Benefits of Progent's IT Support for Offices in Manhattan Beach
Progent's online support services enable your Manhattan Beach business to realize the benefits of on-call, enterprise-class network support without the cost of managing an in-house IT organization. Your information system will acquire added strategic worth by being increasingly available, efficient, and protected. Advantages to your company include:

  • Seamless virtual extension of your local IT resources
    For most organizations in Manhattan Beach and throughout California, local network service resources, whether made up of independent consultants or an in-house maintenance staff, can resolve the majority of network issues. On the other hand, major troubles might strike when local support personnel are overstretched or absent, and some trouble may stem from technology that is beyond the scope of your local service technicians. In these cases, Progent's online service professionals give you a convenient, quick, and budget-friendly way to supplement your regular resources and to transfer useful information to increase your ability to handle downstream issues locally.

  • Less Reliance on Individual Consultants
    For IT support, smaller organizations often rely on independent freelance service providers. While freelance service people have less overhead than big consulting firms and can often charge lower rates, they are sometimes overextended, making it impossible to respond rapidly to urgent situations. If a freelance service provider is busy with another customer, ill, on a trip, or in class, the lack of fallback help may force your company to wait for assistance during an emergency. As your network expands, system downtime and trouble with vital software are more costly. The money you thought you were saving on an independent can be eaten up quickly by lost productivity. Progent provides a ready source of reserve service expertise to make sure your IT system is always up and running.

  • Build a Solid Foundation for Seamless Expansion
    Companies typically start with an information system created on a modest budget. Lacking a scalable framework, band-aid repairs often get thrown on top of a shaky foundation. When a network grows, reliability and expandability issues can hinder the success of the organization. Such badly built systems need proper assessment, intelligent strategic planning, and broad-based technical knowledge to upgrade to a system architecture able to offer the stable foundation to handle current business requirements and simplify future expansion.

  • Work with Solution Providers Rather Than Product Sellers
    Smaller businesses need guidance and technical education to negotiate an ever more complicated array of product alternatives capable of promoting business success and improving productivity. Businesses hardly need a computer consultant who is trying to earn a commission on a certain vendor's technology. IT consulting and product sales can result in a situation where the proposed solution is built around a profitable product instead of the true needs of a client. Progent eliminates these conflicts of interest by selling just services rather than products. This allows Progent to align IT consulting with the best interests of clients.

How Is Progent Different from Other Support Firms?
Progent is a Microsoft Certified Partner support firm and Progent's staff size, breadth of IT expertise, refined support software, and familiarity with corporate IT enable businesses to escape the limitations associated with excessive dependence on smaller service organizations, individual freelance consultants, or limited in-house resources.
