For small office network systems located anywhere in the state of Minnesota, Progent's Microsoft and Cisco certified technicians can deliver remote phone assistance and troubleshooting to repair your computer system troubles quickly and cost effectively. Progent has developed top-notch skills, software tools, and support knowledge bases to troubleshoot and fix computer network problems while avoiding the cost and time delays associated with in-person service visits.

If your Minnesota company is situated beyond the larger metropolitan areas such as Minneapolis, St. Paul, Rochester, Duluth, or Bloomington, your local network support options may be limited in technical capability, or not available during an emergency. This can result in a network environment that is unpredictable or causing wasted time due to technical problems going unresolved for too long. Progentís group of expert network professionals average more than 10 years of real-world computer industry experience, in the trenches of network support, performing a large variety of technical projects for a extensive range of clients. This means you obtain not just the technical expertise needed for the task, but an expert with proven methods for applying that expertise to deliver cost effective network solutions.

Easy Engagement and Pricing Model
Progent's easy per-minute billing policy requires no complicated contracts, retainers or hidden charges. Many other support companies have minimum billable time or other extra charges that increase service. For remote support from Progent during regular business hours, you pay only for the actual time spent resolving your issue. If it only requires ten minutes to resolve your issue, then you are only billed for ten minutes. For regularly scheduled onsite service work booked more than twenty-four hours in advance, you pay only for the time when Progent's team member is actually on-site solving your problems. Just Progent's value priced per-minute rate. For emergency same-day on-site service calls, you may have to pay for our expertís travel time, but never an increased emergency rate. Since Progent has a large pool of expert consultants located throughout the entire service territory, an available consultant is typically close by to help. Progent can also dispatch onsite service to most zip codes in the United States within 24 hours of answering a support call.
