- Competitive By-the-Minute Rates
Progent bills at affordable per minute rates for the services of proven support professionals. Progentís Microsoft Certified engineers are quick, efficient, and experienced. By billing at a reasonable per-minute rate and resolving problems fast, Progent offers small and medium-size companies 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 by-the-minute engagement model requires no complex service agreements, minimum commitments, or concealed surcharges for services delivered during normal business hours. Many service firms have minimum commitments or other added charges that inflate service bills. For online help, you are billed just for the logged minutes Progent uses working on your technical issues. If it only takes ten minutes to solve your difficulty, then you are only charged for those few minutes. For scheduled on-site support calls reserved more than 24 hours in advance, you owe only for the period when our consultant is actually on site fixing your technical issues. No on-location surcharges, driving time, or expenses. Just our competitive per-minute rate. For emergency immediate on-site support jobs, you could be required to pay for the Progent engineer's travel time, but not at an increased emergency rate. Because Progent offers an extensive team of seasoned consultants situated across the area and in key regions throughout the U.S, an available consultant is normally close by to help.

Progent provides support in the most efficient way possible so as to come up with fast, affordable solutions.

Progent's online help and proactive monitoring drive support costs down dramatically by resolving anomalies quickly and preventing catastrophic failures. Progent's sophisticated virtual office network enables Progent's support staff to focus on resolving network problems and waste 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

When performed correctly, remote service offers significant productivity improvements and cost savings by dealing with issues in a fraction of the time that would be needed for an in-person service call. Progent's remote service experts are able to resolve problems rapidly, and Progent's per minuite billing model for remote service shields customers from being billed for support that is never provided.
