To contact Progent about urgent online assistance with Windows, macOS and OS X, or Linux computer systems, visit Progent's Urgent Remote Support, call 1-800-993-9400, or see Contact Progent. For organizations and startups in Rockville or throughout the state of Maryland, Progent's phone-based computer support specialists can provide effective and cost-effective system help the instant your business needs it.

Benefits of Progent's Network Help for Businesses in Rockville
Progent's online technical help services enable your Rockville organization to have the benefits of immediate, world-class network support without the cost of maintaining an in-house IT organization. Your information system will derive added business value by being more reliable, efficient, and protected. Benefits to your company include:

  • Convenient remote expansion of your on-site IT resources
    With most organizations in Rockville and throughout Maryland, local computer support providers, whether consisting of independent consultants or an internal maintenance staff, can solve the majority of network issues. However, serious problems can strike when local support personnel are overstretched or unavailable, and some trouble may involve IT products that is unfamiliar to your local support people. In these cases, Progent's on-call support professionals give you an easy, fast, and budget-friendly way to supplement your regular help and to pass on valuable information to improve your ability to handle future problems locally.

  • Reduced Reliance on Freelance Service Providers
    For network maintenance, smaller offices often rely on independent freelance service providers. Although freelance consultants have less internal costs than larger service organizations and can afford to charge marginally less, they are occasionally overbooked, making it difficult to respond quickly to crisis situations. If an independent service provider is occupied with another customer, ill, on vacation, or in training, the lack of reserve help may require your business to wait for assistance during an emergency. As your company grows, system downtime and trouble with vital applications are more costly. The budget you thought you were conserving on a freelancer can be eaten up quickly by lost productivity. Progent provides a dependable source of reserve service expertise to insure your network remains up and running.

  • Build a Scalable Foundation for Smooth Growth
    Organizations typically start with an information system created on a shoestring budget. Lacking a scalable infrastructure, slap-dash repairs can get piled on top of a weak foundation. When a company grows, reliability and scalability issues can impede the success of the organization. Such badly designed systems require proper assessment, intelligent long-term planning, and broad-based technical knowledge to evolve to a system infrastructure able to deliver the solid foundation to handle critical business demands and ease future expansion.

  • Work with Solution Providers Rather Than Product Resellers
    Smaller companies require advice and technical education to negotiate an increasingly complex array of product alternatives capable of accelerating business success and improving efficiency. These companies do not need a network consultant who is trying to sell a specific vendor's products. IT support and product sales can lead to a situation where the recommended solution is designed around a predetermined product instead of the true needs of a business. Progent avoids these conflicts of interest by selling just services rather than products. This allows Progent to match IT expertise with the best interests of clients.

How Is Progent Unique from Other Support Firms?
Progent is a Microsoft Certified Partner support company and Progent's number of employees, depth of technical background, refined remote support software, and familiarity with corporate IT allow businesses to escape the pitfalls associated with excessive reliance on smaller service firms, individual freelance consultants, or limited internal resources.

Progent adds value by providing:

  • Proven Methodology
    Progentís staff of Microsoft and Cisco Premier Certified experts average more than a decade of real-world industry background, in the trenches of network service, executing a broad range of IT tasks for a large array of customers. Each Progent support professional shares a refined collection of personal best practices which are combined into shared leading practices training that Progent instills in its consulting personnel. This guarantees that you get not only expert IT capability, but also a support engineer with proven approaches for using technical knowledge to solve actual IT problems efficiently.

  • Value Pricing
    Progent's pricing policy is to charge for phone support and on-site help per minute. Consequently, you are billed exclusively for delivered services. Progent does not impose a more expensive rate for off-hours or priority service, and inside California or in regions where Progent provides in-person service, Progent does not charge for travel except for urgent calls where on-site time is less than four hours. Also, Progent applies no service activation fee and requires no monthly commitment for support services delivered during normal working hours. Many service firms demand large minimum fees or charge for each fifteen minutes or longer. Progent's fine granularity avoids big invoices for quick repairs so you won't be forced to permit simple problems to stay unaddressed.

  • Full Documentation of IT Services
    Progent has created a comprehensive service reporting system that records and formats detailed documentation for all delivered support activities. Unlike many independent consultants or local support firms who provide scant documentation or specifics of services performed, each service delivered by Progent is accompanied by full documentation. Each Progent staff member has access to the service documentation sent by each staff member to every customer. The practice of documenting and organizing support activity results in more efficient support and avoids a variety of typical problems such as when a service customer is virtually held hostage to a consultant who refuses to let go of the keys to the kingdom.

  • Automated Server Monitoring with MS System Center Operations Manager
    Progent is one of the only support firms to provide 24x7 remote tracking services based on Microsoft Operations Manager. Microsoft Operations Manager causes your computer maintenance to be proactive rather than reactive. By revealing possible problems before they cause lost productivity, system monitoring can keep your IT network from painful and costly availability losses.
