Benefits of Progent's Network Help for Organizations in Spokane
Progent's online network troubleshooting services enable your Spokane organization to have the benefits of immediate, enterprise-class network support without the expense of managing a full-time IT staff. Your network will derive greater strategic worth by becoming more available, productive, and protected. Benefits to your business include:

  • Convenient virtual expansion of your on-site support resources
    With most companies in Spokane or anywhere in Washington, local computer service providers, whether made up of freelance consultants or a full-time maintenance staff, can deal with typical technical problems. On the other hand, major troubles can occur when your regular support personnel are too busy or absent, and some trouble may stem from technology that is beyond the scope of your local service personnel. In these instances, Progent's online support specialists provide an easy, fast, and budget-friendly way to augment your local resources and to convey useful information to improve your capability to deal with downstream issues locally.

  • Less Dependence on Individual Service Providers
    For network support, smaller offices commonly rely on independent freelance consultants. While independent service people carry smaller internal costs than larger support companies and can afford to charge lower rates, they are occasionally overbooked, making it impossible to respond quickly to urgent situations. If a freelance service provider is busy with another client, sick, on vacation, or in training, the lack of backup help may require your business to go without help during an IT crisis. As your business grows, network unavailability and trouble with vital software become more costly. The money you thought you were conserving on a freelancer can be consumed fast by reduced productivity. Progent provides a ready source of reserve support experts to make sure your network is always available.

  • Create a Scalable Foundation for Seamless Growth
    Businesses often start with an IT system implemented on a shoestring budget. Lacking a strong framework, band-aid fixes can get piled on top of a shaky foundation. When a network grows, reliability and scalability problems can impede the productivity of the organization. Such badly designed systems need careful analysis, smart strategic planning, and broad-based technical knowledge to upgrade to a network infrastructure that can deliver the solid foundation to meet vital business requirements and ease future growth.

  • Interact with Solution Providers Instead of Technology Sellers
    Smaller organizations require advice and technical education to negotiate an ever more complicated array of technology alternatives available for promoting business growth and enhancing productivity. Businesses hardly need a network consultant who is attempting to sell a certain vendor's technology. IT consulting and product sales can lead to a situation where the proposed solution is built around a predetermined technology rather than the genuine requirements of a business. Progent eliminates these conflicts by offering only services rather than products. This allows Progent to align technical consulting with the real needs of customers.

What Makes Progent Unique from Other Support Organizations?
Progent is a Microsoft Certified Partner consulting company and Progent's head count, depth of IT background, fine tuned support tools, and understanding of enterprise networking enable companies to escape the limitations associated with excessive dependence on smaller consulting organizations, independent freelance service providers, or limited internal IT help.

Progent adds value by providing:

  • Best Practices
    Progentís team of Microsoft and Cisco Premier experts average longer than a decade of hands-on industry background, at the front lines of IT support, executing a wide range of technical tasks for an extensive array of clients. Every Progent support professional shares a refined collection of personal best practices which are combined into company-wide best practices standards that Progent instills in its consulting staff. This ensures that you get not just world-class IT skills, but also a consultant with proven methods for using technical knowledge to fix real-world IT problems efficiently.

  • Value Pricing
    Progent's pricing policy is to bill for online support and on-site help by the minute. Consequently, you are charged just for received support. Progent does not impose a higher rate for off-hours or urgent service, and within California or in regions where Progent provides on-site support, Progent does not bill for travel except for urgent support where on-site work is less than four hours. In addition, Progent imposes no minimum fee and requires no retainer for support services provided during regular working hours. Many support firms impose substantial minimum fees or charge for every quarter hour or longer. Progent's one-minute granularity eliminates big bills for quick solutions so you will not be tempted to permit simple problems to stay unaddressed.

  • Complete Documentation of Delivered Services
    Progent has created a sophisticated support reporting system that records and organizes complete documentation for all billed services. Unlike many independent consultants or small support firms who provide scant documentation or specifics of tasks done, every service delivered by Progent is accompanied by full documentation. Every Progent staff member has access to the support reports sent by each consultant to each customer. The practice of detailing and organizing service activity results in more efficient support and avoids a slew of common problems such as when a support client is effectively held captive to a consultant who refuses to release vital service information.

  • 24x7 Server Monitoring with Microsoft Operations Manager
    Progent is one of the few consulting companies to offer 24x7 remote tracking services based on MS Operations Manager. MS System Center Operations Manager allows your network support to be anticipatory rather than reactive. By uncovering potential issues before they result in lost productivity, network monitoring can save your information network from painful and expensive service losses.
