Benefits of Progent's IT Support for Companies in Sherman Oaks
Progent's remote network troubleshooting services allow your Sherman Oaks organization to realize the advantages of timely, enterprise-level IT support without the cost of maintaining a full-time IT organization. Your information system will derive added strategic worth by becoming more available, productive, and secure. Advantages to your business include:
- Seamless remote extension of your on-site IT resources
For most organizations in Sherman Oaks and throughout California, nearby computer service providers, whether made up of independent consultants or an in-house IT staff, can handle the majority of network issues. On the other hand, serious problems can occur when your regular support personnel are overstretched or absent, and some problems may involve IT products that is beyond the scope of your usual support people. In these cases, Progent's online support experts offer an easy, fast, and economical solution to supplement your regular resources and to pass on valuable knowledge to increase your capability to resolve future issues in-house.
- Less Dependence on Individual Consultants
For network maintenance, smaller companies commonly rely on individual freelance service providers. Although independent service people have smaller overhead than larger consulting companies and can often charge lower rates, they are occasionally overextended, making it impossible to respond rapidly to crisis situations. If an independent service provider is occupied with another customer, sick, on vacation, or in class, the absence of backup personnel may require your business to go without help during an emergency. As your company expands, network downtime and problems with critical applications are more costly. The budget you thought you were saving on a freelancer can be consumed fast by lost productivity. Progent provides an on-call source of backup support expertise to insure your IT system stays available.
- Create a Solid Foundation for Smooth Expansion
Companies often start with an information architecture created on a modest budget. Without a proper framework, slap-dash repairs often get piled on top of a weak foundation. When a network grows, reliability and expandability issues can hinder the productivity of the business. Such badly built environments require proper analysis, intelligent long-term planning, and wide IT expertise to evolve to a system architecture able to provide the stable foundation to meet current business requirements and ease downstream growth.
- Interact with Problem Solvers Rather Than Technology Sellers
Smaller businesses require advice and technical education to navigate through an increasingly complicated maze of technology options available for accelerating business growth and improving efficiency. They do not need a computer engineer who is trying to earn a commission on a certain vendor's technology. IT support and product selling can lead to a scenario where the proposed
solution is built around a predetermined technology instead of the true requirements of a client. Progent avoids these dilemmas by offering just services instead of products. This enables Progent to align IT consulting with the best needs of clients.
How Is Progent Unique from Other Support Organizations?
Progent is a Microsoft Certified Partner consulting company and Progent's number of employees, breadth of technical experience, fine tuned remote support tools, and understanding of corporate IT enable businesses to avoid the limitations associated with exclusive dependence on smaller service organizations, independent freelance service providers, or limited in-house IT help.
Progent stands out by offering:

Unlike many freelance consultants or local support firms who offer minimal documentation or specifics of services performed, each service provided by Progent is accompanied by full documentation. Each Progent consultant has access to the service reports sent by each staff member to each customer. The practice of detailing and organizing support records results in more effective support and avoids a variety of typical problems such as when a support client is virtually held captive to a consultant who refuses to let go of the keys to the kingdom.
- Remote Server Monitoring with MS Operations Manager
Progent is one of the only support companies to offer round-the-clock remote monitoring services based on MS Operations Manager. Microsoft Operations Manager causes your network maintenance to be anticipatory rather than reactive.
