Benefits of Progent's Network Help for Businesses in Riverside
Progent's remote network troubleshooting services allow your Riverside organization to realize the advantages of on-call, enterprise-level IT support without the expense of maintaining an in-house IT staff. Your information system will acquire added strategic value by being increasingly reliable, productive, and protected. Advantages to your business include:

  • Seamless remote expansion of your local IT resources
    With most organizations in Riverside and throughout California, local computer service resources, whether consisting of freelance consultants or an in-house IT staff, can solve typical network issues. However, serious problems sometimes spring up when local support personnel are overstretched or unavailable, and some problems may be associated with technology that is unfamiliar to your onsite support people. In these instances, Progent's on-call support professionals give you an easy, fast, and economical way to augment your regular resources and to convey useful knowledge to increase your ability to deal with future issues locally.

  • Reduced Dependence on Individual Consultants
    For network maintenance, smaller offices commonly rely on independent freelance service providers. Although independent consultants have less overhead than larger support companies and can often charge marginally less, they are occasionally overextended, making it impossible to respond rapidly to urgent situations. If an independent service provider is busy with another client, ill, on vacation, or in training, the absence of fallback help may force your company to wait for help during an emergency. As your network expands, network unavailability and trouble with vital applications become more expensive. The budget you thought you were conserving on an independent can be consumed fast by lost productivity. Progent offers a ready source of backup support expertise to make sure your network remains up and running.

  • Create a Solid Foundation for Smooth Expansion
    Companies typically begin with an IT system created on a shoestring budget. Without a robust infrastructure, band-aid repairs often get piled on top of a weak foundation. As a company grows, stability and expandability problems can impede the productivity of the business. These poorly built systems need careful assessment, smart long-term planning, and extensive technical knowledge to evolve to a network architecture able to deliver the solid foundation to meet vital business requirements and simplify future growth.

  • Work with Solution Providers Rather Than Product Resellers
    Smaller organizations need guidance and technical education to navigate through an ever more complicated array of product alternatives capable of promoting business success and improving efficiency. These companies hardly need a network consultant who is attempting to resell a certain vendor's technology. IT consulting and product selling can lead to a scenario where the recommended solution is built around a predetermined product instead of the true needs of a business. Progent avoids these conflicts of interest by offering only services instead of products. This allows Progent to match IT expertise with the real needs of clients.

What Makes Progent Unique from Other Support Organizations?
Progent is a Microsoft Partner support company and Progent's head count, range of technical knowledge, refined remote support software, and familiarity with enterprise networking enable businesses to avoid the pitfalls of exclusive dependence on smaller service firms, individual freelance service providers, or over-stretched internal resources.

Progent adds value by providing:

  • Best Practices
    Progentís team of Microsoft and Cisco Certified consultants average longer than a decade of real-world professional experience, at the front lines of IT support, performing a broad range of technical tasks for a large mix of customers. Every Progent support professional shares a proven collection of personal best practices which are incorporated into company-wide best practices standards that Progent instills in its consulting personnel. This ensures that you get not only expert IT skills, but also a consultant with proven approaches for using technical knowledge to fix actual network problems efficiently.

  • Value Pricing
    Progent's pricing model is to bill for phone service and on-premises help by the minute. As a result, you are invoiced exclusively for delivered support. Progent does not impose a more expensive rate for after-hours or priority service, and inside California or in regions where Progent offers in-person service, Progent does not charge for travel time except for emergency support where on-site time is less than four hours. In addition, Progent applies no service activation fee and requires no retainer for services delivered during regular business hours. Many service firms impose large minimum payments or charge for each quarter hour or longer. Progent's one-minute granularity avoids large bills for quick fixes so you will not be forced to permit simple problems to stay unaddressed.

  • Complete Records of IT Services
    Progent has created a comprehensive service reporting system that stores and formats complete documentation for all delivered services. Unlike some freelance consultants or local service firms who provide minimal documentation or details of tasks performed, each service delivered by Progent is tracked by comprehensive documentation. Each Progent staff member has access to the support documentation sent by each staff member to every customer. The discipline of documenting and archiving support activity results in more effective service and eliminates a variety of common problems such as when a service client is effectively held captive to a consultant who refuses to release vital service information.

  • 24x7 Server Monitoring with MS Operations Manager
    Progent is one of the only consulting firms to provide round-the-clock system monitoring services based on Microsoft Operations Manager. MS Operations Manager allows your network support to be proactive instead of reactive. By anticipating possible issues before they result in downtime, network monitoring can save your IT network from stressful and costly service losses.
