- Competitive By-the-Minute Rates
Progent charges competitive by-the-minute rates for access to seasoned consulting professionals. Progentís Microsoft and Cisco Certified consultants are quick, efficient, and experienced. By charging a competitive per-minute rate and solving problems fast, Progent gives small and mid-size businesses the top ROI available in the country for information system consulting.
- Simple Engagement Model with No Retainers or Surcharges for Standard Services
Progent's simple by-the-minute engagement model requires no complicated service agreements, retainers, or hidden charges for services provided during regular business hours. Many support organizations have minimum charges or other added charges that drive up service bills. For online help, you are billed just for the logged time Progent spends dealing with your technical issues. If it only takes ten minutes to solve your problem, then you only pay for those few minutes. For regularly scheduled on-site support work reserved at least one day ahead, you pay only for the period when our consultant is there on site fixing your technical issues. No on-location surcharges, driving fees, or expenses. Just our competitive per-minute rate. For emergency immediate in-person support calls, you may have to pay for our engineer's travel time, but never an increased emergency rate. Since Progent offers an extensive pool of expert engineers located throughout the service territory and in major cities across the United States, a capable expert is usually nearby to assist you.
