Benefits of Progent's IT Support for Businesses in Sherman Oaks
Progent's remote technical help services enable your Sherman Oaks company to experience the advantages of on-call, world-class network support without the cost of managing a full-time IT organization. Your network will derive added strategic value by being more reliable, efficient, and secure. Benefits to your company include:

  • Convenient remote expansion of your on-site IT resources
    With most businesses in Sherman Oaks and throughout California, local computer support resources, whether consisting of outside consultants or an in-house IT staff, can take care of typical network issues. On the other hand, major troubles might occur when local support personnel are too busy or absent, and some trouble may be associated with technology that is unfamiliar to your onsite service personnel. In these cases, Progent's online service experts offer an easy, fast, and budget-friendly solution to supplement your regular help and to convey useful knowledge to increase your ability to handle future issues locally.

  • Less Dependence on Freelance Service Providers
    For network maintenance, smaller businesses often rely on individual freelance service providers. While freelance consultants carry smaller overhead than larger consulting firms and can often charge marginally less, they are sometimes overbooked, making it hard to respond rapidly to urgent situations. If a freelance consultant is occupied with another client, ill, on vacation, or in class, the lack of fallback personnel may force your company to go without help during an emergency. As your business expands, network downtime and trouble with vital applications become more costly. The budget you thought you were saving on a freelancer can be consumed quickly by lost productivity. Progent offers a dependable source of backup service expertise to make sure your network remains up and running.

  • Build a Scalable Foundation for Seamless Expansion
    Organizations typically start with an information architecture created on a shoestring budget. Lacking a strong framework, slap-dash fixes can get piled onto an unstable foundation. When a company grows, reliability and expandability problems can hinder the productivity of the organization. These poorly built systems require proper assessment, intelligent strategic planning, and broad-based IT knowledge to evolve to a system architecture that can offer the solid foundation to handle critical business demands and facilitate future expansion.

  • Work with Problem Solvers Instead of Technology Vendors
    Smaller organizations require guidance and technical training to negotiate an ever more complex array of product alternatives capable of accelerating business growth and enhancing efficiency. They do not need a network engineer who is attempting to sell a certain vendor's technology. Network support and product selling can result in a situation where the recommended solution is built around a predetermined technology rather than the genuine requirements of a client. Progent eliminates these conflicts by offering only services rather than products. This allows Progent to align technical consulting with the best needs of customers.

How Is Progent Unique from Other Service Organizations?
Progent is a Microsoft Partner support company and Progent's head count, range of technical knowledge, fine tuned remote support tools, and familiarity with corporate IT enable offices to escape the limitations of exclusive dependence on smaller consulting firms, independent freelance consultants, or over-stretched internal resources.
