Advantages of Progent's IT Support for Companies in Portland
Progent's online IT consulting services allow your Portland business to realize the benefits of immediate, expert network support without the cost of maintaining an in-house IT staff. Your information system will derive added business worth by becoming more available, productive, and secure. Advantages to your business include:

  • Seamless virtual extension of your local IT resources
    With most businesses in Portland or anywhere in Oregon, local network support providers, whether represented by independent consultants or an internal IT staff, can deal with the majority of network problems. However, major troubles can occur when local support personnel are overstretched or absent, and some problems may be associated with technology that is beyond the scope of your local support technicians. In these situations, Progent's on-call service professionals offer a convenient, fast, and economical solution to augment your local resources and to pass on valuable information to improve your capability to deal with downstream issues locally.

  • Reduced Dependence on Freelance Service Providers
    For IT support, smaller offices commonly depend on individual freelance consultants. Although independent service people carry less internal costs than larger service organizations and can afford to charge lower rates, they are occasionally overbooked, making it impossible to respond rapidly to crisis situations. If an independent consultant is occupied with another client, sick, on vacation, or in class, the lack of fallback personnel may require your business to wait for assistance during an emergency. As your network expands, network downtime and trouble with critical software are more expensive. The budget you thought you were saving on a freelancer can be eaten up fast by reduced productivity. Progent provides an on-call source of backup service experts to insure your network remains available.

  • Build a Solid Basis for Smooth Growth
    Companies typically begin with an information system implemented on a modest budget. Lacking a scalable framework, slap-dash fixes often get piled on top of an unstable foundation. When a network grows, stability and expandability problems can impede the success of the organization. Such badly built systems need careful analysis, smart strategic planning, and extensive IT expertise to evolve to a network architecture able to offer the solid foundation to handle critical business requirements and simplify future expansion.

  • Work with Problem Solvers Rather Than Technology Vendors
    Smaller organizations require advice and technical education to navigate through an increasingly complicated maze of product alternatives capable of accelerating business success and enhancing productivity. Businesses do not need a network engineer who is trying to sell a certain vendor's technology. IT support and product selling can lead to a situation where the proposed solution is built around a predetermined product rather than the true needs of a client. Progent avoids these conflicts by selling just services instead of products. This enables Progent to match IT consulting with the best needs of customers.

What Makes Progent Different from Other Support Organizations?
Progent is a Microsoft Partner consulting company and Progent's staff size, breadth of IT knowledge, fine tuned remote support software, and familiarity with corporate IT allow offices to avoid the limitations associated with excessive dependence on smaller consulting organizations, independent freelance consultants, or over-stretched in-house resources.

Progent stands out by providing:

  • Best Practices
    Progentís team of Microsoft and Cisco Premier Certified consultants average longer than a decade of hands-on professional experience, at the forefront of network support, executing a broad range of technical tasks for a large mix of businesses. Each Progent support professional shares a refined set of personal best practices which are incorporated into company-wide leading practices training that Progent instills in its consulting team. This guarantees that you get not only expert technical capability, but also a consultant with proven approaches for applying technical knowledge to resolve actual network problems rapidly.

  • Value Pricing
    Progent's pricing model is to charge for online service and on-site help per minute. Consequently, you are invoiced exclusively for received support. Progent does not demand a higher rate for after-hours or priority service, and within California or in areas where Progent provides on-site service, Progent does not charge for travel except for emergency calls where on-site time is less than four hours. In addition, Progent applies no startup charge and asks no monthly commitment for services delivered during normal working hours. Many support firms demand large minimum payments or charge for every fifteen minutes or longer. Progent's one-minute granularity does away with big bills for quick repairs so you will not be tempted to allow simple problems to fester.

  • Knowledge Transfer
    Progent practices knowledge transfer from Progent's consultants to clients. By teaching clients to handle problems that are within their comfort zone, Progent can focus on providing high-value services where Progent has little competition. Businesses who utilize trusted freelance consultants or who maintain internal IT staffs benefit when Progent passes on information about new technology and tested processes to make their IT environments more reliable, secure, and productive.

  • 24x7 Network Monitoring with MS System Center Operations Manager
    Progent is one of the few consulting companies to offer 24x7 network tracking services based on Microsoft System Center Operations Manager.
