Advantages of Progent's IT Support for Businesses in Philadelphia
Progent's remote IT consulting services allow your Philadelphia company to enjoy the advantages of immediate, expert network support without the cost of maintaining an in-house IT organization. Your network will derive added strategic value by being more reliable, efficient, and secure. Advantages to your business include:

  • Seamless virtual extension of your on-site IT resources
    With most businesses in Philadelphia or anywhere in Pennsylvania, local network support resources, whether made up of independent consultants or an in-house IT staff, can resolve typical technical issues. On the other hand, IT crises sometimes strike when local resources are overstretched or unavailable, and some trouble may be associated with technology that is unfamiliar to your usual support technicians. In these situations, Progent's online service specialists offer an easy, quick, and affordable solution to supplement your regular help and to convey valuable knowledge to improve your capability to resolve future issues locally.

  • Less Dependence on Freelance Service Providers
    For network maintenance, smaller offices often depend on independent freelance consultants. Although independent service people carry less overhead than larger consulting organizations and can often charge lower rates, they are occasionally stretched too thin, making it difficult to respond quickly to crisis situations. If an independent service provider is busy with another client, ill, on a trip, or in class, the absence of reserve help may force your company to go without help during an IT crisis. As your network grows, system downtime and problems with critical software are more costly. The money you thought you were conserving on a freelancer can be consumed quickly by reduced productivity. Progent offers a reliable source of backup support expertise to insure your IT system stays available.

  • Create a Scalable Basis for Smooth Expansion
    Organizations typically begin with an IT system implemented on a modest budget. Without a scalable infrastructure, band-aid fixes often get piled on top of a weak foundation. As a company grows, stability and scalability issues can impede the productivity of the organization. Such poorly built environments require careful analysis, intelligent strategic planning, and wide IT expertise to evolve to a system infrastructure able to provide the stable foundation to meet vital business requirements and ease downstream growth.

  • Interact with Problem Solvers Instead of Technology Vendors
    Smaller offices require advice and technical education to negotiate an ever more complex array of product options capable of promoting business success and enhancing productivity. These companies do not need a network engineer who is trying to resell a certain vendor's products. Network support and product sales can lead to a situation where the recommended solution is designed around a predetermined technology rather than the genuine requirements of a client. Progent eliminates these dilemmas by selling only services rather than products. This enables Progent to match technical consulting with the real needs of clients.

What Makes Progent Different from Other Service Firms?
Progent is a Microsoft Certified Partner consulting company and Progent's staff size, breadth of technical expertise, fine tuned remote support tools, and familiarity with enterprise networking enable offices to escape the limitations of excessive reliance on smaller consulting firms, independent freelance consultants, or limited in-house IT help.

Progent stands out by offering:

  • Best Practices
    Progentís team of Microsoft and Cisco Premier experts average more than ten years of hands-on industry background, in the trenches of IT support, executing a broad variety of technical projects for a large mix of customers. Each Progent support professional shares a refined collection of personal best practices which are incorporated into shared leading practices standards that Progent teaches its consulting team. This guarantees that you get not just world-class IT capability, but also a consultant with proven methods for using technical knowledge to fix real-world network problems rapidly.

  • Value Pricing
    Progent's pricing model is to bill for online service and on-site help per minute. Consequently, you are billed exclusively for received services. Progent does not demand a higher rate for after-hours or urgent support, and inside California or in areas where Progent offers in-person service, Progent does not charge for travel time except for emergency support where on-site time is less than 4 hours. In addition, Progent applies no service activation charge and asks no retainer for services provided during regular business hours. Many service firms impose large minimum payments or charge for each fifteen minutes or longer. Progent's one-minute granularity eliminates large bills for quick solutions so you won't be forced to allow simple problems to stay unaddressed.

  • Complete Records of Delivered Services
    Progent has developed a sophisticated service reporting system that stores and organizes complete documentation for all delivered support activities. Unlike many freelance consultants or local support organizations who offer scant documentation or details of services done, each service delivered by Progent is accompanied by full documentation. Each Progent staff member has access to the service documentation transmitted by each consultant to every customer. The practice of documenting and archiving service records results in more efficient service and eliminates a variety of common problems such as when a service customer is virtually held hostage to a consultant who wonít let go of the keys to the kingdom.

  • Automated Network Monitoring with Microsoft Operations Manager
    Progent is one of the few IT service firms to offer 24x7 system tracking services based on MS Operations Manager. Microsoft System Center Operations Manager allows your computer maintenance to be anticipatory instead of reactive. By uncovering potential issues before they cause lost productivity, system monitoring can keep your IT network from stressful and costly availability disruptions.
