- Competitive By-the-Minute Rates
Progent bills at affordable by-the-minute rates for access to proven support experts. Progent's Microsoft and Cisco Certified engineers are fast, efficient, and experienced. By billing at a reasonable by-the-minute rate and solving problems fast, Progent gives small and medium-size businesses the top return-on-investment you can find 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 complicated contracts, retainers, or hidden charges for support services provided during regular business hours. Many support organizations have minimum charges or similar extra fees that inflate support bills. For online support, you pay only for the actual time Progent spends dealing with your problem. If it only requires a few minutes to resolve your problem, then you only pay for those minutes. For scheduled on-location support calls reserved at least one day ahead, you owe only for the period when our consultant is actually on site solving your technical issues. No on-site surcharges, travel time, or expenses. Simply Progent's low per-minute rate. For emergency same-day on-premises support jobs, you may be required to pay for the Progent consultant's travel time, but not at an increased expedited service rate. Since Progent maintains an extensive team of expert engineers located across the area and in key regions across the U.S, an available consultant is usually close by to help.
- Low Overhead Through Leveraged Technology
Progent provides services as efficiently as possible in order to come up with fast, low-cost solutions. By exploiting advanced technology, Progent streamlines service delivery and minimizes operational overhead. Progent's online support and automated monitoring push service costs down significantly by resolving anomalies fast and avoiding serious breakdowns. Progent's efficient virtual office network enables Progent's consultants to spend more time on resolving information technology problems 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 leader in providing secure remote help to business information systems worldwide. When performed properly, remote service provides dramatic productivity enhancements and cost savings by dealing with problems in a small percentage of the time that would be needed for an on-premises support visit. Progent's remote service professionals can resolve problems rapidly, and Progent's per minuite billing model for online support shields clients from having to pay for help that is never delivered.
- 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.
