Benefits of Progent's IT Support for Offices in Santa Rosa California
Progent's online support services allow your Santa Rosa business to enjoy the benefits of timely, enterprise-class IT support without the cost of managing an in-house IT staff. Your network will acquire greater business value by becoming increasingly available, productive, and secure. Advantages to your business include:
- Seamless remote expansion of your on-site support resources
With most offices in Santa Rosa California, local network service resources, whether made up of freelance consultants or an internal maintenance staff, can resolve the majority of network problems. However, serious problems can strike when local support personnel are too busy or unavailable, and some problems may stem from technology that is beyond the scope of your onsite support personnel. In these instances, Progent's on-call support professionals offer an easy, quick, and economical solution to supplement your local resources and to convey valuable information to improve your ability to deal with future problems locally.
- Less Dependence on Freelance Service Providers
For IT support, smaller businesses commonly rely on individual freelance service providers. Although independent consultants have smaller internal costs than big support companies and can often charge lower rates, they are occasionally stretched too thin, making it impossible to respond quickly to urgent situations. If a freelance service provider is busy with another client, sick, on a trip, or in training, the lack of fallback help may force your business to go without assistance during an IT crisis. As your business expands, system downtime and problems with vital applications become more expensive. The budget you thought you were saving on an independent can be consumed quickly by lost productivity. Progent provides a dependable source of reserve support experts to make sure your network is always available.
- Create a Solid Basis for Seamless Growth
Companies typically start with an IT system implemented on a shoestring budget. Lacking a robust framework, band-aid repairs can get thrown on top of a shaky foundation. As a network grows, stability and expandability problems can hinder the productivity of the business. Such poorly built environments need proper analysis, smart strategic planning, and wide technical knowledge to evolve to a system architecture that can deliver the stable foundation to meet critical business demands and facilitate future growth.
- Work with Solution Providers Instead of Product Resellers
Smaller organizations require guidance and technical education to negotiate an ever more complex maze of technology alternatives capable of promoting business growth and improving productivity. These companies hardly need a network consultant who is attempting to earn a commission on a certain vendor's products. IT consulting and product sales can lead to a scenario where the proposed
solution is built around a predetermined technology instead of the genuine requirements of a business. Progent eliminates these conflicts by offering just services rather than products. This allows Progent to align IT expertise with the real needs of customers.
How Is Progent Unique from Other Service Firms?
Progent is a Microsoft Certified Partner consulting firm and Progent's staff size, breadth of technical expertise, refined remote support tools, and understanding of enterprise networking allow companies to escape the limitations of excessive reliance on smaller consulting organizations, individual freelance consultants, or over-stretched in-house resources.
Progent stands out by offering:
How Does My Business Start Getting Remote Network Help from Progent?
- Best Practices
Progentís team of Microsoft and Cisco Premier Certified consultants average more than ten years of hands-on professional experience, at the forefront of network service, performing a broad variety of technical tasks for an extensive mix of customers. Every Progent support professional shares a proven collection of personal best practices which are combined into company-wide leading practices training that Progent teaches its consulting staff. This guarantees that you get not only world-class IT help, but also a support engineer with field-tested approaches for applying technical knowledge to repair real-world IT problems efficiently.
- Value Pricing
Progent's pricing model is to charge for remote service and on-site visits by the minute. Consequently, you are billed only for delivered support. Progent does not impose a higher rate for after-hours or urgent support, and inside California or in regions where Progent provides in-person support, Progent does not charge for travel time except for emergency support where on-site time is less than 4 hours. In addition, Progent imposes no minimum fee and requires no retainer for support services delivered during regular business hours. Many service firms demand substantial minimum fees or charge for every fifteen minutes or longer. Progent's one-minute granularity avoids large invoices for fast repairs so you will not be forced to permit minor problems to stay unaddressed.
- Full Documentation of Delivered Services
Progent has created a comprehensive support reporting system that records and formats detailed documentation for all delivered support activities. Unlike some independent consultants or local support firms who provide minimal documentation or details of tasks performed, each service provided by Progent is tracked by full documentation. Each Progent consultant has access to the service documentation transmitted by each consultant to every customer. The discipline of documenting and archiving support activity results in more efficient support and avoids a slew of common problems such as when a support customer is effectively held captive to a consultant who refuses to release the keys to the kingdom.
- Automated Network Monitoring with Microsoft Operations Manager
Progent is one of the only consulting companies to offer round-the-clock network monitoring services powered by MS System Center Operations Manager. MS System Center Operations Manager allows your computer support to be anticipatory instead of reactive. By uncovering potential issues before they result in lost productivity, system monitoring can keep your IT network from stressful and costly service losses.
