Advantages of Progent's Network Help for Businesses in Schaumburg
Progent's online network troubleshooting services allow your Schaumburg company to enjoy the advantages of on-call, enterprise-grade IT support without the expense of maintaining an in-house IT organization. Your information system will acquire added strategic worth by being increasingly reliable, productive, and secure. Benefits to your business include:

  • Convenient remote expansion of your local support resources
    For most offices in Schaumburg or anywhere in Illinois, local network service resources, whether consisting of independent consultants or a full-time maintenance staff, can resolve the majority of network problems. However, serious problems sometimes strike when your regular resources are too busy or absent, and some problems may stem from technology that is unfamiliar to your onsite support people. In these situations, Progent's online support specialists give you a convenient, quick, and economical way to supplement your regular help and to convey valuable knowledge to improve your capability to handle downstream problems locally.

  • Less Reliance on Individual Service Providers
    For IT maintenance, smaller organizations often depend on individual freelance service providers. Although freelance service people carry less overhead than big consulting firms and can often charge marginally less, they are sometimes overextended, making it hard to respond rapidly to urgent situations. If an independent consultant is occupied with another client, sick, on a trip, or in training, the lack of backup help may force your company to go without assistance during an emergency. As your company expands, network unavailability and trouble with critical software become more expensive. The budget you thought you were conserving on an independent can be consumed quickly by reduced productivity. Progent provides an on-call source of reserve support experts to insure your network remains up and running.

  • Build a Solid Foundation for Smooth Expansion
    Companies typically start with an IT system implemented on a modest budget. Without a scalable framework, band-aid fixes can get thrown on top of an unstable foundation. When a company grows, stability and expandability problems can hinder the productivity of the organization. These badly designed systems need proper assessment, intelligent long-term planning, and extensive technical expertise to evolve to a system architecture that can offer the stable foundation to handle vital business requirements and facilitate future growth.

  • Interact with Problem Solvers Instead of Product Resellers
    Smaller companies need advice and technical education to navigate through an ever more complicated array of technology options capable of accelerating business success and improving productivity. These companies hardly need a computer consultant who is motivated to resell a certain vendor's products. Network support and product selling can result in a situation where the proposed solution is built around a profitable product rather than the true needs of a client. Progent eliminates these dilemmas by selling only services instead of products. This enables Progent to align technical expertise with the best interests of clients.

How Is Progent Different from Other Support Firms?
Progent is a Microsoft Certified Partner consulting company and Progent's number of employees, breadth of technical background, refined support software, and familiarity with enterprise networking enable businesses to avoid the limitations associated with excessive reliance on smaller consulting organizations, independent freelance consultants, or limited 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 real-world professional experience, in the trenches of network support, executing a wide variety of technical projects for a large array of clients.

This ensures that you get not just world-class technical skills, but also a support engineer with proven methods for applying computer knowledge to repair real-world IT problems efficiently.

  • Value Pricing
    Progent's pricing model is to bill for phone support and on-site visits by the minute. As a result, you are billed just for delivered support. Progent does not demand a more expensive rate for after-hours or urgent service, and inside California or in areas where Progent provides in-person support, Progent does not charge for travel except for urgent calls where on-site work is less than four hours. Also, Progent imposes no initialization charge and asks no monthly commitment for services delivered during regular working hours. Many support organizations impose substantial minimum payments or charge for each fifteen minutes or longer. Progent's one-minute granularity does away with large invoices for fast fixes so you will not be forced to permit simple problems to stay unaddressed.

  • Full Documentation of Delivered Services
    Progent has developed a sophisticated service reporting system that records and organizes complete documentation for all delivered services. Unlike some independent consultants or small support firms who offer minimal documentation or specifics of tasks done, each service delivered by Progent is tracked by full documentation. Every Progent consultant has access to the support documentation transmitted by every staff member to every client. The discipline of documenting and organizing support records results in more efficient service and eliminates a slew of common misfortunes such as when a service customer is virtually held captive to a consultant who wonít let go of the keys to the kingdom.

  • Remote Network Monitoring with MS System Center Operations Manager
    Progent is one of the few IT service firms to offer 24x7 network monitoring services based on MS Operations Manager.
