- Competitive By-the-Minute Rates
Progent bills at affordable by-the-minute rates for access to proven support experts. Progentís Microsoft and Cisco Premier engineers are fast, effective, and experienced. By billing at a reasonable per-minute rate and solving problems fast, Progent offers small and mid-size companies the top ROI you can find in the country for network consulting.
- Simple Engagement Model with No Retainers or Surcharges for Standard Services
Progent's streamlined per-minute engagement model demands no complex service agreements, minimum commitments, or concealed surcharges for support services delivered during normal working hours. Many support firms have minimum charges or other extra charges that inflate service costs. For online help, you are billed only for the actual minutes Progent uses working on your problem. If it only takes ten minutes to solve your difficulty, then you only pay for those few minutes. For scheduled on-location service calls booked at least one day ahead, you pay only for the time when Progent's consultant is there on site fixing your technical issues. No on-site surcharges, travel fees, or expenses. Just Progent's low per-minute rate. For emergency same-day on-premises support jobs, you may have to pay for our consultant's driving time, but not at a higher emergency rate. Because Progent offers a large pool of seasoned consultants located throughout the area and in key regions across the United States, a capable consultant is usually nearby to assist you.

Progent provides services as efficiently as feasible so as to produce fast, low-cost solutions. By taking advantage of advanced technology, Progent streamlines support logistics and minimizes operational overhead. Progent's online help and proactive monitoring drive service bills down significantly by resolving problems quickly and avoiding serious breakdowns. Progent's efficient virtual office network allows Progent's support staff to concentrate on fixing IT issues and spend less time on travel.
Progent's unique internal support database allows Progent's consultants to analyze and resolve problems quickly and to collaborate with colleagues to find best-of-breed solutions.
- Remote Support
Progent is a pioneer in providing protected remote support to business networks worldwide. When practiced correctly, remote service provides significant productivity improvements and cost reductions by dealing with issues in a small percentage of the time that would be needed for an on-premises service visit. Progent's remote service professionals know how to resolve problems quickly, and Progent's low-granularity billing scheme for online service shields customers from being billed for help that is never provided.
- Proactive Monitoring
ProSight WAN Watch is a cloud-based network infrastructure management service that provides an affordable solution for small and mid-size organizations to monitor and manage network devices such as routers and switches, firewalls, and Wi-FI access points plus servers, desktops, smartphones and other networked devices.
