Why Progent Is the Smart Choice for Lansing, Michigan Businesses
Progent's size, breadth and depth of information technology expertise, and experience with enterprise network consulting enable small and midsize businesses to avoid the pitfalls associated with over reliance on thinly staffed service organizations or independent consultants.

Teaming with Progent's Experts allows your business to:

  • Prevent Over Dependence on Individual Consultants
    For network services, smaller companies often depend heavily on independent consultants. Although freelance service providers carry lower expenses than more substantial support firms and can afford to charge nominally smaller rates, individuals are frequently spread too thin to respond rapidly to urgent problems. If an independent consultant is occupied with another customer, sick, on travelling, or in training, the lack of backup staff may force your business to wait for assistance during a crisis. As your small business grows, network downtime or difficulties with critical programs become more costly. The money you believed you were saving on an independent consultant can disappear quickly because of lower productivity. In addition, when independent engineers confront unfamiliar problems, the lack of a large consulting group to count on for help forces them to learn with the meter running while your company ends up footing the bill for their continuing training.

  • Have Access to Experts in Advanced Network Issues
    The majority of small service firms or freelance consultants specializing in small business network support may excel at delivering routine solutions but don't have the experience to deal cost-effectively with complicated network environments that have a variety of platforms, multiple locations, Voice over IP systems, mobile workers, interconnected accounting and operational software, data-driven web sites, and custom business applications. Progent's background with worldwide companies and Progent's extensive group of specialists can benefit your small business because enterprise networks are characteristically complicated, support problems demand thorough knowledge in many technical areas, and reaching an acceptable level of stability, availability, and protection requires industry-tested leading practices.

  • Build a Firm Basis for Seamless Growth
    Small companies often start with a network implemented on a shoestring budget. Without a carefully designed architecture, a sequence of improvised repairs commonly get thrown on top of a weak structure. As a company evolves, reliability and expandability problems can undermine the success of the business. These environments need proper assessment, intelligent strategic analysis, and in-depth expertise to upgrade to an IT environment that can act as the reliable foundation to handle current business needs and ease downstream growth.

  • Team with Solution Finders, Not Product Vendors
    Smaller companies require direction and education to navigate through an ever more complicated array of technology options available for enabling business growth and improving productivity. They do not need an IT consultant or service organization that tries to promote products. Progent avoids conflicted motives by not selling hardware and software. Progent offers services exclusively. This allows Progent to align consulting support services with the genuine needs of customers. Combining network consulting and product reselling can lead to a situation where the recommended solution is built around a predetermined technology instead of being driven by the actual requirements of a small business.
