Progent's Standard Help Desk Services
Small businesses rarely have the staffing, expertise or budget to set up and maintain an in-house Help Desk that provides fast response, ticketing and tracking, clear assignment of responsibilities, efficient escalation, and full reporting. Progent's Standard Help Desk Services leverage Progent's nationwide network of support experts along with enterprise-class ticketing and tracking technology to provide an affordable, modern Help Desk call center.

Progent's Standard Help Desk Services provide a comprehensive solution that handles all aspects of online Level 1 desktop support from service requests through trouble ticket generation, screen sharing, problem resolution, and reporting. A browser-based User's Service Portal allows clients to check or update the status of their current tickets, add more information, and append screenshots and other attachments. Support services are provided at a substantial discount off Progent's normal Level 1 desktop service rates, and Progent offers the option of fast as-needed escalation to Level 2 and Level 3 IT experts to handle complex issues. Progent uses pooled resources to deliver responsive support during regular hours and as an extra-cost option can provide dedicated staff and/or extended hours support. Progent also offers various remote monitoring and management (RMM) and backup services. (See ProSight remote monitoring and management (RMM) services.)

The TRC provides the pool of seasoned desktop engineers who service the end users enrolled in Progent's Standard Help Desk program. The TRC uses the leading Professional Services Automation (PSA) software platform to handle ticketing, progress, ownership, escalation and reporting. This prevents problems from falling through the cracks and gives clients clear visibility of all services delivered. The TRC is committed to a 90% live-answer rate and allows Progent's Standard Help Desk Services to offer a 60-minute SLA. Standard support hours are 5am to 7pm PST, five days a week. Extended hours support and onsite service are available at extra cost. To learn more about the TRC, refer to TRC Customer Commitment.

Service Levels
Progent offers three levels of remote support, which correspond to industry standard Tier 1 through Tier 3 support. Level 1 desktop support is included with Standard Help Desk Services, and Level 2 and Level 3 support are available based on prior approval by the client. The depth and technical breadth of Progent's Team of subject matter experts (SMEs) allows fast and effective escalation and makes it possible for small businesses to rely on Progent as a one-stop source for most IT issues.

Service levels are defined as:

  • Level 1 Support: Filters Help Desk calls and provides basic support and troubleshooting, such as password resets, printer configurations, break/fix instructions,'ticket routing and escalation to Level 2 and Level 3 support. A Level 1 tech gathers and analyzes information about the user's issue and determines the best way to resolve the problem. Level 1 may also provide support for identified Level 2 and Level 3 issues where configuration solutions have already been documented.
  • Level 2 Support: Generally handles break/fix, configuration issues, troubleshooting, software installations, hardware repair (including in-house repair or coordinating depot services). They'deal with escalated issues that Level 1 support is not equipped to handle. Level 2 will sometimes escalate to Level 3, depending on the issue and the way the Help Desk operates.
  • Level 3 Support: Troubleshooting, configuration, database administration, and repair for server, network, Data Center, email, file shares, and other infrastructure issues. Besides always having the ability to deploy solutions to new problems, a Level 3 tech usually has the most expertise.
