Advantages of Progent's IT Support for Businesses in Los Angeles California
Progent's remote IT consulting services allow your Los Angeles company to experience the advantages of immediate, enterprise-class network support without the expense of managing an in-house IT organization. Your network will acquire greater business value by becoming increasingly reliable, efficient, and protected. Advantages to your company include:
- Seamless remote extension of your on-site IT resources
For most companies in Los Angeles California, local computer service resources, whether made up of outside consultants or a full-time IT staff, can solve typical network problems. On the other hand, serious problems can spring up when your regular resources are too busy or unavailable, and some trouble may be associated with IT products that is unfamiliar to your onsite service personnel. In these situations, Progent's on-call service experts give you a convenient, fast, and affordable solution to supplement your local resources and to pass on valuable knowledge to improve your ability to deal with downstream problems locally.
- Reduced Dependence on Freelance Service Providers
For network support, smaller businesses often depend on individual freelance consultants. While independent service people have smaller overhead than big service organizations and can afford to charge marginally less, they are occasionally stretched too thin, making it impossible to respond rapidly to urgent situations. If a freelance service provider is occupied with another customer, sick, on vacation, or in class, the absence of reserve personnel may force your company to wait for assistance during an IT crisis. As your network grows, network downtime and problems with critical software become more costly. The budget you thought you were conserving on a freelancer can be consumed quickly by lost productivity. Progent offers a dependable source of backup support experts to make sure your network is always available.
- Build a Solid Foundation for Smooth Expansion
Companies typically start with an IT system implemented on a modest budget. Lacking a scalable framework, band-aid repairs often get thrown on top of an unstable foundation. When a company grows, stability and scalability problems can hinder the productivity of the organization. Such poorly built environments require proper analysis, intelligent strategic planning, and extensive IT knowledge to upgrade to a system architecture able to deliver the solid foundation to handle current business demands and simplify downstream expansion.
- Work with Problem Solvers Instead of Product Resellers
Smaller offices need guidance and technical training to navigate through an increasingly complex array of product options capable of accelerating business success and improving productivity. These companies do not need a computer engineer who is attempting to sell a certain vendor's products. IT consulting and product sales can result in a situation where the recommended
solution is built around a predetermined product instead of the true requirements of a business. Progent avoids these dilemmas by offering just services rather than products. This enables Progent to align technical consulting with the best needs of clients.
How Is Progent Unique from Other Support Firms?
Progent is a Microsoft Partner support company and Progent's head count, range of IT background, refined remote support software, and familiarity with enterprise networking enable businesses to escape the limitations associated with excessive dependence on smaller consulting organizations, individual freelance consultants, or limited in-house IT help.
Progent adds value by offering:
