Benefits of Progent's IT Support for Offices in Montgomery
Progent's remote IT consulting services enable your Montgomery business to have the advantages of on-call, enterprise-grade IT support without the cost of managing an in-house IT staff. Your network will acquire added business value by being more reliable, productive, and secure. Advantages to your business include:

  • Convenient virtual extension of your on-site IT resources
    With most offices in Montgomery and throughout Alabama, local network support resources, whether represented by outside consultants or an in-house IT staff, can solve the majority of network problems. On the other hand, serious problems sometimes spring up when your regular support personnel are too busy or absent, and some trouble may involve IT products that is beyond the scope of your local support technicians. In these instances, Progent's on-call support experts provide an easy, quick, and budget-friendly way to augment your regular resources and to convey useful knowledge to increase your ability to deal with downstream issues in-house.

  • Less Dependence on Freelance Service Providers
    For IT maintenance, smaller offices often rely on individual freelance consultants. Although freelance consultants carry less overhead than larger support companies and can often charge marginally less, they are occasionally overbooked, making it hard to respond quickly to crisis situations. If a freelance service provider is busy with another customer, ill, on vacation, or in class, the absence of reserve personnel may force your business to go without help during an emergency. As your company expands, system unavailability and problems with critical software are more expensive. The money you thought you were saving on a freelancer can be eaten up fast by lost productivity. Progent offers an on-call source of backup support expertise to insure your IT system remains up and running.

  • Build a Solid Basis for Smooth Growth
    Businesses typically begin with an information system created on a shoestring budget. Without a strong framework, slap-dash fixes can get thrown onto a shaky foundation. As a company grows, reliability and expandability issues can hinder the productivity of the organization. Such poorly built environments need careful assessment, intelligent strategic planning, and broad-based IT expertise to upgrade to a network infrastructure that can deliver the stable foundation to handle vital business demands and facilitate downstream growth.

  • Interact with Solution Providers Instead of Technology Sellers
    Smaller businesses need guidance and technical education to negotiate an ever more complex maze of product alternatives available for promoting business growth and enhancing productivity. They do not need a network consultant who is attempting to earn a commission on a certain vendor's products. IT support and product selling can result in a situation where the recommended solution is designed around a profitable product instead of the true requirements of a client. Progent eliminates these conflicts by offering just services rather than products. This allows Progent to align technical consulting with the best interests of clients.

What Makes Progent Different from Other Service Organizations?
Progent is a Microsoft Partner support firm and Progent's staff size, depth of technical background, refined remote support software, and familiarity with corporate IT allow offices to avoid the pitfalls associated with exclusive dependence on smaller consulting organizations, independent freelance service providers, or over-stretched in-house IT help.

Progent stands out by offering:

  • Proven Methodology
    Progentís team of Microsoft and Cisco Premier Certified consultants average longer than a decade of hands-on professional experience, at the forefront of network service, executing a wide variety of technical projects for a large array of clients.

This ensures that you get not just world-class IT help, but also a support engineer with field-tested approaches for using technical knowledge to fix actual network problems efficiently.

  • Value Pricing
    Progent's pricing model is to charge for remote support and on-site help per minute. Consequently, you are billed just for delivered services.

In addition, Progent applies no startup charge and requires no monthly commitment for support services delivered during normal working hours.

Progent's one-minute granularity avoids big bills for fast repairs so you won't be tempted to permit minor problems to stay unaddressed.

  • Complete Records of Delivered Services
    Progent has created a sophisticated support reporting system that records and organizes complete documentation for all delivered support activities. Unlike many freelance consultants or local support organizations who provide minimal documentation or details of services performed, every service provided by Progent is tracked by full documentation. Every Progent staff member has use of the support reports transmitted by every staff member to every client. The practice of documenting and archiving service activity results in more effective support and eliminates a variety of common misfortunes such as when a support customer is virtually held hostage to a consultant who refuses to release the keys to the kingdom.

  • Automated Network Monitoring with MS System Center Operations Manager
    Progent is one of the few IT service companies to offer round-the-clock remote monitoring services powered by Microsoft System Center Operations Manager. Microsoft Operations Manager allows your computer maintenance to be anticipatory rather than reactive. By revealing potential issues before they result in lost productivity, system monitoring can keep your information network from painful and costly service disruptions.
