Affordable Network Support Solutions
Many small organizations rely on flawed metrics when shopping for a computer network consultant. Cost per hour is usually not a good measure for value. A consultant with insufficient technical background can take several times longer to complete the identical job than a seasoned IT professional. As an example, billing a third less per hour, but taking three times longer for the same task is hardly a deal. Even worse, a badly designed or implemented IT environment that is unstable and hard to manage or upgrade can cost an organization many times over its initial price because of lost productivity. Progent's customer testimonials from satisfied businesses across the U.S. indicate the efficiency of Progent's support model and the expertise of Progent's staff of IT professionals.
