Benefits of Progent's Network Help for Companies in Ontario California
Progent's remote network troubleshooting services enable your Ontario business to have the benefits of on-call, world-class network support without the expense of managing a full-time IT staff. Your network will derive added business worth by becoming increasingly available, efficient, and protected. Advantages to your company include:
- Convenient remote extension of your local IT resources
With most companies in Ontario California, nearby network service resources, whether made up of outside consultants or a full-time IT staff, can resolve the majority of network problems. However, serious problems can strike when local support personnel are overstretched or unavailable, and some problems may involve IT products that is unfamiliar to your onsite support people. In these instances, Progent's online support specialists give you an easy, fast, and affordable way to supplement your local resources and to pass on valuable knowledge to improve your ability to resolve future problems in-house.
- Reduced Dependence on Freelance Service Providers
For network support, smaller organizations often depend on independent freelance service providers. Although freelance consultants carry smaller internal costs than larger service organizations and can afford to charge lower rates, they are often overextended, making it impossible to respond quickly to crisis situations. If an independent consultant is busy with another client, sick, on a trip, or in training, the absence of backup help may require your business to go without assistance during an IT crisis. As your company grows, network downtime and trouble with critical software become more expensive. The budget you thought you were saving on an independent can be consumed fast by reduced productivity. Progent provides a reliable source of reserve support experts to make sure your IT system stays up and running.
- Create a Solid Basis for Smooth Expansion
Businesses often start with an IT architecture created on a shoestring budget. Lacking a robust infrastructure, band-aid fixes often get piled onto a shaky foundation. When a company grows, reliability and expandability problems can impede the success of the business. These poorly designed systems need careful analysis, intelligent strategic planning, and wide technical knowledge to upgrade to a network infrastructure that can deliver the solid foundation to meet vital business demands and facilitate future expansion.
- Work with Problem Solvers Instead of Product Resellers
Smaller organizations need advice and technical training to navigate through an ever more complicated maze of technology alternatives capable of accelerating business growth and improving productivity. Businesses do not need a network consultant who is motivated to earn a commission on a specific vendor's technology. Network consulting and product selling can lead to a scenario where the proposed
solution is designed around a profitable product instead of the genuine needs of a business. Progent avoids these conflicts of interest by selling only services instead of products. This allows Progent to align technical expertise with the real interests of clients.
How Is Progent Unique from Other Service Organizations?
Progent is a Microsoft Partner consulting company and Progent's head count, range of IT background, fine tuned support software, and understanding of enterprise networking enable businesses to avoid the pitfalls of excessive dependence on smaller consulting organizations, individual freelance consultants, or over-stretched in-house IT help.
Progent stands out by offering:

The discipline of documenting and organizing service records allows more effective support and avoids a slew of typical problems such as when a support client is effectively held captive to a consultant who refuses to let go of the keys to the kingdom.
- Automated Server Monitoring with Microsoft Operations Manager
Progent is one of the only support firms to provide round-the-clock remote tracking services based on MS Operations Manager.
