Benefits of Progent's Network Help for Offices in Irvine
Progent's online IT consulting services enable your Irvine business to experience the benefits of on-call, enterprise-level IT support without the cost of managing a full-time IT organization. Your network will acquire added business value by becoming more available, productive, and protected. Benefits to your business include:

  • Convenient remote extension of your on-site support resources
    With most businesses in Irvine or anywhere in California, nearby network service providers, whether consisting of independent consultants or a full-time IT staff, can take care of typical technical issues. However, major troubles can occur when your regular support personnel are overstretched or absent, and some problems may stem from technology that is unfamiliar to your local support personnel. In these cases, Progent's on-call service experts give you an easy, quick, and budget-friendly solution to augment your regular resources and to pass on valuable knowledge to improve your capability to resolve future issues in-house.

  • Reduced Dependence on Individual Service Providers
    For network maintenance, smaller businesses often depend on independent freelance service providers. Although independent service people have smaller internal costs than larger service organizations and can afford to charge marginally less, they are occasionally stretched too thin, making it hard to respond quickly to crisis situations. If an independent consultant is busy with another customer, ill, on vacation, or in training, the lack of backup help may force your business to go without assistance during an emergency. As your company grows, system unavailability and problems with vital software become more costly. The money you thought you were saving on an independent can be eaten up quickly by lost productivity. Progent provides a ready source of backup support experts to insure your IT system stays available.

  • Create a Scalable Basis for Seamless Expansion
    Organizations often start with an IT architecture created on a shoestring budget. Lacking a robust framework, slap-dash fixes often get thrown on top of an unstable foundation. As a company grows, stability and expandability issues can impede the productivity of the organization. Such poorly designed systems require careful analysis, smart long-term planning, and wide technical knowledge to evolve to a system architecture able to provide the solid foundation to handle vital business requirements and facilitate downstream expansion.

  • Work with Solution Providers Rather Than Technology Vendors
    Smaller businesses need advice and technical training to negotiate an ever more complicated array of technology options capable of promoting business growth and enhancing productivity. These companies do not need a computer consultant who is attempting to resell a certain vendor's products. IT consulting and product selling can lead to a scenario where the recommended solution is built around a profitable technology rather than the true needs of a client. Progent avoids these conflicts of interest by selling only services rather than products. This allows Progent to match technical expertise with the real interests of customers.

How Is Progent Unique from Other Service Firms?
Progent is a Microsoft Partner consulting firm and Progent's staff size, breadth of IT expertise, fine tuned support software, and familiarity with corporate IT allow companies to avoid the pitfalls of exclusive reliance on smaller service firms, independent freelance service providers, or limited internal resources.

  • Value Pricing
    Progent's pricing policy is to bill for online support and in-person visits per minute. Consequently, you owe only for received support.

Also, Progent applies no minimum fee and requires no retainer for services provided during regular working hours. Many service organizations demand substantial minimum payments or charge for each fifteen minutes or longer. Progent's fine granularity eliminates large bills for fast repairs so you will not be tempted to allow simple problems to stay unaddressed.

  • Complete Documentation of IT Services
    Progent has created a sophisticated support reporting system that stores and formats detailed documentation for all billed services. Unlike some independent consultants or small support organizations who offer scant documentation or specifics of tasks performed, each service delivered by Progent is tracked by full documentation. Each Progent staff member has access to the support reports sent by each staff member to every client. The practice of documenting and archiving support activity allows more effective service and avoids a slew of typical misfortunes such as when a support client is effectively held captive to a consultant who wonít let go of vital service information.

  • 24x7 Server Monitoring with MS Operations Manager
    Progent is one of the only support firms to offer round-the-clock network tracking services based on MS Operations Manager. Microsoft System Center Operations Manager allows your computer support to be proactive rather than reactive. By anticipating potential issues before they cause lost productivity, system monitoring can keep your IT network from painful and expensive availability disruptions.
