Advantages of Progent's IT Support for Organizations in Spartanburg
Progent's online network troubleshooting services enable your Spartanburg business to have the advantages of timely, enterprise-class IT support without the expense of managing an in-house IT staff. Your network will acquire added strategic value by being increasingly reliable, efficient, and secure. Benefits to your business include:

  • Convenient remote extension of your on-site support resources
    With most organizations in Spartanburg or anywhere in South Carolina, nearby computer service resources, whether represented by independent consultants or a full-time maintenance staff, can solve the majority of technical problems. On the other hand, IT crises might occur when your regular support personnel are overstretched or unavailable, and some trouble may stem from IT products that is beyond the scope of your local support people. In these situations, Progent's online service professionals provide a convenient, quick, and budget-friendly way to supplement your local resources and to convey valuable knowledge to improve your ability to deal with future issues in-house.

  • Reduced Reliance on Freelance Consultants
    For network support, smaller organizations commonly rely on independent freelance consultants. Although independent consultants have less overhead than big consulting organizations and can often charge lower rates, they are occasionally overbooked, making it hard to respond quickly to urgent situations. If a freelance consultant is occupied with another client, ill, on a trip, or in class, the absence of backup personnel may force your business to wait for assistance during an IT crisis. As your company expands, network unavailability and trouble with critical applications are more expensive. The budget you thought you were conserving on an independent can be eaten up quickly by reduced productivity. Progent provides a reliable source of reserve service experts to insure your network is always available.

  • Create a Solid Foundation for Smooth Growth
    Organizations typically begin with an IT architecture implemented on a modest budget. Lacking a strong infrastructure, slap-dash repairs can get thrown on top of an unstable foundation. When a network grows, reliability and scalability problems can impede the productivity of the organization. Such poorly designed environments require careful analysis, smart strategic planning, and broad-based IT expertise to upgrade to a network infrastructure that can provide the stable foundation to handle current business demands and simplify downstream expansion.

  • Interact with Solution Providers Instead of Technology Sellers
    Smaller offices require advice and technical training to navigate through an ever more complex array of technology options capable of promoting business growth and enhancing efficiency. They do not need a network consultant who is trying to earn a commission on a certain vendor's products. IT consulting and product selling can lead to a scenario where the proposed solution is designed around a profitable technology rather than the genuine requirements of a client. Progent avoids these conflicts by offering just services instead of products. This allows Progent to align IT expertise with the real needs of customers.

How Is Progent Unique from Other Service Firms?
Progent is a Microsoft Certified Partner consulting firm and Progent's head count, depth of technical background, refined support software, and familiarity with corporate IT allow companies to avoid the pitfalls associated with excessive dependence on smaller consulting firms, independent freelance service providers, or over-stretched in-house IT help.

Progent stands out by providing:

  • Proven Methodology

This guarantees that you get not just expert IT help, but also a support engineer with proven methods for applying computer knowledge to resolve real-world IT problems efficiently.

  • Value Pricing
    Progent's pricing model is to charge for online service and on-site visits per minute. Consequently, you pay exclusively for received support. Progent does not impose a higher rate for after-hours or emergency support, and within California or in regions where Progent provides in-person service, Progent does not charge for travel time except for urgent support where on-site time is less than four hours. In addition, Progent applies no service activation fee and requires no monthly commitment for services delivered during normal business hours. Many service firms impose large minimum payments or charge for every quarter hour or longer. Progent's fine granularity avoids big invoices for quick fixes so you won't be tempted to permit minor problems to stay unaddressed.

  • Full Records of Delivered Services
    Progent has created a comprehensive support reporting system that stores and organizes detailed documentation for all delivered services. Unlike many independent consultants or local support firms who offer scant documentation or specifics of tasks done, every service provided by Progent is tracked by comprehensive documentation. Each Progent consultant has use of the service reports sent by each staff member to each client. The practice of documenting and archiving support activity allows more effective service and avoids a variety of typical misfortunes such as when a support client is effectively held captive to a consultant who refuses to release vital service information.

  • Remote Server Monitoring with MS System Center Operations Manager
    Progent is one of the few support companies to provide 24x7 remote monitoring services based on Microsoft Operations Manager. MS Operations Manager causes your network support to be anticipatory instead of reactive. By revealing potential issues before they result in lost productivity, network monitoring can keep your information network from stressful and expensive service losses.
