Why Progent Offers the Right Choice for Allentown, Pennsylvania Businesses
Progent's staff size, breadth of technical skill, and experience with corporate IT consulting allow small businesses to avoid the problems associated with excessive reliance on thinly staffed service firms or freelance consultants.

Working with Progent's Experts enables your small business to:

  • Avoid Excessive Reliance on Individual Consultants
    For network support, small companies sometimes depend heavily on individual consultants. Though freelance support engineers have lower expenses than more substantial IT service organizations and can typically bill nominally lower rates, individuals are often unable to respond quickly to urgent network problems. If an independent engineer is busy with another client, sick, on vacation, or in class, the absence of replacement personnel may force your business to go without assistance during a crisis. As your small business expands, system downtime or difficulties with line-of-business programs get more costly. The money you believed you were saving on an independent consultant can evaporate fast because of lower productivity. Also, when independent engineers confront unfamiliar technologies, the lack of a large consulting group to fall back on for help forces them to learn in place while your company winds up footing the costs for their continuing education.

  • Gain Access to Expertise in Complex Information Technology Issues
    Many smaller support firms or independent consultants focused on small company IT support may excel at providing routine fixes but lack the seasoning to work cost-effectively with complicated network environments that have mixed operating systems, numerous offices, VoIP systems, mobile clients, interconnected financial and analytical applications, data-driven web sites, and specialized line-of-business applications. Progent's experience with global enterprises and Progent's large group of specialists can be valuable to your small business because enterprise networks are characteristically complicated, support problems demand in-depth knowledge in numerous technical disciplines, and reaching a high level of robustness, reliability, and protection requires industry-tested processes.

  • Create a Firm Foundation for Seamless Growth
    Small businesses often begin with a network implemented on a tight budget. Without a carefully designed architecture, a sequence of band-aid fixes often get thrown onto of a tenuous structure. As a company evolves, stability and scalability problems can obstruct the success of the organization. Such environments need proper evaluation, intelligent strategic planning, and broad-based expertise to migrate to an IT environment that can act as the reliable basis to handle current business needs and support future expansion.

  • Team with Solution Consultants, Not Product Resellers
    Smaller businesses require direction and education to work through an increasingly complicated array of IT alternatives available for accelerating growth and enhancing efficiency. They do not need a network consultant or service organization that tries to sell them products. Progent avoids conflicts of interest by not selling hardware and software. Progent sells services and expertise only. This allows Progent to align technical support services with the real needs of clients. Combining IT consulting and product reselling can lead to a situation where the recommended solution is based on a preselected vendor instead of being driven by the actual needs of a small business.
