Benefits of Progent's IT Support for Businesses in Long Beach
Progent's online support services allow your Long Beach company to experience the advantages of on-call, enterprise-grade IT support without the cost of managing a full-time IT staff. Your network will derive added strategic value by becoming increasingly reliable, efficient, and protected. Advantages to your business include:

  • Convenient virtual expansion of your local support resources
    For most organizations in Long Beach or anywhere in California, nearby network support providers, whether consisting of independent consultants or an in-house maintenance staff, can solve the majority of technical issues. However, serious problems can strike when your regular resources are overstretched or unavailable, and some problems may be associated with IT products that is unfamiliar to your onsite support technicians. In these cases, Progent's online service specialists provide an easy, quick, and economical way to augment your regular help and to transfer valuable knowledge to improve your ability to resolve downstream issues locally.

  • Less Reliance on Individual Consultants
    For network support, smaller organizations often rely on individual freelance service providers. Although freelance service people carry less internal costs than larger service organizations and can often charge marginally less, they are often overbooked, making it hard to respond rapidly to crisis situations. If a freelance service provider is occupied with another client, sick, on vacation, or in class, the lack of reserve help may require your company to wait for help during an IT crisis. As your company grows, network downtime and trouble with vital software become more costly. The money you thought you were saving on a freelancer can be consumed quickly by lost productivity. Progent offers a ready source of backup service expertise to insure your network stays available.

  • Build a Solid Basis for Seamless Expansion
    Companies typically begin with an IT architecture created on a shoestring budget. Lacking a scalable infrastructure, slap-dash repairs can get piled onto a weak foundation. As a company grows, reliability and expandability problems can hinder the success of the business. These poorly designed systems need proper assessment, intelligent long-term planning, and extensive technical expertise to upgrade to a system architecture able to deliver the solid foundation to handle vital business requirements and ease downstream expansion.

  • Work with Solution Providers Rather Than Product Vendors
    Smaller businesses need guidance and technical training to negotiate an ever more complicated array of technology alternatives capable of accelerating business growth and improving productivity. They do not need a computer consultant who is attempting to earn a commission on a specific vendor's products. IT consulting and product sales can lead to a scenario where the recommended solution is built around a profitable technology rather than the true requirements of a business. Progent eliminates these dilemmas by offering only services rather than products. This enables Progent to match IT expertise with the real needs of customers.
