Benefits of Progent's Network Help for Organizations in Salt Lake City
Progent's online network troubleshooting services enable your Salt Lake City business to experience the benefits of immediate, world-class network support without the cost of maintaining an in-house IT staff. Your information system will acquire added business value by being more reliable, productive, and secure. Advantages to your business include:

  • Seamless virtual expansion of your local support resources
    For most companies in Salt Lake City and throughout Utah, local computer service resources, whether consisting of freelance consultants or a full-time IT staff, can take care of typical technical problems. However, major troubles might occur when local resources are too busy or unavailable, and some trouble may involve technology that is beyond the scope of your local support people. In these cases, Progent's online service professionals provide an easy, fast, and economical solution to augment your local help and to pass on valuable knowledge to improve your capability to handle future issues in-house.

  • Reduced Dependence on Individual Service Providers
    For network maintenance, smaller companies commonly depend on individual freelance service providers. Although freelance service people have less internal costs than big consulting companies and can often charge marginally less, they are occasionally overbooked, making it impossible to respond quickly to crisis situations. If an independent consultant is busy with another client, sick, on vacation, or in training, the lack of fallback personnel may force your company to wait for help during an IT crisis. As your network grows, network unavailability and problems with vital software become more expensive. The money you thought you were saving on an independent can be consumed fast by reduced productivity. Progent provides a reliable source of backup support experts to make sure your IT system is always available.

  • Create a Solid Foundation for Seamless Expansion
    Companies typically start with an information architecture created on a shoestring budget. Without a proper framework, band-aid repairs often get piled on top of a weak foundation. As a network grows, stability and expandability problems can impede the productivity of the organization. These poorly designed environments need careful analysis, smart long-term planning, and extensive technical expertise to upgrade to a network infrastructure that can offer the stable foundation to handle critical business requirements and facilitate future expansion.

  • Work with Solution Providers Instead of Product Sellers
    Smaller companies need guidance and technical training to negotiate an ever more complicated array of product options capable of promoting business success and enhancing productivity. Businesses hardly need a computer consultant who is motivated to resell a specific vendor's technology. IT support and product selling can lead to a situation where the recommended solution is designed around a profitable technology instead of the genuine needs of a client. Progent eliminates these conflicts of interest by selling only services rather than products. This allows Progent to align IT expertise with the real 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 IT background, fine tuned support software, and familiarity with corporate IT allow businesses to escape the pitfalls associated with exclusive dependence on smaller consulting organizations, independent freelance consultants, or limited in-house resources.

Progent stands out by providing:

  • Proven Methodology
    Progentís staff of Microsoft and Cisco Certified consultants average more than ten years of real-world industry experience, in the trenches of IT support, performing a broad range of IT tasks for an extensive mix of customers. Every Progent support professional shares a proven set of personal best practices which are combined into shared best practices training that Progent teaches its support personnel. This ensures that you get not only expert technical capability, but also a support engineer with proven methods for applying technical knowledge to repair actual network problems efficiently.

  • Value Pricing
    Progent's pricing policy is to charge for online support and in-person visits per minute. Consequently, you are billed only for received support. Progent does not impose a more expensive rate for off-hours or urgent service, and inside California or in areas where Progent offers in-person service, Progent does not bill for travel time except for urgent calls where on-site work is less than four hours. Also, Progent applies no initialization fee and requires no retainer for support services delivered during regular business hours. Many support organizations impose substantial minimum payments or charge for each quarter hour or longer. Progent's one-minute granularity eliminates big bills for quick fixes so you won't be forced to permit minor problems to fester.

  • Complete Records of Delivered Services
    Progent has developed a comprehensive support reporting system that records and formats detailed documentation for all delivered support activities. Unlike many independent consultants or small support firms who provide minimal documentation or details of services performed, every service provided by Progent is tracked by full documentation. Each Progent consultant has use of the support documentation sent by each staff member to each customer. The discipline of documenting and organizing support records results in more effective support and eliminates a slew of common misfortunes such as when a service client is effectively held hostage to a consultant who refuses to release the keys to the kingdom.

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