- Competitive By-the-Minute Rates
Progent charges affordable per minute rates for access to seasoned consulting experts. Progentís Microsoft Premier consultants are fast, effective, and experienced. By charging a reasonable per-minute rate and resolving problems fast, Progent offers small and mid-size businesses the best return-on-investment available in the country for IT consulting.
- Simple Engagement Model with No Retainers or Surcharges for Standard Services
Progent's simple by-the-minute engagement model demands no complex service agreements, minimum commitments, or hidden charges for services delivered during normal working hours. Many support organizations have minimum commitments or other extra charges that drive up service bills. For remote support, you are billed just for the logged minutes Progent uses dealing with your technical issues. If it only requires ten minutes to solve your problem, then you only pay for those few minutes. For regularly scheduled on-site service calls reserved more than 24 hours ahead, you owe just for the time when Progent's expert is there on site solving your problems. No on-location charges, travel time, or expenses. Just Progent's low per-minute rate. For urgent immediate in-person service jobs, you could have to pay for our engineer's driving time, but not at a higher emergency rate. Because Progent maintains a large team of expert engineers situated across the service territory and in key cities across the United States, an available expert is usually nearby to assist you.

Progent provides support as efficiently as feasible so as to produce timely, affordable solutions. By leveraging advanced technology, Progent trims the costs from service logistics and minimizes administrative overhead. Progent's remote support and proactive monitoring drive support bills down dramatically by handling anomalies fast and preventing serious breakdowns. Progent's sophisticated virtual office environment enables Progent's support staff to concentrate on resolving information technology 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 delivering secure remote help to business networks anywhere. When performed correctly, online support offers dramatic productivity enhancements and cost savings by dealing with issues in a fraction of the time that would be needed for an on-site service visit. Progent's remote service experts know how to resolve problems rapidly, and Progent's low-granularity billing model for online help protects customers from being billed for support that is never provided.
