- Competitive By-the-Minute Rates
Progent bills at affordable per minute rates for access to seasoned consulting professionals. Progentís Microsoft Premier engineers are quick, efficient, and experienced. By billing at a competitive by-the-minute rate and resolving problems quickly, Progent gives small and medium-size businesses the best return-on-investment available in the country for information system support.
- Simple Engagement Model with No Retainers or Surcharges for Standard Services
Progent's simple per-minute engagement model requires no complex contracts, retainers, or concealed surcharges for services delivered during normal business hours. Many service organizations have minimum charges or other added charges that push service bills. For online help, you are billed just for the actual minutes Progent uses working on your problem. If it only requires ten minutes to solve your difficulty, then you only pay for those few minutes. For scheduled on-location service work reserved at least one day in advance, you pay only for the period when Progent's consultant is actually on site fixing your technical issues. No on-location charges, driving time, or expenses. Simply our competitive per-minute rate. For emergency same-day in-person support jobs, you may be required to pay for our engineer's travel time, but never a higher expedited service rate. Since Progent offers a large team of expert engineers located throughout the service territory and in key regions across the U.S, a capable consultant is normally close by to assist you.
