Expert Remote Service for Concord, California Computer Networks from Certified Consultants
Small companies have traditionally been ignored by large IT service firms. Many small businesses permit themselves to grow excessively reliant on freelance consultants or small consulting firms who lack the size or broad skill sets to react quickly or efficiently to network crises. Other small businesses turn to mass-market service providers that employ technicians taught to offer by-the-numbers fixes for common problems but who are missing the background and technical scope to handle the diversity of environments and absence of standards typical of small business information systems.

Why Progent Is the Right Choice for Concord, California Small Businesses
Progent's staff size, breadth and depth of technical expertise, and familiarity with enterprise network consulting allow small companies to sidestep the problems related to excessive reliance on small support firms or independent consultants.

Teaming with Progent allows your small business to:

  • Avoid Excessive Reliance on Individual Support Consultants
    For IT support, smaller businesses sometimes depend heavily on independent consultants. Though freelance service engineers carry lower expenses than more substantial support organizations and can afford to charge nominally lower fees, individuals are frequently unable to react quickly to critical problems. If a freelance engineer is occupied with another customer, ill, on vacation, or in training, the absence of backup personnel may force your business to go without help during a crisis. As your company expands, system downtime or problems with line-of-business applications become more costly. The money you thought you were saving on an independent consultant can be eaten up quickly because of lost productivity. In addition, when freelance consultants confront unfamiliar technologies, the unavailability of a big engineering team to depend on for advice requires them to train on the job while your organization winds up with the costs for their continuing training.

  • Have Access to Expertise in Complex Information Technology Solutions
    Many small service firms or freelance consultants focused on small business IT consulting are capable of providing routine fixes but lack the seasoning to work cost-effectively with complicated network infrastructures that have a variety of platforms, many locations, Voice over IP systems, mobile workers, integrated financial and operational software, data-driven web sites, and specialized line-of-business software. Progent's background with worldwide enterprises and Progent's extensive staff of specialists can benefit your small business because big-company environments are inherently complex, support problems demand in-depth knowledge in numerous technical areas, and achieving a high level of stability, availability, and security requires enterprise-tested processes.

  • Build a Firm Basis for Seamless Growth
    Small companies often begin with a network implemented on a tight budget. Lacking a strong basis, a series of ad hoc fixes commonly get tossed on top of a weak structure. As a company evolves, reliability and scalability problems can undermine the success of the organization. Such environments need thorough assessment, smart strategic analysis, and broad-based experience to upgrade to a network infrastructure that will provide the solid basis to handle current business requirements and ease future growth.

  • Team with Solution Providers, Not Resellers
    Small businesses require guidance and insight to navigate through an increasingly complicated array of technology options available for enabling growth and improving productivity. They do not need an IT engineer or service organization that attempts to sell them a product. Progent avoids conflicted motives by not reselling hardware and software. Progent offers consulting and services only. This allows Progent to align consulting support with the real needs of customers. Combining IT support and product reselling can lead to a situation where the proposed solution is based on a predetermined vendor rather than being driven by the actual needs of a client.
