support Program, which offers round-the-clock access to the Technical Response Center to minimize network downtime. Services available outside regular business hours include resolving problems with Microsoft-based server products, Windows desktop support, help with Microsoft Office applications, network and system backup and restore, and basic routing and switching support for Cisco networking products.
Virtual Call Center Services add transparency to Progent's Help Desk outsourcing services by allowing Progent's technical experts to operate as a remote, seamless extension of your in-house IT support group. This service can include dedicated phone numbers, a custom greeting, automatic call routing to pre-assigned support staff, and custom reporting to your IT management. Progent's Virtual Call Center services can be used as your main Help Desk, as a safety valve to handle overflow work when your regular support staff is fully occupied, or as an escalation option for problems that require special expertise not available in house.
Per-Minute Billing provide fine granularity for the pricing of Progent's remote desktop support services. This ensures that quick fixes, which are common with desktop support, translate to small invoices so clients are not charged for services they never actually received. Progent's pricing model also eliminates retainers for support services provided during regular business hours, hourly minimums, and special fees for service startup or termination. Exceptions to Progent's by-the-minute billing are special fixed-price service packages such as Security Vulnerability Scanning that are billed by the job and offered at a substantial discount from Progent's standard billing rates.
Application Experts Team maintained by Progent is composed of certified specialists who offer in-depth knowledge about vital business applications. These experts are available to provide remote desktop support to resolve issues beyond the scope of typical Help Desk technicians. Practice areas supported by Progent's Expert Team include:
