Why Progent Offers the Smart Choice for Berkeley, California Businesses
Progent's size, scope of information technology expertise, and familiarity with corporate network support allow small and midsize companies to sidestep the pitfalls related to excessive reliance on thinly staffed support firms or independent consultants.

Teaming with Progent allows your company to:

  • Prevent Over Reliance on Individual Consultants
    For network services, small companies often rely excessively on independent consultants. Although individual service engineers carry lower expenses than larger support firms and can typically charge apparently lower fees, they are often too busy to react quickly to urgent network problems. If a freelance consultant is busy with different customer, ill, on travelling, or in training, the lack of backup personnel may require your business to go without help during a crisis. The more your small business expands, system downtime or problems with line-of-business programs get more expensive. The dollars you thought you were conserving on a freelancer can be eaten up fast because of lost output. In addition, when independent engineers encounter new problems, the unavailability of a large consulting group to depend on for advice requires them to train in place while your company winds up footing the costs for their continuing education.

  • Have Access to Experts in Complex Information Technology Issues
    Many smaller service firms or freelance consultants specializing in small company network consulting are capable of providing routine solutions but don't have the seasoning to deal efficiently with complicated network infrastructures with mixed operating systems, numerous sites, Voice over IP implementations, remote workforces, interconnected accounting and operational software, data-driven web sites, and specialized line-of-business applications. Progent's background with worldwide enterprises and Progent's extensive staff of experts can benefit your company because big-company environments are by nature complicated, support problems demand thorough understanding of in numerous technical areas, and achieving a high level of robustness, reliability, and security requires enterprise-tested leading practices.

  • Create a Firm Basis for Growth
    Small businesses typically start with an IT system cobbled together on a tight budget. Lacking a proper architecture, a series of band-aid repairs commonly get thrown on top of a weak foundation. As a business grows, reliability and scalability problems can undermine the productivity of the organization. Such environments need thorough assessment, smart business analysis, and in-depth experience to migrate to a network environment that can provide the reliable basis to meet critical business needs and support future expansion.

  • Partner with Solution Consultants, Not Product Resellers
    Small companies need guidance and education to navigate through an ever more complicated maze of IT alternatives available for enabling growth and enhancing productivity. They do not need an IT consultant or service firm that attempts to promote products. Progent avoids conflicted motives by not selling hardware and software. Progent offers services only. This allows Progent to align technical support with the real interests of customers. Combining IT support and product selling can lead to a situation where the proposed solution is based on a predetermined technology rather than being based on the true needs of a small business.
