Benefits of Progent's Network Help for Businesses in Los Angeles
Progent's online support services enable your Los Angeles organization to enjoy the advantages of on-call, world-class network support without the expense of maintaining a full-time IT organization. Your network will acquire greater strategic worth by becoming increasingly available, efficient, and secure. Advantages to your company include:
- Convenient remote extension of your on-site support resources
For most companies in Los Angeles or anywhere in California, local network service resources, whether represented by outside consultants or a full-time IT staff, can resolve typical network issues. On the other hand, major troubles might occur when local resources are too busy or absent, and some problems may stem from IT products that is unfamiliar to your local support people. In these situations, Progent's online service professionals provide a convenient, quick, and budget-friendly way to supplement your local resources and to pass on useful information to improve your capability to deal with downstream issues locally.
- Reduced Dependence on Freelance Service Providers
For IT support, smaller organizations often depend on independent freelance consultants. Although independent consultants carry less internal costs than big consulting companies and can often charge lower rates, they are sometimes stretched too thin, making it impossible to respond quickly to crisis situations. If a freelance service provider is occupied with another client, ill, on vacation, or in training, the absence of fallback help may require your company to wait for help during an emergency. As your company expands, network downtime and trouble with vital applications are more costly. The budget you thought you were conserving on an independent can be eaten up quickly by reduced productivity. Progent provides a dependable source of reserve service expertise to make sure your network stays available.
- Create a Solid Basis for Seamless Growth
Businesses typically begin with an IT system created on a modest budget. Lacking a strong infrastructure, slap-dash fixes often get thrown onto a weak foundation. When a company grows, reliability and expandability problems can hinder the productivity of the organization. Such badly designed systems require careful assessment, smart long-term planning, and wide IT knowledge to upgrade to a network architecture able to provide the solid foundation to handle critical business requirements and ease downstream expansion.
- Work with Problem Solvers Rather Than Product Vendors
Smaller companies need advice and technical training to negotiate an ever more complicated maze of product options capable of accelerating business growth and improving productivity. Businesses do not need a network engineer who is attempting to earn a commission on a certain vendor's technology. IT support and product selling can lead to a scenario where the proposed
solution is built around a predetermined product instead of the true requirements of a business. Progent avoids these conflicts of interest by selling just services rather than products. This enables Progent to align IT consulting with the real interests of customers.
What Makes Progent Different from Other Support Firms?
Progent is a Microsoft Partner support firm and Progent's number of employees, range of IT expertise, fine tuned remote support software, and familiarity with enterprise networking allow companies to escape the pitfalls associated with exclusive reliance on smaller consulting organizations, independent freelance consultants, or limited in-house IT help.
Progent adds value by providing:
