Why Progent Is the Smart Alternative for Allentown, Pennsylvania Businesses
Progent's size, breadth and depth of technical expertise, and familiarity with enterprise IT consulting enable small and midsize businesses to avoid the problems associated with excessive dependence on thinly staffed service firms or independent engineers.

Working with Progent allows your business to:

  • Avoid Over Reliance on Individual Consultants
    For network services, small businesses often rely excessively on individual consultants. Although individual support engineers carry lower overhead than more substantial support firms and can afford to bill nominally smaller rates, individuals are sometimes stretched to far to respond rapidly to critical problems. If a freelance engineer is occupied with different client, ill, on vacation, or in training, the lack of replacement staff may require your business to go without assistance during a crisis. As your small business grows, system downtime or difficulties with line-of-business programs become more expensive. The dollars you thought you were saving on a freelancer can disappear fast due to lower output. Also, when independent engineers encounter unfamiliar problems, the unavailability of a large consulting team to count on for help requires them to learn with the meter running while your business winds up footing the bill for their continuing training.

  • Gain Access to Experts in Complex IT Issues
    The majority of small service firms or independent engineers focused on small company network support are capable of providing routine fixes but don't have the seasoning to work efficiently with complex IT configurations that have mixed operating systems, numerous sites, VoIP implementations, remote clients, interconnected accounting and operational applications, eCommerce, and custom line-of-business software. Progent's background with worldwide enterprises and Progent's large staff of experts can be valuable to your business because big-company networks are by nature complex, support issues demand in-depth knowledge in numerous technical areas, and reaching an acceptable level of robustness, reliability, and protection requires industry-proven leading practices.

  • Create a Firm Basis for Seamless Growth
    Small companies typically begin with an IT system cobbled together on a tight budget. Without a strong architecture, a series of ad hoc fixes commonly get piled onto of a marginal structure. As a business grows, stability and expandability issues can undermine the success of the organization. These environments need proper evaluation, intelligent business planning, and in-depth experience to migrate to an IT infrastructure that will provide the solid basis to meet current business requirements and ease downstream growth.

  • Partner with Solution Finders, Not Resellers
    Smaller companies need guidance and education to navigate through an ever more complicated array of IT options available for enabling business growth and improving efficiency. Businesses do not need an IT engineer or support organization that tries to promote a product. Progent avoids conflicted motives by not reselling any products. Progent offers consulting and services only. This permits Progent to match technical support with the real needs of customers. Combining IT consulting and product reselling can lead to a conflict where the recommended solution is based on a predetermined technology instead of being based on the actual needs of a customer.
