Why Progent Offers the Right Choice for Clearwater, Florida Businesses
Progent's size, depth of technical skill, and experience with enterprise IT support enable small businesses to sidestep the problems related to over dependence on small service organizations or individual engineers.

Working with Progent allows your small business to:

  • Prevent Excessive Dependence on Freelance Support Consultants
    For network support, small businesses sometimes depend excessively on independent engineers. Though individual service providers carry lower overhead than more substantial support firms and can typically bill nominally smaller rates, individuals are often stretched to far to react quickly to urgent problems. If a freelance consultant is busy with different client, ill, on vacation, or in training, the lack of backup personnel may require your company to go without assistance during an emergency. The more your company expands, network downtime or difficulties with critical programs become more expensive. The money you believed you were saving on an independent consultant can disappear quickly due to lower output. Also, when freelance engineers encounter new technologies, the lack of a big consulting team to fall back on for help forces them to learn in place while your company ends up footing the costs for their continuing training.

  • Have Access to Certified Professionals in Complex Information Technology Solutions
    Many small service organizations or freelance consultants who concentrate on small company network consulting may excel at providing routine fixes but don't have the experience to deal cost-effectively with complicated IT infrastructures with a variety of platforms, many sites, Voice over IP implementations, remote workforces, integrated financial and operational software, data-driven web sites, and custom business applications. Progent's experience with worldwide companies and Progent's large group of experts can be valuable to your small business because big-company networks are by nature complicated, support problems require in-depth understanding of in numerous technical areas, and reaching an acceptable degree of robustness, reliability, and protection calls for enterprise-tested leading practices.

  • Build a Solid Basis for Seamless Growth
    Small companies often begin with an IT system cobbled together on a shoestring budget. Without a carefully designed basis, a sequence of band-aid fixes often get tossed onto of a tenuous structure. As a business evolves, stability and scalability issues can obstruct the success of the organization. Such networks require thorough assessment, intelligent strategic planning, and broad-based expertise to migrate to a network environment that will act as the solid foundation to handle current business needs and support future growth.

  • Team with Solution Consultants, Not Resellers
    Smaller businesses require guidance and insight to navigate through an ever more complicated maze of IT options available for accelerating business growth and improving efficiency. Businesses do not need an IT engineer or support organization that tries to promote a product. Progent avoids conflicts of interest by not selling hardware and software. Progent offers services and expertise only. This allows Progent to align consulting services with the genuine needs of customers. Mixing network support and product reselling can lead to a situation where the proposed solution is based on a preselected vendor instead of being driven by the true requirements of a small business.
