Benefits of Progent's Network Help for Offices in Wichita
Progent's online technical help services enable your Wichita business to realize the advantages of immediate, expert IT support without the cost of managing an in-house IT organization. Your network will derive added strategic value by being more reliable, productive, and secure. Benefits to your company include:

  • Convenient remote expansion of your local IT resources
    With most companies in Wichita and throughout Kansas, nearby computer support resources, whether consisting of independent consultants or an internal IT staff, can solve typical network problems. However, IT crises sometimes strike when your regular resources are too busy or absent, and some problems may be associated with technology that is unfamiliar to your local service personnel. In these cases, Progent's on-call service experts give you an easy, fast, and budget-friendly way to supplement your local help and to transfer useful information to improve your capability to resolve future issues locally.

  • Reduced Dependence on Freelance Service Providers
    For network maintenance, smaller organizations often depend on independent freelance consultants. While independent service people carry smaller internal costs than larger service organizations and can afford to charge lower rates, they are often overbooked, making it impossible to respond rapidly to crisis situations. If an independent consultant is busy with another client, sick, on a trip, or in training, the lack of backup personnel may force your business to go without help during an emergency. As your network expands, system unavailability and trouble with critical software become more costly. The budget you thought you were saving on an independent can be consumed quickly by lost productivity. Progent offers an on-call source of reserve service expertise to insure your network is always available.

  • Build a Solid Basis for Smooth Expansion
    Companies often begin with an information system implemented on a shoestring budget. Without a proper infrastructure, band-aid fixes can get thrown on top of a weak foundation. When a company grows, reliability and scalability problems can hinder the success of the organization. These poorly built systems require proper analysis, intelligent strategic planning, and wide IT expertise to upgrade to a system architecture that can deliver the solid foundation to handle current business requirements and simplify downstream expansion.

  • Interact with Problem Solvers Instead of Product Vendors
    Smaller companies require guidance and technical training to navigate through an ever more complicated array of technology options capable of accelerating business growth and improving efficiency. These companies hardly need a computer consultant who is trying to earn a commission on a specific vendor's products. Network support and product selling can result in a scenario where the recommended solution is designed around a profitable product instead of the true needs of a client. Progent avoids these conflicts by offering just services rather than products. This enables Progent to align technical consulting with the real interests of customers.

How Is Progent Unique from Other Service Firms?
Progent is a Microsoft Certified Partner support company and Progent's number of employees, range of IT background, refined remote support software, and understanding of corporate IT allow companies to avoid the limitations associated with exclusive dependence on smaller service organizations, independent freelance consultants, or over-stretched in-house IT help.

Progent adds value by offering:

  • Best Practices
    Progentís staff of Microsoft and Cisco Certified consultants average more than ten years of hands-on professional experience, in the trenches of network support, executing a broad range of IT tasks for a large array of clients.

This guarantees that you get not only expert IT capability, but also a support engineer with field-tested methods for applying computer knowledge to fix actual IT problems quickly.

  • Value Pricing
    Progent's pricing policy is to charge for remote service and on-site help by the minute. Consequently, you owe just for delivered services. Progent does not impose a more expensive rate for off-hours or priority support, and within California or in areas where Progent offers in-person service, Progent does not charge for travel time except for urgent support where on-site time is less than four hours. Also, Progent imposes no initialization charge and asks no retainer for services delivered during normal working hours. Many support firms demand substantial minimum fees or charge for every fifteen minutes or longer. Progent's fine granularity eliminates large invoices for fast fixes so you won't be forced to permit simple problems to stay unaddressed.

  • Complete Records of IT Services
    Progent has created a sophisticated service reporting system that records and formats detailed documentation for all delivered support activities. Unlike some independent consultants or small support firms who offer scant documentation or specifics of services done, every service delivered by Progent is accompanied by full documentation. Every Progent consultant has access to the service reports sent by every staff member to each client. The discipline of detailing and organizing service activity results in more effective service and avoids a variety of typical problems such as when a service client is virtually held captive to a consultant who refuses to release vital service information.

  • Automated Server Monitoring with Microsoft Operations Manager
    Progent is one of the few consulting companies to offer 24x7 network tracking services based on MS System Center Operations Manager. MS System Center Operations Manager causes your computer support to be anticipatory instead of reactive. By anticipating potential issues before they result in downtime, system monitoring can keep your information network from painful and expensive availability disruptions.
