Advantages of Progent's Network Help for Companies in Phoenix
Progent's online technical help services allow your Phoenix business to experience the advantages of immediate, world-class IT support without the expense of managing a full-time IT staff. Your information system will derive greater business value by being increasingly available, productive, and protected. Benefits to your company include:

  • Seamless remote expansion of your on-site support resources
    With most businesses in Phoenix or anywhere in Arizona, nearby computer support providers, whether consisting of outside consultants or an internal IT staff, can solve the majority of technical issues. However, IT crises can spring up when your regular support personnel are too busy or absent, and some trouble may stem from IT products that is beyond the scope of your onsite support people. In these instances, Progent's online service specialists give you a convenient, quick, and budget-friendly way to supplement your regular resources and to transfer valuable knowledge to increase your ability to resolve future problems in-house.

  • Less Dependence on Individual Service Providers
    For network maintenance, smaller companies commonly rely on individual freelance service providers. Although independent consultants carry smaller overhead than big service companies and can often charge lower rates, they are sometimes overbooked, making it hard 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 fallback help may force your business to go without help during an emergency. As your business expands, network unavailability and trouble with critical applications are more costly. The money you thought you were conserving on a freelancer can be consumed quickly by reduced productivity. Progent provides an on-call source of reserve service expertise to make sure your network remains up and running.

  • Build a Scalable Foundation for Seamless Growth
    Businesses typically start with an IT system implemented on a shoestring budget. Lacking a robust framework, slap-dash fixes can get piled onto an unstable foundation. When a network grows, stability and scalability problems can impede the productivity of the business. Such poorly built environments need proper analysis, smart long-term planning, and wide IT knowledge to upgrade to a network infrastructure able to provide the stable foundation to handle vital business demands and simplify downstream expansion.

  • Interact with Solution Providers Instead of Technology Vendors
    Smaller organizations need guidance and technical training to navigate through an increasingly complex maze of technology alternatives capable of accelerating business success and improving efficiency. Businesses do not need a computer engineer who is attempting to sell a specific vendor's technology. Network consulting and product sales can lead to a situation where the proposed solution is designed around a predetermined technology instead of the true requirements of a business. Progent eliminates these dilemmas by offering just services instead of products. This enables Progent to match technical consulting with the real needs of customers.

What Makes Progent Unique from Other Service Firms?
Progent is a Microsoft Partner support company and Progent's number of employees, breadth of technical knowledge, refined remote support software, and familiarity with enterprise networking allow companies to escape the pitfalls associated with excessive dependence on smaller consulting organizations, independent freelance service providers, or limited in-house IT help.

Progent adds value by providing:

  • Best Practices
    Progentís staff of Microsoft and Cisco Premier experts average longer than a decade of hands-on professional experience, at the forefront of network service, performing a wide range of technical tasks for an extensive array of businesses. Every Progent consultant shares a refined set of personal best practices which are incorporated into shared best practices training that Progent instills in its consulting team. This ensures that you get not just world-class IT skills, but also a consultant with field-tested approaches for applying computer knowledge to repair real-world network problems quickly.

  • Value Pricing
    Progent's pricing model is to bill for phone service and on-site visits per minute. Consequently, you pay just for delivered support. Progent does not impose a more expensive rate for off-hours or urgent support, and inside California or in regions where Progent offers on-premises support, Progent does not bill for travel except for emergency calls where on-site time is less than 4 hours. Also, Progent applies no minimum fee and asks no retainer for support services provided during regular working hours. Many service firms demand substantial minimum fees or charge for each fifteen minutes or longer. Progent's one-minute granularity does away with large invoices for quick solutions so you won't be tempted to permit less critical problems to stay unaddressed.

  • Complete Records of Delivered Services
    Progent has developed a sophisticated service reporting system that records and formats complete documentation for all billed support activities. Unlike some freelance consultants or small service firms who provide minimal documentation or details of services performed, every service delivered by Progent is accompanied by comprehensive documentation. Each Progent consultant has use of the service reports sent by each staff member to every client. The discipline of documenting and organizing service records allows more effective service and eliminates a slew of common problems such as when a support client is effectively held captive to a consultant who wonít let go of vital service information.

  • Automated Server Monitoring with MS Operations Manager
    Progent is one of the only consulting companies to offer 24x7 system monitoring services based on Microsoft System Center Operations Manager. MS Operations Manager causes your computer support to be anticipatory instead of reactive. By uncovering possible problems before they cause lost productivity, system monitoring can save your IT network from stressful and expensive availability disruptions.
