Benefits of Progent's Network Help for Organizations in Lynnwood
Progent's remote technical help services enable your Lynnwood company to enjoy the benefits of timely, enterprise-grade network support without the cost of managing a full-time IT organization. Your information system will derive greater business worth by being more available, productive, and protected. Advantages to your business include:

  • Seamless remote extension of your local IT resources
    For most organizations in Lynnwood and throughout Washington, local network service resources, whether consisting of independent consultants or an internal IT staff, can take care of the majority of network issues. However, major troubles may strike when local support personnel are too busy or unavailable, and some problems may involve technology that is unfamiliar to your local support technicians. In these instances, Progent's online support specialists provide a convenient, fast, and budget-friendly way to augment your local resources and to pass on useful knowledge to increase your ability to resolve future problems locally.

  • Less Dependence on Freelance Consultants
    For IT maintenance, smaller companies commonly rely on individual freelance consultants. While freelance service people carry less overhead than larger service organizations and can often charge marginally less, they are often stretched too thin, making it difficult to respond quickly to crisis situations. If an independent consultant is busy with another client, ill, on a trip, or in training, the lack of fallback personnel may force your business to go without help during an emergency. As your company grows, network downtime and trouble with vital software become more costly. The money you thought you were saving on an independent can be eaten up quickly by lost productivity. Progent offers a reliable source of backup support expertise to make sure your IT system is always up and running.

  • Build a Scalable Basis for Seamless Expansion
    Organizations often start with an information system created on a shoestring budget. Without a proper infrastructure, slap-dash fixes can get piled onto a weak foundation. When a company grows, stability and scalability problems can hinder the productivity of the business. Such badly built systems need proper assessment, intelligent strategic planning, and extensive IT knowledge to evolve to a system architecture that can offer the stable foundation to handle critical business requirements and ease downstream growth.

  • Work with Problem Solvers Instead of Product Resellers
    Smaller offices require advice and technical education to navigate through an increasingly complex maze of product options available for accelerating business success and improving efficiency. Businesses do not need a computer engineer who is motivated to sell a certain vendor's products. IT support and product sales can lead to a scenario where the proposed solution is built around a profitable product rather than the true requirements of a client. Progent avoids these conflicts of interest by offering just services rather than products. This enables Progent to align technical expertise with the best needs of customers.

How Is Progent Different from Other Support Organizations?
Progent is a Microsoft Certified Partner support firm and Progent's number of employees, range of technical experience, refined support tools, and familiarity with corporate IT enable offices to avoid the pitfalls associated with exclusive reliance on smaller consulting organizations, independent freelance service providers, or limited in-house IT help.

Progent adds value by offering:

  • Best Practices
    Progentís team of Microsoft and Cisco Premier consultants average more than a decade of hands-on professional background, at the forefront of IT service, executing a wide range of technical tasks for a large array of clients. Each Progent support professional shares a refined collection of personal best practices which are combined into company-wide best practices standards that Progent teaches its support team. This means that you get not only world-class technical capability, but also a consultant with field-tested approaches for applying computer knowledge to resolve real-world network problems rapidly.

  • Value Pricing
    Progent's pricing model is to charge for online support and in-person help by the minute. As a result, you owe just for received support. Progent does not impose a higher rate for after-hours or priority support, and within California or in regions where Progent provides on-premises support, Progent does not charge for travel except for urgent calls where on-site time is less than four hours. Also, Progent applies no startup fee and asks no monthly commitment for services delivered during normal working hours. Many service firms demand substantial minimum payments or charge for every fifteen minutes or longer. Progent's one-minute granularity does away with big bills for fast repairs so you will not be forced to allow less critical problems to fester.

  • Full Records of Delivered Services
    Progent has created a comprehensive service reporting system that stores and organizes detailed documentation for all delivered services. Unlike many independent consultants or local service firms who offer minimal documentation or details of tasks performed, every service provided by Progent is accompanied by comprehensive documentation. Each Progent consultant has access to the service reports transmitted by every staff member to each customer. The discipline of documenting and archiving support activity results in more effective support and avoids a slew of common problems such as when a support customer is effectively held hostage to a consultant who refuses to let go of vital service information.

  • 24x7 Network Monitoring with MS System Center Operations Manager
    Progent is one of the few IT service companies to offer 24x7 system monitoring services based on Microsoft Operations Manager. Microsoft System Center Operations Manager causes your computer maintenance to be anticipatory rather than reactive. By uncovering possible problems before they result in lost productivity, network monitoring can keep your IT network from stressful and expensive availability losses.
