Advantages of Progent's IT Support for Businesses in Lincoln
Progent's online IT consulting services enable your Lincoln business to have the advantages of timely, world-class IT support without the expense of maintaining an in-house IT staff. Your information system will acquire greater business value by being increasingly reliable, efficient, and secure. Benefits to your business include:

  • Convenient remote expansion of your on-site IT resources
    For most businesses in Lincoln and throughout Nebraska, local computer service providers, whether consisting of outside consultants or an internal IT staff, can resolve the majority of technical problems. However, IT crises might strike when local support personnel are overstretched or unavailable, and some problems may be associated with IT products that is beyond the scope of your usual support personnel. In these instances, Progent's on-call support professionals offer a convenient, fast, and affordable way to supplement your regular resources and to convey valuable information to increase your ability to handle downstream issues in-house.

  • Reduced Dependence on Individual Service Providers
    For IT maintenance, smaller offices often depend on independent freelance consultants. Although freelance service people carry smaller overhead than big service organizations and can often charge marginally less, they are occasionally overbooked, making it hard to respond quickly to urgent situations. If a freelance consultant is busy with another customer, sick, on a trip, or in training, the absence of reserve help may require your company to wait for help during an IT crisis. As your business expands, network downtime and trouble with vital applications are more expensive. The budget you thought you were conserving on an independent can be eaten up quickly by lost productivity. Progent provides an on-call source of reserve service experts to insure your IT system is always available.

  • Create a Solid Basis for Smooth Growth
    Organizations typically start with an information architecture created on a shoestring budget. Without a proper infrastructure, slap-dash fixes can get thrown onto an unstable foundation. When a network grows, reliability and expandability issues can impede the success of the organization. Such badly designed environments require careful analysis, intelligent strategic planning, and broad-based IT expertise to upgrade to a system infrastructure able to deliver the stable foundation to meet vital business requirements and simplify downstream expansion.

  • Work with Problem Solvers Rather Than Technology Resellers
    Smaller offices need advice and technical training to negotiate an increasingly complex maze of product options available for promoting business growth and enhancing efficiency. Businesses hardly need a network consultant who is trying to sell a certain vendor's technology. Network consulting and product sales can result in a scenario where the recommended solution is designed around a predetermined product instead of the true requirements of a business. Progent avoids these conflicts by offering just services instead of products. This enables Progent to match IT consulting with the best needs of customers.

What Makes Progent Unique from Other Service Firms?
Progent is a Microsoft Partner consulting company and Progent's head count, range of technical background, refined remote support software, and familiarity with corporate IT allow businesses to escape the pitfalls associated with excessive dependence on smaller service firms, individual freelance service providers, or limited internal resources.

  • Value Pricing
    Progent's pricing model is to bill for phone service and on-premises visits by the minute. Consequently, you pay just for received services.

In addition, Progent imposes no service activation fee and asks no retainer for services provided during normal business hours. Many service firms impose large minimum fees or charge for every quarter hour or longer.

  • Full Records of IT Services
    Progent has created a sophisticated support reporting system that records and organizes detailed documentation for all billed services. Unlike many freelance consultants or local service firms who offer scant documentation or details of tasks done, each service delivered by Progent is accompanied by full documentation. Each Progent consultant has use of the support documentation transmitted by every consultant to every client. The practice of detailing and organizing support records results in more efficient support and avoids a variety of common misfortunes such as when a service customer is effectively held hostage to a consultant who refuses to release the keys to the kingdom.

  • 24x7 Server Monitoring with MS Operations Manager
    Progent is one of the few consulting firms to offer 24x7 remote tracking services powered by Microsoft Operations Manager.
