Benefits of Progent's IT Support for Companies in Norfolk
Progent's online network troubleshooting services allow your Norfolk organization to experience the benefits of timely, enterprise-class IT support without the cost of managing an in-house IT organization. Your network will acquire greater business worth by becoming increasingly reliable, efficient, and secure. Benefits to your business include:

  • Convenient virtual expansion of your on-site IT resources
    For most organizations in Norfolk and throughout Virginia, local network support providers, whether represented by outside consultants or an in-house maintenance staff, can deal with the majority of network problems. On the other hand, IT crises may occur when your regular support personnel are overstretched or unavailable, and some trouble may be associated with technology that is beyond the scope of your onsite support technicians. In these cases, Progent's on-call support specialists provide a convenient, quick, and economical solution to supplement your local help and to convey valuable knowledge to increase your capability to handle downstream problems in-house.

  • Less Dependence on Individual Consultants
    For IT maintenance, smaller offices commonly rely on individual freelance service providers. While independent service people carry less internal costs than larger consulting firms and can afford to charge marginally less, they are occasionally stretched too thin, making it impossible to respond quickly to crisis situations. If an independent service provider is busy with another client, ill, on vacation, or in training, the lack of backup personnel may force your company to wait for help during an emergency. As your network expands, network downtime and problems with critical software are more expensive. The money you thought you were conserving on an independent can be consumed fast by lost productivity. Progent offers a dependable source of reserve service experts to insure your IT system remains up and running.

  • Create a Scalable Foundation for Smooth Growth
    Companies typically begin with an information architecture created on a modest budget. Lacking a robust framework, slap-dash repairs can get thrown on top of an unstable foundation. As a company grows, stability and scalability problems can hinder the productivity of the business. These poorly built systems require careful assessment, intelligent long-term planning, and wide technical expertise to upgrade to a network architecture able to offer the stable foundation to meet current business requirements and ease downstream expansion.

  • Work with Problem Solvers Instead of Product Resellers
    Smaller businesses need advice and technical education to navigate through an increasingly complicated array of technology options available for promoting business success and enhancing productivity. They hardly need a network consultant who is trying to sell a certain vendor's technology. IT consulting and product selling can result in a situation where the recommended solution is designed around a predetermined technology rather than the true requirements of a business. Progent avoids these conflicts by offering just services instead of products. This enables Progent to match IT expertise with the real interests of customers.

How Is Progent Unique from Other Support Organizations?
Progent is a Microsoft Partner support firm and Progent's head count, breadth of IT knowledge, refined remote support software, and familiarity with enterprise networking enable offices to avoid the pitfalls associated with excessive dependence on smaller service organizations, independent freelance consultants, or limited in-house resources.

Progent adds value by providing:

  • Proven Methodology
    Progentís staff of Microsoft and Cisco Certified experts average more than a decade of hands-on professional experience, in the trenches of IT support, performing a broad range of technical tasks for an extensive array of clients. Every Progent consultant shares a refined set of personal best practices which are incorporated into company-wide leading practices standards that Progent instills in its consulting team. This guarantees that you get not only expert technical skills, but also a support engineer with proven methods for applying computer knowledge to repair real-world IT problems rapidly.

  • Value Pricing
    Progent's pricing model is to bill for online service and in-person visits by the minute. As a result, you are charged just 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 in-person support, Progent does not charge for travel time except for emergency calls where on-site time is less than 4 hours. In addition, Progent imposes no initialization charge and requires no retainer for support services provided during regular working hours. Many service firms demand large minimum payments or charge for every quarter hour or longer. Progent's one-minute granularity eliminates large invoices for quick fixes so you will not be tempted to permit simple problems to fester.

  • Full Documentation of IT Services
    Progent has created a sophisticated support reporting system that stores and organizes detailed documentation for all delivered services. Unlike some independent consultants or local service firms who offer minimal documentation or specifics of services performed, every service delivered by Progent is tracked by full documentation. Each Progent consultant has access to the service reports sent by each staff member to each customer. The discipline of documenting and archiving service records results in more effective support and avoids a slew of common misfortunes such as when a support client is effectively held hostage to a consultant who refuses to let go of the keys to the kingdom.

  • Automated Network Monitoring with MS Operations Manager
    Progent is one of the few IT service companies to offer 24x7 remote tracking services powered by Microsoft System Center Operations Manager. Microsoft Operations Manager allows your network support to be proactive instead of reactive. By revealing possible issues before they result in lost productivity, network monitoring can save your information network from painful and expensive service disruptions.
