Benefits of Progent's IT Support for Businesses in Stamford
Progent's remote technical help services enable your Stamford business to experience the advantages of timely, enterprise-class network support without the expense of maintaining a full-time IT staff. Your information system will derive greater business value by becoming increasingly available, productive, and secure. Advantages to your company include:

  • Convenient remote extension of your on-site IT resources
    For most businesses in Stamford or anywhere in Connecticut, nearby computer support providers, whether represented by independent consultants or an in-house maintenance staff, can handle typical network problems. However, serious problems might spring up when your regular resources are overstretched or absent, and some problems may be associated with technology that is unfamiliar to your usual support people. In these instances, Progent's on-call support experts give you an easy, fast, and budget-friendly way to augment your local help and to convey valuable information to improve your capability to handle future problems in-house.

  • Less Dependence on Freelance Consultants
    For IT maintenance, smaller offices commonly rely on individual freelance consultants. Although independent service people have smaller internal costs than big support firms 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 training, the absence of reserve help may force your business to wait for assistance during an emergency. As your network expands, system unavailability and problems with vital applications become more expensive. The money you thought you were saving on an independent can be consumed fast by reduced productivity. Progent provides a ready source of reserve service experts to make sure your IT system is always up and running.

  • Create a Scalable Foundation for Smooth Expansion
    Companies often begin with an IT system implemented on a modest budget. Lacking a scalable infrastructure, band-aid repairs often get piled onto a shaky foundation. When a network grows, stability and scalability problems can hinder the success of the organization. Such badly built environments need proper analysis, smart strategic planning, and broad-based IT knowledge to evolve to a system architecture able to deliver the solid foundation to meet vital business requirements and facilitate downstream growth.

  • Interact with Problem Solvers Rather Than Product Vendors
    Smaller organizations require advice and technical education to navigate through an ever more complicated maze of product options available for promoting business growth and improving efficiency. Businesses hardly need a computer consultant who is attempting to resell a certain vendor's products. IT consulting and product selling can lead to a situation where the proposed solution is built around a predetermined product rather than the true needs of a client. Progent eliminates these conflicts by selling just services instead of products. This enables Progent to match technical consulting with the real interests of customers.

How Is Progent Unique from Other Support Organizations?
Progent is a Microsoft Certified Partner support company and Progent's head count, range of IT knowledge, refined remote support tools, and familiarity with corporate IT allow businesses to avoid the pitfalls associated with exclusive dependence on smaller consulting organizations, individual freelance service providers, or limited internal resources.

Progent adds value by providing:

  • Proven Methodology
    Progentís staff of Microsoft and Cisco Certified experts average longer than a decade of real-world industry experience, at the forefront of IT support, performing a broad variety of technical projects for a large mix of customers.

This means that you get not only world-class IT skills, but also a consultant with field-tested methods for applying technical knowledge to resolve actual IT problems quickly.

  • Value Pricing
    Progent's pricing policy is to charge for online service and on-site visits by the minute. Consequently, you are charged only for received support. Progent does not impose a more expensive rate for off-hours or priority support, and inside California or in areas where Progent offers in-person support, Progent does not bill for travel except for emergency support where on-site work is less than four hours. In addition, Progent imposes no initialization fee and asks no retainer for services delivered during normal business hours. Many service firms demand large minimum payments or charge for each quarter hour or longer. Progent's fine granularity eliminates large bills for quick repairs so you will not be forced to permit minor problems to stay unaddressed.

  • Full Documentation of Delivered Services
    Progent has created a sophisticated service reporting system that stores and formats detailed documentation for all billed services. Unlike many independent consultants or local service firms who offer scant documentation or details of tasks done, each service provided by Progent is tracked by comprehensive documentation. Each Progent staff member has use of the service documentation transmitted by every consultant to each client. The practice of documenting and archiving service records results in more effective support and avoids a variety of typical misfortunes such as when a service client is virtually held hostage to a consultant who refuses to let go of the keys to the kingdom.

  • Automated Network Monitoring with Microsoft System Center Operations Manager
    Progent is one of the few IT service companies to offer 24x7 network monitoring services powered by MS System Center Operations Manager. MS System Center Operations Manager causes your computer support to be proactive instead of reactive. By revealing potential problems before they result in downtime, system monitoring can save your IT network from painful and costly availability disruptions.
