Simple Sign-on and Pricing Structure
Progent's easy per-minute billing model requires no complex contracts, retainers or hidden fees. Many other companies have minimum billable time or other additional fees that drive up support costs. For remote support during normal working hours, you only pay for the time spent resolving your issue. If it only takes ten minutes to fix your issue, then you are only billed for ten minutes. For regularly scheduled onsite service work booked more than twenty-four hours in advance, you are billed only for the time when a Progent expert is actually onsite solving your problems. Just Progent's value priced per-minute rate. For urgent same-day on-site service calls, you may be charged for our expertís travel time, but never a higher emergency rate. Since Progent maintains a large pool of consultants located throughout the entire service territory, an available consultant is typically near to help.
