Even if your Montgomery organization works with a local freelance support technician or maintains an in-house IT staff that can deal with typical computer problems, Progentís Microsoft certified engineers are available to provide an easy and seamless virtual expansion of your local resources in cases when your usual service personnel either don't have the time or the expertise to deal with unexpected network crises or particularly complicated integration projects.

Benefits of Progent's Network Help for Offices in Montgomery
Progent's remote technical help services allow your Montgomery business to experience the advantages of on-call, expert IT support without the cost of managing an in-house IT organization. Your information system will acquire greater business worth by becoming more available, productive, and secure. Benefits to your business include:

  • Seamless virtual expansion of your on-site IT resources
    For most organizations in Montgomery or anywhere in Alabama, local network service providers, whether made up of independent consultants or an internal maintenance staff, can resolve the majority of network problems. On the other hand, IT crises can strike when local resources are overstretched or unavailable, and some problems may be associated with technology that is unfamiliar to your usual service technicians. In these instances, Progent's on-call service experts provide a convenient, fast, and budget-friendly solution to supplement your local help and to convey valuable information to improve your capability to resolve downstream issues locally.

  • Reduced Reliance on Freelance Consultants
    For network maintenance, smaller offices often rely on independent freelance consultants. Although freelance consultants carry less overhead than larger support companies and can afford to charge lower rates, they are occasionally overextended, making it difficult to respond rapidly to crisis situations. If a freelance service provider is busy with another customer, sick, on vacation, or in training, the absence of backup help may force your company to wait for assistance during an IT crisis. As your business expands, system unavailability and trouble with vital applications become more expensive. The budget you thought you were saving on a freelancer can be eaten up quickly by reduced productivity. Progent provides a reliable source of backup support experts to make sure your IT system remains available.

  • Build a Solid Foundation for Seamless Growth
    Businesses typically start with an information architecture implemented on a modest budget. Lacking a proper framework, slap-dash fixes often get thrown on top of a weak foundation. When a network grows, stability and scalability problems can impede the success of the business. These poorly built systems need careful assessment, smart long-term planning, and broad-based technical expertise to upgrade to a network architecture that can provide the solid foundation to meet critical business requirements and ease future growth.

  • Work with Problem Solvers Instead of Product Resellers
    Smaller businesses need guidance and technical training to navigate through an increasingly complicated maze of product alternatives available for promoting business success and enhancing efficiency. These companies hardly need a computer consultant who is motivated to earn a commission on a certain vendor's products. IT support and product selling can lead to a situation where the proposed solution is built around a predetermined technology instead of the genuine needs of a business. Progent avoids these conflicts by selling just services instead of products. This allows Progent to match technical consulting with the best interests of clients.

What Makes Progent Unique from Other Service Organizations?
Progent is a Microsoft Partner consulting firm and Progent's head count, depth of IT background, refined remote support tools, and understanding of corporate IT allow businesses to avoid the pitfalls of exclusive dependence on smaller consulting organizations, individual freelance service providers, or limited in-house resources.

Progent stands out by providing:

  • Best Practices
    Progentís staff of Microsoft and Cisco Premier Certified experts average longer than a decade of real-world industry experience, at the forefront of network support, executing a broad variety of technical projects for an extensive array of businesses. Every Progent support professional shares a proven collection of personal best practices which are incorporated into company-wide best practices standards that Progent instills in its consulting staff. This means that you get not just expert technical help, but also a support engineer with proven methods for applying computer knowledge to repair real-world IT problems quickly.

  • Value Pricing
    Progent's pricing model is to charge for online support and in-person visits by the minute. Consequently, you owe only for received services. Progent does not demand a higher rate for off-hours or urgent support, and inside California or in regions where Progent offers on-site support, Progent does not charge for travel time except for urgent support where on-site time is less than four hours. In addition, Progent applies no startup fee and requires no retainer for support services provided during normal business hours. Many service organizations impose substantial minimum fees or charge for each quarter hour or longer. Progent's one-minute granularity avoids large invoices for quick fixes so you will not be tempted to permit minor problems to stay unaddressed.

  • Information Transfer
    Progent is committed to knowledge transfer from Progent's support experts to customers. By teaching customers to deal with problems that are within their comfort zone, Progent can concentrate on delivering hard-to-find services where Progent has little competition. Companies who utilize familiar independent consultants or who maintain internal support personnel benefit when Progent passes on information about critical technology and proven methodologies to make their IT environments more reliable, protected, and productive.

  • 24x7 Server Monitoring with MS Operations Manager
    Progent is one of the only support companies to provide round-the-clock network monitoring services based on MS System Center Operations Manager. Microsoft System Center Operations Manager causes your network maintenance to be anticipatory rather than reactive.
