Benefits of Progent's IT Support for Organizations in Sherman Oaks
Progent's online support services enable your Sherman Oaks business to experience the benefits of immediate, enterprise-level IT support without the expense of maintaining an in-house IT organization. Your information system will acquire greater business worth by becoming more available, efficient, and protected. Benefits to your company include:

  • Seamless remote extension of your on-site IT resources
    With most offices in Sherman Oaks or anywhere in California, local computer support providers, whether represented by freelance consultants or an in-house maintenance staff, can deal with the majority of network problems. On the other hand, IT crises may occur when local support personnel are too busy or unavailable, and some problems may be associated with technology that is unfamiliar to your usual service technicians. In these situations, Progent's on-call service specialists offer an easy, fast, and affordable way to augment your local resources and to pass on valuable knowledge to improve your ability to resolve future problems in-house.

  • Less Dependence on Individual Consultants
    For IT support, smaller companies commonly rely on independent freelance consultants. While independent service people have less internal costs than larger service firms and can afford to charge marginally less, they are sometimes stretched too thin, making it difficult to respond rapidly to urgent situations. If an independent consultant is busy with another customer, ill, on a trip, or in class, the absence of reserve personnel may require your business to wait for help during an emergency. As your network grows, system downtime and problems with critical software are more expensive. The budget you thought you were saving on an independent can be consumed fast by reduced productivity. Progent offers a reliable source of backup service expertise to make sure your network is always available.

  • Build a Solid Foundation for Seamless Growth
    Organizations often begin with an information system created on a modest budget. Without a proper framework, band-aid fixes often get piled on top of a weak foundation. As a company grows, stability and expandability problems can hinder the productivity of the organization. These badly built environments require proper analysis, smart long-term planning, and broad-based technical knowledge to evolve to a system architecture that can offer the solid foundation to meet current business demands and simplify downstream expansion.

  • Interact with Problem Solvers Instead of Technology Resellers
    Smaller organizations need guidance and technical training to negotiate an increasingly complex array of product options capable of promoting business success and enhancing efficiency. These companies hardly need a computer consultant who is attempting to sell a specific vendor's products. IT consulting and product selling can lead to a scenario where the recommended solution is built around a profitable product rather than the true requirements of a business. Progent avoids these conflicts by selling just services instead of products. This allows Progent to match IT expertise with the best needs of clients.

What Makes Progent Different from Other Service Firms?
Progent is a Microsoft Partner support firm and Progent's number of employees, depth of IT knowledge, fine tuned support software, and understanding of enterprise networking allow offices to escape the pitfalls of excessive dependence on smaller service organizations, individual freelance service providers, or over-stretched in-house resources.

Progent adds value by offering:

  • Value Pricing
    Progent's pricing model is to bill for online service and on-site help per minute. As a result, you are charged just for delivered services. Progent does not impose a more expensive rate for off-hours or emergency support, and inside California or in regions where Progent offers on-site service, Progent does not charge for travel time except for urgent support where on-site time is less than four hours. Also, Progent applies no service activation charge and requires no retainer for support services delivered during regular business hours. Many service organizations impose substantial minimum payments or charge for every fifteen minutes or longer. Progent's one-minute granularity eliminates big invoices for quick solutions so you won't be forced to allow minor problems to fester.

  • Complete Records of IT Services
    Progent has created a comprehensive support reporting system that records and formats detailed documentation for all delivered support activities. Unlike many freelance consultants or local service firms who provide scant documentation or specifics of services performed, each service provided by Progent is accompanied by comprehensive documentation. Each Progent consultant has use of the service reports transmitted by each consultant to every customer. The discipline of documenting and organizing support records allows more effective service and eliminates a slew of common problems such as when a service client is virtually held captive to a consultant who refuses to release the keys to the kingdom.

  • Automated Network Monitoring with MS System Center Operations Manager
    Progent is one of the only IT service companies to offer round-the-clock system tracking services based on MS Operations Manager. MS Operations Manager causes your network maintenance to be proactive instead of reactive. By uncovering potential problems before they result in downtime, system monitoring can keep your IT network from painful and costly availability disruptions.
