Advantages of Progent's IT Support for Businesses in San Mateo California
Progent's remote technical help services allow your San Mateo business to enjoy the benefits of on-call, expert network support without the expense of managing a full-time IT staff. Your information system will acquire greater business worth by being more available, productive, and secure. Benefits to your business include:
- Convenient virtual extension of your local IT resources
For most organizations in San Mateo California, local network service resources, whether consisting of freelance consultants or a full-time IT staff, can take care of the majority of technical problems. On the other hand, IT crises can strike when your regular support personnel are too busy or absent, and some problems may involve technology that is beyond the scope of your local service people. In these instances, Progent's on-call service experts give you a convenient, quick, and economical solution to supplement your regular resources and to convey valuable information to improve your capability to resolve future problems locally.
- Less Dependence on Individual Consultants
For network maintenance, smaller companies commonly depend on independent freelance consultants. Although independent consultants carry smaller internal costs than big support firms and can often charge marginally less, they are occasionally overbooked, making it impossible to respond quickly to urgent situations. If an independent service provider is busy with another customer, ill, on a trip, or in training, the lack of reserve personnel may require your company to wait for assistance during an emergency. As your company expands, system unavailability and problems with vital applications become more costly. The budget you thought you were saving on a freelancer can be eaten up fast by reduced productivity. Progent offers a reliable source of backup support expertise to insure your network stays up and running.
- Create a Scalable Foundation for Seamless Growth
Companies typically begin with an IT architecture implemented on a shoestring budget. Without a robust infrastructure, slap-dash fixes often get thrown onto a shaky foundation. When a network grows, stability and scalability problems can impede the productivity of the organization. Such badly built systems require careful analysis, smart long-term planning, and broad-based technical knowledge to evolve to a system infrastructure that can provide the stable foundation to handle current business demands and facilitate future expansion.
- Work with Problem Solvers Instead of Product Sellers
Smaller businesses require guidance and technical education to navigate through an increasingly complex maze of technology options available for promoting business growth and enhancing productivity. They hardly need a computer engineer who is trying to sell a certain vendor's technology. IT support and product selling can result in a scenario where the proposed
solution is built around a predetermined technology rather than the true requirements of a client. Progent avoids these conflicts by selling only services rather than products. This enables Progent to align IT consulting with the real needs of customers.
How Is Progent Different from Other Service Organizations?
Progent is a Microsoft Partner consulting firm and Progent's staff size, breadth of technical knowledge, fine tuned remote support software, and understanding of corporate IT enable businesses to escape the limitations associated with excessive dependence on smaller consulting firms, individual freelance service providers, or limited internal IT help.
Progent stands out by offering:
