Benefits of Progent's IT Support for Businesses in New York City
Progent's remote network troubleshooting services allow your New York City business to realize the advantages of immediate, enterprise-class IT support without the expense of managing an in-house IT organization. Your network will acquire greater business value by becoming more available, productive, and secure. Advantages to your company include:

  • Seamless remote expansion of your on-site IT resources
    For most offices in New York City or anywhere in New York, local network support resources, whether represented by outside consultants or an in-house maintenance staff, can solve typical technical problems. However, major troubles can strike when your regular support personnel are overstretched or unavailable, and some trouble may be associated with IT products that is unfamiliar to your onsite support technicians. In these instances, Progent's on-call support experts give you an easy, quick, and affordable way to supplement your local resources and to transfer useful information to increase your capability to deal with downstream issues in-house.

  • Reduced Dependence on Freelance Service Providers
    For network support, smaller organizations commonly rely on individual freelance consultants. Although independent consultants have less overhead than big consulting companies and can afford to charge lower rates, they are occasionally overextended, making it impossible to respond quickly to crisis situations. If an independent consultant is busy with another customer, ill, on vacation, or in class, the absence of fallback personnel may require your business to go without assistance during an emergency. As your company grows, network downtime and problems with critical applications become more costly. The budget you thought you were conserving on an independent can be consumed quickly by reduced productivity. Progent offers a ready source of reserve support experts to make sure your network remains available.

  • Create a Solid Basis for Seamless Expansion
    Organizations typically start with an information architecture implemented on a shoestring budget. Without a robust infrastructure, band-aid repairs can get thrown on top of a shaky foundation. When a network grows, reliability and expandability issues can hinder the success of the organization. These poorly designed systems need careful assessment, intelligent long-term planning, and extensive IT expertise to upgrade to a network architecture able to offer the stable foundation to handle vital business demands and facilitate future growth.

  • Interact with Solution Providers Rather Than Technology Sellers
    Smaller companies require advice and technical education to negotiate an ever more complex maze of product alternatives capable of promoting business growth and improving efficiency. These companies hardly need a computer engineer who is attempting to resell a specific vendor's technology. Network support and product selling can lead to a scenario where the proposed solution is built around a predetermined product rather than the genuine requirements of a client. Progent eliminates these conflicts by offering only services instead of products. This allows Progent to align IT consulting with the real interests of clients.

What Makes Progent Different from Other Support Organizations?
Progent is a Microsoft Partner support firm and Progent's head count, range of IT experience, refined support tools, and understanding of enterprise networking allow offices to escape the limitations of excessive dependence on smaller consulting organizations, independent freelance service providers, or limited internal IT help.

Progent adds value by providing:

  • Best Practices
    Progentís staff of Microsoft and Cisco Premier consultants average longer than a decade of hands-on professional background, in the trenches of network service, performing a wide variety of technical projects for an extensive array of customers. Every Progent consultant shares a refined collection of personal best practices which are incorporated into company-wide best practices training that Progent instills in its support personnel. This means that you get not just world-class technical skills, but also a consultant with field-tested methods for applying computer knowledge to fix real-world IT problems efficiently.

  • Value Pricing
    Progent's pricing model is to charge for remote support and on-premises visits per minute. Consequently, you are invoiced exclusively for delivered services. Progent does not impose a higher rate for after-hours or priority service, and inside California or in regions where Progent offers on-site support, Progent does not charge for travel time except for emergency support where on-site work is less than four hours. Also, Progent imposes no minimum charge and requires no retainer for services delivered during normal business hours. Many service organizations impose substantial minimum fees or charge for each fifteen minutes or longer. Progent's one-minute granularity avoids large bills for fast repairs so you will not be tempted to allow less critical problems to fester.

  • Complete Documentation of IT Services
    Progent has developed a sophisticated service reporting system that records and organizes complete documentation for all billed services. Unlike many independent consultants or local support firms who offer minimal documentation or specifics of tasks done, every service provided by Progent is accompanied by comprehensive documentation. Every Progent staff member has use of the service documentation transmitted by each staff member to every customer. The discipline of detailing and archiving service activity allows more effective support and eliminates a slew of common problems such as when a service customer is virtually held captive to a consultant who refuses to release vital service information.

  • 24x7 Network Monitoring with Microsoft Operations Manager
    Progent is one of the few support firms to provide 24x7 network monitoring services based on MS System Center Operations Manager. Microsoft Operations Manager causes your network support to be anticipatory rather than reactive. By revealing potential issues before they result in lost productivity, system monitoring can keep your information network from stressful and expensive availability losses.
