For organizations and new ventures in Indianapolis or anywhere in the state of Indiana, Progent's online network support specialists are ready to provide effective and economical IT support whenever your company has to have it.

Advantages of Progent's Network Help for Companies in Indianapolis
Progent's online support services enable your Indianapolis business to experience the benefits of on-call, world-class IT support without the cost of maintaining a full-time IT organization. Your network will derive greater strategic value by becoming more available, efficient, and secure. Benefits to your business include:

  • Seamless virtual expansion of your local IT resources
    For most businesses in Indianapolis or anywhere in Indiana, nearby computer service providers, whether represented by independent consultants or a full-time IT staff, can solve typical network issues. However, serious problems sometimes strike when your regular resources are too busy or absent, and some trouble may be associated with IT products that is unfamiliar to your usual support technicians. In these instances, Progent's online service experts offer an easy, quick, and economical way to augment your local resources and to convey valuable knowledge to improve your capability to deal with future issues locally.

  • Reduced Reliance on Individual Service Providers
    For IT support, smaller organizations commonly rely on individual freelance service providers. While freelance consultants carry less overhead than big consulting organizations and can afford to charge lower rates, they are sometimes overextended, making it hard to respond quickly to crisis situations. If an independent service provider is occupied with another customer, ill, on vacation, or in training, the absence of reserve personnel may force your company to go without assistance during an IT crisis. As your company expands, system unavailability and trouble with critical applications are more costly. The money you thought you were saving on an independent can be eaten up quickly by lost productivity. Progent provides an on-call source of backup service expertise to make sure your network remains up and running.

  • Build a Scalable Foundation for Seamless Growth
    Companies typically start with an information architecture implemented on a shoestring budget. Without a robust infrastructure, slap-dash fixes often get thrown onto an unstable foundation. As a company grows, reliability and expandability problems can hinder the productivity of the organization. Such badly built environments need careful analysis, smart long-term planning, and wide IT expertise to upgrade to a system infrastructure that can deliver the solid foundation to meet critical business requirements and ease future growth.

  • Work with Solution Providers Instead of Technology Sellers
    Smaller organizations need guidance and technical education to negotiate an increasingly complex maze of technology alternatives available for accelerating business growth and enhancing productivity. They hardly need a computer engineer who is attempting to sell a specific vendor's technology. Network support and product selling can lead to a situation where the proposed solution is designed around a profitable product instead of the true requirements of a business. Progent eliminates these conflicts by selling only services instead of products. This enables Progent to align technical expertise with the real needs of customers.

How Is Progent Unique from Other Support Organizations?
Progent is a Microsoft Partner consulting company and Progent's number of employees, depth of IT background, refined remote support software, and familiarity with enterprise networking enable offices to avoid the pitfalls associated with excessive reliance on smaller consulting organizations, independent freelance service providers, or over-stretched internal IT help.

Progent stands out by providing:

  • Best Practices
    Progentís staff of Microsoft and Cisco Certified experts average longer than ten years of real-world professional background, in the trenches of IT support, performing a broad variety of IT tasks for a large array of clients. Each Progent consultant shares a proven set of personal best practices which are incorporated into company-wide best practices standards that Progent teaches its support personnel. This guarantees that you get not just expert IT capability, but also a support engineer with field-tested methods for using computer knowledge to repair actual IT problems efficiently.

  • Value Pricing
    Progent's pricing model is to bill for remote support and on-premises help per minute. As a result, you are invoiced just for received support.

In addition, Progent imposes no initialization fee and requires no retainer for support services delivered during normal business hours. Many support firms impose large minimum fees or charge for every quarter hour or longer. Progent's one-minute granularity does away with large bills for quick solutions so you will not be forced to allow minor problems to stay unaddressed.

  • Full Records of Delivered Services
    Progent has developed a comprehensive support reporting system that records and formats complete documentation for all billed support activities. Unlike many independent consultants or small support firms who provide scant documentation or details of services done, every service delivered by Progent is accompanied by comprehensive documentation. Each Progent consultant has access to the support reports transmitted by each staff member to every client. The discipline of detailing and archiving service activity allows more effective support and eliminates a variety of common problems such as when a service customer is virtually held captive to a consultant who refuses to let go of the keys to the kingdom.

  • Automated Server Monitoring with MS System Center Operations Manager
    Progent is one of the only IT service firms to offer 24x7 system monitoring services based on MS System Center Operations Manager.
