- Affordable By-the-Minute Rates
Progent bills at competitive by-the-minute rates for the services of seasoned consulting professionals. Progent’s Microsoft and Cisco Certified consultants are fast, efficient, and experienced. By charging a competitive per-minute rate and resolving issues fast, Progent offers small and mid-size businesses the top return-on-investment available in the country for information system support.
- Streamlined Engagement Model without Retainers or Surcharges for Standard Services
Progent's streamlined by-the-minute engagement model requires no complex contracts, retainers, or hidden charges for services provided during normal working hours. Many support firms have minimum commitments or similar added fees that push support costs. For remote help, you are billed just for the actual minutes Progent uses working on your problem. If it only requires ten minutes to resolve your difficulty, then you are only charged for those few minutes. For scheduled on-location service calls reserved at least one day in advance, you pay just for the time when Progent's consultant is there on site solving your technical issues. No on-site surcharges, travel fees, or expenses. Simply our competitive per-minute rate. For urgent same-day on-site service calls, you could have to pay for our engineer's driving time, but never an increased expedited service rate. Since Progent maintains a large team of expert consultants located throughout the service territory and in major regions across the United States, a capable expert is normally nearby to help.

- Remote Support
Progent is a leader in delivering protected online support to business information systems worldwide. When performed properly, remote service provides significant productivity improvements and cost reductions by dealing with problems in a fraction of the time that would be required for an on-premises service call. Progent's remote support professionals know how to solve problems rapidly, and Progent's by-the-minute billing scheme for online support shields clients from paying for help that is never provided.
