Advantages of Progent's IT Support for Companies in Phoenix
Progent's remote IT consulting services allow your Phoenix business to have the benefits of immediate, enterprise-level IT support without the expense of maintaining a full-time IT organization. Your network will acquire greater strategic value by being increasingly reliable, productive, and secure. Benefits to your company include:

  • Seamless virtual expansion of your on-site IT resources
    With most companies in Phoenix or anywhere in Arizona, local network support providers, whether consisting of independent consultants or a full-time IT staff, can resolve the majority of technical problems. However, IT crises may spring up when your regular resources are too busy or unavailable, and some trouble may stem from IT products that is beyond the scope of your onsite support people. In these cases, Progent's online support experts provide a convenient, fast, and economical way to supplement your local help and to convey useful knowledge to improve your capability to handle downstream issues in-house.

  • Less Dependence on Individual Consultants
    For network support, smaller companies commonly depend on individual freelance consultants. While freelance consultants have less overhead than larger consulting organizations and can afford to charge marginally less, they are sometimes stretched too thin, making it hard to respond quickly to crisis situations. If a freelance consultant is busy with another client, sick, on a trip, or in class, the lack of reserve personnel may require your business to wait for assistance during an IT crisis. As your network expands, network downtime and trouble with critical software become more expensive. The budget you thought you were saving on an independent can be eaten up fast by lost productivity. Progent offers a ready source of backup service expertise to insure your IT system stays up and running.

  • Create a Solid Basis for Smooth Growth
    Businesses typically begin with an IT system created on a shoestring budget. Without a strong infrastructure, slap-dash repairs often get thrown onto a weak foundation. As a network grows, stability and expandability problems can impede the productivity of the business. Such poorly designed systems need proper assessment, smart strategic planning, and extensive IT expertise to upgrade to a network architecture able to offer the solid foundation to meet current business requirements and ease downstream growth.

  • Work with Solution Providers Rather Than Product Resellers
    Smaller businesses need guidance and technical training to navigate through an increasingly complex maze of product alternatives available for promoting business growth and improving productivity. Businesses hardly need a computer consultant who is motivated to resell a specific vendor's technology. Network consulting and product selling can lead to a situation where the recommended solution is designed around a predetermined product rather than the genuine needs of a business. Progent avoids these conflicts of interest by selling only services rather than products. This enables Progent to align technical consulting with the best interests of customers.

How Is Progent Unique from Other Service Organizations?
Progent is a Microsoft Certified Partner support company and Progent's number of employees, range of technical knowledge, fine tuned support software, and understanding of enterprise networking allow companies to escape the pitfalls associated with excessive dependence on smaller service organizations, individual freelance consultants, or over-stretched internal resources.

Progent adds value by providing:

  • Proven Methodology

This ensures that you get not just expert technical skills, but also a consultant with field-tested approaches for using technical knowledge to repair actual network problems efficiently.

  • Value Pricing
    Progent's pricing policy is to charge for online support and on-site visits per minute. As a result, you are billed exclusively for delivered support. Progent does not impose a more expensive rate for after-hours or emergency service, and within California or in regions where Progent offers on-premises service, Progent does not charge for travel time except for emergency calls where on-site time is less than 4 hours. Also, Progent imposes no initialization charge and asks no retainer for support services delivered during regular business hours. Many support organizations impose substantial minimum fees or charge for every quarter hour or longer. Progent's fine granularity eliminates big invoices for quick repairs so you will not be tempted to allow simple problems to fester.

  • Full Records of IT Services
    Progent has developed a sophisticated support reporting system that records and formats detailed documentation for all delivered services. Unlike some independent consultants or local service firms who offer scant documentation or specifics of tasks done, each service provided by Progent is tracked by full documentation. Each Progent staff member has use of the support documentation sent by every consultant to every client. The discipline of documenting and archiving support records results in more efficient service and avoids a slew of common misfortunes such as when a support client is effectively held captive 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 only IT service firms to offer round-the-clock remote monitoring services based on MS System Center Operations Manager. MS Operations Manager allows your network maintenance to be proactive instead of reactive.
