Advantages of Progent's Network Help for Businesses in Beverly Hills
Progent's online IT consulting services allow your Beverly Hills company to have the benefits of immediate, enterprise-level IT support without the cost of managing an in-house IT staff. Your network will derive added business worth by becoming increasingly available, efficient, and secure. Advantages to your company include:

  • Seamless virtual extension of your local support resources
    For most companies in Beverly Hills and throughout California, nearby computer service resources, whether represented by independent consultants or an internal maintenance staff, can resolve the majority of technical issues. On the other hand, serious problems may occur when local resources are overstretched or unavailable, and some problems may be associated with IT products that is beyond the scope of your local support personnel. In these cases, Progent's online support experts offer an easy, fast, and economical solution to augment your regular help and to pass on valuable knowledge to increase your ability to handle future problems in-house.

  • Less Dependence on Individual Service Providers
    For IT maintenance, smaller businesses often depend on individual freelance consultants. Although freelance service people carry less overhead than larger support companies and can afford to charge marginally less, they are often overbooked, making it impossible to respond rapidly to urgent situations. If a freelance consultant is busy with another client, ill, on a trip, or in training, the lack of backup help may require your business to go without help during an IT crisis. As your company expands, system unavailability and trouble with vital applications are more expensive. The budget you thought you were conserving on a freelancer can be eaten up fast by lost productivity. Progent provides an on-call source of backup support expertise to insure your IT system stays up and running.

  • Create a Scalable Foundation for Seamless Growth
    Businesses typically begin with an IT system implemented on a modest budget. Without a scalable framework, slap-dash fixes often get thrown on top of a weak foundation. When a company grows, stability and expandability issues can impede the productivity of the organization. Such badly designed systems need proper assessment, smart long-term planning, and wide IT expertise to upgrade to a network infrastructure able to deliver the solid foundation to meet vital business requirements and simplify future expansion.

  • Interact with Solution Providers Instead of Product Sellers
    Smaller organizations require advice and technical education to negotiate an ever more complex maze of product options available for promoting business growth and enhancing productivity. They hardly need a network engineer who is attempting to resell a certain vendor's technology. Network consulting and product sales can result in a scenario where the recommended solution is built around a predetermined product rather than the genuine needs of a business. Progent eliminates these conflicts by offering just services rather than products. This allows Progent to match IT expertise with the best needs of clients.

What Makes Progent Different from Other Support Firms?
Progent is a Microsoft Certified Partner support company and Progent's number of employees, range of IT experience, fine tuned remote support software, and familiarity with enterprise networking allow offices to escape the pitfalls associated with excessive reliance on smaller consulting firms, individual freelance service providers, or limited internal IT help.

Progent adds value by offering:

  • Proven Methodology
    Progentís staff of Microsoft and Cisco Premier consultants average longer than ten years of hands-on industry experience, at the front lines of network support, performing a wide variety of IT projects for a large mix of clients.

  • Value Pricing
    Progent's pricing policy is to bill for phone support and on-premises help per minute. Consequently, you are charged exclusively for received support. Progent does not demand a more expensive rate for after-hours or urgent support, and inside California or in regions where Progent offers on-premises service, Progent does not charge for travel time except for emergency support where on-site time is less than four hours. In addition, Progent applies no service activation charge and requires no retainer for support services provided during regular working hours. Many service organizations demand substantial minimum fees or charge for each fifteen minutes or longer. Progent's fine granularity avoids big invoices for fast fixes so you will not be forced to allow minor problems to fester.

  • Complete Records of IT Services
    Progent has developed a sophisticated service reporting system that stores and formats detailed documentation for all delivered services. Unlike some freelance consultants or small support firms who offer minimal documentation or specifics of services done, every service delivered by Progent is accompanied by full documentation. Each Progent staff member has use of the support reports transmitted by every staff member to every customer. The practice of documenting and archiving service activity results in more efficient service and avoids a variety of common misfortunes such as when a service customer is effectively held captive to a consultant who refuses to let go of vital service information.

  • Remote Server Monitoring with Microsoft Operations Manager
    Progent is one of the only IT service firms to offer 24x7 remote tracking services based on Microsoft Operations Manager. MS Operations Manager allows your network maintenance to be proactive rather than reactive. By revealing potential problems before they result in downtime, system monitoring can keep your information network from stressful and expensive service disruptions.
