How Your Long Beach Company Can Contact Progent's Remote Support Professionals
To get in touch with Progent about emergency remote support with Windows, macOS and OS X, or Linux/UNIX environments, go to Progent's Nationwide Remote Help, phone 1-800-993-9400, or visit Contact Progent. For businesses and new businesses in Long Beach or anywhere in the state of California, Progent's phone-based network support engineers can provide professional and affordable IT help the instant your company requires it. More than a decade of offering remote tech support has led to Microsoft Partner status for Progent's consulting experts and has helped Progent to acquire high-end troubleshooting capability and to fine tune online connectivity technology to fix IT problems rapidly while eliminating the cost and lost productivity that comes with on-premises support visits.

Advantages of Progent's IT Support for Organizations in Long Beach
Progent's remote network troubleshooting services enable your Long Beach organization to realize the benefits of immediate, expert network support without the cost of maintaining an in-house IT staff. Your network will acquire added business worth by becoming increasingly available, productive, and secure. Advantages to your business include:

  • Seamless virtual expansion of your local IT resources
    With most organizations in Long Beach and throughout California, nearby computer service resources, whether made up of independent consultants or an internal maintenance staff, can handle typical technical problems. On the other hand, serious problems might strike when local resources are too busy or absent, and some trouble may stem from technology that is unfamiliar to your onsite support technicians. In these situations, Progent's online support experts offer a convenient, fast, and economical way to augment your local help and to transfer useful information to improve your capability to deal with downstream problems in-house.

  • Less Dependence on Freelance Service Providers
    For network support, smaller businesses often depend on individual freelance consultants. While independent service people carry smaller internal costs than larger support organizations and can often charge marginally less, they are occasionally stretched too thin, making it hard to respond rapidly to urgent situations. If an independent service provider is occupied with another customer, sick, on a trip, or in class, the absence of fallback personnel may require your company to wait for help during an emergency. As your company grows, system unavailability and problems with vital software become more expensive. The budget you thought you were saving on a freelancer can be eaten up quickly by lost productivity. Progent provides a reliable source of reserve service experts to insure your network stays up and running.

  • Create a Scalable Foundation for Seamless Growth
    Businesses often begin with an IT architecture created on a shoestring budget. Without a scalable infrastructure, band-aid fixes can get thrown on top of a shaky foundation. When a network grows, reliability and expandability problems can impede the success of the organization. These badly built systems require proper analysis, intelligent strategic planning, and wide IT knowledge to evolve to a system infrastructure that can provide the solid foundation to handle critical business demands and facilitate future expansion.

  • Work with Problem Solvers Instead of Product Vendors
    Smaller businesses need guidance and technical training to negotiate an increasingly complicated array of technology alternatives available for accelerating business success and enhancing productivity. Businesses do not need a computer consultant who is trying to earn a commission on a specific vendor's technology. Network consulting and product sales can result in a scenario where the recommended solution is built around a predetermined product instead of the genuine needs of a client. Progent eliminates these conflicts of interest by offering only services instead of products. This enables Progent to match IT expertise with the best interests of clients.

How Is Progent Different from Other Service Firms?
Progent is a Microsoft Certified Partner support firm and Progent's number of employees, breadth of technical background, fine tuned remote support tools, and familiarity with enterprise networking allow companies to avoid the limitations of excessive reliance on smaller service organizations, independent freelance consultants, or over-stretched in-house IT help.

Progent adds value by providing:

  • Proven Methodology
    Progentís team of Microsoft and Cisco Certified experts average longer than ten years of real-world industry experience, in the trenches of network service, performing a broad variety of technical projects for a large array of businesses. Each Progent consultant shares a proven collection of personal best practices which are incorporated into shared leading practices standards that Progent instills in its consulting staff. This guarantees that you get not only expert IT capability, but also a consultant with field-tested approaches for applying computer knowledge to fix actual network problems rapidly.

  • Value Pricing
    Progent's pricing policy is to charge for remote service and on-site visits per minute. As a result, you are invoiced exclusively for received services. Progent does not impose a more expensive rate for after-hours or emergency service, and inside California or in regions where Progent provides on-site support, Progent does not bill for travel time except for urgent support where on-site work is less than four hours. In addition, Progent imposes no initialization fee and asks no monthly commitment for support services provided during regular business hours. Many service firms impose substantial minimum fees or charge for each fifteen minutes or longer. Progent's fine granularity avoids large bills for quick solutions so you will not be forced to allow simple problems to fester.

  • Information Transfer
    Progent practices knowledge transfer from Progent's consultants to customers. By educating clients to deal with technical issues that are within their comfort zone, Progent can concentrate on delivering high-value skills where Progent has little competition. Businesses who work with trusted freelance consultants or who employ in-house support staffs benefit when Progent passes on knowledge about critical technology and tested methodologies to make their IT environments more reliable, protected, and productive.

  • Automated Network Monitoring with Microsoft Operations Manager
    Progent is one of the only consulting companies to offer 24x7 system monitoring services based on MS System Center Operations Manager. MS System Center Operations Manager causes your computer support to be proactive instead of reactive.
