Benefits of Progent's IT Support for Businesses in Los Angeles
Progent's remote technical help services allow your Los Angeles company to experience the advantages of timely, enterprise-class network support without the cost of maintaining an in-house IT organization. Your information system will derive greater business worth by becoming increasingly reliable, efficient, and secure. Benefits to your company include:

  • Seamless virtual extension of your on-site IT resources
    With most companies in Los Angeles and throughout California, local network service providers, whether consisting of freelance consultants or a full-time maintenance staff, can solve the majority of network problems. On the other hand, serious problems may occur when local resources are overstretched or unavailable, and some trouble may stem from technology that is unfamiliar to your usual service people. In these cases, Progent's on-call support professionals provide a convenient, fast, and affordable solution to supplement your regular resources and to convey valuable knowledge to increase your capability to handle future problems in-house.

  • Reduced Dependence on Individual Service Providers
    For network support, smaller companies often rely on independent freelance service providers. Although independent consultants carry smaller internal costs than big consulting organizations and can often charge lower rates, they are often overextended, making it difficult to respond quickly to crisis situations. If a freelance service provider is occupied with another client, sick, on vacation, or in class, the absence of fallback personnel may force your business to go without assistance during an emergency. As your network grows, system unavailability and problems with critical software become more expensive. The budget you thought you were conserving on a freelancer can be eaten up quickly by reduced productivity. Progent provides a ready source of backup support expertise to insure your IT system is always up and running.

  • Build a Solid Basis for Smooth Expansion
    Businesses often start with an information system implemented on a modest budget. Without a strong infrastructure, band-aid fixes often get thrown on top of an unstable foundation. When a network grows, reliability and expandability problems can hinder the productivity of the business. Such badly designed environments require proper analysis, smart strategic planning, and extensive IT knowledge to evolve to a system infrastructure able to deliver the solid foundation to meet vital business requirements and simplify future expansion.

  • Interact with Solution Providers Instead of Product Resellers
    Smaller organizations require advice and technical education to navigate through an ever more complex maze of product alternatives capable of promoting business growth and improving efficiency. Businesses do not need a network engineer who is attempting to sell a specific vendor's products. IT consulting and product selling can lead to a scenario where the proposed solution is designed around a predetermined product instead of the true needs of a client. Progent eliminates these conflicts by offering just services instead of products. This enables Progent to match IT expertise with the best interests of clients.

What Makes Progent Unique from Other Support Firms?
Progent is a Microsoft Partner support firm and Progent's number of employees, breadth of IT background, fine tuned support software, and familiarity with corporate IT enable businesses to escape the limitations of excessive dependence on smaller consulting organizations, independent freelance consultants, or limited in-house IT help.
