Advantages of Progent's IT Support for Organizations in San Antonio
Progent's remote IT consulting services allow your San Antonio company to experience the benefits of timely, enterprise-class network support without the expense of maintaining an in-house IT organization. Your information system will derive greater strategic worth by being increasingly available, efficient, and protected. Benefits to your business include:

  • Convenient remote expansion of your local IT resources
    With most offices in San Antonio and throughout Texas, nearby computer support resources, whether consisting of outside consultants or an in-house IT staff, can take care of the majority of technical problems. However, IT crises might strike when local support personnel are overstretched or absent, and some problems may involve technology that is beyond the scope of your onsite support technicians. In these instances, Progent's online service specialists provide a convenient, fast, and affordable way to augment your regular help and to transfer useful knowledge to improve your capability to deal with downstream problems locally.

  • Less Reliance on Individual Service Providers
    For network maintenance, smaller offices often depend on independent freelance service providers. While freelance service people have smaller overhead than larger support companies and can afford to charge lower rates, they are sometimes overbooked, making it hard to respond quickly to crisis situations. If a freelance service provider is occupied with another client, ill, on vacation, or in class, the lack of fallback personnel may force your company to go without help during an IT crisis. As your business grows, system downtime and problems with critical applications are more costly. The budget you thought you were conserving on a freelancer can be eaten up quickly by lost productivity. Progent offers an on-call source of backup support experts to insure your IT system is always up and running.

  • Build a Scalable Basis for Seamless Expansion
    Organizations often begin with an IT system created on a shoestring budget. Lacking a scalable framework, slap-dash repairs can get piled onto a shaky foundation. When a network grows, stability and scalability problems can impede the success of the business. These poorly designed systems need proper analysis, intelligent strategic planning, and extensive IT expertise to upgrade to a system infrastructure able to offer the stable foundation to meet current business requirements and facilitate downstream growth.

  • Work with Problem Solvers Rather Than Technology Vendors
    Smaller offices need guidance and technical training to negotiate an increasingly complex array of product alternatives capable of accelerating business success and enhancing productivity. These companies do not need a computer engineer who is attempting to resell a specific vendor's products. IT support and product selling can result in a scenario where the recommended solution is designed around a profitable product rather than the true needs of a client. Progent eliminates these conflicts by offering only services instead of products. This allows Progent to match IT consulting with the real needs of customers.

How Is Progent Unique from Other Service Organizations?
Progent is a Microsoft Certified Partner support company and Progent's head count, range of IT experience, fine tuned remote support software, and understanding of enterprise networking allow businesses to escape the pitfalls of excessive dependence on smaller consulting firms, independent freelance consultants, or limited internal IT help.

Progent stands out by providing:

  • Best Practices
    Progentís staff of Microsoft and Cisco Premier Certified consultants average more than a decade of real-world professional experience, in the trenches of network service, performing a broad variety of IT projects for a large array of customers. Every Progent consultant shares a proven set of personal best practices which are combined into shared best practices standards that Progent instills in its consulting personnel. This ensures that you get not only world-class IT skills, but also a support engineer with proven approaches for applying computer knowledge to solve actual network problems quickly.

  • Value Pricing
    Progent's pricing model is to charge for phone service and on-premises help per minute. Consequently, you are invoiced only for received services. Progent does not demand a higher rate for off-hours or priority support, and within California or in regions where Progent offers on-site support, Progent does not charge for travel time except for emergency support where on-site work is less than four hours. In addition, Progent imposes no service activation fee and asks no monthly commitment for services delivered during normal business hours. Many service organizations impose substantial minimum payments or charge for each quarter hour or longer. Progent's one-minute granularity eliminates large invoices for quick fixes so you will not be tempted to allow minor problems to fester.

  • Full Documentation of IT Services
    Progent has created a comprehensive service reporting system that stores and organizes detailed documentation for all delivered services. Unlike many independent consultants or local support organizations who offer minimal documentation or details of tasks done, each service delivered by Progent is tracked by comprehensive documentation. Each Progent consultant has access to the service documentation sent by every consultant to every client. The practice of documenting and organizing support records results in more efficient service and eliminates a variety of typical misfortunes such as when a support client is effectively held hostage to a consultant who refuses to release vital service information.

  • Automated Network Monitoring with Microsoft System Center Operations Manager
    Progent is one of the only support firms to offer 24x7 network tracking services based on Microsoft System Center Operations Manager. MS System Center Operations Manager allows your computer support to be proactive instead of reactive. By anticipating potential problems before they cause downtime, network monitoring can save your IT network from painful and expensive availability losses.
