Advantages of Progent's IT Support for Companies in Manhattan Beach
Progent's remote IT consulting services allow your Manhattan Beach company to realize the benefits of immediate, enterprise-level network support without the cost of managing an in-house IT staff. Your information system will derive added business worth by being more available, efficient, and protected. Advantages to your business include:

  • Seamless virtual extension of your on-site IT resources
    For most companies in Manhattan Beach and throughout California, nearby computer support resources, whether made up of independent consultants or an in-house IT staff, can take care of typical network problems. However, IT crises sometimes strike when local support personnel are too busy or absent, and some trouble may stem from IT products that is beyond the scope of your usual support personnel. In these cases, Progent's on-call service professionals give you an easy, quick, and economical way to augment your regular resources and to convey valuable information to increase your capability to resolve downstream issues locally.

  • Less Dependence on Freelance Consultants
    For network support, smaller businesses often depend on independent freelance service providers. Although freelance consultants carry smaller internal costs than big support organizations and can often charge lower rates, they are sometimes overbooked, making it difficult to respond rapidly to crisis situations. If a freelance consultant is occupied with another client, sick, on vacation, or in class, the absence of backup help may require your company to go without assistance during an emergency. As your network grows, system downtime and problems with vital applications are more costly. The budget you thought you were saving on a freelancer can be consumed quickly by reduced productivity. Progent provides an on-call source of backup service expertise to insure your IT system is always available.

  • Create a Scalable Basis for Smooth Expansion
    Businesses often start with an information system created on a shoestring budget. Lacking a proper infrastructure, band-aid repairs can get thrown on top of a shaky foundation. When a company grows, stability and expandability problems can impede the productivity of the business. These badly built systems need careful assessment, intelligent strategic planning, and wide IT expertise to evolve to a system architecture that can deliver the stable foundation to meet critical business requirements and facilitate future expansion.

  • Interact with Solution Providers Instead of Product Vendors
    Smaller companies require advice and technical education to navigate through an ever more complicated array of technology options available for accelerating business growth and improving efficiency. These companies do not need a computer consultant who is motivated to earn a commission on a certain vendor's products. Network consulting and product selling can lead to a situation where the recommended solution is designed around a profitable technology instead of the genuine requirements of a client. Progent eliminates these conflicts of interest by offering only services rather than products. This allows Progent to align technical consulting with the real interests of clients.

What Makes Progent Unique from Other Support Firms?
Progent is a Microsoft Partner consulting firm and Progent's number of employees, range of technical experience, fine tuned remote support tools, and familiarity with enterprise networking allow offices to escape the pitfalls associated with excessive reliance on smaller service organizations, independent freelance service providers, or over-stretched in-house resources.
