Advantages of Progent's IT Support for Businesses in Toledo
Progent's online network troubleshooting services enable your Toledo organization to realize the advantages of timely, enterprise-level network support without the cost of maintaining a full-time IT staff. Your network will acquire added business value by being more reliable, productive, and protected. Advantages to your company include:

  • Convenient remote expansion of your local support resources
    For most companies in Toledo or anywhere in Ohio, local network service resources, whether consisting of independent consultants or an in-house maintenance staff, can handle the majority of technical problems. However, major troubles may occur when local resources are too busy or unavailable, and some problems may be associated with technology that is beyond the scope of your onsite support technicians. In these situations, Progent's online support professionals offer an easy, fast, and budget-friendly solution to supplement your regular resources and to transfer useful knowledge to improve your ability to resolve downstream problems locally.

  • Less Reliance on Individual Consultants
    For IT support, smaller companies often rely on individual freelance consultants. Although independent consultants have less overhead than big support firms and can afford to charge lower rates, they are sometimes overbooked, making it difficult to respond quickly to crisis situations. If a freelance consultant is occupied with another client, ill, on vacation, or in class, the absence of fallback help may require your business to wait for assistance during an IT crisis. As your company expands, system downtime and problems with vital software become more costly. The money you thought you were conserving on a freelancer can be eaten up fast by reduced productivity. Progent provides an on-call source of reserve service expertise to make sure your network stays available.

  • Create a Solid Foundation for Smooth Growth
    Businesses often begin with an IT architecture implemented on a modest budget. Lacking a robust infrastructure, band-aid fixes can get thrown on top of a weak foundation. When a company grows, stability and expandability problems can impede the productivity of the organization. These badly built environments require proper analysis, smart long-term planning, and broad-based IT knowledge to evolve to a network architecture that can provide the stable foundation to handle current business requirements and ease downstream growth.

  • Work with Problem Solvers Instead of Technology Resellers
    Smaller offices need advice and technical education to negotiate an increasingly complex array of product alternatives available for accelerating business success and improving efficiency. They do not need a network engineer who is attempting to sell a specific vendor's technology. Network support and product selling can result in a scenario where the proposed solution is built around a profitable product rather than the true needs of a client. Progent eliminates these conflicts by selling only services rather than products. This allows Progent to align technical expertise with the real interests of clients.

How Is Progent Different from Other Support Firms?
Progent is a Microsoft Certified Partner consulting firm and Progent's staff size, depth of technical background, refined remote support tools, and familiarity with enterprise networking allow offices to avoid the pitfalls associated with excessive dependence on smaller consulting organizations, independent freelance consultants, or over-stretched internal resources.

Progent adds value by offering:

  • Value Pricing
    Progent's pricing policy is to bill for phone support and on-premises help per minute. As a result, you pay just for received services. Progent does not impose a higher rate for after-hours or priority support, and inside California or in areas where Progent provides on-site support, Progent does not bill for travel except for urgent support where on-site work is less than 4 hours. In addition, Progent applies no initialization fee and requires no monthly commitment for services provided during regular business hours. Many service firms demand large minimum fees or charge for every fifteen minutes or longer. Progent's fine granularity avoids large invoices for fast repairs so you won't be tempted to permit minor problems to stay unaddressed.

  • Full Documentation of Delivered Services
    Progent has developed a comprehensive service reporting system that records and organizes detailed documentation for all delivered support activities. Unlike some independent consultants or local support firms who provide scant documentation or details of tasks performed, each service delivered by Progent is accompanied by full documentation. Each Progent staff member has use of the service documentation transmitted by every staff member to every client. The practice of documenting and archiving service records allows more effective service and avoids a variety of common problems such as when a service customer is virtually held hostage to a consultant who refuses to release vital service information.

  • 24x7 Server Monitoring with MS System Center Operations Manager
    Progent is one of the only support firms to provide 24x7 network monitoring services based on Microsoft Operations Manager. MS System Center Operations Manager causes your computer support to be proactive rather than reactive. By revealing potential problems before they result in lost productivity, network monitoring can save your information network from stressful and costly availability losses.
