Benefits of Progent's IT Support for Businesses in Bakersfield
Progent's remote technical help services allow your Bakersfield company to have the advantages of timely, expert IT support without the cost of maintaining a full-time IT organization. Your network will derive greater business value by being more available, efficient, and protected. Benefits to your business include:

  • Convenient virtual extension of your local IT resources
    With most businesses in Bakersfield or anywhere in California, local network support providers, whether represented by freelance consultants or an internal maintenance staff, can solve typical technical issues. However, serious problems can spring up when your regular support personnel are too busy or absent, and some trouble may stem from IT products that is beyond the scope of your local support people. In these cases, Progent's online support specialists give you an easy, quick, and budget-friendly way to augment your regular resources and to pass on valuable information to improve your ability to handle future problems in-house.

  • Less Dependence on Individual Service Providers
    For network maintenance, smaller companies commonly depend on independent freelance service providers. Although independent consultants have smaller internal costs than big consulting organizations and can often charge marginally less, they are sometimes overextended, making it hard to respond rapidly to crisis situations. If a freelance consultant is occupied with another customer, ill, on vacation, or in class, the absence of backup personnel may require your business to wait for assistance during an emergency. As your business expands, system downtime and problems with critical software are more costly. The budget you thought you were conserving on a freelancer can be eaten up quickly by lost productivity. Progent offers a dependable source of backup service expertise to insure your IT system stays up and running.

  • Build a Solid Basis for Smooth Growth
    Businesses often begin with an information architecture created on a modest budget. Without a robust framework, band-aid fixes often get piled onto an unstable foundation. As a company grows, reliability and expandability problems can impede the success of the business. These poorly designed environments need careful analysis, intelligent strategic planning, and extensive IT expertise to upgrade to a system architecture able to deliver the solid foundation to handle vital business requirements and simplify downstream expansion.

  • Work with Problem Solvers Rather Than Technology Sellers
    Smaller companies require guidance and technical education to negotiate an ever more complex array of technology alternatives available for promoting business growth and enhancing efficiency. Businesses do not need a computer engineer who is trying to earn a commission on a specific vendor's technology. IT support and product sales can result in a scenario where the recommended solution is designed around a profitable product instead of the true requirements of a client. Progent avoids these conflicts of interest by selling only services instead of products. This enables Progent to match IT consulting with the real needs of customers.

How Is Progent Different from Other Service Organizations?
Progent is a Microsoft Partner consulting company and Progent's staff size, range of technical experience, fine tuned remote support software, and understanding of corporate IT allow companies to avoid the limitations associated with exclusive dependence on smaller consulting organizations, individual freelance service providers, or limited in-house resources.
