Benefits of Progent's Network Help for Offices in Oakland California
Progent's remote support services enable your Oakland company to have the benefits of timely, enterprise-grade network support without the expense of managing a full-time IT staff. Your network will derive greater business worth by being increasingly available, efficient, and protected. Advantages to your company include:
- Convenient remote extension of your local support resources
For most offices in Oakland California, local network service providers, whether consisting of independent consultants or an internal maintenance staff, can handle the majority of network problems. However, major troubles might strike when local resources are overstretched or absent, and some problems may stem from IT products that is beyond the scope of your usual support personnel. In these cases, Progent's on-call support specialists give you an easy, quick, and budget-friendly solution to augment your regular resources and to transfer valuable knowledge to increase your capability to deal with downstream issues in-house.
- Less Dependence on Individual Consultants
For network support, smaller businesses commonly depend on individual freelance service providers. While independent consultants carry smaller internal costs than larger consulting firms and can often charge marginally less, they are often overbooked, making it impossible to respond quickly to urgent situations. If a freelance consultant is busy with another customer, ill, on a trip, or in class, the absence of backup personnel may force your company to go without help during an IT crisis. As your company expands, network unavailability and trouble with vital software become more expensive. The money you thought you were saving on an independent can be consumed quickly by reduced productivity. Progent offers an on-call source of reserve service experts to make sure your network remains up and running.
- Create a Solid Basis for Seamless Expansion
Companies typically start with an information architecture created on a shoestring budget. Lacking a proper infrastructure, slap-dash repairs can get thrown on top of an unstable foundation. As a company grows, reliability and scalability problems can hinder the productivity of the organization. These poorly designed systems need careful assessment, intelligent long-term planning, and extensive technical knowledge to evolve to a system architecture able to deliver the solid foundation to handle current business requirements and facilitate downstream expansion.
- Interact with Problem Solvers Instead of Technology Vendors
Smaller organizations require advice and technical training to negotiate an increasingly complicated array of technology options available for promoting business growth and enhancing productivity. They hardly need a network engineer who is trying to sell a certain vendor's technology. IT consulting and product sales can lead to a situation where the proposed
solution is built around a predetermined product instead of the true needs of a client. Progent eliminates these dilemmas by offering just services rather than products. This allows Progent to align technical consulting with the best needs of clients.
How Is Progent Unique from Other Support Firms?
Progent is a Microsoft Certified Partner support firm and Progent's number of employees, depth of IT background, refined remote support tools, and familiarity with corporate IT enable companies to escape the limitations associated with exclusive reliance on smaller consulting organizations, individual freelance service providers, or limited in-house resources.
Progent adds value by providing:
