Advantages of Progent's Network Help for Businesses in Long Beach
Progent's remote support services allow your Long Beach organization to realize the benefits of timely, world-class IT support without the cost of managing an in-house IT staff. Your network will acquire added strategic worth by becoming more reliable, productive, and secure. Benefits to your business include:
- Seamless virtual extension of your on-site IT resources
For most organizations in Long Beach and throughout California, nearby computer service resources, whether represented by outside consultants or an internal IT staff, can solve the majority of network issues. On the other hand, major troubles may strike when your regular resources are overstretched or unavailable, and some trouble may involve IT products that is beyond the scope of your onsite service people. In these situations, Progent's on-call support experts give you an easy, fast, and economical way to augment your local help and to transfer valuable information to improve your ability to handle downstream issues locally.
- Reduced Dependence on Freelance Service Providers
For network maintenance, smaller organizations commonly rely on independent freelance consultants. While freelance service people carry less overhead than larger service companies and can often charge lower rates, they are occasionally overbooked, making it hard to respond rapidly to urgent situations. If an independent service provider is busy with another client, sick, on vacation, or in training, the lack of fallback help may force your company to wait for help during an emergency. As your business grows, system downtime and problems with vital applications become more costly. The money you thought you were conserving on an independent can be consumed quickly by lost productivity. Progent offers an on-call source of reserve service expertise to insure your IT system stays up and running.
- Build a Solid Foundation for Smooth Expansion
Organizations typically start with an information architecture implemented on a shoestring budget. Without a strong infrastructure, slap-dash repairs can get piled onto a shaky foundation. As a network grows, reliability and scalability problems can impede the productivity of the business. These poorly built systems require proper assessment, intelligent strategic planning, and extensive IT knowledge to upgrade to a network architecture able to provide the solid foundation to meet critical business requirements and ease future growth.
- Interact with Problem Solvers Rather Than Product Resellers
Smaller companies need guidance and technical education to negotiate an ever more complex array of product options capable of accelerating business success and enhancing efficiency. These companies hardly need a network engineer who is trying to resell a certain vendor's products. Network support and product sales can lead to a scenario where the proposed
solution is designed around a profitable technology instead of the genuine requirements of a client. Progent eliminates these dilemmas by offering just services instead of products. This enables Progent to match technical consulting with the best needs of clients.
How Is Progent Different from Other Support Firms?
Progent is a Microsoft Partner support firm and Progent's head count, range of technical expertise, refined remote support software, and understanding of enterprise networking enable companies to escape the pitfalls of exclusive reliance on smaller consulting organizations, independent freelance service providers, or over-stretched internal resources.
Progent adds value by offering:
