Advantages of Progent's IT Support for Offices in Indianapolis
Progent's online technical help services enable your Indianapolis company to enjoy the benefits of timely, enterprise-level network support without the expense of managing a full-time IT staff. Your information system will derive added business worth by becoming increasingly reliable, efficient, and protected. Advantages to your business include:

  • Seamless virtual extension of your on-site IT resources
    For most companies in Indianapolis and throughout Indiana, nearby computer support providers, whether made up of independent consultants or an internal IT staff, can resolve the majority of technical problems. On the other hand, serious problems sometimes spring up when your regular support personnel are too busy or absent, and some problems may stem from IT products that is beyond the scope of your local service people. In these cases, Progent's online support professionals give you a convenient, quick, and budget-friendly way to augment your regular help and to pass on valuable information to improve your ability to deal with downstream issues in-house.

  • Reduced Reliance on Individual Service Providers
    For network support, smaller offices often depend on individual freelance consultants. While independent service people carry less overhead than larger support organizations and can often charge marginally less, they are sometimes stretched too thin, making it impossible to respond rapidly to urgent situations. If an independent consultant is busy with another client, sick, on a trip, or in class, the lack of backup personnel may require your business to wait for assistance during an emergency. As your network grows, system downtime and trouble with critical software become more expensive. The money you thought you were saving on an independent can be consumed quickly by lost productivity. Progent offers a reliable source of backup service experts to make sure your IT system remains available.

  • Create a Scalable Basis for Smooth Growth
    Companies typically begin with an information system created on a shoestring budget. Without a proper infrastructure, band-aid repairs can get thrown on top of an unstable foundation. When a network grows, stability and expandability issues can impede the productivity of the organization. These poorly designed systems require careful assessment, smart long-term planning, and extensive technical knowledge to upgrade to a network infrastructure that can offer the stable foundation to meet current business demands and ease future expansion.

  • Work with Problem Solvers Instead of Technology Sellers
    Smaller organizations need advice and technical training to negotiate an increasingly complicated array of product options available for promoting business success and enhancing efficiency. These companies do not need a network consultant who is attempting to sell a specific vendor's technology. IT support and product selling can lead to a situation where the recommended solution is designed around a profitable technology instead of the genuine requirements of a business. Progent avoids these conflicts of interest by selling just services instead of products. This allows Progent to match technical consulting with the best needs of clients.

How Is Progent Different from Other Support Organizations?
Progent is a Microsoft Partner support company and Progent's head count, breadth of technical background, refined remote support tools, and familiarity with enterprise networking allow businesses to avoid the limitations of exclusive dependence on smaller consulting firms, independent freelance consultants, or over-stretched internal resources.

Progent adds value by providing:

  • Best Practices
    Progentís staff of Microsoft and Cisco Premier experts average longer than ten years of hands-on professional experience, in the trenches of IT support, performing a broad variety of IT tasks for a large array of clients. Every Progent consultant shares a refined collection of personal best practices which are combined into company-wide best practices training that Progent instills in its support personnel. This ensures that you get not just world-class technical skills, but also a consultant with field-tested approaches for applying computer knowledge to fix real-world IT problems quickly.

  • Value Pricing
    Progent's pricing model is to bill for online support and on-premises visits per minute. As a result, you are charged just for received support. Progent does not impose a higher rate for off-hours or urgent support, and inside California or in areas where Progent provides in-person service, Progent does not charge for travel except for urgent calls where on-site time is less than four hours. In addition, Progent applies no service activation fee and asks no monthly commitment for support services provided during regular working hours. Many support firms impose substantial minimum fees or charge for each quarter hour or longer. Progent's one-minute granularity avoids big invoices for fast fixes so you will not be tempted to allow less critical problems to stay unaddressed.

  • Full Documentation of IT Services
    Progent has created a comprehensive service reporting system that records and organizes complete documentation for all delivered services. Unlike many freelance consultants or local service organizations who provide minimal documentation or details of services performed, each service delivered by Progent is tracked by comprehensive documentation. Each Progent staff member has use of the support documentation sent by each staff member to every client. The practice of detailing and archiving support activity results in more efficient service and avoids a variety of typical problems such as when a support client is effectively held captive to a consultant who wonít release the keys to the kingdom.

  • Remote Server Monitoring with Microsoft System Center Operations Manager
    Progent is one of the few IT service firms to provide round-the-clock system monitoring services powered by MS Operations Manager. MS Operations Manager allows your computer support to be anticipatory instead of reactive. By anticipating possible issues before they cause downtime, system monitoring can save your information network from stressful and expensive service disruptions.
