Advantages of Progent's Network Help for Offices in Los Angeles
Progent's online network troubleshooting services enable your Los Angeles business to enjoy the benefits of timely, enterprise-level IT support without the cost of maintaining an in-house IT organization. Your network will derive added strategic value by being increasingly reliable, productive, and secure. Advantages to your business include:

  • Convenient virtual expansion of your local support resources
    For most offices in Los Angeles or anywhere in California, nearby computer support providers, whether consisting of freelance consultants or an in-house IT staff, can deal with the majority of technical problems. However, IT crises might strike when local support personnel are too busy or absent, and some trouble may stem from IT products that is unfamiliar to your onsite service technicians. In these cases, Progent's online service experts give you a convenient, fast, and economical way to supplement your regular resources and to transfer useful knowledge to improve your capability to resolve future issues in-house.

  • Reduced Dependence on Freelance Service Providers
    For IT maintenance, smaller businesses commonly rely on individual freelance consultants. While independent service people have less internal costs than larger support firms and can afford to charge lower rates, they are sometimes overextended, making it difficult to respond quickly to urgent situations. If a freelance consultant is occupied with another customer, sick, on vacation, or in class, the lack of fallback help may force your business to wait for assistance during an emergency. As your company expands, network downtime and problems with vital software are more expensive. The money you thought you were saving on a freelancer can be eaten up fast by reduced productivity. Progent provides a dependable source of reserve support experts to make sure your IT system stays up and running.

  • Create a Solid Foundation for Seamless Expansion
    Organizations often begin with an IT architecture implemented on a shoestring budget. Lacking a scalable infrastructure, slap-dash fixes often get thrown on top of a shaky foundation. As a company grows, stability and expandability problems can impede the success of the organization. Such badly built systems need careful analysis, intelligent long-term planning, and wide IT expertise to evolve to a system infrastructure able to provide the stable foundation to meet critical business requirements and ease downstream expansion.

  • Work with Solution Providers Rather Than Product Resellers
    Smaller companies need advice and technical training to navigate through an increasingly complicated array of product alternatives capable of accelerating business growth and improving productivity. They do not need a network consultant who is trying to resell a certain vendor's technology. IT consulting and product selling can result in a situation where the proposed solution is built around a predetermined product instead of the true needs of a client. Progent avoids these conflicts of interest by selling only services rather than products. This allows Progent to match IT consulting with the real needs of customers.

How Is Progent Unique from Other Support Firms?
Progent is a Microsoft Partner consulting company and Progent's staff size, depth of technical knowledge, fine tuned remote support tools, and familiarity with corporate IT enable offices to escape the pitfalls of excessive dependence on smaller consulting organizations, individual freelance consultants, or limited in-house resources.
