Advantages of Progent's Network Help for Organizations in Lexington-Fayette
Progent's remote IT consulting services allow your Lexington-Fayette company to experience the benefits of on-call, enterprise-grade network support without the cost of managing a full-time IT organization. Your information system will derive added business value by being increasingly reliable, productive, and protected. Benefits to your company include:

  • Convenient remote expansion of your on-site IT resources
    For most offices in Lexington-Fayette or anywhere in Kentucky, local computer support resources, whether made up of freelance consultants or a full-time IT staff, can deal with typical technical problems. On the other hand, major troubles may occur when local resources are overstretched or unavailable, and some trouble may involve technology that is unfamiliar to your usual support personnel. In these situations, Progent's on-call support experts give you a convenient, fast, and budget-friendly way to supplement your regular help and to transfer useful information to improve your capability to resolve downstream issues in-house.

  • Less Reliance on Freelance Consultants
    For network support, smaller businesses commonly rely on independent freelance service providers. Although freelance consultants have smaller overhead than larger service organizations and can afford to charge marginally less, they are often overextended, making it hard to respond quickly to urgent situations. If a freelance service provider is occupied with another client, ill, on a trip, or in class, the absence of reserve personnel may force your company to wait for help during an IT crisis. As your company expands, network downtime and problems with critical applications are more costly. The money you thought you were saving on a freelancer can be eaten up fast by lost productivity. Progent offers an on-call source of backup support expertise to make sure your IT system stays available.

  • Create a Scalable Foundation for Seamless Expansion
    Businesses typically begin with an information architecture implemented on a shoestring budget. Without a scalable framework, band-aid repairs can get thrown onto an unstable foundation. As a network grows, stability and scalability issues can hinder the productivity of the business. Such poorly built environments require proper assessment, intelligent strategic planning, and broad-based IT knowledge to upgrade to a network infrastructure able to offer the solid foundation to handle critical business demands and ease future growth.

  • Work with Problem Solvers Rather Than Technology Sellers
    Smaller businesses require guidance and technical training to navigate through an ever more complex maze of technology alternatives capable of accelerating business success and improving efficiency. They hardly need a computer consultant who is attempting to earn a commission on a certain vendor's technology. IT support and product selling can result in a scenario where the recommended solution is designed around a predetermined technology instead of the genuine requirements of a business. Progent avoids these dilemmas by offering just services instead of products. This allows Progent to align technical consulting with the real interests of clients.

How Is Progent Unique from Other Service Firms?
Progent is a Microsoft Partner support firm and Progent's staff size, depth of IT experience, fine tuned remote support tools, and understanding of corporate IT allow businesses to escape the limitations associated with excessive dependence on smaller service organizations, independent freelance consultants, or limited internal IT help.

Progent adds value by providing:

  • In-depth Expertise in Microsoft's Complete Range of Server Platforms
    Progent offers in-depth support for Microsoftís powerful server products with services such as Windows Server 2019 migration consulting, Windows Server 2016 hybrid cloud solutions, Windows Server 2012 R2 migration and integration support services, Windows Server 2008 upgrades, Windows 2003 Server maintenance, MS Exchange Server 2016 migration, Microsoft Exchange Server 2013 consulting, Microsoft Exchange Server 2010 support, Microsoft Exchange Server 2007 and Exchange Server 2003 migration, plus Microsoft SQL Server 2017 migration, SQL Server 2016 integration, SQL Server 2014 support, and Microsoft SQL 2012 maintenance.

  • Value Pricing
    Progent's pricing model is to bill for remote service and on-site visits by the minute. As a result, you are billed exclusively for delivered services. Progent does not demand a more expensive rate for off-hours or priority service, and within California or in regions where Progent offers on-premises service, Progent does not bill for travel except for emergency calls where on-site work is less than four hours. Also, Progent applies no startup fee and asks no retainer for support services delivered during normal business hours. Many support firms demand substantial minimum payments or charge for each fifteen minutes or longer. Progent's fine granularity avoids big bills for fast solutions so you won't be tempted to permit less critical problems to fester.

  • Complete Records of Delivered Services
    Progent has created a comprehensive support reporting system that records and formats complete documentation for all billed support activities. Unlike some independent consultants or local service organizations who provide scant documentation or specifics of services performed, every service delivered by Progent is accompanied by full documentation. Each Progent consultant has access to the support reports sent by every consultant to every customer. The practice of detailing and organizing service activity results in more effective service and eliminates a slew of common misfortunes 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 Network Monitoring with Microsoft Operations Manager
    Progent is one of the only support firms to offer round-the-clock system tracking services based on Microsoft Operations Manager. MS System Center Operations Manager allows your computer support to be anticipatory instead of reactive. By anticipating possible issues before they cause lost productivity, system monitoring can keep your IT network from stressful and expensive availability disruptions.
