Benefits of Progent's Network Help for Companies in Toledo
Progent's remote technical help services enable your Toledo business to enjoy the benefits of on-call, enterprise-grade network support without the cost of maintaining a full-time IT organization. Your information system will acquire added business value by becoming more reliable, efficient, and protected. Benefits to your company include:

  • Seamless remote extension of your on-site IT resources
    For most organizations in Toledo and throughout Ohio, local computer support resources, whether made up of freelance consultants or an in-house maintenance staff, can solve the majority of network problems. On the other hand, serious problems might strike when local resources are overstretched or absent, and some trouble may involve technology that is unfamiliar to your local service personnel. In these instances, Progent's online support professionals give you a convenient, quick, and affordable way to supplement your local resources and to pass on useful knowledge to increase your ability to deal with future issues in-house.

  • Reduced Dependence on Individual Service Providers
    For IT support, smaller organizations often depend on independent freelance consultants. While independent consultants have smaller overhead than big support organizations and can often charge marginally less, they are occasionally stretched too thin, making it hard to respond rapidly to crisis situations. If a freelance service provider is busy with another customer, ill, on vacation, or in training, the absence of reserve personnel may force your company to wait for assistance during an IT crisis. As your company grows, network unavailability and problems with vital software become more costly. The budget you thought you were saving on a freelancer can be eaten up quickly by reduced productivity. Progent provides a dependable source of reserve service experts to make sure your IT system remains available.

  • Build a Scalable Basis for Seamless Expansion
    Businesses typically start with an information architecture implemented on a modest budget. Lacking a scalable infrastructure, slap-dash fixes can get thrown onto a weak foundation. As a network grows, stability and expandability problems can hinder the productivity of the business. These badly designed environments require proper assessment, smart long-term planning, and broad-based IT knowledge to evolve to a system architecture able to offer the solid foundation to handle current business demands and facilitate future growth.

  • Work with Problem Solvers Rather Than Technology Sellers
    Smaller businesses need guidance and technical training to navigate through an increasingly complex array of product options available for promoting business growth and improving productivity. These companies do not need a computer engineer who is attempting to sell a specific vendor's products. IT consulting and product sales can result in a situation where the recommended solution is designed around a profitable technology rather than the true needs of a business. Progent avoids these dilemmas by offering only services rather than products. This enables Progent to match IT consulting with the real needs of customers.

What Makes Progent Different from Other Support Firms?
Progent is a Microsoft Certified Partner consulting company and Progent's number of employees, breadth of IT expertise, fine tuned remote support software, and familiarity with enterprise networking enable companies to escape the pitfalls of exclusive reliance on smaller service organizations, independent freelance consultants, or limited internal IT help.

Progent stands out by providing:

  • Best Practices
    Progentís staff of Microsoft and Cisco Premier consultants average longer than ten years of real-world industry background, in the trenches of network service, performing a wide variety of technical projects for a large array of businesses.

This means that you get not just expert technical help, but also a consultant with field-tested methods for using computer knowledge to fix real-world IT problems quickly.

  • Value Pricing
    Progent's pricing policy is to bill for online service and on-premises help per minute. Consequently, you are billed exclusively for received support. Progent does not demand a higher rate for after-hours or priority service, and within California or in areas where Progent offers in-person service, Progent does not bill for travel time except for emergency calls where on-site work is less than four hours. Also, Progent applies no startup charge and asks no monthly commitment for services delivered during normal business hours. Many support organizations impose substantial minimum fees or charge for every quarter hour or longer. Progent's one-minute granularity eliminates big invoices for quick fixes so you will not be tempted to permit minor problems to stay unaddressed.

  • Information Transfer
    Progent practices knowledge transfer from Progent's consultants to clients. By teaching customers to resolve problems that are within their comfort zone, Progent can focus on providing high-value services where Progent has little competition. Companies who work with trusted freelance consultants or who employ in-house IT staffs benefit when Progent passes on knowledge about new technology and proven processes to make their networks more reliable, protected, and efficient.

  • 24x7 Server Monitoring with MS Operations Manager
    Progent is one of the few consulting firms to provide 24x7 system tracking services based on MS System Center Operations Manager.
