Benefits of Progent's IT Support for Companies in Montgomery
Progent's online IT consulting services allow your Montgomery organization to experience the benefits of on-call, enterprise-class IT support without the expense of maintaining an in-house IT staff. Your information system will derive added strategic worth by being more available, efficient, and secure. Benefits to your business include:

  • Seamless virtual expansion of your on-site support resources
    For most offices in Montgomery or anywhere in Alabama, local computer service providers, whether represented by independent consultants or an in-house IT staff, can take care of the majority of network issues. However, IT crises may spring up when your regular resources are too busy or unavailable, and some trouble may involve technology that is beyond the scope of your local service people. In these instances, Progent's online service specialists offer an easy, quick, and budget-friendly way to supplement your regular help and to transfer useful information to improve your capability to resolve downstream issues locally.

  • Reduced Dependence on Individual Consultants
    For IT maintenance, smaller offices commonly depend on individual freelance service providers. While independent service people carry less overhead than big service companies and can often charge lower rates, they are occasionally overbooked, making it difficult to respond quickly to urgent situations. If a freelance consultant is busy with another customer, sick, on vacation, or in training, the lack of fallback help may require your company to go without help during an emergency. As your company expands, system downtime and trouble with vital applications become more costly. The budget you thought you were saving on a freelancer can be eaten up fast by lost productivity. Progent offers an on-call source of reserve support experts to insure your network is always up and running.

  • Create a Solid Basis for Seamless Expansion
    Companies often begin with an IT architecture created on a shoestring budget. Lacking a scalable framework, slap-dash repairs can get thrown on top of a shaky foundation. When a company grows, stability and expandability problems can hinder the productivity of the organization. Such badly designed environments need careful analysis, smart long-term planning, and extensive IT expertise to upgrade to a network infrastructure able to deliver the stable foundation to meet current business demands and ease future expansion.

  • Work with Problem Solvers Rather Than Product Vendors
    Smaller businesses require guidance and technical education to navigate through an ever more complex array of technology options available for promoting business success and enhancing productivity. These companies do not need a network consultant who is motivated to resell a specific vendor's technology. Network support and product selling can lead to a situation where the recommended solution is designed around a predetermined product instead of the true requirements of a client. Progent avoids these conflicts of interest by selling only services instead of products. This allows Progent to align technical consulting with the best interests of clients.

What Makes Progent Unique from Other Service Firms?
Progent is a Microsoft Partner support company and Progent's staff size, range of technical expertise, refined remote support software, and understanding of corporate IT allow businesses to avoid the limitations associated with exclusive dependence on smaller consulting firms, individual freelance consultants, or limited internal IT help.

Progent adds value by providing:

  • Best Practices
    Progentís team of Microsoft and Cisco Premier Certified experts average more than a decade of hands-on industry background, at the front lines of IT support, executing a broad range of technical projects for a large mix of businesses. Each Progent support professional shares a refined set of personal best practices which are combined into company-wide best practices standards that Progent teaches its consulting staff. This means that you get not only expert technical skills, but also a support engineer with field-tested approaches for using technical knowledge to fix real-world IT problems rapidly.

  • Value Pricing
    Progent's pricing model is to charge for online support and on-site help by the minute. As a result, you are invoiced only for received support. Progent does not demand a higher rate for off-hours or emergency service, and within California or in areas where Progent provides on-premises support, Progent does not charge for travel time except for urgent support where on-site work is less than 4 hours. In addition, Progent imposes no service activation fee and asks no monthly commitment for support services delivered during normal working hours. Many service organizations impose substantial minimum payments or charge for every fifteen minutes or longer. Progent's fine granularity eliminates big bills for fast solutions so you will not be forced to permit less critical problems to stay unaddressed.

  • Complete Documentation of IT Services
    Progent has created a sophisticated support reporting system that stores and organizes detailed documentation for all billed services. Unlike some independent consultants or local support organizations who offer minimal documentation or details of services performed, each service provided by Progent is tracked by comprehensive documentation. Each Progent staff member has access to the service documentation transmitted by each consultant to each customer. The practice of detailing and archiving service records results in more efficient service and eliminates a slew of typical problems such as when a service client is effectively held captive to a consultant who refuses to let go of the keys to the kingdom.

  • Automated Server Monitoring with MS System Center Operations Manager
    Progent is one of the only consulting companies to provide 24x7 network monitoring services based on MS Operations Manager. Microsoft Operations Manager allows your network support to be anticipatory rather than reactive. By uncovering potential problems before they cause downtime, system monitoring can keep your information network from painful and costly service losses.
