Advantages of Progent's IT Support for Companies in Pittsburgh
Progent's online technical help services enable your Pittsburgh company to experience the benefits of on-call, enterprise-class IT support without the expense of maintaining a full-time IT organization. Your information system will derive added strategic worth by becoming increasingly available, productive, and protected. Advantages to your company include:
- Convenient remote expansion of your local support resources
For most offices in Pittsburgh and throughout Pennsylvania, nearby computer service resources, whether consisting of outside consultants or an internal IT staff, can take care of typical technical issues. However, serious problems may occur when your regular resources are overstretched or absent, and some problems may involve technology that is unfamiliar to your local support personnel. In these situations, Progent's online service experts offer an easy, quick, and economical way to augment your regular resources and to pass on useful information to improve your ability to deal with future issues locally.
- Reduced Reliance on Freelance Consultants
For network maintenance, smaller companies often depend on individual freelance service providers. Although independent consultants have less overhead than larger service firms and can afford to charge marginally less, they are often stretched too thin, making it hard to respond rapidly to urgent situations. If a freelance consultant is occupied with another client, ill, on a trip, or in class, the absence of backup help may require your business to go without help during an emergency. As your network expands, network downtime and trouble with critical software are more expensive. The money you thought you were conserving on a freelancer can be eaten up quickly by lost productivity. Progent offers an on-call source of reserve service expertise to insure your network stays up and running.
- Create a Scalable Foundation for Smooth Growth
Organizations often begin with an information system implemented on a shoestring budget. Lacking a scalable infrastructure, slap-dash fixes can get piled on top of a weak foundation. As a network grows, reliability and scalability problems can impede the success of the business. Such poorly designed systems need proper analysis, intelligent strategic planning, and extensive technical expertise to upgrade to a network infrastructure that can provide the stable foundation to handle critical business requirements and simplify downstream growth.
- Interact with Solution Providers Instead of Product Vendors
Smaller organizations require guidance and technical education to navigate through an increasingly complicated array of technology options capable of promoting business success and improving productivity. They do not need a network consultant who is trying to earn a commission on a certain vendor's products. IT support and product selling can result in a situation where the recommended
solution is built around a profitable product instead of the true requirements of a business. Progent eliminates these dilemmas by offering just services rather than products. This enables Progent to align technical consulting with the best interests of customers.
How Is Progent Different from Other Service Organizations?
Progent is a Microsoft Partner support company and Progent's head count, range of technical experience, fine tuned support tools, and familiarity with corporate IT allow offices to avoid the limitations associated with excessive reliance on smaller consulting firms, individual freelance service providers, or limited internal IT help.
Progent stands out by providing:

Also, Progent applies no initialization fee and asks no retainer for services delivered during regular working hours.

Progent's one-minute granularity avoids big invoices for quick repairs so you will not be forced to allow simple problems to fester.
- Complete Records of IT Services
Progent has developed a comprehensive support reporting system that stores and formats detailed documentation for all delivered support activities.

Each Progent consultant has use of the support reports transmitted by every consultant to each customer. The discipline of documenting and organizing service records results in more efficient service and eliminates a slew of common problems such as when a support customer is effectively held hostage to a consultant who refuses to release vital service information.
- 24x7 Server Monitoring with MS Operations Manager
Progent is one of the only consulting companies to provide round-the-clock system tracking services powered by Microsoft System Center Operations Manager.
