- Competitive By-the-Minute Rates
Progent charges competitive by-the-minute rates for the services of proven support professionals. Progentís Microsoft and Cisco certified engineers are fast, effective, and experienced. By billing at a competitive per-minute rate and resolving problems quickly, Progent offers small and mid-size companies the top return-on-investment you can find in Northern California for IT support.
- Simple Engagement Model with No Retainers or Surcharges for Standard Services
Progent's streamlined by-the-minute engagement model demands no complicated contracts, minimum commitments, or concealed surcharges for services delivered during regular business hours. Many service firms have minimum commitments or similar added fees that inflate service bills. For remote help, you are billed only for the actual time Progent uses working on your technical issues. If it only takes ten minutes to resolve your problem, then you only pay for those minutes. For scheduled on-location support calls reserved more than one day ahead, you pay just for the period when Progent's consultant is actually on site fixing your problems. No on-location surcharges, driving time, or expenses. Just Progent's low by-the-minute rate. For emergency same-day on-premises service jobs, you could have to pay for the Progent consultant's travel time, but not at a higher emergency rate. Because Progent maintains a large team of expert consultants situated across the Northern California area and in major cities across the United States, a capable expert is normally close by to assist you.
- Low Overhead Through Leveraged Technology
Progent provides support in the most efficient way possible so as to come up with fast, affordable solutions. By leveraging the latest technology, Progent trims the costs from support logistics and reduces administrative expenses. Progent's online help and automated monitoring push support bills down significantly by handling anomalies quickly and preventing catastrophic failures. Progent's sophisticated virtual office environment allows Progent's support staff to concentrate on fixing 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 pioneer in delivering secure remote support to business networks worldwide. When performed properly, remote service provides dramatic productivity improvements and cost reductions by dealing with issues in a small percentage of the time that would be needed for an on-site support visit. Progent's remote service professionals know how to solve problems quickly, and Progent's by-the-minute billing scheme for online help protects clients from having to pay for support that is never provided.
- Proactive Monitoring
