Benefits of Progent's IT Support for Organizations in Santa Monica
Progent's remote technical help services allow your Santa Monica organization to realize the advantages of on-call, world-class network support without the cost of managing an in-house IT organization. Your information system will derive greater business worth by becoming more reliable, productive, and protected. Advantages to your business include:

  • Seamless virtual extension of your local support resources
    For most organizations in Santa Monica and throughout California, nearby computer support providers, whether consisting of independent consultants or an internal maintenance staff, can resolve typical technical issues. On the other hand, IT crises may strike when local resources are overstretched or unavailable, and some problems may be associated with technology that is unfamiliar to your usual support technicians. In these cases, Progent's online service specialists offer an easy, quick, and budget-friendly way to augment your local help and to pass on valuable information to improve your capability to handle downstream problems in-house.

  • Less Dependence on Freelance Service Providers
    For network support, smaller businesses often rely on independent freelance service providers. While independent service people carry smaller overhead than larger service organizations and can often charge marginally less, they are often overextended, making it impossible to respond quickly to urgent situations. If an independent consultant is occupied with another client, ill, on a trip, or in class, the lack of reserve help may force your business to wait for help during an emergency. As your company expands, network unavailability and problems with critical applications are more costly. The budget you thought you were conserving on an independent can be consumed fast by reduced productivity. Progent provides an on-call source of backup support expertise to make sure your network remains up and running.

  • Create a Scalable Foundation for Seamless Growth
    Businesses typically begin with an information architecture created on a modest budget. Without a strong framework, band-aid fixes often get piled on top of an unstable foundation. When a company grows, reliability and scalability problems can impede the productivity of the business. These poorly built systems need careful analysis, smart strategic planning, and broad-based technical knowledge to upgrade to a system infrastructure that can offer the solid foundation to handle vital business demands and ease future expansion.

  • Interact with Problem Solvers Rather Than Product Resellers
    Smaller companies require advice and technical training to navigate through an ever more complex maze of product alternatives capable of accelerating business growth and improving productivity. These companies hardly need a network engineer who is motivated to resell a specific vendor's products. Network support and product selling can lead to a situation where the recommended solution is built around a predetermined technology rather than the genuine requirements of a client. Progent eliminates these conflicts of interest by selling just services instead of products. This allows Progent to match IT expertise with the best interests of customers.

What Makes Progent Unique from Other Support Organizations?
Progent is a Microsoft Partner consulting firm and Progent's head count, breadth of technical background, fine tuned remote support software, and familiarity with corporate IT enable companies to avoid the limitations associated with exclusive reliance on smaller service organizations, independent freelance service providers, or over-stretched in-house IT help.

Many service organizations impose substantial minimum fees or charge for each quarter hour or longer. Progent's fine granularity does away with large invoices for fast repairs so you won't be tempted to permit minor problems to fester.

  • Complete Documentation of Delivered Services
    Progent has created a comprehensive support reporting system that records and organizes detailed documentation for all billed services. Unlike many freelance consultants or small support organizations who provide minimal documentation or specifics of services done, every service provided by Progent is accompanied by full documentation. Every Progent staff member has access to the service reports transmitted by each staff member to each customer. The practice of detailing and archiving service records results in more effective service and avoids a variety of typical problems such as when a support customer is effectively held captive to a consultant who wonít release the keys to the kingdom.

  • Automated Network Monitoring with Microsoft Operations Manager
    Progent is one of the few support firms to provide round-the-clock remote monitoring services based on MS Operations Manager. MS Operations Manager causes your computer support to be anticipatory instead of reactive.
