Advantages of Progent's Network Help for Businesses in Nashville
Progent's online network troubleshooting services allow your Nashville organization to experience the benefits of on-call, enterprise-grade network support without the cost of managing a full-time IT organization. Your information system will acquire greater business value by becoming more available, efficient, and protected. Benefits to your business include:

  • Convenient virtual expansion of your local IT resources
    With most organizations in Nashville or anywhere in Tennessee, local computer service providers, whether consisting of independent consultants or an internal maintenance staff, can handle the majority of technical issues. On the other hand, IT crises sometimes spring up when local resources are too busy or unavailable, and some trouble may be associated with technology that is beyond the scope of your onsite support people. In these cases, Progent's on-call service specialists provide an easy, quick, and budget-friendly solution to supplement your local resources and to convey useful knowledge to increase your ability to resolve future issues in-house.

  • Reduced Reliance on Individual Service Providers
    For network support, smaller companies often rely on individual freelance consultants. Although freelance service people have smaller overhead than big support organizations and can often charge marginally less, they are often stretched too thin, making it impossible to respond rapidly to urgent situations. If a freelance service provider is occupied with another client, sick, on a trip, or in training, the lack of fallback personnel may force your company to wait for help during an emergency. As your company expands, system downtime and problems with critical software are more costly. The budget you thought you were conserving on an independent can be consumed quickly by lost productivity. Progent provides a ready source of reserve support expertise to insure your network is always available.

  • Create a Solid Basis for Seamless Expansion
    Companies typically begin with an information architecture implemented on a shoestring budget. Without a robust infrastructure, band-aid fixes often get piled onto a shaky foundation. As a company grows, reliability and scalability issues can hinder the success of the business. Such badly designed environments need careful analysis, intelligent strategic planning, and wide IT knowledge to evolve to a system architecture that can deliver the stable foundation to handle critical business demands and facilitate downstream growth.

  • Work with Problem Solvers Instead of Technology Resellers
    Smaller organizations require guidance and technical education to negotiate an increasingly complex maze of technology options available for accelerating business success and improving efficiency. Businesses hardly need a network engineer who is attempting to sell a certain vendor's technology. Network support and product selling can lead to a situation where the recommended solution is designed around a predetermined technology instead of the genuine requirements of a client. Progent avoids these dilemmas by offering just services instead of products. This allows Progent to match IT expertise with the best interests of customers.

What Makes Progent Different from Other Service Firms?
Progent is a Microsoft Partner support company and Progent's head count, range of technical knowledge, refined remote support software, and familiarity with enterprise networking allow offices to escape the limitations associated with exclusive dependence on smaller consulting organizations, independent freelance service providers, or over-stretched in-house resources.

Progent adds value by providing:

  • Best Practices
    Progentís staff of Microsoft and Cisco Certified consultants average more than ten years of real-world industry background, at the forefront of IT service, performing a broad range of IT projects for an extensive array of customers. Every Progent consultant shares a refined collection of personal best practices which are combined into company-wide leading practices standards that Progent teaches its support staff. This guarantees that you get not just world-class IT capability, but also a consultant with proven methods for applying computer knowledge to solve real-world IT problems rapidly.

  • Value Pricing
    Progent's pricing policy is to bill for remote support and in-person help by the minute. Consequently, you pay only for received services. Progent does not impose a higher rate for after-hours or urgent service, and inside California or in areas where Progent offers on-premises support, Progent does not charge for travel time except for urgent support where on-site work is less than four hours. Also, Progent applies no startup fee and requires no retainer for services delivered during regular business hours. Many support organizations demand large minimum payments or charge for every fifteen minutes or longer. Progent's fine granularity eliminates big invoices for quick solutions so you won't be tempted to allow less critical problems to fester.

  • Full Records of IT Services
    Progent has created a sophisticated service reporting system that records and formats complete documentation for all delivered support activities. Unlike many freelance consultants or small service organizations who provide scant documentation or specifics of tasks performed, every service delivered by Progent is tracked by full documentation. Each Progent consultant has access to the service reports transmitted by every consultant to every customer. The practice of detailing and archiving service records allows more efficient support and avoids a variety of typical misfortunes such as when a service customer is effectively held hostage to a consultant who refuses to release the keys to the kingdom.

  • Remote Server Monitoring with MS Operations Manager
    Progent is one of the few support firms to offer round-the-clock remote tracking services powered by MS System Center Operations Manager. MS Operations Manager allows your computer support to be anticipatory rather than reactive. By anticipating potential problems before they cause lost productivity, system monitoring can keep your IT network from stressful and costly service disruptions.
