How Your New Orleans Business Can Contact Progent's Remote Service Professionals
To contact Progent about urgent remote assistance with Windows, macOS and OS X, or Linux/UNIX networks, go to Progent's Urgent Remote Help, call 1-800-993-9400, or refer to Contact Progent.

Benefits of Progent's Network Help for Offices in New Orleans
Progent's online IT consulting services enable your New Orleans business to realize the advantages of timely, enterprise-grade network support without the expense of managing an in-house IT staff. Your information system will acquire added business worth by being more available, efficient, and protected. Advantages to your business include:

  • Convenient remote expansion of your on-site support resources
    With most businesses in New Orleans and throughout Louisiana, local computer support providers, whether made up of freelance consultants or an internal IT staff, can resolve typical network issues. On the other hand, serious problems can spring up when your regular resources are too busy or unavailable, and some problems may involve technology that is beyond the scope of your local support technicians. In these situations, Progent's on-call service specialists provide a convenient, quick, and affordable way to supplement your local resources and to transfer valuable knowledge to increase your capability to resolve future issues locally.

  • Reduced Reliance on Individual Service Providers
    For IT maintenance, smaller companies commonly depend on independent freelance service providers. While freelance consultants have less internal costs than larger service companies and can afford to charge marginally less, they are often overextended, making it difficult to respond quickly to crisis situations. If a freelance consultant is occupied with another customer, ill, on vacation, or in training, the lack of reserve personnel may force your company to go without assistance during an IT crisis. As your business expands, network unavailability and trouble with vital software are more expensive. The budget you thought you were conserving on an independent can be consumed quickly by lost productivity. Progent offers an on-call source of backup service expertise to insure your IT system is always available.

  • Build a Solid Basis for Smooth Growth
    Businesses typically start with an IT system created on a modest budget. Without a robust framework, band-aid fixes often get thrown onto an unstable foundation. As a company grows, stability and expandability problems can impede the productivity of the organization. These poorly built systems require proper assessment, smart strategic planning, and wide IT expertise to evolve to a network infrastructure that can offer the stable foundation to meet current business demands and simplify downstream growth.

  • Work with Solution Providers Rather Than Product Resellers
    Smaller businesses require advice and technical training to navigate through an ever more complex maze of product alternatives available for promoting business growth and enhancing productivity. They hardly need a network engineer who is attempting to earn a commission on a certain vendor's products. Network support and product selling can lead to a scenario where the proposed solution is designed around a profitable technology instead of the true requirements of a business. Progent avoids these dilemmas by selling just services instead of products. This enables Progent to align technical consulting with the best needs of clients.

How Is Progent Different from Other Support Organizations?
Progent is a Microsoft Partner support firm and Progent's staff size, range of technical background, refined support tools, and understanding of corporate IT allow companies to avoid the pitfalls of excessive dependence on smaller service organizations, individual freelance consultants, or over-stretched internal IT help.

Progent stands out by offering:

  • Best Practices
    Progentís team of Microsoft and Cisco Premier consultants average more than ten years of hands-on professional experience, at the forefront of network service, performing a wide variety of IT tasks for a large mix of customers.

This means that you get not just expert technical help, but also a consultant with proven methods for applying computer knowledge to repair real-world IT problems efficiently.

  • Value Pricing
    Progent's pricing policy is to charge for phone support and on-site visits per minute. Consequently, you are charged only for received support. Progent does not impose a higher rate for off-hours or priority service, and within California or in regions where Progent provides on-premises support, Progent does not charge for travel time except for emergency support where on-site time is less than 4 hours. Also, Progent imposes no initialization fee and asks no retainer for services delivered during regular business hours. Many support firms impose substantial minimum fees or charge for each quarter hour or longer. Progent's fine granularity does away with big invoices for quick fixes so you will not be forced to allow less critical problems to fester.

  • Complete Documentation of IT Services
    Progent has created a comprehensive service reporting system that records and organizes detailed documentation for all delivered support activities. Unlike many independent consultants or local service firms who offer scant documentation or details of services done, every service delivered by Progent is tracked by comprehensive documentation. Every Progent staff member has use of the support documentation sent by every staff member to every client. The practice of documenting and archiving support records allows more effective support and avoids a variety of typical misfortunes such as when a support client is virtually held hostage to a consultant who refuses to release the keys to the kingdom.

  • Automated Network Monitoring with Microsoft System Center Operations Manager
    Progent is one of the few consulting companies to provide round-the-clock system tracking services powered by Microsoft Operations Manager. MS System Center Operations Manager causes your computer support to be proactive instead of reactive. By anticipating potential issues before they result in downtime, system monitoring can save your information network from painful and costly service losses.
