- Affordable By-the-Minute Rates
Progent bills at affordable per minute rates for the services of seasoned consulting experts. Progentís Microsoft Premier engineers are fast, effective, and experienced. By billing at a competitive by-the-minute rate and resolving issues fast, Progent offers small and mid-size companies the top return-on-investment you can find in the country for IT support.
- Streamlined Engagement Model without Retainers or Surcharges for Standard Services
Progent's streamlined by-the-minute engagement model demands no complex service agreements, minimum commitments, or hidden charges for support services delivered during regular business hours. Many service firms have minimum charges or similar added fees that drive up service costs. For online support, you pay just for the actual minutes Progent spends working on your problem. If it only takes ten minutes to resolve your difficulty, then you only pay for those few minutes. For scheduled on-location service work booked more than 24 hours in advance, you pay just for the time when our consultant is actually on location solving your problems. No on-location charges, driving time, or expenses. Just Progent's competitive per-minute rate. For emergency same-day in-person service calls, you could be required to pay for the Progent consultant's travel time, but never a higher expedited service rate. Because Progent maintains an extensive pool of expert engineers located across the area and in key regions throughout the United States, an available expert is usually close by to help.

- Remote Support

When practiced properly, remote service offers significant productivity improvements and cost reductions by solving problems in a small percentage of the time that would be needed for an on-premises support call. Progent's online support professionals know how to solve problems quickly, and Progent's per minuite billing model for remote help shields customers from having to pay for help that is never delivered.
