Advantages of Progent's Network Help for Companies in Montgomery
Progent's remote technical help services allow your Montgomery organization to realize the benefits of timely, enterprise-level IT support without the expense of maintaining a full-time IT organization. Your network will derive greater business worth by becoming increasingly available, efficient, and protected. Advantages to your business include:

  • Convenient virtual expansion of your on-site IT resources
    With most offices in Montgomery and throughout Alabama, nearby network service resources, whether made up of outside consultants or an internal IT staff, can handle the majority of technical problems. However, serious problems may occur when local resources are too busy or absent, and some problems may be associated with technology that is unfamiliar to your onsite support personnel. In these cases, Progent's on-call service specialists offer an easy, fast, and affordable solution to augment your regular resources and to pass on valuable knowledge to improve your capability to handle future issues in-house.

  • Reduced Reliance on Freelance Service Providers
    For IT maintenance, smaller companies often rely on independent freelance service providers. While independent service people carry smaller overhead than larger support organizations and can often charge lower rates, they are often stretched too thin, making it impossible to respond rapidly to crisis situations. If a freelance consultant is occupied with another customer, ill, on a trip, or in class, the absence of reserve personnel may require your company to wait for help during an IT crisis. As your business expands, network downtime and problems with vital software become more expensive. The money you thought you were saving on an independent can be eaten up quickly by lost productivity. Progent offers an on-call source of reserve support expertise to make sure your IT system is always available.

  • Create a Scalable Foundation for Smooth Expansion
    Companies typically start with an information architecture implemented on a shoestring budget. Without a robust framework, band-aid fixes often get piled onto a shaky foundation. When a company grows, reliability and expandability problems can hinder the productivity of the business. Such badly designed systems require careful analysis, intelligent long-term planning, and extensive technical knowledge to evolve to a network infrastructure able to provide the stable foundation to meet vital business demands and simplify downstream expansion.

  • Work with Problem Solvers Instead of Technology Sellers
    Smaller businesses need guidance and technical training to navigate through an increasingly complex maze of technology options capable of accelerating business success and improving productivity. They hardly need a network consultant who is attempting to earn a commission on a specific vendor's products. IT support and product selling can lead to a scenario where the proposed solution is built around a predetermined technology rather than the genuine needs of a business. Progent eliminates these conflicts by offering only services rather than products. This allows Progent to match IT expertise with the best needs of clients.

How Is Progent Unique from Other Service Firms?
Progent is a Microsoft Certified Partner support company and Progent's head count, depth of IT background, refined remote support tools, and familiarity with enterprise networking enable businesses to avoid the limitations associated with exclusive reliance on smaller service organizations, independent freelance service providers, or limited internal IT help.

Progent stands out by providing:

  • Best Practices
    Progentís staff of Microsoft and Cisco Certified consultants average longer than ten years of hands-on industry experience, at the forefront of IT service, executing a wide range of IT tasks for an extensive mix of clients.

This ensures that you get not just world-class IT skills, but also a consultant with field-tested approaches for applying computer knowledge to resolve actual network problems efficiently.

  • Value Pricing
    Progent's pricing policy is to bill for phone support and on-site help per minute. Consequently, you are charged only for delivered services. Progent does not impose a higher rate for after-hours or emergency support, and inside California or in regions where Progent offers in-person service, Progent does not charge for travel except for urgent calls where on-site work is less than four hours. In addition, Progent imposes no service activation fee and requires no retainer for support services provided during normal business hours. Many service firms demand substantial minimum payments or charge for every fifteen minutes or longer. Progent's one-minute granularity does away with large invoices for quick fixes so you will not be forced to allow simple problems to stay unaddressed.

  • Knowledge Transfer
    Progent is committed to knowledge transfer from Progent's consultants to customers. By educating customers to handle technical issues that are within their scope, Progent is able to concentrate on providing high-value services where Progent faces few competitors. Companies who utilize trusted independent service providers or who maintain in-house IT staffs benefit when Progent passes on knowledge about new technology and tested processes to make their networks more reliable, secure, and productive.

  • Automated Network Monitoring with Microsoft Operations Manager
    Progent is one of the only support companies to provide 24x7 network monitoring services based on Microsoft System Center Operations Manager.
