Advantages of Progent's IT Support for Organizations in Bakersfield
Progent's online IT consulting services enable your Bakersfield company to have the benefits of on-call, enterprise-level network support without the expense of maintaining an in-house IT staff. Your network will acquire added strategic worth by becoming more available, efficient, and secure. Advantages to your business include:

  • Convenient remote expansion of your local support resources
    For most companies in Bakersfield and throughout California, local network service providers, whether made up of outside consultants or a full-time IT staff, can solve typical technical problems. On the other hand, major troubles can spring up when local support personnel are too busy or unavailable, and some trouble may be associated with IT products that is beyond the scope of your usual service technicians. In these situations, Progent's online support professionals give you an easy, fast, and economical way to augment your regular resources and to convey useful information to increase your capability to deal with future problems in-house.

  • Reduced Reliance on Individual Service Providers
    For IT maintenance, smaller businesses often rely on independent freelance consultants. Although independent consultants have smaller internal costs than larger support firms and can often charge marginally less, they are often stretched too thin, making it impossible to respond rapidly to crisis situations. If a freelance consultant is occupied with another client, sick, on vacation, or in class, the lack of backup personnel may force your company to go without help during an IT crisis. As your network expands, network downtime and trouble with vital applications are more expensive. The money you thought you were conserving on a freelancer can be consumed quickly by reduced productivity. Progent provides a reliable source of backup service experts to insure your IT system remains available.

  • Create a Scalable Basis for Seamless Growth
    Companies typically begin with an IT system created on a shoestring budget. Lacking a scalable infrastructure, slap-dash fixes often get piled on top of a shaky foundation. When a network grows, stability and expandability issues can impede the success of the organization. Such poorly designed environments require proper analysis, smart long-term planning, and broad-based technical knowledge to upgrade to a system infrastructure that can offer the stable foundation to handle current business demands and simplify future expansion.

  • Interact with Problem Solvers Rather Than Technology Vendors
    Smaller offices need guidance and technical education to navigate through an ever more complex array of technology alternatives capable of promoting business growth and improving efficiency. These companies hardly need a network consultant who is attempting to sell a certain vendor's products. Network consulting and product selling can lead to a scenario where the proposed solution is built around a predetermined technology instead of the true requirements of a business. Progent eliminates these conflicts of interest by selling only services instead of products. This enables Progent to align technical expertise with the best interests of clients.

What Makes Progent Different from Other Service Firms?
Progent is a Microsoft Gold Certified Partner consulting firm and Progent's head count, breadth of IT background, refined support software, and familiarity with corporate IT enable offices to avoid the pitfalls of exclusive dependence on smaller consulting firms, individual freelance service providers, or limited internal IT help.

This guarantees that you get not only world-class technical capability, but also a support engineer with proven methods for applying technical knowledge to resolve real-world network problems rapidly.

  • Value Pricing
    Progent's pricing policy is to charge for remote service and in-person help per minute. Consequently, you owe exclusively for delivered support. Progent does not impose a more expensive rate for after-hours or priority service, and within California or in areas where Progent offers on-site service, Progent does not charge for travel time except for emergency calls where on-site work is less than 4 hours. In addition, Progent imposes no initialization charge and asks no monthly commitment for support services delivered during regular working hours. Many service firms demand substantial minimum payments or charge for each quarter hour or longer. Progent's fine granularity does away with large invoices for quick solutions so you will not be tempted to allow simple problems to fester.

  • Complete Documentation of IT Services
    Progent has developed a sophisticated support reporting system that stores and formats complete documentation for all billed support activities. Unlike some independent consultants or small support organizations who provide minimal documentation or details of tasks done, each service provided by Progent is tracked by comprehensive documentation. Each Progent consultant has use of the service documentation sent by each staff member to each customer. The practice of documenting and archiving service records results in more effective service and avoids a variety of typical problems such as when a support customer is virtually held hostage to a consultant who wonít let go of vital service information.

  • 24x7 Server Monitoring with Microsoft System Center Operations Manager
    Progent is one of the only consulting firms to provide 24x7 system monitoring services powered by Microsoft System Center Operations Manager. MS Operations Manager allows your computer maintenance to be proactive rather than reactive. By revealing potential issues before they cause lost productivity, system monitoring can keep your IT network from stressful and costly service disruptions.
