Advantages of Progent's IT Support for Businesses in Walnut Creek California
Progent's remote network troubleshooting services allow your Walnut Creek organization to have the benefits of timely, expert network support without the cost of managing a full-time IT organization. Your network will acquire added business value by becoming more available, productive, and protected. Benefits to your business include:
- Convenient remote extension of your local IT resources
With most offices in Walnut Creek California, local network support providers, whether represented by freelance consultants or an in-house IT staff, can take care of the majority of network problems. However, major troubles sometimes occur when your regular support personnel are too busy or absent, and some trouble may stem from technology that is beyond the scope of your onsite service technicians. In these situations, Progent's on-call service experts give you a convenient, quick, and economical way to augment your local help and to pass on valuable information to improve your ability to resolve downstream problems locally.
- Less Dependence on Freelance Service Providers
For IT maintenance, smaller companies commonly depend on individual freelance consultants. Although freelance service people carry smaller internal costs than larger consulting firms and can often charge lower rates, they are sometimes overbooked, making it difficult to respond quickly to urgent situations. If an independent service provider is busy with another customer, sick, on vacation, or in training, the lack of reserve help may require your business to wait for assistance during an IT crisis. As your network expands, network downtime and problems with vital applications are more costly. The money you thought you were saving on a freelancer can be eaten up fast by lost productivity. Progent offers a reliable source of backup support expertise to insure your IT system remains up and running.
- Create a Solid Basis for Seamless Expansion
Organizations typically begin with an information system created on a modest budget. Lacking a scalable framework, slap-dash fixes often get thrown onto a weak foundation. As a network grows, reliability and expandability problems can impede the success of the business. These badly built systems require proper analysis, intelligent strategic planning, and broad-based IT expertise to evolve to a network infrastructure that can provide the solid foundation to handle current business requirements and facilitate downstream growth.
- Interact with Solution Providers Rather Than Technology Vendors
Smaller companies need advice and technical education to negotiate an increasingly complex array of product alternatives available for accelerating business success and improving efficiency. Businesses hardly need a computer consultant who is trying to sell a certain vendor's technology. IT consulting and product selling can lead to a situation where the recommended
solution is designed around a predetermined product rather than the genuine needs of a client. Progent avoids these dilemmas by offering just services rather than products. This enables Progent to match technical expertise with the real interests of clients.
What Makes Progent Different from Other Support Organizations?
Progent is a Microsoft Certified Partner support company and Progent's number of employees, range of IT background, refined support software, and familiarity with enterprise networking allow companies to escape the limitations of exclusive dependence on smaller service firms, individual freelance service providers, or over-stretched internal resources.
Progent adds value by providing:
