Progent's Virtual Help Desk
Larger companies typically want help desk services to be a seamless extension of the corporate IT support organization. Client access to the help desk, delivery of support, problem escalation, ticket tracking, and maintenance of the support database should be consistent regardless of whether IT problems are resolved via in-house resources or through an outsourced help desk service. Progent's Virtual Desk Services are designed to address all these issues.

Progent's Virtual Help Desk services are an integrated extension of your internal IT service staff. This can include advanced call center features such as a dedicated phone number with customer-specific greeting. Progent can also rout calls automatically to staff members who are specifically set up and trained to support your account. In addition, Progent's staff can use and manage trouble tickets with any customer trouble ticket system for transparent integration with your internal support services.
